My daughters have certainly enjoyed their summer, but they definitely missed their school friends, too. Both of my girls were more than excited to get back to school and reunite with the classmates they hadn’t seen in quite some time. While we tried to have playdates as much as possible, we just didn’t seem to connect with every.single.friend. If you were ever in doubt that friends count to your little ones, the smiles on my girls’ faces the first day of school were enough to convince anyone.
Build-A-Bear Workshop knows just how much Friends Count in the lives of our children and have rolled out three new bears in the collection. Recently, my youngest daughter and I headed to the store to check them out! Just to show you how much friends count, normally my child would want to make the bear for herself. But this day, she decided to make a bear for a friend with an upcoming birthday. Quite a sacrifice for a four year old!
She had a hard time deciding between the Neon Star Bear (black with neon stars), the Friends Count Star Bear (purple) or the Friends Count Heart Bear (pink). After much debate, she decided on the pink bear and began the stuffing process after making a birthday wish on a gingham star. After making her bear, she picked out a cute “Happy Birthday” t-shirt for the bear and we were all set to go! My daughter had a great time making a birthday gift for her friend.
For less than $25, the Friends Count Heart Bear made a perfect birthday present for a friend and was hand carried to the party in it’s own little box. To stay on top of Build-A-Bear Workshop’s new collections and promotions, follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
