Select AMC Theatres in Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania opened Build-A-Bear Workshop Pop-Up shops. The in-theater shops offer an abridged version of the traditional Build-A-Bear Workshop store experience.
This includes making your own furry friends, including characters from some of the summer’s hottest movies. And you can watch them come to life at the mini stuffer.
A selection of accessories, clothing, scents, sounds and pre-made stuffed animals is also available at the Pop-Up Shops. New similar shops opened at AMC locations in Texas, Kansas and Missouri.
And that’s not all. The Carnival Cruise Line Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea experience, which launched in summer 2016, is now available aboard all 25 Carnival ships. There are many choices in these shops. The selection also includes a signature Carnival bear, Carnival tees and backpacks, and an exclusive Make-Your-Own Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat.
And there’s more! Build-A-Bear and Beaches Resorts have partnered to elevate the ultimate family-friendly vacation offered at all three of the company’s luxurious resorts. The shops feature a traditional Build-A-Bear experience with wide choice of plushies, outfits and accessories.
Build-A-Bear Workshop also returned to Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Fla.; Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn.; and Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas, offering even more furry-friend fun through Labor Day 2017 as part of the resorts’ annual SummerFest event.
“Whether it’s catching a movie at AMC Theatres, taking a Carnival Cruise Line cruise, or hanging out at Beaches Resorts and Gaylord Hotels, summer is a great time for families to travel and make memories together,” said Sharon Price John, president and CEO, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “As we approach our 20th birthday, we are offering new and expanded experiences from Build-A-Bear Workshop in even more places. Each of these partners offers our unique make-your-own-furry-friend experience in hot spots where families will be going this season to spend time together and be entertained.”
