There is a store called Stuffies here which is like a cheaper version of Build A Bear. They said that 30 dollars would probably be the most you would spend on making a bear there. I'm not sure how much build a bear cost but I'm sure its more cause they have licensed characters like my little pony and such. I was thinking of taking the kids there as a Christmas present. Do you think that it would be a good gift for them to get to make there own little friend?
