This year, I’m excited to announce that Build-A-Bear Workshop will celebrate two major milestones! The first milestone is their 15th birthday! How exciting is that? Back in 1997, Build-a-Bear first opened their doors in the St. Louis Galleria. Here they are 15 years later as a global brand, and most of all, a company with a heart! The second impressive milestone is the celebration of selling their 100 millionth furry friend. Amazing!
It is truly an accomplishment the 100 million little “friends” that Build-A-Bear has helped create. Friendship is definitely something to be celebrated! Reminds of the special friends in my life who have come to my aid in any time of need. I still remembering being in labor in the hospital all alone and nervous. Then one of my best friends popped her head in and sat with me and kept me calm during the birth. Would not have been able to do it without her! This is for sure why “Friends Count”!
Speaking of birthdays, we actually live within walking distance Build-a-Bear and I can’t wait to take my son there on his first birthday this Spring to “build” a furry friend. He goes absolutely nuts for real life dogs, so I’m sure that might be his pick. Or really whatever color jumps out at him! Hopefully this is a tradition we can have for the years to come!
Build-A-Bear is the perfect place to host a birthday party! You can set your own price for the party. Plus, there is no mess for us parents to clean up afterward, and a Build-A-Bear Party Leader will keep the little guests entertained! Head on over to Build-A-Bear’s site to see how you can celebrate a birthday with this awesome company that is celebrating their birthday!
