  • Build-A-Bear Workshop $25 Gift Card Giveaway

    The folks over at Build-A-Bear Workshop sent their Hal and Holly Moose set (minus gift card) over for Alex and Tyler to try out. My boys being stereotypical boys, they played with Hal and Holly for a few minutes, and then turned their attention to the fabulous house-shaped boxes that Hal and Holly came in. (The boxes have cut out multi-paned windows and doors that open. Tyler fills his box with stuff, then takes it to another room, dumps it out, then fills it again. And then repeats.) Hal and Holly still get some love from the boys, though.

    And I can’t get over how soft and touchable the moose (mooses?) are. If you know a child who loves soft plush, check out Hal and Holly and their brethren. Of course, you’re not limited to moose – they have a variety of animals to choose from, and just about any variety of bear you can think of. Although I might skip the clothes, since the clothes aren’t nearly as touchable as the fur. (Is it wrong to gift a naked moose to a child?)

    Win it!

    Build-A-Bear Workshop wants you to get in on the fun, so they sent me a $25 gift card to give away to one lucky winner. To enter, head over to Build-A-Bear Workshop, then come back and fill out the form below, telling me your favorite thing you saw over there. (If you’re reading this in a feed aggregator or email, you’ll need to click through to the post to reach the form.)

    For an additional entry, subscribe to CFO via RSS or email and fill out the form again to let me know you’ve done so.

    For a third entry, spread the word about this contest – tell a friend or write about it on your own blog. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again.

    You can enter up to three times (one for each type), and you must submit separate entries for each type. I’ll select the winner using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. The winner will have 48 hours to send me their address, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected.

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. PST on Tuesday, November 25. Sorry, this giveaway is open only to residents of the U.S. and Canada.

    Good luck!

    1. Love the asthma and allergy friendly velvet bear. It is great for infants, due to the embroidered eyes. We made a prayer bear for my son using their build a sound recorder.

    2. Love the themed bears. Christmas, get well & birthday ROCK!

      I would love to have those cute moose bears.

    4. My daughter just received the small ready made Holly Moose last week from a friend. It’s so adorable and unbelievably soft..her clothes are too cute!

      Love it!

    5. I visited the Build-A-Bear store this morning myself but yesterday we had to stop by the store to pick up my daughters prize (right now they have several Bears that are frugally priced at $l0.00…for surgery…it is her reward for having to put up with a life of pokes, medical surgeries, procedures. The Build-A-Bear store knows her by name and they know when they see her it is one of those Special Days. The Build-Bear Store Site is one of my daughters favorite places to dream to forget the pain.

    6. My youngest son would love the reindeers!

    7. I would have to say the theme bears are my favorite…
