Build-A-Bear Workshop: New Disney Princess Bears


“The new Disney Princess Collection from Build-A-Bear Workshop brings the magic of the Disney Princess world to life by allowing Guests to celebrate their favorite Disney characters and create princess moments of their own.”

Build-A-Bear Workshop has always been such ‘loved thing’ in the eyes my girls, hence the fact that I’ve featured the brand and their products a few times over the years. If my kids love it and its deserving to be buzz-worthy, you’ll know about it!

Now while we don’t have a Build-A-Bear store in my city, it’s top of the list when we shop in another. Choosing your bear, actually making it and then shopping for accessories, what’s not to love?

There’s great sense of pride and wonderment when a child chooses and creates a loved friend to take home. As a frugal parent, I also appreciate their constant sales and promotions {hint, register for their free newsletter, to get offers and coupons by mail}.


New in 2013 is the Disney Princess Bears at Build-A-Bear Workshop {yay for little Disney fans!}. My daughter got word of the new line in a Build-A-Bear mailing sent to her. Oy, the screams. The smiles. The excitement. So, when our friends at Build-A-Bear offered to send Isabelle her choice of any Disney Princess Bear, I knew she’s be more than appreciative  And gloriously happy.

I actually chose Isabelle’s new Disney Princess Bear for her, though it wasn’t too much of a guess considering she circled her favorite and tacked it to her pegboard. Yet, looking on the site, there are some great ones in the collection, all with difference accessories and features. Quite the impressive selection!

In no time my daughter was sent her very own Royal Disney Princess Bear, and she wasn’t expecting it when the package came for her.

With a jaw-drop I loved her surprised expression and that instant beaming smile of attachment and friendship. Goes to show that ordering on the site produces that same excited feeling, almost like creating one of your own in stores.


Royal Disney Princess Bear is a pink bear with a Rapunzel costume, purple gem heels, purple panties, crown, wand, and even a glow-in-the-dark wig! Yes, I said glow-in-the-dark wig! My daughter loved that this Build-A-Bear friend had hair to brush yet it can be taken off, which is a bonus if they sleep with their bears, like mine do. As well, we all know Tangled’s hair glows, so this Princess Bear is so true to the character. Yet the adorable factor doesn’t stop there.


The Royal Disney Princess Build-A-Bear comes with a light-up want, removable tiara and a beautiful costume. Her dress has a delicate hem, cameo and tiny details proving quality and thought went into the attire. Yet let’s not forget that every Princess needs shoes, this one with purple sandals with gen accents. Take off the shoes and there’s silk detail on the bottoms of the bears feet {which you can see in the top photo}, proving it really is a Disney Princess Bear.


Just like Disney is in itself, the new bears are magic, extraordinary and bring out the playful imagination in children. Plus being Build-A-Bear, a faithful friend that will be taken everywhere. Isabelle’s ‘Tangled’ actually just went with her on a camp-out with her Girl Guides troop!

WIN IT: Sharing the love and magic, one of my Canadian readers is also going to get their own Royal Disney Princess Bear from our friends at Build-A-Bear, arv $61.00.
