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.
â€œWe 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.â€
