• Take Your Teddy Bear To Work Day

    October 10, 2012


    Tomorrow is Take Your Teddy Bear to Work Day, so you just have to send along one of your favorite furry friends with your parents to help them out. I always send one with both of my parents because they work in different places. And then they come home and show me pictures of all the things my bears helped out with all day.

    They also do this at World Bearquarters. Of course, there are already a lot of furry friends in that place every day. But on Take Your Teddy Bear to Work Day everyone brings their favorite furry friend and even the dogs (that’s right, they let dogs come to the office with them, how cool!) pose for pictures! Here are a couple of the pups from last year showing off their favorite furry friends helping them at work. Aren’t they adorable?

    The one on the left is Jose. He loves all furry friends and sleeps with them while his mom is working. Mia is on the right. She usually finds a favorite, like Clarice, and cuddles with that one for a while.

    Hope your furry friends have a beary busy day at work!




  • Virtual Furry Friends are back!

    October 08, 2012

    Hi guys,

    I just have to tell you that virtual furry friends are back, and this time there is a brand new virtual animal you can get to play with you in Bearville: a dinosaur! I’m a huge fan of dinos because, well, they are basically giant lizards and I just can’t get over how funny they look compared to animals we have today. All those spikes and leathery skin must have come in handy for lots of stuff.

    Did you know when you get a virtual friend they can walk around Bearville with you and play games? And when you first get them, you even get to pick out what color they are going to be and what pattern their virtual fur is going to have. My dino, of course, has virtual scales though, not fur. There are so many pawsibilities! This is also a pawfect gift, too. I would love for a friend (or one of my aunts or uncles) to give me a virtual furry friend to play with on Bearville.

    Have fun in Bearville, y’all!




  • Sock monkeying around!

    October 03, 2012

    I have beary big news, readers.

    Sock Monkey came out in stores today! I don’t know if you know this, but you can go to the Build-A-Bear Workshop website and read all about him! His name is Norm. Read his story and find out his favorite things to do at www.buildabear.com/animalstories.

    Did you know people have been making their own sock monkeys for more than 100 years? People used to make them for their kids to have something to play with and they used worn out socks that had holes in the heels. What a fun way to reuse and recycle!

    What kind of creative ways have you found to reuse old toys or clothes?

    Keep creating!
