Gifts that Give Back:
There are special animals at Build-A-Bear you can make that donate to charity and promote awareness of the importance of giving back to your community, particularly during the holidays. For instance, when you purchase the new Turner Owl™, Build-A-Bear Workshop donates 50 cents to First Book to provide new books to children from low-income families and 50 cents to the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to support other literacy and education programs. This makes a great gift for teachers or any other cause-focused folks on the gift list. He is just one example, there are also furry friends that benefit domestic pet programs, children’s health and wellness and more.
Families can enjoy a classic oliday with the entire Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Collection. A make-your-own Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with light up nose is sure to brighten the holidays. Clarice®, the beary special friend of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, has a light up heart and the two “talk” to one another when you press their ears in sequence. Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster® completes the trio. All of these classic characters also are available ready-made in “Gifts to Go” packaging. All available while supplies last.
Other cool, classic holiday gifts that are sure to bring smiles include: Casually clad Frosty the Snowman™, Santa Bearemy®, dressed head to paw in a Santa style outfit, Fairisle Style Snow Hugs Teddy and Beary Merry Teddy 2010 (available beginning Nov. 29).
In addition, Build-A-Bear Workshop is excited to announce that after its success in 2009, “Holly & Hal Moose™: Our Uplifting Christmas Adventure,” will air for its second holiday season on ABC Family as part of its Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas programming Make-your-own Holly Moose™ and Hal Moose™ with light-up antlers also will be available beginning Nov. 19, while quantities last.
