As of 2016, Build-A-Bear offers more than 30 different animal shells to choose from including bears, dinosaurs and a line of limited edition animals, with prices starting at about $12. After selecting the animal, record a Build-A-Sound message or select a pre-recorded message to add to the stuffed animal. Select a heart, and place it inside the animal, and then, with the help of a Bear Builder associate, add as much stuffing to the animal as desired. Next, watch as the animal is stitched up using the Build-A-Bear patented pre-laced system.
Take the newly made stuffed animal to the Build-A-Bear bathtub to fluff the stuffing. Then, if desired, select one of over 100 outfits to dress the stuffed animal in. The last step to making a stuffed animal at a Build-A-Bear Workshop is to give the new toy a name, create a birth certificate, and register the stuffed animal in the Find-A-Bear ID tracking system, a safeguard that helps to return lost toys. The Build-A-Bear website offers a store locator to find the nearest Build-A-Bear Workshop.Learn more about Toys
