November 2016

What is your child hoping to find under the tree on Christmas morning? How about a huggable, customizable new buddy?? Build-A-Bear Workshop has launched the Make-Your-Own Troll collection in celebration of DreamWorks’ Animation TROLLS. The collection includes huggable Trolls characters Poppy, Branch and Guy Diamond, in addition to a pre-stuffed Cooper. You can customize your Trolls and other classic Build-A-Bear Workshop furry friends with a fun collection of outfits, hair accessories, backpack clips, sound chips and more.

Having loved the TROLLS movie, our kids were thrilled when Poppy and Guy Diamond joined our family a few days ago. Both are super cute, very huggable (bigger than I expected!) and ours are tricked out with some great sounds (Poppy even sings part of her hit song Get Back Up Again). Poppy arrived ready to party in some gorgeous sparkly shoes and with hair clips to complete her look).

In addition to the Trolls, Build-A-Bear Workshop has introduced a holiday collection of its Merry Mission reindeer, Glisten, Twinkle, and Tinsel! Golden Glisten features bright golden hooves and light-up antlers, and her younger siblings, Twinkle and Tinsel are top graduates of The Reindeer Academy.

We we fortunate to receive a Tinsel, complete with black boots to keep his adorable pleather hooves dry and a fur-trimmed satin cloak for those cold winter nights. He’s been an instant hit in our house! I wonder how long until we get requests from our kids for his siblings to join the family?

The Build-A-Bear workshop in Chinook Centre has these and many other favourite characters, just waiting to find a home with your child this Christmas!

Thanks to Build-A-Bear for supplying us with 3 sample characters for the purposes of evaluating them; the opinions expressed here are my own. ~am
