There are several steps involved in the Build-A-Bear experience.

  • First, you have to choose your stuffed animal — from a classic teddy bear to a Disney or Marvel character.
  • Once you’ve picked your Build-A-Bear, a store associate will help you stuff it and give it a heart.
  • Before your bear is stitched up, you can choose to customize it with pre-recorded sound effects or even scents. Some stores also offer voice-recording options so you can record your own special message.
  • You have the option to create a birth certificate for your stuffed animal, which will be printed in-store.
  • And, of course, there is an assortment of clothing and accessories for your bear to choose from.
