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 ☺

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.

The Great Indoor Picnic Brunch @ Bazxar

The Great Indoor Picnic Brunch @ Bazxar

THE GREAT INDOOR PICNIC BRUNCH

It was an honor to be invited and spend my Saturday at the launch of The Great Indoor Picnic Brunch @ Bazxar with Princess Z.Located in the heart of DIFC this was one place I was looking forward too.

The Indoor Family Picnic

Ambience

As being a mother the most important aspect I look out for in a restaurant is kids- friendliness.A place where the kids can enjoy and keep them selves busy while we eat and chat.This new picnic brunch by bazxar (which takes place every Saturday)fits in perfectly.Casually dressed in our attire as we walked in Princess Z and I were fascinated with the setup around.Excellently decorated from grassy and greenery effect to the wooden benches and tables covered with red checked cloth to balloons tied up to the table,was very cute (definitely giving you a feeling of an outdoor picnic party).Not only this the buffet table was very well represented with non-veg and veg dishes and snacks.

The Buffet

Food

I know how choosy kids become If they don’t get their favorite thing to eat,refusing to try anything new.The good thing about the buffet here was that there is something for everyone.From kids favorite items like pizza,fish and chips,pasta, macaroni salad to cheese and crackers,sandwiches, sweet treats ( banana loaf,cookies,biscuits) and much more.For burger lovers there is a ‘make your own burger’ station,where beef patties are placed on a bun and topped with dressings as desired.For the drinks the regular hot and cold beverages are served,including alcohol.Not only this if your in a mood for a milkshake then ‘the Milkshake station’ is just the place for you where you can build your own and enjoy.

Activities

Princess Z was super duper excited to try out all the activities here.The first activity Princess Z started off with was Cupcake Decorating. Here she was provided with a vanilla cupcake with pink frosting and all the toppings she could ever think off from gummy bears to m&ms, rainbow sprinkles,peanut butter and many more to decorate.It didn’t take her much time to finish and gobble it 😉.Next was the Milkshake Making stop.Princess Z was full (didn’t have much space in her tummy after the heavy cupcake) so she skipped and jumped to Face Painting.As we had other plans for the evening she decided to get a painting design on her hand instead.With a henna design on one hand and a balloon in the other Princess Z was happy and satisfied enough to go home. 😁.Not only this there is also a small area where the kids can enjoy a movie 🎥 on beanbags with a bucket of popcorn 🍿.These activities are surely great enough to keep a child busy and entertained.

The Great Indoor Picnic @Bazxar is held every Saturday from 12-4pm.
