I have a lot of beary important and super fun stuff to tell you. So first, this weekend at every Build-A-Bear Workshop store, they are having their Kooky Spooky Bear Bash®! You know how much I love parties, and this one is one of my all-time faves because you get to come dressed in your Halloween costume! I know, right? Plus, they’ll have fun jokes and giveaways, so bring your friends to join in the fun.
Okay, the second thing is that Halloween is next week, so if you haven’t figured out your costume already, I have a couple of really fun ideas that you could try. You could be a puppy in a box of puppies for sale. Just cut the top and bottom off a cardboard box big enough to fit around you, attach suspenders so it hangs over your shoulders (so you can walk around and get candy), and paint For Sale on the box. Use the leftover cardboard, maybe some construction paper, and paint to make a few puppy heads and attach them to the inside of the box so it looks like they are sitting in the box. Then give yourself puppy ears by attaching some felt ears to a headband and wear a brown shirt and have an adult help you paint some whiskers and a nose on your face. Then you’re a puppy in the box of puppies for sale!
The other idea I had, that you can totally borrow, is to be a picnic. I know, you’re thinking, umm…what? But think about it, if you cut a hole in the middle of a tablecloth big enough for your head to fit through, like you’re wearing it, then all you’d have to do is (with an adult’s help, of course) attach a bunch of fake fruit, leftover (and cleaned out) juice boxes, paper plates, maybe some fake sandwiches from a dollar store. And BAM! You’re a picnic!
See? You don’t have to do something everyone else is doing, just use your imagination and you’ll be able to come up with a really unique and cool idea for Halloween that no one else has thought of.
Have fun, and be safe!
School is cool!

What’s up, people?
I’m not sure if you have seen him yet, but a brand new furry friend (plus some adorable new smallfrys) arrived at Build-A-Bear Workshop over the weekend. I’m calling them the School Cool Bunch!
All the smallfrys, or smartfrys (tee hee), come with those bearrific glasses! These guys are just so cute!
I also think they are quite chic. Hmm… I wonder if I can find some of those glasses for myself? J
15th Birthday Bash!
October 17, 2012
Party time is just around the corner! Build-A-Bear Workshop is celebrating its official 15th birthday this weekend in all stores, which means you can go to your nearest store either Saturday or Sunday to help them celebrate! You and your family and friends will all get super pawsome party hats, plus I know a beary huggable mascot will also be making appearances; you probably know him as Bearemy®.
One of the other really cool things I love is that the first 100 people into the stores this weekend get to make a special bear for free to be donated to a charity in their local community. Wouldn’t it feel great to give another kid a beary special furry friend that’s made just for them?
Build-A-Bear Workshop gives back a lot and this event is called Stuffed With Hugs®, which is kind of perfect, right?
Happy BEARthday, Build-A-Bear Workshop!
