Build-A-Bear Blossom Bunny Review and Giveaway



My little girl has been a long-time fan of Build-A-Bear and has amassed quite a collection over the years. So she was thrilled when, thanks to Build-A-Bear, she got to take a trip to the store to build the new, limited edition Blossom Bunny, part of the Collectibunny® line. (There's also an adorable limited edition Cheerful Cheeks Chick available)



First, my little girl chose a heart, rubbed it in her hand, made a wish, then gave it to the attendant to put inside the bunny. One of my favorite parts of Build-A-Bear is how your child gets to give their animal a hug test to see if it's stuffed just right. If it's too firm or too soft, the attendant will make the adjustments needed until it's perfectly huggable.



After Natalie picked out an outfit for her bunny, she headed over to the "dressing room" to dress it:



Here she is at home with her new bunny, Valerie. So cute!



Until April 4, while supplies last, kids get a free Easter basket and candy with every $20 purchase. And of course, as with all animals made at Build-A-Bear, your child can bring their creation to life at Build-A-Bearville.com.

I love the fact they always have something new and their bears are so soft and cuddly. Not to mention this bunny is too cute.

I love that it's customizable to what the child wants. They can pick the animal and outfit along with the firmness. Thanks.

Build A Bear has been such a great concept from the start! I like how each child can pick and create their own "friend!" Each one is unique just like the child creating it.

I think its like a magical place. When my oldest daughter was sixteen she had her sweet sixteen at build a bear on her birthday with four close friends so they would have a bear each born on her birthday. My little one just loves looking and dreaming about her christmas list. I guess the thing i like most about build a bear is it is a place that you can share with your kids of all ages and than your grandkids.

Although she is only 4, she wants to go look at the outfits every time we go to the mall. She would love to make a new friend for her little sister (she hesitates to share hers)
