On June 1st, Build-A-Bear Workshop held a grand opening, of it’s first store in Kuwait, at the Avenues Mall, Level 1, with a beautiful opening ceremony and entertainment, attended by mall management, media, senior representatives from Build-A-Bear Workshop Gulf States and VIP guests and customers. The presence of mascot Bearemy was a delight to the children, who made further appearances on June 2nd to 4th at the store.

I visited the Build-A-Bear Workshop on Saturday evening and was quite intrigued and impressed by what they have to offer. Build-A-Bear Workshop would be of great interest for everyone, regardless of age, as people have a special fondness for stuffed animals. Build-A-Bear Workshop offers a unique concept of ‘make your own teddy bears’ and other plush animals. Guests enter a distinctive teddy bear themed environment consisting of eight ‘make your own stuffed animal stations’ which are ‘Choose Me, Hear Me, Stuff Me, Stitch Me, Fluff Me, Dress Me, Name Me and Take Me Home’. Doesn’t that sound adorable offering a personalized experience of creativity? Well, that’s not all. There are a variety of furry friends to choose from to make; stuff their new friend, give it a satin heart filled with wishes – a Build-A-Bear Workshop trademark and make a personalized birth certificate! Guests can further personalize the stuffed animal by recording their own message, add a heart beat to place inside and choose to clothe it from a wide selection of unique fashions and accessories. Store Associates will help you through every phase. Each bear goes into one the Build-A-Bear Workshop unique Cub Condo case and also guests will gain exclusive access to Bearville.com.

Guests can also chose to buy from the wonderful wide range of existing stuffed animals at Build-A-Bear workshop as well.  A visit to Build-A-Bear Workshop will certainly give adults and children a unique experience as it offers joy of creativity and a  wonderful interactive experience to make your own stuffed animal. Build-A-Bear Workshop also hosts parties for special occasions which you can enquire about.
