Spring fashions are exploding into Build-A-Bear stores. For the last two months, Build-A-Bear has been steadily releasing their spring collection, complete with countless new outfits. Build-A-Bear has been following the latest trends: Camo stuff for Hello Kitty, sparkles added to every outfit, an adorable Tye Dye Bubble Outfit has been released, denim wear is increasing in popularity, and your sweet teddy bears can wear a skull-and-crossbones t-shirt. (EW!) I think all those outfits are cute (except for the last one.) Their theme with their new dresses is bright pink: Fushia Bubble Dress and Floral Belted Dress are vibrant. The softer Gingham print is more desirable, in my opinon. (so it's good they've released it!) Sparkles are SO in. Build-A-Bear seems to have more shimmery, sparkley things than last year. And for the Limited Too girls, Build-A-Bear Limited Too merchandise has gone to skirts. A final note to notice is the increase of Hannah Montana stuff for bears - but I suppose that will only last as long as the show.
So, this year we may expect the slow death of the Hello Kitty wear, the dawn of brighter pinks and tons of sequins, and more cute bear skirts!
See you on Saturday for my weekend post.

Plan your trip to Build-A-Bear workshop to coincide with this year's "Leap Day," (February 29 to March 3rd) and you can have a cute T-shirt for yourself - with, of course, a purchase of $15 or more. I'm just glad Build-A-Bear is having one of their "givaways," and that they're finally giving your virtual Build-A-Bearville bears clothes other than the default outfit. Yes, when you recieve a Leap Day t-shirt, you also can bring a matching t-shirt into Build-A-Bearville for your furry friends. But there's more - your virtual character in Build-A-Bearville will also recieve a t-shirt. Triple win! This may be one of the best givaways in a long time.
Speaking of Leap Day, Build-A-Bear is creating special gift certificates to commemerate this rare holiday. Every furry friend made on February 29, 2008, will recieve a "Leap Day" birth certificate. And unless you end up spending $14 or less (which is rare at a Build-A-Bear store), you'll get the free t-shirt too.
One more note before I go - stop by Beremy any time between or on February 29th and March 3rd (in Build-A-Bearville) to get a free "Leap" move!
My next post will be this Thursday - toodles for now!

Build-A-Bearville is celebrating Valentine's Day all this week with the Valentine's Day Dance! Head right down to the Pawforming Art Center and join in the fun! If you'd like to show off your new "moves," head down to the Build-A-Bear town center and click on Beremy to recieve a Valentine's Day dance disco move.
Notice all the Valentine's day decorations!!!! Build-A-Bearville is full of hearts, balloons, and banners.
Build-A-Bearville has another change: this one shows Build-A-Bear's attention to every detail. The newest Bear Associate at the virtual Build-A-Bear Workshop is Build-A-Bear's up-and-coming Limited Edition Bunny, to arrive in real stores February 15. Watch in future posts for updates on this!
In stores, Build-A-Bear has released their St. Patrick's Day bear: Lucky fur You Teddy arrived February 8th. Creamy, slightly off-white fur sprinkled with three-leaf clovers makes this teddy a cute addition to the Build-A-Bear family. Released with it is Build-A-Bear's annual supply of St. Patrick's Day outfits, from an Irish Dancer dress to green bear jammies. Also included is the ever-popular Leprechaun outfit, this year being in tones of black and green.
Also, Build-A-Bear is celebrating the Chinese New Year with their slim but cute Year of the Mouse. (yes, it is really named that) A sandy-colored mouse with a few wiskers is just the thing to commemorate the year of the Rat....or so Build-A-Bear figures. I don't suppose too many mothers will be too happy about a little bear that looks a bit like a rat.
That's all for now! Until next week,

Stuff fur Stuff members, be sure to enter the Stuff fur Stuff Club Appreciation Days sweepstakes! The prize is a 32" tall Hearts-fur-You puppy. No purchase necessary, but a purchase made on your Stuff fur Stuff card before February 4th will automatically enter you into the contest.
And lastly, for every $1 you spend on Build-A-Bear products in-store or online you will recieve $100 in Bear Bucks on Build-a-Bearville! So spend on - I have a feeling Bear Buck inflation may become a problem sometime soon.
