The original build anywhere bear – Be My Bear – Review and Giveway

There is something about a cuddly teddy bear that the boys just seem to love! Every single bear in our home has a place and is loved by the boys, right down to the scrawny 28-year-old Bunny I had as a baby. Every evening after tucking the boys up in bed we have to kiss 38 bears goodnight too! But the boys love them and that for me is all that matters. Recently Be My Bear got in touch to see if the boys would like to make their own teddy bear at home.

Be My Bear

Husky Teddy Bear from Be My Bear

Be My Bear was founded in 2001 by friends Jane & Pippa and it is the Uk’s original Build-Anywhere-Bear company. Each Animal Kit comes with the animal/bear skin, super soft stuffing, a star charm, Birth Certificate, party invitation and a deluxe carry bag. There are also lots of clothes and accessories you can buy alongside to really customise your bear.

Selection of Animal making kits, clothes and accessories from Be My Bear

Our Bears

The boys each choose their own bear. Arthur had chosen the 16″ Rainbow Bear Kit, Oliver had chosen the 16″Camo Bear Kit and Jack chose the 16″ Husky Dog Animal Kit. Pretty much as soon as they arrived the boys were really eager to get going.

Making the bears

The very first step is to fill your bear with the super soft stuffing! Arthur loved having a play with it and it did take him a little while to fill the bear. After a little while, Mark did start to help him, but he is 4 and there was A LOT of stuffing.

Once all the stuffing is in the bear, you can place the satin make-a-wish charm into the heart of the bear. Arthur gave us his a kiss and placed it inside.

After which, all that is left is to use the one-way zip to close the back of the bear. That is it! It is really simple but lots of fun!

Both Jack and Oliver (8 and 6 retrospectively) were able to do the whole bear without needing any extra help. We were also really fortunate to receive an outfit for each of the bears too.

You can see Jack and Oliver making their bears below –
