My first experience with Build-A-Bear was this year. I've heard about it for years, but fear kept me away! All I could see were big price tags for stuffed animals that would gather dust. My mom gave my kids giftcards for Christmas this year. In an attempt to curb the costs, we set up some limits before we got to the store. It turned out to be a fun afternoon with the family, all the cousins saved their giftcards and we built bears together. I think the best part was building the animals--so we are going to be making a visit to the mall tomorrow to build bears for waiting kids. We get to build a bear and they will be donated to children waiting for their forever family. Check out the Build-A-Bear site for details.
