BABWEasterBuild-A-Bear Workshop Inc. launched several new furry friends in its stores and online for the Easter season, and more additions will roll out later this month and in April. Guests can also personalize voice messages to any furry friend to create a Build-A-Sound recordable sound chip, available in stores and online.

Build-A-Bear Workshop introduced five Make-Your-Own Easter furry friends: Spring Splash Bunny, Cocoa Créme Bunny, Spotty Dotty Bunny, Vanilla Swirls Lamb, and Cheerful Chirps Chick. Hide & Go Beep sound chips can be added for kids to play hide and seek.

Promise Pets are now available, including a Shih Tzu, Tuxedo Cat, Copper Golden Retriever, and Lop Bunny. Kids can host an elegant tea party with the Make-Your-Own Time for Tea Bear. The bear features satin pink paws and a flower print on white fur, and kids can complete the party look with a sequin dress and floppy hat accessory. In addition, Starlight Glimmer has joined the My Little Pony collection.

Debuting later this month, Build-A-Bear Workshop will introduce the Panda Cub and Tiger Cub. The Grey Arabian Horse will join the Horse & Hearts Riding club.

In April, Cakes ‘n Treats Bear, part of the baking collection, will roll out, featuring bright blue fur, pink ears, and paw pads that resemble a cupcake. The Pastel Swirl Kitty will also be introduced, featuring soft purple, pink, and blue fur.

This spring, Build-A-Bear Workshop and Build-A-Bear Foundation have partnered with Petfinder Foundation to help teach children about the kindness, compassion, and responsibility associated with owning a pet. From April 1 to May 31, Build-A-Bear Workshop guests can make a donation in stores or online to support Petfinder Foundation’s local outreach programs that educate children about pet ownership. All money collected will go directly to the national grant program administered by Petfinder Foundation.
