Meet the Holiday hugs teddy bear. I was hoping to have introduced this sweet little bear at least a week ago but our move across several state lines to Southwest Florida thru my blogging schedule completely out of whack and now here I am. With that said, are you looking for that "special something" for that special little one on your Christmas list this year? Having trouble deciding on a lasting gift that will bring years worth of memories without providing you the memories of trying to unleash it from a boxed nightmare? If so, how about trying Build-A-Bear workshop for your gift needs this year? My kids adore going to build-a-bear. And yes, even my son who is approaching 11 years old. There doesn't seem to be an age barrier at all whatsoever when it comes to that store. It's great for kids but also makes for fun date nights for that significant other on your arm. Build-a-bear provides lasting keepsakes that leave a loving impression. With the many varieties and choices that build-a-bear has to offer in regards to their animals as well as the accessories, you are really able to let those creative juices flow. Each gift is a personalized treat made from the heart.

Our family got the special blessing of receiving build-a-bears latest winter holiday hugs bear. The PR peeps from Build-a-bear sent us this adorable little guy and we were so thankful to be able to welcome him into our home with loving arms. He's gone from a Hoosier in the cold to a Floridian in the sunshine state within a matter of 2 weeks. HA HA! What a life! Needless to say, Kenidi fell in love with him. Brennen tried to confiscate him right off the bat from Kenidi. The winter holiday hugs design was well received here in our house. I especially liked him because he goes well with the holiday decor but isn't something that necessarily screams "holiday". We can keep him out as a decoration throughout the season. This collectible bear is individually numbered and includes a collectible pin. Plus, get a bonus of 7,500 Bear Bills to spend when you bring this cute teddy bear to life online for free in Build-A-Bearville. The price as shown for the bear is $20. Aside from the winter holiday hugs bear, build-a-bear is currently offering many seasonal products and even those popular faces like Alvin and the Chipmunks. If you'd like to view their options, click HERE.

Oh and before I go...did I mention that AGD is doing a give-a-way for one of the build-a-bear animals? Yeap, we sure are. Feel free to sign/comment on the blog below. We'll randomly choose a number by weeks end. If you were that number when you commented, you WIN! I'll announce the winner this weekend. Until then, get to commenting here on the blog in an effort to win and then go visit build-a-bear for all of your holiday gift giving needs.

xoxo, Angie

PS...Don't want to send the animal already made to your recipient? No problem. Just purchase a build-a-bear gift card for them and let your receiver do the constructing of their own new favorite friend. ;)

My girls had their first experience in a Build a Bear in October. They had a wonderful time and I loved watching them. It was a real treat as we only have one that is over an hour away. My oldest has been playing on their website for years. She has one that I ordered already made but being able to go make your own was the icing on the cake. I'd love to be able to get her another one. Thanks for a great giveaway!

My dear son screams as we go make a bear every time we pass the build-a-bear store in our mall...I have to distract to keep him from pulling a full fledged fit. He loves Build-a-Bear.

Hope all is well in FL. Hey, a GF of mine and her husband opened Wylds Cafe in Bonita should stop by and try it out.

If we come to Ft. Meyers, Captiva for spring break, is that close to you for a beach family picture?

Blogger Angie Seaman said...

Hi Heather. Yes, I have openings for the month of Spring Break. And yes, Ft. Myers and Captiva are near me. Ft. Myers is about 40 minutes away and Captiva Island is about an hour and a half away. I would love to photograph your family if you head this way. If you should make final plans, feel free to email me at to schedule a session during your stay here. Thank you so much for considering me. :)

Blessings, Angie

This bear is too cute! Build-a-bear always has something new up their sleeves. I'm sure it will be another great hit(; Love the bear though! It's very chic and could go for ALL ages!

We love build-a-bear in our house and have to go visit every time we go to the mall. My girls both got one on spring break vacation and LOVED it. They are great gifts. I took step by step pictures of the girls getting their bears.

Last year was my first experieince with Build-A-Bear. I had just filled the bear for Alicen and was walking around looking for the perfect outfit and I looked down and saw a wheelchair for the bears. I actually started crying, Alicen is in a wheel chair as well and it is hard to find stuff like that with other toys. I even wrote the company thanking them for including the differantly abled children as well. Even if I don't win the give a way I thank you for the memories of that day. Alicen's bear is sitting in it's wheel chair front and center in her bedroom.
