Give a Gift to RememBEAR from Build-A-Bear Workshop - Review & Giveaway (Holiday Gift Guide)

Santa, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer are three childhood Christmas favorites!   I have always incorporated one or more of those holiday icons into my kids gifts every year. 

 
 
Last year my son and daughter each got an adorable moose (Holly and Hal) from Build-A-Bear Workshop, and this year my daughter is going to be getting Rudolph to add to her stuffed animal collection.

I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to review one of the new holiday friends from Build-A-Bear Workshop.  I was given my choice and had a difficult time choosing because they are all so cute and festive.  After much consideration... I chose Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

If my daughter had her way, she would love going to Build-A-Bear every week to choose, stuff, dress, and make a new stuffed, furry friend.  Her room has stuffed animals piled high in every possible location - corners, toy chest, on top of her dresser and or course, her bed!  There are some night when I don't see how she can fit on her bed to sleep with all of her furry friends.
My adorable daughter at Build-A-Bear!
 
Build-A-Bear Workshop has an adorable collection of Holiday Friends this year:

  • Santa
  • Clarice
  • Merry Mouse
  • Pinky the Penguin
  • Pengy the Penguin 
  • Frosty the Snowman
  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
 

Not only is Rudolph super cute, and soft - his nose lights up!  I absolutely love his adorable knit hat, scarf, and jacket.  And I think my favorite accessory is his cute little Rudolph slippers!  What child wouldn't love to find this under their tree on Christmas morning?

Getting to choose your new soft, furry friend is only part of the experience.  Choosing the perfect outfit, shoes, and accessories for your new friend is just as exciting!  When your child is finished making their new best friend, they get to take them home in a festive Gingerbread themed Cub Condo!

Whether you're a mom, aunt, or grandparent searching for the perfect stuffed animal for that special someone to a child discovering the joy of making a personalized furry friend, Build-A-Bear Workshop gives you an adorable array of gift options that are sure to bring smiles long after the holiday season is over.

It is difficult to choose which to choose at Build a Bear. I would be tempted to choose a holiday character, most likely Rudolph.

Kimberly said...

It is an easy choice on who to choose who to give a Build a Bear to. I would choose my youngest daughter Bethany.
