• April Fool's Day jokes

    March 28, 2012

    Hey guys,

    Since April Fool’s Day is on Sunday, and I’m not a fan of hurting people’s feelings just to play a prank on them, I thought I’d share some jokes with you. You can borrow these for April Fool’s Day if you want.

    ·         What did the baby corn say to the mama corn?

    o   Where is pop corn?

    ·         Why do dogs like trees so much?

    o   They like the bark!

    ·         Why didn’t the mummy want to go on vacation?

    o   Because he didn’t want to relax and unwind!

    ·         What does a bee wear to the beach?

    o   A bee-kini.

    (I have to admit, that last one is my favorite.)

    Have a great day!




  • Autism Speaks

    March 26, 2012

    Hey everyone!

    Starting today until the end of April, Guests who make a purchase at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores in the United States or Canada, or online, can donate to Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks is a foundation that helps more people learn about autism and helps raise money for research to hopefully find a cure for it one day.

    Did you know that this is the 8th year in a row that Build-A-Bear Workshop is partnering with Autism Speaks? Because of Guests who donate, they have been able to help a lot of kids over the years, so it’s cool that they are partnering with them again.

    Bye everyone!




  • Purple Day is Monday, March 26!

    March 21, 2012

    March 26 is a very special day. It’s Purple Day, a day founded by one of our 2011 Huggable Heroes to help raise awareness for epilepsy. Cassidy Megan McCarthy has epilepsy, which causes her to have seizures. Seizures can be scary for those who have them and the people around them, so Cassidy wanted to make sure more people knew what to do if they were around someone having a seizure. She started Purple Day so that more people can know about the disease and so that other people with epilepsy will know they are not alone.

    Purple and lavender are the official colors for epilepsy awareness, so that is why she called it Purple Day. Be sure to wear purple on Monday! Visit Cassidy’s website, www.purpleday.org, to learn more about this special day.
