My little girl has loved Build-A-Bear for forever, so when she received a huge box at the door from them the other day, words cannot describe her excitement (she has a birthday coming up this Friday, too, so the timing was perfect).
Inside the cute cardboard house was the brand new, snowy white Owl!
There was also a 3-D Scavenger Hunt Map with 3-D glasses with a special code to use online in Build-A-Bearville. And Natalie cannot get enough of both the owl and the hunt!
Not only is the owl fluffy and cuddly, but it has a head that spins all the way around, a feature which Natalie found very cool. She's been taking her new owl friend, whom she has dubbed "Owlen" (uniquely pronounced "Oh-lin" though), everywhere with her and sleeps with it at night.
I have to say this is one of my own favorite Build-A-Bear creatures. The speckled "fur" looks like real feathers and the "beak" is so adorable.
The owl sells for $18 online, but you can win a $25 gift card to use on the owl, or toward any other purchase at Build-A-Bear, right here!
