I’m almost afraid to tell her that Build-A-Bear Workshop, interactive retailer of customized stuffed animals, is celebrating the launch of its Disney Princess bear and costume collection with a Princess Weekend. Mainly because I’m not sure my ears can handle the squee decibel level.
On Friday, Jan. 11 through Sunday, Jan. 13 in stores throughout North America, guests will be given the royal treatment with a crowning and knighting ceremony, plus a chance to decorate paper crowns with jeweled stickers.
After that, kiddos can make their own Disney Princess bear ($23) that comes with a sparkling crown and features Disney Princesses on her paws – of course.
Already have a Build-A-Bear stuffie at home? Transform any furry friend into a favorite princess with new costumes ($16 each):
• Belle (available in select stores)
• Sleeping Beauty
• Snow White (available in select stores)
“At Build-A-Bear Workshop, we want everyone to feel as special as a princess with a fairy godmother,” said Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop founder and chief executive bear in a recent press release. “With this new Disney Princess bear and collection of beautiful princess costumes, we invite Guests to embark on a magical journey filled with imagination and adventure!”
Let’s see how fast I can cover my ears once my daughter sees the insanely adorable group shot.
Tip: If you’re planning a Disney vacation soon, this would make a seriously cute souvenir. Disneyland has a Build-A-Bear Workshop in its Downtown Disney District, while the location closest to Walt Disney World is housed within the Orlando International Airport.
