From the Build-A-Bear Fact Sheet ---
Teddy bears are a tangible symbol of love, security and friendship. As
children, teddy bears kept us warm at night and comforted us while
protecting us from the monster under the bed. As we grew, they came to
symbolize romance and love. At all stages of life, teddy bears
represent happiness and safety and cheer us up when we are feeling
lonely or sad. They are our constant friends, and the bond we develop
with them is special.
Build-A-Bear Workshop(tm), Where Best Friends Are Made(tm),
debuted in Saint Louis Galleria in October of 1997. It was founded as
an interactive retail entertainment experience based on the enduring
love and friendship that connects us all to stuffed animals, and
especially to our teddy bears.
Build-A-Bear Workshop is a unique and exceptional approach to the
entertainment retail industry. The teddy bear theme is carried
throughout the store with original teddy bear fixtures, murals and
artwork. The store associates, known as master Bear Builder(tm)
associates, share the experience with Guests at each phase of the
bear-making process. Regardless of age, Guests enjoy the highly visual
environment, the sounds and the fantasy of this special place while
they create a memory with their friends and family.
