It’s been awhile now since I last thought of Valentine’s Day as a romantic celebration. These days it’s more about celebrating those all around me that I love – especially my daughters. Of course I don’t want to be filling Keira up with sweets and I’d rather give her something she will love herself for years to come.
One of Keira’s favourite things in the whole world are her Bears – or as is known in Keira talk “Bay-ah”. Of course I was happy to receive a pair of bears from Build-A-Bear Workshop for the two girls just in time for Valentine’s Day. My only problem now is going to be getting Keira to chose which bear Ava can have, that is if I can ever get her to give one up!
Build-A-Bear Workshop has a wide variety of adorable plush animals – there are more than 30 stuffed animals to choose from such as bears, bunnies, dogs, cats, monkeys and more. Thanks to the assortment of cute fashions, accessories, sounds and embroidery options your new furry friend can be completely personalized to create the perfect gift for your special Valentine.
The two we received were Big Hearts Bear and Big Top Bearemy. Big Hearts Bear is just fabulous looking in her red dress and sparkly shoes, she is definitely ready for date night! My favourite of the pair though is Big Top Bearamy. He is just adorable looking in his jeans and high-top canvas shoes.
So far Keira seems to love them both pretty equally and loves running around with both of them in her arms. She even places them carefully together on the couch before she heads to bed.
