We were greeted with this display as we entered the store.
Since Evan had done it before, he was really excited to make another animal. Isabella didn't care which reindeer they went with(she just wanted to hold one), so I let Evan pick. He decided on Rudolph. They were so excited that his nose lit up and he talked. At $23, he was one of the more expensive animals, but having his nose light up made it worth it.
He got to help stuff it and give the heart a kiss to put in his back. For $6 we could have made him where he would sing the Rudolph song too. LOL-someone needs a haircut!
Evan's favorite part of making a new animal is giving them a bath. We had to pry him away from that big tub so that we could choose some clothes for him.
They finally decided on this cute hat and elf shoes. We named him Blinki, but Isabella just calls him "pretty" and Evan sticks to "reindeer". The animal does say "My name is Rudolph, Hi", so Evan is starting to call him that sometimes too.
As always, we had an absolute blast building our animal at Build-A-Bear. The quality is great, and the experience is so amazing. We could spend hours in there if given the chance. The kids have pushed him and a few of our other Build-A-Bear toys around in strollers and have even wanted to sleep with him.
If you've never taken your kids to Build-A-Bear, I would definitely recommend it. Visit Build-A-Bear to see the different animals that are available and to learn more.
