As the retailer’s name suggests, Build-A-Bear is a place where people can come to create a unique bear or stuffed animal. Customization is the name of the game. The customer starts by selecting the type of stuffed animal that they’d like to create. From there, they can customize everything from the stuffed animal’s clothing and accessories to different scent and sound features.
Because not everyone will want to build a new plush friend from scratch, Build-A-Bear offers many stuffed animals that are ready to purchase. Shoppers can also find fun outfits and accessories to buy so that a stuffed animal can look like a Disney princess or a Pokémon character.
Build-A-Bear is well-known for offering special collections that feature characters from popular movies, TV shows and even video games. This allows shoppers to buy and give a unique gift, no matter what the recipient is into.
