Build-A-Bear Workshop Holiday 2010 Review and $25 Gift Card Giveaway

Shop BuildaBear

Build-A-Bear Workshop has launched some awesome new bears for the holiday season including the adorable Rudolph collection. Not a big fan of the movie myself (shocker I know!) Hubs is a devotee as he grew up on it and I know many of you guys are probably like that and will enjoy the fact that you can get one of the Rudolph Collection – Rudolph, Clarice or Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster.

If you’ve never been made a bear, this is a great time to do so. Long nights with not a lot to do make for a great opportunity to take the kids along and make a bear. They’ve got a bunch of cuties from the Fairisle Snow Hugs Teddy to the their awesome Star Wars teddies.

This year too they launched the Small Fry bears which are little bears in a cute fry-like box that are priced at $9.99 and great for teenagers or just small gifts.

I remember when I first went to Build-A-Bear Workshop this year and got to make Isaac a bear to bring home. I told them that I was a little cynical as to whether a 2 year old boy would want his own bear. Well, I dressed him in a Woody outfit and wouldn’t ya know it but he loves it. In fact when I got to check out the monkey again in the Small Fry version this is what happened.

He now sleeps with Monkey and baby Monkey!
