Bear Days [Jul. 13th, 2009|09:46 am]
A Community to Discuss Build-A-Bears!

[mood |excitedexcited]

Hi guys!

Your friendly neighborhood community owner here. Sorry I've been so quiet and behind on updating the community info page. Life is handing me too many lemons lately, and not enough sugar. But I'm getting SOME lemonaide made!

I hope everyone had a good day on Friday. Did you know that was Teddy Bear picnic day? I'm sorry I didn't remind everyone. I promise to do better next year!

We have two more specific Teddy Bear days coming up; Teddy Bear Day on September 9th, and Have A Party With Your Bear Day on November 16th. Make plans and post pictures!

I would also like to encourage everyone to consider the Teddy Bear Day as a great day to donate New or VERY Gently Used bears (BABW or not) to your local law enforcement or emergency response agency. In my state it's called the "Teddy Bear Patrol". I've not found a single, united website, but you can either check in your area, or just call the non-emergency line of the agency of your choice. Teddy bears, as we all know, are often carried to provide a comfort to children who have experienced some sort of trauma.

And since this Teddy Bear Day is 09/09/09 I thought we'd make a special effort! Do a "Bear Drive" at your work or even with your class. See how many you can get together, and post it here! Let's not only be fans, but let's do something good with it! I will, with both my co-workers AND my social club.

Hi all!

I'm Bec, 29 years old and I'm from Sydney, Australia. My daughter who will be 4 next month is an AVID COLLECTOR and she has close to 40 of these cute little bears!

I was just curious - is anyone selling?? There is A LOT of bears that you guys have in the States, that we don't have. :o( 

Also, would anyone be willing to purchase some for me if I send payment via PayPal before you purchase? I will also reimburse you for any parking fees or fuel incurred along with postage to Australia! I'd buy them on the US site but it will cost me $50 to ship 1 bear - no thank you! LOL

Hope to talk to you all soon! <3

Anyone interested? [Feb. 10th, 2009|10:13 pm]

Hi everyone. ^_^ I collect build-a-bears and I have about 10 or so right now. Most of mine are the beary limited editions. I managed to get #4,095 on one of the gem of a friend bears this year. I was excited. x3;;

Well I've been very busy lately and in a bit of a money crunch. I got a build-a-bear gift card that's unused if anyone is interested. It has $30. If anyone is willing to pay around $30 for it I'll send it to them in a card of some sort or if you shop online I could just give you the number on it :] . I'd prefer paypal if you do want to buy it. ^^

Hi everyone! [Dec. 1st, 2008|07:58 pm]

Hi!  First-time poster here.  I work at Build-a-Bear and love it to death.  When I first got hired, my coworkers said that the novelty would wear off soon, but nope!  I still love it every bit as much as when I first walked into my store over a year ago.  Part of it, I think, is that I love our products. So far, I've made bears of Sesshomaru from the anime Inuyasha, the Joker from The Dark Knight, Ed Elric from the anime Fullmetal Alchemist for a friend, L from the anime Death Note for another friend, and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII for a customer, who marveled at the fact that I was sewing for him.  ^_^  I'm also working on making bears of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy--in fact, the paint on Ivy's tights is drying as I type!  Also Hiei from the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, but shh!  That one's for a Christmas present.

Anyway, if anyone's interested, here's Sesshomaru:

And the Joker:

Hope you like!

A Request for Help [Nov. 10th, 2008|05:43 pm]
A Community to Discuss Build-A-Bears!

Can any US memebers possibly purchase for me the knight in shining armour outfit? It's a US only item and I really want it for my Gawain bear I intend to build. I'd of course pay shipping, handling, for the outfit and even throw in some yummy candian maple treats into the mix. I can pay paypal or check, whichever you prefer. Just let me know :) Thanks!

Okay, buildabear_luvers! It's time to put your pictures where your hearts are!

Okay, I fess up. I'm a busy person, and though I had intended otherwise, I didn't get any new, good pictures of me with my first or favorite plush or BABW.

Instead, I offer The Great Flumpkyn:

The picture is via my cell phone... so I apologize about the quality.

Anyone else care to share?
