We took our Grand Daughter to Build A Bear Saturday. She had a great time. She picked out a monkey, dressed it, and named it LaLa. What a great place to take a child.
I've been to the local build a bear several times, although not yet with the grand kids. My stuffed pet motorcycle companion, he rides on the luggage rack, is a Maltese biker dog, complete with leather jacket, pants and boots. I'll post a photo of him some time.
LaLa is cute and so is your granddaughter! I have spent countless hours in Build-A-Bear over the years (4 kids). Your granddaughter will enjoy it for years to come. It got to the point with my 4th child that we would try to distract her in the mall so she wouldn't see the store. lol. Be prepared for many LaLas in the future! :)
It is a great place but it is expensive.
