The Good Gift Guide – the Build A Bear Christmas Range.

The Good Gift Guide – the Build A Bear Christmas Range.

A couple of weeks ago Grace and I went to London for the Moshi Monster Movie preview and afterwards we had some time to spare to spend in London. So, we decided to pay a visit to Hamleys and, in particular, the Build A Bear Workshop section where they were showcasing their amazing Christmas range.

Grace adores Build A Bear. Back in January she had a Build A Bear Workshop party where her bear, Heart, was born and is now one of her absolute favourite toys who seems to go everywhere with her. She loved it so much she is having another Build A Bear party in Exeter for her next birthday.

When we visited Hamleys, Grace wanted to buy all of the items they had – but in the end she agreed to spend her pocket money on a beautiful sparkly red sequinned dress and sparkly red shoes. I agreed to give her the red roller skates for Christmas. Grace also has a matching red sequinned dress and shoes so her and Heart will look wonderful on Christmas Eve together.


I love Build A Bear almost as much as Grace and you can imagine how thrilled I was when we were asked to review their Christmas range. So they send us the wonderful Snowy Sparkles who is blue and decorated with shiny silver snowflakes – she is gorgeous.

Along with the bunny, came two outfits. The first one, which she was wearing, was a purple skating outfit complete with skating boots. Grace already has one of these outfits for Heart in blue so Heart and Sparkles will compliment each other beautifully. The other outfit was a stunning silver sequin and blue net dress complete with silver shoes – she will look all set for a wonderful party event.

I haven’t given Sparkles to her yet but I can’t wait to see her face when she opens her next week complete with the wonderful note that came with her which reads: “Dear Grace, Your lovely Mummy told me how much you and Heart loved our Christmas range, so please accept this early birthday present from us – an outfit from our Christmas line. I have also included a new friend – Snowy Sparkles bunny. I hope you and Heart will make her feel very welcome. x’  There is no doubt in my mind that Grace and Heart will do exactly that. Oh to be a child again!

I thoroughly recommend Build A Bear for anyone young, or young at heart 🙂

You can rest assured that I will take a photo of Grace when she opens her new friend – and share it with you 🙂
