My mom & dad bought each of the kids a Build-A-Bear gift card for Christmas this year. They couldn't wait to go spend it the day after Christmas. We had SO MUCH FUN.
They each got to pick out a bear/animal to stuff, bathe, dress, & adopt. If you've never been to
Build-A-Bear, you've got to go at least once in your life. It's pricy, but worth it.
First the kids each picked an animal to be their new friend & had them specially stuffed to the softness they liked most.
After they stuff the bears/animals, the kids each pick out a little heart, kiss it, & make a wish on it. Then they place it inside their bears. Finally, the bears get sewn up & become your new squeezable friends.
After you have your new friend, you take them to the bath tub & bathe them & brush their fur until they are nice & soft & ready to be loved.
Then you get to pick out the perfect outfit for your stuffed animal.
|Lorien chose a Rapunzel costume for her new|
pretty white bear (with lights).
|Bladen chose a pirate costume for his grey bear.|
|Taya got a tinkerbell costume for her new blue bunny.|
|Craiger picked out a Woody costume for his|
little Monkey friend.
|and Cadence picked out a pink snowflake|
bear dressed in a winter coat & ice skates.
The kids LOVE their new friends. Thank you Mimi & Baba for a wonderful gift the kids will never forget.
|Lo's bear is really cool. You push it's hand &|
it light's up with LED lights INSIDE the bear.
Very cool if I do say so myself.
