Before Alleigh was even born Dustin and I began visiting our local Build-A-Bear Workshop to make her adorable stuffed animals for her jungle themed nursery. Once she was old enough to understand the process she wanted to visit the Build-A-Bear Workshop all the time. In fact now when we are shopping at the mall it is very hard to get out of there without at least making a visit to browse around the store. Of course the girls usually can convince us to let them make a new friend… the process is just too much fun.
We end up leaving with two happy girls each carrying a Build-A-Bear box. There are so many Build-A-Bear’s in our house that it’s starting to look like a Workshop too, hehe. With all those stuffed animals floating around Willow still only has one which she received from her Nan, but at fifteen months old I thought it was time her collection started growing.
I was so excited to see that the new holiday products had launched at Build-A-Bear Workshop including Frosty the Snowman, Wishes Santa, Merry Mouse, Clarice, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I knew Willow would love any of these Christmas Classic friends to cuddle, but decided Rudolph would be best. When he arrived at our home I was thrilled to see that he looked exactly like the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer I love watching on television every year.
Rudolph measures 15” tall and has super soft brown fur with black eyes and I love that he can stand on all four legs. One of the best parts of making your Build-A-Bear is dressing them and Rudolph sure was styling when he arrived at our house. He was all decked out in a Christmas sweater, hat, and scarf plus a jingle bell collar and slippers that looked just like him.
Of course Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer just has to have a glowing nose! This was Willow’s favorite part… she kept grabbing his nose and smiling.
Willow simply adores Rudolph. She even thought his taste in slippers was so great that she took a pair for herself, hehe. I suppose that is one perk to having such tiny baby feet. She is loving her new Build-A-Bear so much that the only problem I foresee is now leaving the Build-A-Bear Workshop with three boxes on every visit! I think Clarice should be next… naturally.
With Christmas right around the corner Build-A-Bear is the perfect gift for that special someone in your life. You could make one or give a gift card to give the gift of the Build-A-Bear Workshop experience. I know my girls would be stoked to find a Build-A-Bear gift card tucked into their stocking on Christmas morning.
