Updated, High Tech Build-A-Bear Workshop at Montgomery Mall
One reader will win a $25 gift card for your child to create his or her own cuddly pal!
Last year my children and I had the chance to try out one of the first new high tech Build-A-Bear locations at Westfield Annapolis. I wrote about how the expanded technology made the Build-A-Bear experience more joyful, exciting and longer for the kids when they created their Build-A-Bear friends.
The Westfield Montgomery location in Bethesda just joined the updated, high tech Build-A-Bear family. Merging the well-loved hands-on bear-making process with innovative technology, the new process is designed especially for our technology-loving kids. There are large touch-screens throughout the store for children to play games and further customize the creation of their snuggly friends.
The new set-up lengthens and expands the bear/animal creation and adoption process, making for more fun experiences for the kids. I believe a longer, updated, more game-filled experience also adds more value for us parents, as the animals remain the same price but the entertainment when within the Build-A-Bear store is more interactive and unique.
Also, at each station in the Build-A-Bear process staff members will be referring to your child by his or her name. My children felt special as staff persons greeted them throughout the process when they experienced the high tech store last year.
Here’s a virtual tour video so you can see how the process at Build-A-Bear at Westfield Montgomery has changed:
My kids recently received from Build-A-Bear the new Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Clarice animals, complete with outfits, accessories, glowing noses and hearts! These classic characters from our favorite holiday special have already got my kids excited for the winter holidays. Creating these loveable Christmas characters would be a very fun “project” to accomplish with a grandparent who is in town for Thanksgiving, don’t you think? Check out the other new holiday pals you can create if you win the giveaway!
