Last month, we were in Florida enjoying all the wonderful things it has to offer, including shopping of course! There is an abundance of shopping in Florida from Outlet stores to designer malls. We spent one day in a fancy mall with my cousin’s kids. The oldest daughter wanted to drop her cash at Hollister, but the younger kids had their dream shopping trip too, Build-a-Bear. Each child picked out their favourite bear and eagerly watched as their new best friend got stuffed with fluff and a beating heart.
Fast forward to when we arrived home from vacation. Ironically, Build-a-Bear contacted me to see if my kids would like one of their lovable bears, the answer was without a doubt “YES”. As I opened up the package, the bear looked alarmingly familiar it was the exact same bear my daughter had picked out just 2 weeks before. If you’ve ever been to Build-A-Bear you know there are many, many choices of bears, dogs, cats and even alligators to choose from! In the end, after slowly going over all the choices, Princess picked the new Princess Bear. The Princess Bear comes with a crown and the Disney Princess on one foot.
Obviously my daughter loves her bears and the accessories. She get’s them dressed up and uses the flashing ward around the house. She treats these like her little babies, tucking them in at night and waking them in the morning. Unlike other toys, Build-a-Bear toys come to life right before their eyes, made by them especially for them, which I have found made for a stronger connection with the toys. We even registered the bear in store just in case she ever gets lost (another genius idea)!
