GIFT IDEA – BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP FROSTY THE SNOWMAN
Gene Audry’s Frosty the Snowman was big, and I was young. How I loved that musical character! Fifty-eight years later he lives on in the hearts and minds of childlike believers like me and maybe you.
Build a Bear Workshop has put out its own stuffed version of Frosty just in time for the 2009 holiday season. Opening the package of the Build-A-Bear Frosty The Snowman brought me back to 1950. I must say I just love him. Pipe, button nose, eyes of coal, pipe, broom stick, he is complete right down to his hat that lights up and makes those magic sounds. He looks just like the song describes except soft white fuzzy has replaced snow for obvious reasons.
Frosty is sure to be a must have this year. He is entertaining, interactive, and can be personalized. He lists at $30.00 before extras. Companion pieces (friend Karen, Professor Hinkle, rabbit Hocus Pocus, a train) are also available.
Guests who visit a Build-A-Bear Workshop store enter a recognizable and distinctive teddy bear themed environment consisting of eight stuffed animal-making stations: Choose Me, Hear Me, Stuff Me, Stitch Me, Fluff Me, Dress Me, Name Me and Take Me Home.
Build-A-Bear Workshop is the first company with both real-world stores and a virtual world experience so that Guests can continue the fun with their furry friends when they get home! At buildabearville.com, our online world stuffed with fun, Guests can bring their new furry friend to life online for free by using the code found on their birth certificate. They create a unique online character and play games to earn Bear Bills™, which can be used to purchase more clothes, furniture for their Cub Condo® houses and other items. Guests can also trade items with other citizens in the world. Membership to the site is free and does not expire. Beyond bringing their new friend to life online for free, Guests are rewarded for in-store purchases. When they make a clothing or accessory purchase in store or at www.buildabear.com, they receive a receipt code. The code gives them virtual store credit to use at the Bear Boutique in buildabearville.com, which is the only place to find exclusive virtual fashions and furniture items for their virtual furry friends. Stuff Fur Stuff® loyalty club members also receive virtual Bear Bills™ for their real world purchases.
One winner will receive a Frosty the Snowman from Build-A-Bear.
