Build-A-Bear Workshop, where the teddy bear comes to life . . . and where parties are a hit!
Last week, we had the pleasure (and when I say pleasure, I mean the absolute pleasure) of throwing a Children’s Day party at Build-A-Bear Workshop. Now before I lose you to the mystery of Children’s Day, let me explain.
Each year in my household, we celebrate Children’s Day. It is a floating holiday that is spent enjoying the blessing of our kids and doing fun activities all day long. It usually concludes with a kids’ choice dinner out and ice cream.
I love spending an entire day dedicated to fun. Often as moms, we are busy focused on what is next on the schedule, what load of laundry will prevent someone from going naked or simply what to serve for dinner. Children’s Day is not only a blast for the kids, it is permission for moms to put down the list and enjoy your children, celebrating the little blessing they are.
So for Children’s Day this year, we grabbed some cousins and threw a Children’s Day Party at Build-A-Bear! Our experience was wonderful and I am so excited to share it with you.
As in our case, and I’m sure across the country at other Build-A-Bear Workshop locations, the staff clearly love what they do. They were happy and ready for fun. And they didn’t even mind when a child changed their clothing selection (a’hem, mine).
Dressing the bears was a lot of fun. Build-A-Bear offers a wide variety of options, not only in styles for boys and girls, but also in prices. You can go all out or you can pick out something simple and accessorize.
Before we left, the children were led in a promise to take good care of their new friends. They were given birth certificates and the well-recognized Build-A-Bear Workshop box. (I just love this box!)
A Couple other Bonuses: You can get free bows on future visits. Build-A-Bear offers repairs in-store and if they are unable to fix the loved animal, it is sent to the bear hospital (and comes back in a hospital gown!). They also have a Find-A-Bear ID program so that if your friend is ever lost, there is a barcode inside the bear to direct him back to you.
When you go, be sure to join their loyalty program and earn points towards gift certificates and free items. Throwing a party is a quick way to add up points.
Special thanks to Amy, who set up everything for us. You were great to work with! And to Rachel, Mesa, Lori and Sandra from our local store, you made our experience wonderful! Thank you ever so much!
We are still all smiles when we think back to our party at Build-A-Bear. We left with great memories and new bear friends . . . who incidentally, are still sleeping with the kids.
