You know what they say: Build-A-Bear, where best friends are made.
Well, make your best friend just in time for Valentine’s Day with the brand’s newly minted Valentine’s Day collection, an online hub featuring the cutest plush teddy bears, jumbo stuffed animals and more.
We know what you’re thinking: Build-A-Bear is only a kids’ brand. Sure, the brand is well-equipped for one-year-olds and elementary school kids of all ages, but the brand also has a more adult and risqué collection, After Dark, that features bears flaunting margaritas and Playboy-inspired bears in suggestive poses, but don’t be fooled; this collection has some elevated, on-trend bears that are perfect for your boyfriend or girlfriend.
That said, we pulled together a master edit of the 15 best Build-A-Bears to order online. Rest assured you’ll have one of the most sentimental and lovable gifts to offer the one you love this year.
Paw-fectly adorable, the Lil’ Cub Pudding Love Bug Gift Set is just shy of $20 and perfect for your Valentine. We love the heart-embossed headband and festive T-shirt, especially.
