Build a Bear

My 7 year-old DD just got really into B-A-B over the summer. She has a standard bear with a few outfits. We are looking at the website and have been to the store, but I'm trying to find less expensive ways to get clothing and accessories. We checked eBay and most of the things were actually more expensive than on the company website! Does anyone know how to find sales? TIA

I don't know how you can get the actual Build a Bear items on sale. But my daughter and I sometimes pick up preemie outfits on clearance at Target or Walmart. They usually fit her bear. We bought couple of pajamas and dresses for a just a dollar or 2.

Hi! I don't know how to get them on sale, either. Do they have a special mailing list? Maybe that would have some? Other than that the premie clothes sounds like a wonderful idea! Good luck! =)

Hi! My step daughter loves BAB, and we founf some good deals on bear clothes at Garden Ridge. If you check at the end of the season you can usually get them really cheap. I think we got a bunch of sweaters at the end of last winter for around a quarter a piece.

Thanks, but what is Garden Ridge? Can I get it online? I have a Snoopy with clothes from when I was about the same age. We tried some of his clothes on BAB and she got upset! They fit pretty well, and she did concede to letting BAB wear a Snoopy sleeper last night. Some of the things say, "Snoopy" so she feels they shouldn't go on BAB I think.
