There is even the option to make them with an added heart. It’s a great place for children to bring their imaginations to life. Build-A-Bear Workshop®’s can be found across the UK, with 8 in London.

Build-A-Bear is a great stopping off to make your kids happy and spirited again and let you sit back and let your kids take the ropes on a good time. Plus, in the end of your fun visit you have a friend to bring home with you!.

So I went to my local Derby store with my son,niece and nephew to experience the delights of build a bear it doesn't matter what age you are everyone loves their teddy bear. My niece is particularly fond of her build a bear and any opportunity to go there sees her beaming with delight.
My happy little niece !

My niece loves Build A Bear!

We were ably looked after by our Build A Bear leader Sara who took the children through the process of choosing their Build A Bear bear and dressing them and not forgetting that all important bear heart! The children we given a choice of two bear priced at £9 which is  a very good price for an engaging magical experience for a child.

My niece took control in "Stuff Me" where the bears got gently stuffed   full of soft cloud like fluffy material so they were all lovely and squishy now the child/ adult has a choice of the level of squishyness as the bear can be made as squishy or as form as they like. The hearts were inserted into the bears and we all had to partake in the bear promise. Sara did a good job of coaxing my son who at first felt a bit awkward in surrounded by all that fluffiness.

When it came to  "Dress Me" stage of the Build A Bear visit, there was so much choice its a must have for the fashionista at heart.

So much choice for a young fashionista!
