Did you know that this year is Build a Bear’s 25th anniversary (UK/US)? I can’t believe it’s been around that long! To celebrate, they have been re-releasing old favourites from the last quarter of a century. Here are some of my favourites.

My absolute favourite is the ZomBear, which was re-released just in time for Halloween. He’s so cute, I especially love the stitched on heart.

The Colourful Stripes Bear was originally released in 2011. Their shiny paw pads are so cool!

I remember seeing the Hearts Fur You Pup in 2008, that must have been my first trip to the workshop. I think it’s really interesting how the style of Build a Bear animals has changed over the years.

The Curly Bear made its debut in 1997, but I think he’s timeless. His facial features are so cute!

One of the first ever Build a Bear designs was the Chubby Cubby. They look so different to the Build a Bears released nowadays. All the anniversary bears have a commemorative silver emblem on a paw pad.

The most kawaii of the collection so far is the Furever Hearts Bear, which features a very cute heart nose, a sparkly heart paw pad, and soft pink, purple and blue fur.

All 12 designs from the vault have now been released, though some of them are online only (UK/US), so remember to check before you visit a workshop.
