-Each bear comes with a plush ice cream cone ad a special offer from Baskin Robbins.
There are four bears in the Ice Cream Bear collection...Bubblegum Bear, Orange Sherbet Bear, Mint Chip Bear and Hot Fudge Sundae Bear.
What we say:
We let 4 year old A handle this one:) She chose the orange sherbet bear and named her Sherbert(very creative, I know:) This was her first experience at Build-A-Bear Workshop and she absolutely loved it! The sales person was very helpful and knowledgeable and amazing with the kiddos. A loved every part of making her bear, but her favorite part was picking out the clothes. B was a very good sport...I don't know how many outfits he helped A try on Sherbert before she picked a cute pink sundress. A had so much fun "building" her bear and both kiddos have really enjoyed playing with her, I'm sure we'll be back to Build-A-Bear soon:) ABCD Diaries gives Build-A-Bear and the Ice Cream Bear Collection an A!
