We recently took a trip to build a bear factory so we could build Elijah a bear for his birthday. Build a bear do a promotion where if you sign up to their bonus club you can build your very own bear on your child’s birthday and you pay their age. The bear cost us 2 pounds as Elijah is turning two. The deal is valid for their whole birthday month. It includes just the birthday bear and you pay anything extra you want like clothes, scents, sounds and more.
When we went in Elijah was so excited he ran and fell over running to the shop when we said we where going in. He ran straight in looking around and pointing very excited jumping up and down. We had a lovely staff member who was very helpful and cheerful. We told her we where building a bear for Elijah for his birthday on the 15th and she helped us make the bear. Elijah wanted a sound which we paid extra for and was dancing and cheering to the music and chose the lion king song i just cant wait to be king to be his sound. Elijah is obsessed with the lion king so it was a clear one of the songs would be his choice. He helped push the peddle to fill the bear and put a wish in his teddy. We chose a smell and he chose a cake because you know it’s for his birthday and who doesn’t love the smell of cake. We then chose a hat and top and as we have some clothes at home already we decided to choose birthday items ready for his birthday. You can also make a birth certificate for the bear. We went over to the bath for teddies and he washed his teddy and brushed his hair. Elijah chose a box instead of a bag so he got to take home a little home for his bear and held on to him very tightly looking after him.
Elijah really enjoyed his experience and is at a age he can really enjoy the store and making of the bear now. Its a great activity to do for a birthday and also just a day out. Elijah has took his little bear to bed and keeps cuddling him. Its also affordable as its from when a child is one they pay their age.
