Making Your Own Stuffed Animal

Have you ever gotten a stuffed animal as a gift. You probably loved it. It may even be sitting on top of your computer or desk somewhere. Did you know you could make your very own. Yes, there is a place in Manhattan where you can go to a workshop and make your own stuffed animals.

Try it out sometime. Just take a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop at 565 Fifth Ave and either watch people create their own stuffed animal, or go in and make your own. It is a lot of fun.

You can all 212-871-7080 for more info or go to www.buildabear.com.

Oh, by the way, my favorite stuffed animal is a bear. What is your favorite? Anyone have any?

I thought the Build- A-Bear workshop was just for little kids...my own young nephews have no interest whatsoever in stuffed toys in this age of ipods and iphones. I doubt if taking them for a stuffed animal workshop would give me brownie points as an aunt? Maybe if I had young nieces but even they would probably want to head to stores like the hugely popular American Girl Place which is also located on Fifth Avenue ( http://www.americangirl.com/stores/location_ny.php).

I understand what you are saing uptowngirl. I did talk about American Girl Place in a post as a topic. Believe it or not, the workshop is usually crowded. So there are a number of parents bringing their kids to it each week. I went by it a few days ago and it was packed.
