If you’ve never heard of Build-a-Bear, then you probably do not have children who love stuffed animals. At Build-a-Bear, a child can pick out what kind of animal they’d like to “create” and take home with them. First, the animal must be stuffed which involves fluffy stuffing blowing around inside a machine until it’s sucked into the “skin” of the animal. At which point, the person who’s assisting asks if you want your animal to be firm or loose. After that, you get to brush off your animal to get it nice and “clean.” Then, you can pick out an outfit for it… anything from underwear and socks to briefcases and backpacks to flip flops and boots to hats and sunglasses. After you’ve dressed your animal, it’s time to name him/her and enter all the information into the special computers they have set up just for that purpose. Finally, you get a special box in which to carry your animal home. And, after you’ve paid for all of this, you’re free to go! 🙂
