My daughter Natalie was already a HUGE fan of Build-A-Bear...her favorite creation being the Phillie Phanatic she made at a Phillies game (yes, they had a store right in the stadium so we couldn't resist).
So imagine her delight when she was sent this High School Musical bear:
Can you see the shock and excitement on her face?! The bear is just too adorable for words. Very cuddly and soooo stylish:
Check out the sweatsuit/hoodie complete the Wildcats logo. Pictures can't show you how cuddly this bear is too. Very huggable!

Take a close look around the bear's neck. Yes, it's an actual High School Musical dog tag necklace!
The backside of the dog tag necklace has the cast of the show.
Even the paws are adorable! She can even go online with the code on the bear's birth certificate and play with her bear in BuildABearVille. Click here to see a Flickr gallery filled with tons of High School Musical bear photos.
My family and I were recently in New York and Natalie begged and pleaded to go to the Build-A-Bear store there (which is the biggest Build-A-Bear workshop in the world!) to make a Statue of Liberty bear but we ran out of time. I almost cried with her. But we promised her it will be one of the first places we go when we go back to NY.
