Build-a-Bear Workshop Experience

Build-a-Bear Workshop Experience

OUR BUILD-A-BEAR EXPERIENCE

🙌🏻

After a few months of waiting..Princess Z finally got a chance this EID to experience and build her own bear at the Build-A Bear Workshop

This workshop is every kids favorite but for those of you who don’t know :

Build-A-Bear Workshop is the only company in the world that offers an interactive, make-your-own stuffed cuddly toy family experience! 

When you walk into a Build-A-Bear Workshop store you get to create your own cuddly toy, by choosing it, stuffing it, adding a sound and giving it a heart full of wishes. You can dress and accessorize it before making a personalized birth certificate and taking it home in its own special Cub Condo carrying case!

There are many Build-a-Bear Workshop stores here in Dubai but we decided to go to the DFC (Dubai Festival City) branch which we thought had the most options than anywhere else.

As we walked into the store I could see my little princess getting over excited 😆 with everything finding it hard to choose….but after a while of searching and deciding… Princess Z finally decided to go with the FROZEN (ELSA) TEDDY 👇🏻

The Frozen Collection

Next step was to chose her VOICE/SOUND…obviously as it was Elsa we went with the Let it go song…🎶

The STUFFING came in next….before sealing the Elsa teddy completely.We gave it a HEART ❤ (sealed with kisses and love) as well as added a BUBBLE GUM Smell (rubbing it against her and stuffing it in)….

Thus…The Elsa bear 🐻 was born ☺

Sealing In The Heart ❤

Next was Princess Z’s favorite part WASHING & DRESSING/ACCESSORIZING her Elsa Bear up..

Once everything was done we headed to one of the computers filled in the information… personalized and collected our Teddy’s BIRTH CERTIFICATE and headed to the counter for payment.

Total cost of our ❄🐻: 338 AED

*Note:everything is charged separately (accessories etc..) and prices may vary on selection 🙂

So happy to welcome a new member in our family…🐻This surely was a great experience for Princess Z and not only did she throughly enjoy it! We did too 🙂… 

I highly recommend going to the the DFC (Dubai Festival City) branch of Build-A-Bear Workshop…excellent service,super friendly and helpful staff… totally awesome 👏🏻 🙌🏻

*Great for kids over 4+ as they will be old enough to understand and enjoy this amazing experience.

1.So we started of by filling in some soil in the garden bowl..Filling it up nearly to the top and firming it down to make a smooth and stable surface.

Fairy Garden
Step 1

2.Once we were done! We assembled the fairy cottage and placed it on to the soil in the center close to the rim of the bowl,pressing it in,a bit.

Our Cat Was Enjoying This As Well 🙈

3.Next with the help of a teaspoon we made a small hole in the soil on the left side of the bowl.Placing the shell in the hollow making sure the sides were leveled with the soil.

4.Then using the multi- colored gravel we created a path from the cottage to the opposite side of the bowl.

5.In the spare area of the garden we placed the washing line poles(cutting the cord to the length required).and hanged the pink blanket using the pegs.

Already Lookign Good …Isn’t It!

6.Next,we evenly scattered the grass seeds over the bare areas of the soil.(Sprinkling water over the seeds to make them a bit damp)

Almost Done

7.Now once everything was done it was time to add the decorations,flowers and mushroom and we did..placing them randomly around empty spaces.

Looks Wonderful ❤️

8.Last but not the least we poured a little water in the shell to make a fairy pond and Finally we sprinkled a bit of fairy dust(stars) all over…adding a bit of fairy magic.

And voila…it’s done … the only thing we need to do now is wait and watch the grass grow.

Our Little Fairy Garden

*you can add in a few decorations of your own if you like…like pebbles,small plants,sea shells,shiny objects and so much more..
