Kid-friendly music stations aren’t always parent-friendly, but if you’re looking for some tunes that the whole family can jam to, look no further. The new Build-A-Bear Radio is here to please all ears, young and old. Read on to find out how you can tune in anytime.
In partnership with digital broadcast platform Dash Radio, Build-A-Bear Workshop launched its very own radio station for kids. The 24/7 streaming station will feature music for kids that parents can enjoy too. Build-A-Bear Radio will also feature fun and kid-inspired content, like the segment titled “BEAR-aking News,” which will offer family-friendly news stories for the day, and “PAWsitivity Plays,” which will highlight good deeds done by kids.

“Music is an important part of the Build-A-Bear Workshop experience,” said Sharon Price John, president and CEO, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “Hit songs and original music, inside sound chips that are added to our furry friends, have been incorporated into our Make-Your-Own process for years.
To kick off the new station Grammy-winning artist Jason Mraz debuted a new version of the single “Have It All” featuring the voices of The Jason Mraz Kids. “My passion to use music for the power of good aligns so well with Build-A-Bear’s mission and their encouragement of creativity and discovery through making furry friends,” said Mraz. “The launch of Build-A-Bear Radio is an exciting opportunity to begin our collaboration and debut an exclusive version of ‘Have It All,’ featuring talented young artists. We are looking forward to the opportunities and potential of what’s to come.”
