About Build-a-Bear Workshop
Build-a-Bear allows children to make a teddy bear using their unique imagination and makes it a fun experience with lasting memories. Children can build their own bear, bunny, dog or other stuffed animal including stuffing, clothing and accessories like glasses and shoes. There’s nothing more special than making a unique toy and taking it home to love and cherish for years to come.
The Build-a-Bear Workshop story started back in 1997 with its first store opening in the Saint Louis Galleria in St. Louis, Missouri. From that small beginning they now operate from over 400 stores worldwide with over 70 million bears spreading joy to their young owners. The idea was born from a simple shopping trip. Maxine Clark the Chief Executive was out shopping with a friend and found they couldn’t find a teddy bear to buy, there just wasn’t a design or style they actually liked. This inspired an idea to allow consumers to design and make their own bear from the beginning using a mix and match of different outfits, from there the rest is history.
