Every child has a favourite teddy bear and I remember my cuddly friends from my own childhood. Over the last few years the children have had all manner of soft toys and their favourites have changed with the seasons. But without fail they always have their current best teddy friend by their side at bedtime.
This Friday Build-A-Bear Workshop is celebrating National Teddy Bear Day with a very specialone day only event, making sure that every child can have that special cuddly friend in their life.
On Friday you can visit your local Build-A-Bear Workshop store where they will be selling commemorative bears for just £5 as well as hosting a donation match for three charitable organisations that will help children across the globe.
This is the very first time Build-A-Bear Workshop has created a commemorative bear for National Teddy Bear Day – but children will also have the chance to purchase two other £5 bears too, Lil’ Vanilla Bean Cub and Lil’ Hazelnut Cub. Build-A-Bear Workshop is such an incredible place for children to visit and this offer makes building a bear accessible for everyone – and a great way to celebrate such a lovely day of the year! It’s worth mentioning that everyone is able to purchase up to five of the £5 bears each – they would make great Christmas gifts too.
In the spirit of the brand’s mission to add a little more heart to life, for every £5 bear purchased on National Teddy Bear Day, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate a furry friend to one of three charitable organisations – one in the US, one in Canada and Childhood First, along with other children’s charities, in the UK.
Build-A-Bear Workshop will celebrate it’s 20th birthday in 2017, and 2016’s National Teddy Bear Day marks the kick-off of more than a year of celebrations. Make sure you visit BuildABear.com/TeddyBearDay to learn more about the in-store events and to find your nearest Build-A-Bear Workshop store take a look at their store locator here.
