I also went to the Build-A-Bear website to learn more about the company. I had met Maxine Clark, the founder, at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and was impressed her emotional attachment to her customers and business. The first Build-A-Bear store opened in 1997, but from Maxine's enthusiasm, you would think it was last week. Can you guess how many furry friends have been made at Build-A-Bear Workshops since 1997? Seventy-five million!!! Wow, seventy-five million!!!
I was pulling for Blossom - the new bunny for Spring - and Rosie chose her! Go, Rosie! No arm-twisting from mommy either, I promise! Rosie calls her, "my baby build-a-bunny". Too cute! I think Rosie's in love - with Blossom and with me. I got lots of "I love you, mommy" hugs today.
If you love the furry friends, but don't have a Build-A-Bear near you, take a look at their website. You will be surprised at the prices - very affordable. Right now, there is $5 standard shipping on every order.
For Disney Princess fans, there are Princess Dresses for the furry friends! Even Princess Tiana.
