Hi everyone. It’s that time of year again! No, not Christmas….Children In Need time!! :o) I have fond memories of staying up really late to watch every minute of the Friday night program and this year will be no exception except my daughter will be snuggled up with me on the sofa enjoying the program too. You can read all about Children In Need and what they do with the money they raise from the appeal by clicking here. Please make sure to watch Children In Need 2012 on BBC 1 at 7.30pm on Friday 16th November 2012.

Plus for each Pudsey or Blush outfit sold there will be £1 making it’s way to Pudsey Bear’s Children In Need bank account.

I have not yet taken my daughter to a Build-A-Bear Workshop but I have been there myself several times when I was younger. My favourite part has always been recording a message to go inside my bear (this does cost an extra £5 but well worth the money!). Do you know what is even more amazing though…you don’t actually have to shop in-store to be able to add a personalised message to your bear. You can actually still record a message for your bear from the comfort of your own home, all you have to do is make sure you add the Build-A-Sound message to your basket you then once your order is placed you phone a special free telephone number where you record your special message (a bit like an answerphone). I think that is such a fantastic idea and it allows people that can’t get to a Build-A-Bear store to still enjoy some of the magic even when shopping on online.
Please note that I have not been paid to write this post or received any products in return. This post has been written as I wish to raise awareness of the Children In Need appeal and I think it is fantastic that Build-A-Bear workshop are helping to raise funds for such a worthy cause.
