For my daughter’s 7th birthday, we decided to host a Build-A-Bear Party.
There are 3 branches to choose from – Plaza Singapura, NEX and Harbourfront (near Vivo City). We chose the latter as it has a bigger area for the girls to move around in.
The crew was very accommodating and friendly with the initial inquiries as well as subsequent arrangements. From the start of the party, the Party Leader (Lullaby) welcomes the girls and conducts ice-breaking games to keep them entertained. Encourage your guests to be punctual, but if they are late, the team at Build-a-Bear will help them to catch up.
A Lovely Ritual – Blessings For The Birthday Child
After choosing the desired bear, the girls were asked to choose a heart, followed by a sweet ritual. They were asked to bow their heads and wish or pray for a blessing for the birthday girl with the heart.

Then they picked another heart. This one, they were asked to rub it against their ears, nose, and muscles so that their bears will always listen to them, know who they are and be their strength when they need it.
After the bears were all stuffed. It was time to get the bears ready to be brought home. First, the girls “bathed” their bears at the Fluff Station, then they dressed it in their T-shirts. Voila, the bears are ready. The birthday girl got to give her stuffed animal a special brush down as well before it was properly stuffed.
Finally, the Team Leader will assist with the cake-cutting ceremony. Build-A-Bear has a policy that no food is allowed in the store. Hence, we had to suffice with a simple blow-out-candle ceremony at the entrance of the shop, amidst the prying eyes of some curious shoppers. No other types of food were allowed to be served. Hence, if you want a simple 2 hour birthday party, this is very ideal.
Thank you Build-A-Bear! We had an unfurgettable time!
