Special Valentine's Day Review and Giveaway-Build A Bear Be Mine Dalmatian

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we're always looking for something new to get the girls. They definitely don't need anymore candy as they are always wound up enough and flowers and kids just don't mix, little one likes to go up and smell flowers and try to eat them. This year, my girls got a very special and early Valentine's Day present courtesy of Build A Bear Workshop. I love Build A Bear Workshop and quite honestly have never gotten the chance to visit one, but I have heard so many great things about it and have checked out their website. My oldest daughter really wanted a Jonas Dog for Christmas, but around here, they were really hard to find. Unfortunately, I don't have a Build A Bear Workshop anywhere near me, the closest being about an hour and a half away. I was so fortunate to get the chance to work with Jayme from Build A Bear and she sent me two gift cards, one for each one of my girls, which in itself was generous enough. As I looked up the nearest Build A Bear Workshop and realized that we didn't have one where I thought we did, I emailed Jayme to see about using my cards and ordering online. She was so nice to ask me what pets I would like and she would order them from her end. That was a couple of days ago and today I received both of the cute and furry friends for my girls.

Little one received the Valentine Be Mine Dalmatian with the Dog Sound. I couldn't get her little friend out of the box fast enough before she was saying "puppy". She was eating, so once I cleaned her up, she grabbed her puppy and hasn't let it go since. This little guy is absolutely adorable in his heart sweater and red collar with a heart on it. I love that there's even cute little red foil hearts inside the heart on the collar. The black spots on the dalmatian are hearts too, so if you love hearts this is definitely for you! Little one's puppy also has a red heart around one of the eyes and a bone that says "Be Mine", it is absolutely adorable. She definitely loved it and I can see it will be her best buddy for a long time to come.

My oldest received the Soft Satin Be Mine Dalmatian. This is so cute in that this animal came with a beautiful red satin dress and red "Be Mine" bone. It lloks just like little one's dog with the exception of the outfit. Of course, the sound on this dog was the Jonas Brothers songs, three of them and when the oldest just got home from school, it didn't take her long to get it out of the box, which I forgot to mention looked liked little houses. I don't think she took her coat off before she went for it. Needless to say, I think both girls enjoyed their new furry puppies, because I don't see them anywhere and the girls are nowhere to be seen!
I love that you can customize your pets and friends with a variety of sounds including roar, giggle, monkey, I Love You, I Carly, Hannah Montana and more. This just makes it more personal and adds that special touch.

In 2007, the interactive experience was enhanced all the way to CyBEAR space with launch of BuildABearville.com, the company's virtual world that is stuffed with fun. I haven't had a chance to check out BuildABearville.com yet, but I'm sure it will be fun when my oldest and I get a chance to look it over.
