This was my first time to Build A Bear.
When I walked in, I was a little terrified, at first, because the lady working was SUPER peppy. Like, beyond normal peppy. She was probably in her 30’s and she had a little Build A Bear backpack of some sorts on her. I had Joshua on my back in the Ergo and she said to me, “Oh! We both have a baby on our back! Although, mine is a little different than yours.” She then started laughing. I smiled like I do and was (and still am) confused by her. She was sweet though.
I don’t know what got in to me that day, but it was a total spur of the moment thing. Lucas is really into black bears right now, so on a whim I decided to see what they had. Turns out they had a super cute black bear for only (just kidding) $15.
Obviously, the whole point of Build a Bear is that you are “building” the bear and getting an experience, not just buying a stuffed animal. I think Lucas was a little young but it was still fun.
This guy was ca-razy. Again, something about the peppy skip in his voice and his excessively happy spirit. He was asking Lucas to kiss the heart and run the heart on his head. Then turn around and…. Lucas was so confused. He was like “who are you and why are you talking like that?” Ha.
Feeling down today? Head into Build A Bear for a quick trip into Happy Land that will lift your mood in minutes!
Okay, sorry. I’ll stop.
Then we washed the bear. Fun.
It’s probably short lived, but Lucas really loves his black bear right now. He will find him and go, ” oh hi black bear! How are you doing black bear?” And then, ” You need to go night night black bear? Okay black bear.” It is SO cute!
He takes him on walks in his wagon. I tell you, that wagon goes everywhere with us.
I’m glad we got that Build A Bear parenting experience out of the way. I don’t think we’ll do that for another 4 years or so.
Have you been to Build A Bear? Thoughts?
