Back in March, I attended the Disney Social Media Moms conference in Orlando. I heard Maxine Clark, CEO of Build-A-Bear speak. I have to admit, I didn’t know much about the company. For starters, I thought it was only for girls – which it’s most definitely not.
But the moment Maxine Clark started speaking, I was completely engaged. I was so intrigued and knew I’d want to take my boys to a local Build-A-Bear when we got home.
We finally went yesterday and had so much fun. The people who worked at the store were enthusiastic and my boys had a blast.
Both of my boys are already asking when they can go back — and if they can have their birthday parties there. And I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but the entire process was so fun, it almost made me want to make a bear. I admitted this to the woman helping us and she said they recently had a 21 year old birthday party/group of girls there before they hit the town. Corny or fun? You decide.
