I will admit it: I have never been inside Build A Bear to build my own stuffed animal. When I was given the chance to review an item from Build A Bear, I was pretty excited! My home is already full of stuffed animals so as I looked around the store, I kept Christmas in mind.
The Build A Bear Christmas Collection includes Santa, Jolly Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph and Clarice as well as several other winter creatures. With many adorable accessories, you can create the perfect Christmas gift. When I took a look further, I noticed that there was more than just this specific Christmas Collection that would be perfect to unwrap on Christmas morning.
The Camo Bear in U.S. Marine Corps Uniform is the perfect gift for my grandfather in-law. Wait..you thought I was going to pick out a stuffed animal for a child didn’t you? My grandfather in-law spent many years as a U.S. Marine and is now retired. Every time he recognizes a Marine when he is out, he takes a moment to salute them and thank them for their service. I have always had a hard time finding the right gift for him but when I saw this bear, I knew it was perfect for him this Christmas!
This 15″ Camo Bear features a U.S. Marine Corps Uniform, Black Rubber Boots, and an American Flag. While I am not very knowledgable about military attire, my husband said this is the “Dress Blues” of the Marine Corps. The quality of the bear and the accessories is great! Remember that I have not yet had an experience with Build A Bear, so I had no idea what to expect but I was quite pleased with what I received. I am confident that this is going to be one of my grandfather in-law’s favorite gifts this year!
Take a look around Build A Bear and you may be surprised what you will find. I thought that it was all just cutesy stuff for little girls to dress up their stuffed animals, but I was wrong. It is way more than that! Whether you have a marine to salute or a baby to shop for, Build A Bear has a great and unique gift for everyone!
