Closed: Build A Bear Review/$25 Giveaway

The Beary Beginning:Build-A-Bear Workshop was born from an idea my friend Katie- who was 10 years old at the time-and I had when we were out shopping for stuffed toys. When we couldn't find the stuffed toy she wanted, she said, "These toys are so easy, we could make them." She meant we could do a craft project, but what I heard was much bigger.

Patriotic Pup and Beach Towel:

Build-A- Bear was kind enough to send Brookster one of their newest pups that will be available to buy on June 12th along with a beach towel that will be free with a $20 purchase (while supplies last) from June 6th to June 14th. The beach towel comes with a code that unlocks an item in the virtual world on Build-A-Bearville. Brookster named her pup Sparky. She is planning on taking it to the swimming pool tomorrow, so she can use her new beach towel.


Buy:
You can buy Patriotic Puppy on June 12th in stores and online for 16.99.

Win:

Build-A-Bear has been kind enough to give one lucky reader a $25 gift certificate to use in their stores or online.

Enter:

Go to Build-A-Bear and tell us what you would spend the $25 on. This must be done before any of the extra entries.

Brookster would like to thank Build-A-Bear for Sparky and her beach towel.

  1. Thank goodness my girls are asleep or they would be freaking out over the Build-a-Bear website and I would've never gotten off the computer!

    I would spend the $25.00 on either a coyote (my daughter's choice)or the zebra!

    I would love to win this. Considering how many BAB I've already bought over the last 6 years!!!

  5. my munchkins are in LOVE with build a bear! we would spend the gift card on the cute boxer puppy they have as a choice to make :)

  6. If I had a $25.00 gift card I would take my three-year old son to the mall and put the money towards letting him pick something he really wanted. He has a limited edition Build-A-Bear Penguin, but he was only one-year old when he got it..too young to put it together himself. I think he would really love the chance to build his own bear (or lobster or lamb).
