Weview Wednesday: Have yourself a very “beary” Christmas

Tis the season to be jolly and Build A Bear Workshop is spreading the Christmas joy with their great gift card special this season.

A newby to the phenomenon that is Build A Bear, I felt like a kid in a candy store…or maybe even a kid in Santa’s toy workshop, caught in awe by the amazing idea of being able to build my very own teddy bear.

Whether it’s a present for you, a little brother or sister, a loved one or even for a stranger, Build A Bear is definitely your one stop shop to find the cutest and cuddliest littly furry friends and even the cutest teddy outfits to keep them fashion forward.

Now you too can spread the furry love to as many people as possible, because when you spend R350 or more at your nearest Build A Bear store, receive a R100 gift card for only half the price at R50. Gift cards can be used for rewards and promotions by stores.

Last week, I visited the Sandton City branch of the store, where I had my very first Build a Bear experience.

With my R100 gift card, I was able to purchase, stuff, wash and type out a birth certificate for my new furry friend and more than just walking away with a new teddy, you walk away with a whole new experience.

Coming in different colours and designs, the Build A Bear Workshop gift cards are playful, easy and fitting to the child like theme portrayed in the shop. The staff are also very friendly, offering their assistance wherever possible.


Walking through the Build A Bear store, I could easily spend R350, or even more on all the cute goodies that they have in store and then still shop some more as I reap the benefits of a 50% discount on a gift card as a reward.

WIth my R100 gift card, I chose to build my own teddy bear named “Cuddles”, which would then be donated to kids at a local charity in Yeoville, Johannesburg, The Nazareth House.

First I had a look around at all the different furry friends and made my pick of which one I wanted stuffed. After choosing the perfect white bear, I could then take it through the process of watching it being stuffed, even giving it sound effects, washing it and then naming it and issuing its very own birth certificate.


And Voila! in about 10 minutes, I got to walk out the store with my new fluffy companion, ready to hand him over to a new home and a new owner. Spread the Christmas cheer in a fluffy new way this year at Build A Bear and get discounted too!
