We love Build-A-Bear Workshop at our house. Both of my kids have had trips there and we have a nice selection of animals and clothing from there. They always have an amazing selection of animals and accessories to choose from and there is nothing like the experience of their interactive make your own stuffed animal experience.
In all the years I have been their customer, I never realized that they work with the Girl Scouts to help promote the youth leadership program. I was never a Girl Scout because my parents schedule and finances made it impossible, I love all the great things that the program does for girls. The self confidence, of course the selling of the best cookies which teaches them business and people skills. I think I am one of their best customers when the cookies come out!
I just received an opportunity to do a review of one of their new Build-A-Bear Workshops Thin Mints Bear. Let me just say I lost the bear immediately to my son. He recognized the Build-A-Bear box that you get when you bring one home from their store and that was all it took. This bear is so cute, the pads of its hands, feet, nose and ears are all a light mint green. One of its feet has a cookie on it and the other has the Girl Scout symbol. They always put so much detail into their products, it just amazes me. Our little bear came with khaki shorts, white t-shirt, white sneakers and of course the Girl Scout vest. They even come with stickers so you can add your troop number to the vest.
They actually launched their first make-your-own Girls Scouts 100th Anniversary Bear last March in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts. They have several licensed products to choose from so you can have a nice selection of outfits for your bear.
Make sure you keep an eye out for this cute Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear which will be hitting stores soon!!
I love that they have great products and love when we visit their store for the entire interactive make your own stuffed animal experience, but it is nice to know that I can order and ship these to family and friends. It is great to support a company that gives you a memory to share with your children, knowing that they give back makes me glad I have supported them all these years.
I received the above mentioned product in order to do a review, however all opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.
