Update: Due to server failure between March 6-8th, many of the comment/entries and the winner’s info were lost. There were 93 entries and the winner was notified.

We were sent out on a mission:

Stuff a Build-A-Bear Valentine’s friend. Jack chose The Love Bug.

We were armed with a $25 gift card from Build-A-Bear to complete our mission.

{but since we have two boys and I’m also on the Build-A-Bear snail mail list it just so happened that I had a $5 off coupon at my disposal. So boy #2 got to choose a friend to stuff too: the owl}

Canton, Ohio Build-A-Bear Workshop Review

They met the official Build-A-Bear stuffer-lady at the stuffing machine.

Made their wishes and  kissed their little stuffed hearts that the stuffer-lady put inside the bug and owl.

Then they primped their friends at the Build-A-Bear “salon”.

{Thats what I call it anyways ;)}

And here they are with their new Build-A-Bear friends!

Which includes one of the  NEW for Valentine’s Day friends:

The Love Bug (with removable wings!)

Mission Accomplished!

And one of you will win a $25 Build-A-Bear gift card to make your own furry friend!

To enter: Just leave a comment telling me which of the two new Valentine’s friends you like best: The Love Bug or the Valentine’s Bear {that does not mean you have to buy it if you win the card 😉 }

Want extra entries? You get one separate extra entry for doing each of the following…do one or all, its up to you, but they ONLY count if you leave a separate comment telling me you’ve completed that request- (after completing it of course!).

Of course, if you already are doing any or all of the above then leave me a separate comment for each thing so you can get up to 5 extra entries!  So if you do everything you will have 6 entries !

*Disclosure: I am a Build-A-Bear “mom ambassabear” and received a $25 gift card to make a Valentine’s friend to complete this mission.

**My  “mommy” 2cents: Build-A-Bear has a variety of cute, furry and wonderful friends your child can stuff at a variety of prices as low as $10! For the 2 critters my boys’ picked out our total would have been about $35, however, I had a $5 off coupon (be sure to sign up for their snail mail list) to use in addition to the $25 gift card for the mission. We paid about $5 out of pocket for this adventure!


Incidentally- this cute Love Bug matches quite well with his ladybug pet pillow.
