Build a ..........Spiderman????

First pick out a sound, please don't pick Hannah Montana singing!


Brush and Blow Dry for a really long time!

Making a bear is so tiring........ time to sleep!

Back up! "Polar Bear/Spiderman" that is his name even though he is a Panda Bear needs to go for a ride!

Will had a complete blast building his Panda/Spiderman, who knew they even have Spiderman clothes for the bears. I think the woman that created Build-A-Bear is a genius, why didn't I think of it??????

Did you know that while shopping for Beanie Babies she came up with the concept of Build -A -Bear, she has a very interesting story and the company is still going strong, it surely isn't a fad at all. Every time I walk by a store they have a line out the door! You can read more about her story here. It just shows you that your dream can turn into a multi-million dollar empire.

So tell me how many Build A Bears do your kiddos have?

Actually none. She was too old when this came out. However, I have been several times with my nieces and nephews and I look forward going with my grandchildren. I wish I could think of something like that. Dang.

Love the pictures by the way. He is precious.

I think we have 5 of those in the house. The one you made is monstrous!

Andrea said...

My 8 year old would love to make one....where is the closest to us? I guess I should prepare to make a trip for my littlest one too when he gets old enough. That was so cute with the spiderman.

Jody said...

We have 5 - my two oldest have 2 each and they made one for their brother when he was born. My son also has the Panda Bear. It's a pretty fun experience...

Kori said...

Oh gee How many? I think each one has 3.

Love the sleeping picture. I mean come on... How sweet is that?

Ali said...

Zero! But ask me again this summer--I'm thinking going to Build a Bear would be a good summer activity for the boys before they get too old for stuffed animals. I'm guessing mine are gonna pick dogs in police uniforms!

Brooks said...

my oldest has a couple, only b/c her grandma took her. my other 3 don't have any. Its too expensive when you have 4 kids!

I love that bear!!

Heather of the EO said...

Just one big cookie monster over here. He says "I love you." Kind of freaky, huh? :)

So cute that there are spiderman costumes. Now I'm tempted to go, my boys would LOVE that.

Let's see...several bears, a pink poodle, a yellow cat, a beagle, a husky...that may be it! We love Build a Bear! Happy ATWT!

The Mom said...

So cute! We have the Batman outfit...and we probably have a dozen of the big animals, and another dozen of the little ones (you could buy them at Target, came in a kit)...slight addiction!

CaseyDeuce said...

We have one that we made for my daughter while I was pregnant with her. I'd love to take her to do her own one day, she's old enough now at 4, but the money just isnt there right now!

Faith said...

Great pictures, we love build a bear! You're nicer than I am though. I ban my kids from picking the heart with the sounds.

We LOVE Build-A-Bear. My son has three - one from Kansas City, one from Oakbrook, IL, and a third from Merrillville, IN. I even have one of my own that I dress for the holidays, hehe!

MOMMY-MOMO said...

Bee and Rose said...

How cute is Polar Bear/Spiderman!!
We just went there last week (see my Build-a-What Hot-tie Topic post and you will see a photo of Heartsie our pink monkey..)

We have (and this is sadly true..) 25 build a bear animals and tons of clothing. We are just stupid! Oy!

Thank heavens for their rewards program and their coupons!!!!!!

Will looks so cute picking out his build a spiderman :) We have so many at our house, I think the girls think everytime we go to the mall they have to get one.

Ann said...

Kristen I agree, the woman behind Build-A-Bear is a genius!
We have 4 friends in our home. For my oldest it's puppies all the way. For my youngest it's fluffy cats in pink, pink, pink tutu's.
(I like going there, I have to confess. I think it's just adorable.)

Lori @ The Downs Gang said...

I think we are up to 10 i bribe for good grades.....lol

BluRayn said...

My boys each have one...I think. Maybe two. But if it were up to them they'd be going all the time! I think we'll be going again soon as a reward!

Proud Mommy said...

Ummm.....3 bears, one hello kitty, shrek, 3 dogs, rudolph, valentine puppy....I think that's it. My kids LOVE BAB!!!

GpawLP said...

Sometimes a guy just has to throw his SpiderBear in the old pickup and head out on the open highway!! :) drive careful little buddy!!! :)

The Frugal Angel-Guided Psychic said...

Oh, how cute!!! We've never gone but it really looks like fun... for the kids ;)

Mel Fraase said...

Thanks for coming by my place!
Sadly, we have no BABW in our area...my daughter sees commercials and wants to go. I know we'd have fun! We DO have lots of WEBKINZ around here.

Shannon said...

I think both of my girls have 3 each... its been awhile since we've been to BABW.
