Build A Bear Workshop®

Louise Little Bear went out to one of their factories to find out what it was all about...

She chose to visit the bear workshop in Covent Garden, London, but you can also find these shops in most big shopping malls... :-)

First you need to select the bear you want, from a wide selection of empty bear skins available at the entrance.

You do not have to choose a Teddy Bear, (why ever not?!!), there are lots of other build a bear animals to choose from, here we can see teddy dogs, teddy rabbits or even a teddy owl!


Choose Your Bear's Heart and Voice

The next stage is choosing a heart to place inside the bear.

And there are also little vice boxes, where you can record a special message which will be played when you squeeze the cute cuddly animal.

Stuff Your Bears

Once you are happy with your own message, and have a heart to love, you give them and the bear skin fur to the helpful shop assistant who will stuff the teddy bear with just the right amount of filling so that he can be not too hard nor too soft but somewhere in between.

I wonder what Goldilocks would choose? - I'm sure it would be "Just Right!" :-))

Choose Your Teddy Bear's Clothes

All Types of Bears Explored

Here at Bear Dictionary we like to explore all types of bears... some bears live in the wild like the polar bear, the brown bear and even the grizzly bear. Endangered Species of Bears need our protection if we are to continue to have wild species of bear. The more information on all types of bears can be shared the better. Educating our children about endangered bears, taking bear watching holidays to raise awareness and sponsoring endangered polar bears, panda bears and indeed all baby bears raised in zoos with an animal protection program
