Build-A-Bear Workshop teams up with BBC Children in Need once again to give Guests the opportunity to make their beary own Pudsey and Blush Bear. These are fabulous bears and I like my young boys and many alike adore. Following the success of last year’s campaign that sold over 11,500 bears, Pudsey and Blush Bear are back and now available at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores nationwide.
Pudsey and Blush fans are able to make their beary own BBC Children in Need mascot at any of 55 Build-A-Bear Workshop stores across the UK with £5 from the sale of each Pudsey and Blush Bear going directly back to the national charity Appeal. Blush Bear who is Pudsey’s ‘BBF’, likes playing the drums and dancing and is on hand to help Pudsey with his busy fundraising schedule, lending him a well needed paw when he needs it. Blush loves to have fun and comes with magnetic paws to help her cover her rosy cheeks.
New for this year is a furbulous Pudsey, who has been re-designed to feature a beary cute spotted heart, a t-shirt with an all new BBC Children in Need design and a bear-illiant pair of Pudsey slippers and pyjamas. Blush has had a make-over too with a beary pretty new pinafore dress. An additional £1 from the sale of the t-shirt, slippers, pyjamas and dress will also be donated back to the charity.
In 2010, Build-A-Bear Workshop donated a bear-illiant £135,000 to BBC Children in Need through the sale of Pudsey and Blush Bear and this year they’re hoping to do even better with the addition of new clothing for the furry pair. Every penny raised helps to make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK.
Build-A-Bear Workshop is based on the premise that nearly everyone, regardless of age, has a special fondness for stuffed animals. When Guests visit Build-A-Bear Workshop stores, they enter a light-hearted teddy-bear-themed environment. Guests are now be able to make and stuff their beary own Pudsey and Blush Bear, add a heart – a Build-A-Bear Workshop trademark – and if they choose, dress them in pawsome outfits.
“We are absolutely delighted to be partnered with such a worthy cause like BBC Children in Need again and with the addition of Blush Bear and a limited edition Pudsey Bear, we hope this year supersedes the previous year’s campaigns. Giving back to the community and helping children and families is a core value at Build-A-Bear Workshop and is at the very heart of our brand.”
Guests can support the cause by purchasing a Pudsey or Blush Bear from any Build-A-Bear Workshop store nationwide or from the company’s website at http://www.buildabear.co.uk. Pudsey Bear retails at £15; Pudsey Bear t-shirt at £5; Pudsey Bear Pyjamas at £10 and the Pudsey Bear slippers at £4.50 each.

Now, this is something I totally adore! I would be shocked if any parent has never heard of The Very Hungry Caterpillar (written by Eric Carle), as it has proven to be a very popular and classic children’s book. It is a wonderful book to read your child, and they will be filled with delight, no matter how many times it is read. My own children love this book so much, and knew all the words by the time they were two years old! It tells of the very simple story of a caterpillar eating his way through a variety of foods, becoming bigger all the time, until he turns into a butterfly. The artwork is glorious, with wonderful jewel-like colours capturing any child. So I was so excited to hear about a range of The Very Hungry Caterpillar tableware and gifts by Portmeition – absolutely stunning and delightful!
While caterpillars can be a nuisance in the garden, their sweet images are a treat for children (and adults) at anytime. But to have these images at mealtimes, I am sure any child will be more than happy to polish off any meal! The very Hungry Caterpillar range by portmeition, depicts adorable images from this classic children’s book, hosting a range of tableware to gifts. Guaranteed to bring a smile to your child’s face!
From plates to double handed mugs, to egg cups and cushioned lap trays, I feel any of these products would make a truly wonderful gifts for any young child. I absouletly love the Cookie Jar! Portmeirion’s Very Hungry Caterpillar Cookie Jar (£21.00) is a great children’s storage jar for bits and bobs as well as cookies. It is bright and bold, and kids will be delighted to eat cookies from it - not to mention the adults!
