Checking Our List #21: Build-A-Bear Workshop Rudolph & Clarice {Review & $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Busy Working Mama!}

Even though holiday decorations started showing up in stores months ago, there are a few things that really symbolize the true beginning of the season for me. The constant Christmas music on the radio, the decorative lights beginning to appear on houses in the neighborhood and seeing cars driving down the highway with a tree strapped to the top are just a few.

But, when walking in the mall, I always know that the season is growing near when Build-A-Bear Workshop begins to display their increasingly adorable holiday collection of furry friends.

This year, Build-A-Bear Workshop has increased their level of cuteness even more with the Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer Collection including a whole line of various fun friends and accessories. And the main stars of the show this year are none other than Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer himself and his love interest, Clarice.
Considering that Big Sister E and Little Sister B had no prior experience with Build-A-Bear Workshop, there was definite excitement in the air when Rudolph and Clarice arrived here recently. From the iconic boxes that double as houses to the soft, plush characters themselves, there were smiles all around as these new Christmas pals were unveiled.

Standing 18" tall, these reindeer aren't just cute and extremely soft, they light up and recite lines from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer movie. In fact, while Big Sister E and Little Sister B were pressing on the ears of their new friends to make them talk, there were quite a few times that Rudolph and Clarice seemed to actually be interacting with each other.

"Hi, my name's Clarice. I think you're cute," she would say, only to be following by his response of, "I'm cute! I'm cute! She said I'm cuuuuute!" which would make Big Sister E turn and look at me in laughter and surprise. From that initial meeting and entertainment, the girls and their reindeer have been friends ever since.

Although Build-A-Bear Workshop is known for being a wonderful store to visit and create your custom furry buddy, the website is a great place to head to when you need a gift or want to have some fun as well. Shopping by occasion, recipient, great value gifts and so much more allows you to find just the right high quality animal each time... or cute accessories to add to previously purchased ones.

For kids, Build-A-Bear Workshop also has Build-A-Bearville, a safe online environment for kids to personalize a character, interact with other kids around the world, play games and earn points to buy virtual things and more.

Plus, to take the fun with you on the go, the Build-A-Bear app for the iPhone, iTouch and iPad will bring you special offers and info on the latest furry friends while giving you (or your child) access to Build-A-Bearville whenever and wherever you are. Best of all, it's free!

This holiday season, surprise the young (or old) Build-A-Bear Workshop fans in your life with the addition of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Clarice and more pals and accessories that are sure to please. With options to add personalization, sound, a birth certificate and more, there is a new stuffed animal friend to bring home to fit a large or small budget and go perfectly under the tree.

Thanks to the generosity of Build-A-Bear Workshop, one person will have the opportunity to pick their favorite soft character online or in-store, because...

One lucky person will win a $25 gift card to Build-A-Bear
Workshop (in-store or online)!
