    Employees say:


    “The most amazing thing about working at Build-A-Bear is the customers. It is so touching to know that what we do impacts their lives. I helped a grandmother memorialize her granddaughter by putting a recording of her heartbeat inside [a toy bear]. At the end of the experience, the grandmother gave me a huge hug and thanked me for making it so special. This is just one of many stories.”


    “When I began working here, I felt an immediate sense of acceptance, which I have never felt anywhere else. We are all truly a team and a family and that’s a rare thing to find in our business. Everyone is so supportive of each other and it’s a very safe feeling; even our mistakes are accepted, and we all help each other to improve. It’s just plain fun and I always look forward to coming in.”
