Get the Gift that Smells Bear-y Good at Build-A-Bear Workshop

Wouldn't you want something cuddly and sweet for Valentine's Day? Build-A-Bear Workshop came out with candy-scented friends that you can give your loved one this Valentine's Day or any day you feel like giving and we are totally in love with them.

disclosure: we received a package of Build-A-Bear furry friends and some other sweet stuffs.

I used to think that Build-A-Bear Workshop was merely a store where you can get stuffed animals and buy clothes to go with it until we got to experience it ourselves when we finally had kids. The kids (and kid at heart) can stay there, customize a furry friend and enjoy the interactive store, and now you can even get candy scented bears and buy chocolates and candies too.

Check out our Build-A-Bear Workshop Store Experience, we got to record our daughter's 2 yr. old voice and put it inside her bear and we still have it 'til this day. And another thing to note is your kid/s can also have a Build-A-Bear Workshop birthday at their store. In our case, a trip to the mall is not complete without going to their store, every.. single.. time!!!!

Which Scented Build-A-Bear will you give or want to receive?

My favorite and big sis fave too is Sweet Hugs Swirl Bear. She came in a colorful tutu and sweetheart shirt. Besides having a swirly colorful fur she has hearts on her foot too. You can get the heart XOXO she is holding separately just as all her clothes. But you should get the sparkly shoes she has, it's very cute. All the Build-A-Bear shoes are actually sturdy that the bears can actually stand just like in my photo.

Little sis (the toddler) loves Sweet Heart Hugs Bear. Because she loves everything red. She has a red fur with pink hearts all over her. She has a sequined black shoe, a heart skirt, XOXO white shirt and who wouldn't want a denim jacket on? She's totally cool especially with her black headband on, my daughter wore it herself so I wasn't able to take a picture of it. But it's definitely a perfect Valentine's gift.

Sweet Hugs Pup on the other hand looks like he's about to go on a skateboard. I want to have a big version of his high tops sneakers and hoodie.

They all smell like candy but in a good subtle way so you won't feel like it's so empowering when you have it beside you. When we woke up in the morning the whole living room smelled like candy though, pretty yummy.

Build-A-Bear products are well made. We still have all our previous bears and bunnies and even the recording device hasn't lose it battery after 3 years. One time though the thread on the back of the bear got loose coz' my daughter was trying to pry it open (it's where they tie it together after stuffing it), we brought it back to the store and they fix it at no cost to us.

I do wish that they eventually offer a kids version of the clothes though so our kids can have a matching attire with their bears, especially the tutus. That's the first thing we did when we saw the tutu, to check if they have it online.

I suggest getting your loved one a Build-A-Bear scented furry friend whether they are young or not so young. If you visit the store you can record your voice so they can put it inside your bear (highly recommended) and do other fun stuff.

If you order online they currently have a Build A Bear coupon code for 2 for $35, using the code FEBRUARYFRIENDS and SHIPVDAY16 to get ground shipping for only $3.

Also check out their candy line. The Sweethearts® Candies are really cute. We have yet to open our chocolate bar (currently buy 1 get 1) and their fruit snack, can I keep it all to myself (shh.. don't tell the kids), LOL.

  1. I do not have a build a bear right now, but I do not know why I have not gotten one for my daughter. The XOXO one looks so cute, and I like that I can record my daughter's voice and she can hear it! I need to get her one!

    1. She's gonna love it and love you for it as well.

  2. I would love to get the dog for our 4-year-old son. Hunter has Spinal Muscular Atrophy, it's like ALS in babies, so he's very limited in his movements. He loves dogs, and his other BAB's. He has the frog from Rainforest Cafe, and a T-Rex from T-Rex Cafe. He's slept with the dinosaur the last couple of nights.

  3. My daughter has a cute Minnie Mouse themed bear I got her for her birthday! It says I love you when you press it belly too! She absolutely loves it!

  4. Wow!! I didn't know they had scented animals! Cool! We don't have any Build-A-Bears right now! Thanks for the honest review! kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  5. It looks like she had a blast. I used to have one when I was in Houston, but I don't have a store where I am in Arkansas.

  6. These are so cute. And they smell good. Wow! Build A Bear is great!

  7. These are adorable, I love their outfits. My grandson would love the Sweet Hugs Pup. He has a monkey from Build a Bear that has Spider man jammies and slippers.

  8. (Get the Gift that Smells Bear-y Good at Build-A-Bear Workshop) Build a Bear workshop is such a neat place to go and visit. The kids just love this awesome store-
