It’s back-to-school time—at Build-A-Bear Workshop! Bear Builder University is enrolling students now, and we’ve got the deets on how your kiddo can score a space.

In its most educational experience yet, BAB is offering children the chance to become professional bear builders. That is, at least for the day.

Bear Builder University is a hands-on program that gives kids the chance to create their very own furry friend, as a Build-A-Bear Bear Builder.

The one-and-a-half to two hour workshops include a new furry friend (priced $22 or under), one clothing item, one sound or scent, a child-sized bear builder apron and a Bear Builder U diploma—and that’s all for $35! Classes start on Sept. 21 and go through Sept. 28. Adult supervision is required.
