A Million Hearts A Million Wishes #shareukbabwwishes

Adventures/ Charity/ Review

This afternoon the kids and I got to visit Build-A-Bear Workshop to check out their Valentines range and see what their A Million Hearts A Million Wishes Campaign is all about. Boo and Bugs had great fun making their ‘bears’ as you can see from the photos below! They were both allowed to chose a bear, a sound, an outfit and shoes from the Valentine’s range.

A very friendly lady helped him choose his bear, pick a sound, stuff him and then place his heart inside, after he was stitched up Bugs then went to groom him before getting to chose his outfit and shoes. I know Lero the Lion is going to be very well loved… he hasn’t left Bugs’ side since we got home 🙂

The sound Boo added to Ellie was A One Direction song, I actually encouraged her to get this one in the shop but already I am starting to regret that LOL Boo took making her wish very seriously before placing the heart inside Ellie… she asked on the way home when would her wish come true?!?

Back at home in love with their new ‘bears’

Anyway let me tell you all about the A Million Wishes A Million Hearts campaign… Until Valentine’s Day, guests in store will be invited to share photos and videos of their “heart ceremony” on Twitter Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. For each post featuring the hashtag #shareukbabwwishes, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate £1 to Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Up until the 31st March you can also purchase a purple satin heart for a £1 donation to support Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Please help where you can; Starlight is an amazing charity that does a lot of fantastic work, if you are visiting Build-A-Bear Workshop don’t forget to tag your photos with #shareukbabwwishes

Lero the Lion

We loved our visit to Build-A-Bear Workshop, the Valentine’s range is adorable and I know there are going to be lots of very lucky people out there tomorrow receiving them! Personally I’d go for Bearemy… he is just too cute!

* We were given both of the children’s bears free of charge in exchange for visiting Build-A-Bear Workshop and sharing their campaign with you.
