New Giveaway- $25 Gift Card To Build A Bear Workshop!

Ivy says:

Last week Build A Bear Workshop sent my daughter one of the new Hannah Montana bears. I’d show you a picture of the joyousness that accompanied her getting the bear, but my camera cord has gone the way of Nate’s missing shoe. So for now, you’ll have to imagine it until I can get to my mom’s and borrow her camera cord.

Anyway, in addition to sending the Hannah Montana bear, they sent me a $25 gift card to Build A Bear Workshop to give away to one lucky Home Ec 101 reader!

Also, here’s the pic of my daughter and the Hannah Montana Build A Bear! (Sorry it’s not the best shot of the bear- she couldn’t quit snuggling with it!)

    we love Build a Bear…granted we have only been once, but my daughter had a ball going there and picking out her cute kitty. It is such a fun time, I would love to do it over again and am thinking of going close to her birthday as a special treat. That Hannah Montana bear sure is cute, and your little one looks very happy in the pic!

    Your daughter looks so cute holding her bear.



  3. Jenna Z. on September 24, 2008 at 8:03 pm

    Oooh, neat! I have no kids so this stuffy would be…just for me!

    My daughter has been hounding me to go back into Manhattan to Build-A-Bear… How many bears can one little girl have?

    Also Hannah Montana Bear? What happened the dopey cute names like Beary Manilow, or Beary Ray Cyrus?



  5. Ali on September 24, 2008 at 11:32 am

    OOOH! Enter me please!



  6. Becky on September 23, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    Our family loves Build-a-Bear. I would love to take our youngest there for their birthday.

    My daughter always begs to go into the store when we walk by. I hope I win!



  12. HM on September 23, 2008 at 11:35 am

    Looks adorable! I’d love to do this with my niece (my son has his one and only bear bear already, lol!)



  13. kira on September 23, 2008 at 11:21 am

    Oh that would be so much fun! Of course … gift card would actually mean having to go to the mall though … lol! 🙂



  14. Angela on September 23, 2008 at 9:50 am

    meme…



  15. Kendra on September 22, 2008 at 10:02 pm

    I adore build-a-bear! I’ve totally considered doing it for my 21st birthday party… bears before booze, as they say!



  16. Casey W on September 22, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    My son is 6 months old, but my husband says we can’t build a bear until he is old enough. With the certificate my son can build one sooner.



  17. Elizabeth M. on September 22, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win. We love Build a Bear! We’ve enjoyed it many, many times and would love to go again!



  18. virginia on September 22, 2008 at 5:48 pm

    I would love love love to have this GC to take my little girl for a fun mommy/daughter day to Build a Bear! 🙂 Thanks for the fun contest!



  19. Ann on September 22, 2008 at 3:57 pm

    Great picture! Hope you find the shoe, if it’s like my daughter’s, it is either under something in the closet or it is under the stack of pillows in the living room. I’m glad Hannah Montana is back, my daughter loves her.



  20. amybee on September 22, 2008 at 1:44 pm

    Thanks for the chance! This would be a great birthday outing.



  21. Shauna on September 22, 2008 at 1:28 pm

    I would like to build a bear. Or I may let my kid do it if she asks nicely.



  22. Lafantasma on September 22, 2008 at 12:30 pm

    My boys are always asking to go into Build-a-Bear, which I generally avoid like the plague. It would be great to shock them once and say, “Okay!”



  23. Rachel D on September 22, 2008 at 9:56 am

    While not a Hannah Montana fan…we are build a bear fans…the idea of a $25 gift card would certainly help out for Christmas! 🙂 I’ve posted the contest on my blog as well…

    I was a home economics teacher for 11 year’s before “retiring” to stay home with my son. I would love the gift card! Visit my blogs when you get a chance 🙂

    my daughter wold love this.



  26. Angie @ Many Little Blessings on September 21, 2008 at 10:53 pm

    We’re planning a day trip soon to a museum that is not far from a Build-a-Bear, so this would be perfect for us!



  27. Courtney on September 21, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    My 2.5 year old would eat this up!

    (figuratively, not literally)

    Thanks for the chance to win!



  28. Becca on September 21, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    My 4 year old would really love to build herself a bear…she hasn’t gotten to do this yet and her birthday is coming up. Even if we don’t win, this may be what we do before her party on the big day (while daddy and fam decorate). How fun!



  29. Wendy on September 21, 2008 at 5:09 pm

    I am so sadly out of touch with popular culture that I can’t even picture a Hannah Montana bear (although my 5yo daughter’s older friends have introduced her to HM and she has told me this is her favorite story character…. should I be scared/worried/amused?) But we would definitely enjoy the BAB gift card! Thanks for the contest!



  30. Kaye on September 21, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    Hannah Montana bear? My daughter loves Hannah Montana. She would be over the moon for one of those.



  31. Kim Washington on September 21, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    Wow a HM BAB doll!! What will they think of next. My daughter would love it! My kids love BAB and my favorite is the Cookie Monster one my son has. I love cookies!!



  32. Chi on September 21, 2008 at 3:07 am

    So cute! Thanks for the contest 😀



  33. Genevieve on September 21, 2008 at 1:52 am

    And here’s my blogging entry

    http://mamaonabudget.blogspot.com/2008/09/soft-and-squishy-give-away.html

    My kids would be thrilled to do this – they both love all things soft and squishy!



  34. Genevieve on September 21, 2008 at 1:51 am

    Here’s my comment entry…



  35. Jennifer on September 21, 2008 at 12:57 am

    This is just what we need, an excuse to go to the mall. Sign me up, Thanks.



  36. janjanmom on September 21, 2008 at 12:28 am

    Enter me!! Twice, I am blogging a link to this now!!



  37. Tricia on September 21, 2008 at 12:16 am

    What a wonderful giveaway. I will be taking my niece and nephew to BAB in the next couple of weeks and this would help the overall cost considerably! 🙂 I have to admit though, it is very tempting to use it to buy one for myself, the moose and cinderella costume are adorable!

  40. themomhalf on September 20, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    my son recently asked if we could go back there, he loved it, we actually went 4 years ago I can’t believe he actually remembers (he was 6!) but then again the lion he got there is one of his favorites!



  41. Charlotte on September 20, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    I’m in – THANKS!



  42. Cori Westphal on September 20, 2008 at 9:54 am

    My daughter really wants this pink kitty they have. They are so expensive that she’s not getting it if I don’t win. Thanks for the opportunity!



  43. Cathy on September 20, 2008 at 9:34 am

    My 4YO would love this. We could make it a “date”. Thanks for the chance.



  44. Brenda on September 20, 2008 at 9:10 am

    Here is my entry!…thanks!



  47. Mary Jenkins on September 19, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    I love the tabby on their website!



  48. Katie R on September 19, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    Every time I take my little sister to the mall, she stares into that store with the most concerned look on her face as if she wants to say, “Why are all the bears gut-less?”



  49. Sun on September 19, 2008 at 4:32 pm

    My daughter would love to go to BAB & get an animal!



  50. Pam on September 19, 2008 at 3:56 pm

    My niece would be so happy if I got this for her. I would definitely be her favorite auntie at that o point. She just love the BAB stores, can’t go by one without going in. Kinda like grown women and jewelry, or pastries.



  51. Malia on September 19, 2008 at 3:36 pm

    Kids, schmids! I want the card for myself! 😉



  52. Alice on September 19, 2008 at 2:50 pm

    Ooh, build a bear! Fun!



  53. Gastrica on September 19, 2008 at 2:20 pm

    Long time reader, first time response. Would love a shot at the Hannah Montana Bear.



  54. Shanele on September 19, 2008 at 2:18 pm

    My daughter has yet to build one! Send it this way!



  55. Jessica C on September 19, 2008 at 2:17 pm

    My daughter once did build a bear with her girl scout troop she loved it. We would be so happy to win.



  56. Shoofly Mama on September 19, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    My kids walk longingly past the BAB store every time we go to the mall. I’m racing to my blog to get me an extra chance. PICK ME PICK ME!!! Next to figure out how to tweetter….



  57. Jen on September 19, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    Sounds like a fun activity for my son!



  58. sherry on September 19, 2008 at 1:53 pm

  69. Carol on September 19, 2008 at 12:09 pm

    My mind can only imagine what a HM bear would look like….. I hope you find the cord soon.



  70. Angie B on September 19, 2008 at 12:08 pm

    My granddaughter would absolutly love this. We’ve not gotten the chance to “build a bear” yet. That would be so much fun.



  71. Barry on September 19, 2008 at 12:08 pm

    What I’m afraid of is if it comes with an optional “Daddy Billy Ray” Bear….



  72. ZenOfJazz on September 19, 2008 at 11:57 am

    Hannah Montana Build-a-Bear? the possibilities are strange and confusing to say the least… is it a bear with a blonde wig? A bear that has “wacky-teen-secret-identity” adventures?
    Or a bear that gets too slutty, posing for Vanity Fair?
    *evil grin*
    The mind positively Boggles.
