my DT got build a bear vouchers for their birthday so we want along and got them a bear each

while I was there I saw a my little pony build a bear and saw a sully - from monsters inc - being advertised

I'm 32 and not at all girlie - would I be unreasonable to get me one for my bedroom? I have the money so DT wouldn't go without?
my birthday is 6 months away so a long time to wait for a present

Yes! Go for it. I've got a Jedi build a bear that takes pride of place in my bedroom.

I have a blush and each year gets new Children in need clothes. I don't see why the DDs should get all the fun.

DO IT! You only live once grin

I was in a store a few weeks, I'm not one for cuddly toys but the My Little Pony is absolutely gorgeous.

The Sully looks slightly scary (why has a nice one never been released?) but the my little ponies are lovely wink

Why not, I am very tempted to get myself a my little pony one, the one with wings and rainbow wings and it will need the roller skates they do for them. not that I have spent time perusing build a bear website

Get one!

I have a lovely limited edition Christmas one - a little reindeer that comes out every year. DP bought me her because I kept saying I'd love one but couldn't justify it when I was a broke student!

I asked dh to surprise me for my birthday last year so he took me to build a bear and it was great!

I made a giraffe (Stanley) and got some outfits. Twas fun

DO IT! <I say this whilst cuddling my build a bear dog>

there is a rumour there might be a applejack pony coming grin

5madthings Tue 25-Jun-13 18:48:09

Oh god I have the link opened in another page, £19 for a basic pony, I want rainbow dash, and would need two pairs if skates at £5 each, and and and....perhaps I can convince grandma to buy it for 'dd' and then keep it safely away from sticky little fingures

I may have all the Mr potato head star wars figures they did, Darth Vader, r2d2 and a clone trooper... They sit up on a shelf where the madthings can't reach them!

I bought the limited edition Miss Piggy from build a bear and I am 36. smile

poppycock6 Tue 25-Jun-13 19:13:41

Yanbu. Love the build a bear! Think I get more enjoyment out of them than my DD's smile

HoneyDragon Tue 25-Jun-13 19:22:27

Applejack you say?

Dd got Rainbow Dash and they are inseparable smile

I like AppleJack though blush

floatyjosmum Tue 25-Jun-13 20:23:38

I have rainbow dash and I didn't feel too old - just too tall!

honeytea Tue 25-Jun-13 20:29:51

Yabu, it is a teddy, you are an adult.

I bought a build a brear for my (child) sister, she wasn't with me it was a supprise present but they made me kiss the heart before I put it in the bear, I was all alone, in my lunch break but there was lots of kids around so I had to kiss the fabric heart whilst the bear lady cheerfully said "kiss the heart and fill your bear with love" I muttered "it's not my bear" and left as fast as possible.

YANBU if if makes you happy then do it. Life is too short.

I'm obsessed with Woolly Mammoths, in the USA they do 'Build A Dino'. My lovely DH bought me a Mammoth and Baby and they live on our bed. 'Malcolm' the mammoth makes me smile whenever I see him.

I'm stunned.

GoshAnneGorilla Tue 25-Jun-13 20:45:08

Do it.

I cannot believe anyone would miserable enough to say otherwise.

Dd would love a Rainbow dash.

hearthwitch Tue 25-Jun-13 20:45:29

I've got a kermit and if they do apple jack I'm totally getting one.

DD3 has Rainbow Dash. If Applejack is coming out, I may need to buy it to keep Rainbow Dash company (fond memories of Applejack being my first MLP aged 5).

It's DD2's birthday in a month, and she wants a load of build a bear clothes. I have to confess to being a little bit excited about choosing the outfits with her. I clearly don't get out enough.
