About a year ago I had the opportunity to work with Build-A-Bear Workshop on a review of one of their Farmer's Market animals. My kids just adore their Build-A-Bear Workshop stuffed animals. My daughter sleeps with her brother's monkey every night. When she brings it down stairs in the morning it results in a massive fight. This is usually something along the lines of, "That's MINE!" Then she promptly shoves her younger brother to the floor, and he sits on the opposite end of the couch to regroup before going back in for round 2. *Ding Ding Ding* Let's get ready to rumbleeeeee!
On May 17th, Build-A-Bear Workshop just released two new "animals" to their Beary Limited Edition line. Let's welcome Sponge Bob & Patrick! There is also a 8.5 inch Sandy and a 6" Gary in a smaller pre-stuffed size. Know how I said my kids liked to fight over the monkey they have? Yeah, Patrick has elicited the exact same response. That's a good thing though, right? What brand doesn't want to hear that their toys are so popular they start a personal WWIII in the homes where their products reside.
To be 100% truthful, we're not a huge Sponge Bob family. Mostly because I think my kids are too young to watch it. However, I knew they'd love Patrick even if they weren't 100% sure who he is. They've watched the show a couple of times when there wasn't much else on and I needed mommy break. Plus, who just doesn't love the look of Patrick? He's so cute and funny!
Patrick, as previously mentioned, is an 18" Build-A-Bear that comes in a beautiful coral color. He's also super soft just like most of the other Build-A-Bear Workshop products we own. I think the combination of the bright vibrant colors and the texture of the material he's made out of is what really attracted my kids to him. Although Patrick doesn't fit into most of the Build-A-Bear clothing line, they did create a pirate outfit for him. If you have one of those kids who insists on dressing up their Build-A-Bear's it's nice to know that Patrick wasn't been left out. (Sponge Bob also has a pirate outfit you can purchase for him too.)
It's so hard not to fall in love with this new Beary Limited Edition line of characters! (We've also purchased Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony for my Daughter's Birthday. She is a huge MLP fan.) I'm always searching for a great deal on them, so make sure you check out Build-A-Bear Workshop on Facebook. Every once in awhile they release a great coupon! You can also find Build-A-Bear Workshop on Twitter, and Pinterest. If you have an iPhone you can download the Build-A-Bear Workshop app for FREE and get immediate updates.
