I recently won a Care Bears Blogging Contest and the gift was a $30.00 Build-A-Bear Gift Card so that I could build my own Tenderheart Bear or Cheer Bear. The Care Bears are now being offered at Build-A-Bear Workshop Store Locations. I was super excited because before I even won the contest, I said I can’t wait to make my own Tenderheart Bear. I guess I put it out into the universe and it manifested to be true. Yay Me!
I visited my local Build-A-Bear Workshop at Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, North Carolina. The store was packed as expected because Build-A-Bear is AWESOME and I’ve never been in a location that wasn’t busy. I did manage to take small snippets of video but, it was a bit noisy so I took more photos than anything. I immediately went over to Tenderheart Bear & Cheer Bear and decided that Tenderheart won me over.
Mini Me was in tow with me and decided that he was going to build our Tenderheart Bear and that we could share him because you know… NOTHING is ever really MINE anymore! I agreed to let Mini Me stuff Tenderheart Bear, Make A Wish & Give him a heart full of LOVE! We even added a sound “The Care Bears Theme Song” to make him official! Mini Me went over to the fluff station and gave him a bath and brushed him perfectly.
It was time to name him and register him on the computer. I opted to keep Tenderheart Bear and not change his name to anything else. We put him on the Bear-O-Meter and then his birth certificate was printed. Instead of a box we got a reusable Build-A-Bear Backpack that Tenderheart Bear was put in and I loved it. I just threw him over my shoulder and could carry on as usual. If you’ve been following my blog or social media, you know I love convenience! #Win
I had a great experience at Build-A-Bear even though Mini Me kind of took over. That’s okay though… I totally built my own Girl Scouts Thin Mint Bear and she lives on the shelf by my desk in my home office. So, as a #ShareYourCare Ambassador I’d like to Pay It Forward and give another Care Bears Loving person the opportunity to win a $30.00 Gift Card and build your own Care Bear. So who would you build… Tenderheart Bear or Cheer Bear? Good Luck!
You can shop online or find a Workshop location near you. Visit the Build-A-Bear website. Don’t forget that you can watch Care Bears & Cousins Season 1 & 2 on Netflix right now! It really takes me back to my childhood and I’m glad I can share that with my children.
