Build-A-Bear Experience - Please Wait Here Sign

Guests can expect added safety steps when you come into the Workshop to make a memory with us! Along with enhancing our cleaning and sanitation measures and providing associates with masks, here’s what you can expect:

  • Your Workshop’s hours have changed, see below to see the new hours.
  • Each Workshop has a reduced capacity to allow social distancing inside the Workshop for your safety.
  • Please wait at the store front for a Bear Builder to assist you upon arrival.
  • Bear Builders will be wearing Build-A-Bear face masks and we encourage our guests to wear masks as well.
  • You can help us practice social distancing by following the bear paws and arrows on the floor.

  • Once you’ve followed the paws to choose your furry friend, head to the new Hug Station to bring it to life with a Bear Builder at the Stuffer!
  • Enjoy a personalized Heart Ceremony with all the love – no touching your body or face!
  • Choose an outfit and accessories for your furry friend while following the bear paws.
  • Our Hear Me and Name Me stations now have hand sanitiser placed nearby.
  • Follow the bear paws and arrows to Take Me Home; we’ve adjusted the location of our pin pads to follow social distancing guidelines.
