Creating childhood gifts that can be cherished for years to come can be an exciting and fun experience. Children adore the experience that Build-A-Bear Workshop offers. As soon as a child walks in the door they are greeted with enticing primary colors and walls covered in plush creations as well as decorative accents for those toys. Creating a Build-A-Bear can be a family involved activity.

The process is rather simple and fun. The child will walk into the store and be greeted by a Build-A-Bear representative. The representative will ask the child what type of animal they would like to bring to life. This part also involves the parent or adult who brought the child into the store. The stuffed animals are available for various price points. Once the child decides upon a animal to stuff the representative will walk them over to the stuffing machine. There is a small slit on the back of the animal where it is placed on the stuffing machine. The employee will pump a pedal and the fluff will begin to stuff the animal. Once the animal is partially stuffed the child can place a plush heart inside. The heart can play music, make sound or simply just be a basic plush heart. The employee will finish stuffing the animal and then stitch up the back of the animal.

Once the plush toy is ready the child will be able to select accessories such as clothing to dress the toy with. Some toys can be linked to apps and games can be played on smart devices. The toys depicted on the app will match the toy the child just created. A Build-A-Bear plush toy is a great way to have a memorable experience with a child while creating a personalized toy the child will enjoy playing with. Purchasing accessories and added features can be pricey. Adults who wish to save a bit of money at these stores will be able to obtain Groupon deals and other online coupon codes.
