    Does anyone know if we can buy the online prices in store? Like the Elsa bear for $10?

      Hi there! You could always call in to your location to see what they may have available. Hope that helps!

    Ohhh No! Here we go again!!! Moms get more crazy than kids for these bears 🐻! Please moms be nice and show respect in the store especially for your little ones because with this cold you don’t want to stand outside of the store for hours just to get a $5 dollar teddy bear! 🧸 Please think of your babies and kids!!! 🙏🏻

      We inadvertently were at a location in Orlando today to fix my daughter’s kitty who popped open and lost some stuffing. Didn’t even know this sale was today until we walked in the door. It wasn’t crazy and in fact, hardly anyone in line for the stuffing station was holding the $5 skins. It really wasn’t a big deal at all.

    Usually the sales for Build-a-Bear differ between in store and online, so probably not.

    I’m at a mall in California Los Angeles area Santa Anita Mall to be exact and there is a kiosk they have plenty of the $5.50 bears and there’s not a big line or anything.
    They are very cute.

    The last time you posted a sale I got the all brown gorilla and it was so incredibly soft and adorable!

    Wasn’t busy at all and the people there were all buying to donate to the fire station or hospital if they had multiple! We purchased to donate to the children’s hospital. Such a great deal!

    We went to buy extra clothes then decided to get the $5.50 light brown bear+clothes for her bear and extra clothes for her kitty at home, left spending $30, this mamma is on a budget. We did good, yes it was busy in both stuffing the bear & paying lines. Maybe 30 mins ea. We got there after 3pm-Los Cerritos Mall! Moms didn’t get crazy or anything, lots of people tho.

    Thank you for posting this. Our only experience with BAB is the July debacle and now today. I could tell by the lack of chatter on social media that this wasn’t a big sale so I took my 2 and 5 year old boys. They each got a bear. The line wasn’t long at all, maybe 15 minutes? — in fact, most of the other people there were buying other bears/animals, not the sale ones. We had a great time and I spent less than $12. Thanks, H2S!

      That’s awesome, Jessica! So glad you and the kiddos had fun and were able to snag a couple of furry new friends!
