Celebrate #NationalTeddyBearDay with Build-A-Bear Workshop

Build-A-Bear Workshop is probably Eliza’s favourite shop in the whole wide world.

If you have not visited a Build-A-Bear workshop before, it is an interactive destination for creating personalised furry friends, from Super Heroes to My Little Ponies and everything cute and cuddly in between.

Eliza has been busy collecting her Frozen Bears and My Little Ponies, whilst Isaac has the Marvel Superhero team and Sebastian decided on Chase from Paw Patrol on his first visit earlier this year.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is inviting guests to celebrate the brand’s favourite holiday, National Teddy Bear Day, on 9th September with £5 teddy bears, all while helping children across the globe.

To mark the occasion, guests of Build-A-Bear Workshop stores can make their own limited-edition National Teddy Bear Day bear for just £5 on Friday 9th September.

This is the first time the brand has created a commemorative bear for National Teddy Bear Day. Two additional bears will also be available for £5 each: Lil’ Vanilla Bean Cub and Lil’ Hazelnut Cub. Each guest can purchase a maximum of five £5 bears, while supplies last.

In the spirit of the brand’s mission to “add a little more heart to life,” for every £5 bear purchased on 9th September, Build-A-Bear will donate a furry friend to Childhood First in the UK.

We celebrate teddy bears every day, but Build-A-Bear Workshop is commemorating National Teddy Bear Day with exclusive £5 furry friends and a heart-felt opportunity to share the hug of a teddy bear with kids in need,” said Gina Collins, chief marketing officer, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “With the support of our charitable partners around the world, we hope to help as many children as possible experience the joy of a new furry friend during this fun, in-store event.”

During the week of National Teddy Bear Day, teddy bear fans can:

    • Wow, I’m just reading up on them now and they look like an amazing charity.

      Abuse recovery charities don’t get as much attention as abuse awareness organisations, but they deserve to and I think they need to. I’ll be spreading the word about this one. People having somewhere to turn to for help while they’re still children can make so much difference to their recovery prospects, and yet it’s rarely talked about.

      Thanks a lot for the post; I wouldn’t have found out about Childhood First without it.

  1. Childhood First – I bought my kids 2 bears on Friday, had no idea about this event until I walked past the store. Needless to say they both love Nina (Leah’s bear) and Super Smiley (Lewis’s Bear).

  2. Childhood First – I love that they help charities too. It’s one of the things that encorages me to buy a bear from Build a bear than elsewhere

  3. Childhood First. That’s a really lovely idea! I’m desperate to get one of these for my son, I might take him as a birthday present I think. A bit pricey though, the prize would be great. Thanks for the opportunity.
