Build-A-Bear Workshop seasonal pop-up shops opened in March at select AMC Theatres locations in Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and 10 additional shops opened this month in Texas, Kansas, and Missouri. Kids can make movie-inspired plush and customize it with an assortment of clothing, accessories, scents, and sounds. Pre-stuffed plush are also available.

The Carnival Cruise Line Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea experience launched last summer and is now available on all 25 Carnival ships. Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea lets kids create and customize with a variety of outfits and accessories, including vacation-wear. The selection also includes a signature Carnival bear, Carnival T-shirts and backpacks, and an exclusive Make-Your-Own Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat.

Build-A-Bear Workshop and Beaches Resorts also partnered for shop experiences at resort locations. The first Build-A-Bear Workshop Beaches experience opened last December at Beaches Turks and Caicos, and two additional locations will open this month at Beaches Negril and Beaches Ocho Rios in Jamaica.

On Memorial Day, the Build-A-Bear Workshop returned to Gaylord Hotels, including Gaylord Palms Resort, Gaylord Opryland Resort, and Gaylord Texan Resort. The shop will be available Labor Day as part of the resorts’ annual SummerFest event. Signature Teddy bears, licensed characters, and more are available and customizable.
