When I was 13 my family took me to the Mall of America, (you know you are a teenager now, you hang out at the mall. Cute right?) which is where I first heard of Build-A-Bear. Of course, I got a dark brown stuffed bear in a red velvet dress. I named her Hannah and yes I still have her!
Since then, Build a bear has become a household name and is adding new fun characters all of the time. If you aren’t familiar with Build A Bear, I shall tell you!
At Build-A-Bear Workshop®, our mission is to bring the Teddy Bear to life. An American icon, the Teddy Bear brings to mind warm thoughts about our childhood, about friendship, about trust and comfort, and also about love.
So what does that mean? Well, you chose your toy, you stuff it to how soft you want it, and you customize it however you want. We have one in my house dressed in Army BDU’s ( a mother’s day gift from my brother while he was in Afghanistan.)
Build a bear is more than just bears too! They have ponies, bunnies, and cats!
It was this reason and more that I was so excited to be able to work with Build a Bear for this review.
I will be reviewing Jazzy Frog. The photo on the website didn’t do Mr. Jazzy Frog justice. I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled him out of the classic build a bear gift box.
Jazzy is bright green and cute as can be. My favorite thing about him is how very soft he is. He is also fuzzy and he feels amazing to hug and cuddle. I have to admit, the day I got Jazzy Frog, I was having a pretty awful day and I happened to be holding him as I was talking to someone about my bad day, and I found myself squeezing Jazzy Frog to my chest. Build a bear is cheaper than therapy!
