Giveaway: $25 Build-A-Bear Workshop Gift Card!


I'm not going to lie. I fell in love with Build-A-Bear Workshop last summer during the blogger conference they invited me to here in St. Louis. It was a really awesome experience. Whenever I get an email asking me if I want to do another review and giveaway with them, I always jump at the chance.

So here I am, jumping at the chance again. This time they want you to know about their Valentine's Day collection of Love Bugs and Bears. Take a look at these three cuties:
We opted to make the Sweet Dreams Love Bear to bring home with us today. Here you can see her peeking out of her cute Valentine's Day box:

And here she is out of the box:


Cute, huh? Just in time for Valentine's Day, Build-A-Bear Workshop wants to give one of you a $25 gift card to give to the love bug in your life! Here's how you can enter:
  • Simply leave any comment on this post. Who would you give a Build-A-Bear Workshop gift card to?  That's an automatic entry. 
  •  For a second entry, check out Build-A-Bear Workshop and let me know which bear or other animal you might pick out.
  • For a third entry, follow @BuildaBear on Twitter and tweet this: #Win a $25 @BuildaBear gift card via @MeganDunham right here: http://bit.ly/g4IXpG - Come back and leave an extra comment letting me know you did that.
  • For a forth entry, mention this contest on your facebook wall and include the link to this giveaway: http://bit.ly/g4IXpG. Come back and leave another comment for that one too.
  • For a fifth entry, "like" Build-A-Bear Workshop on Facebook and mention you entered this contest on their wall, including this link to the giveaway: http://bit.ly/g4IXpG Come back and let me know you did that.
  • For a sixth entry, subscribe to the blog, Half-Pint House Handouts or follow it via Google Friend Connect in the right sidebar of that blog.  Note: This is a different blog than the one you are on right now. I'm in the process of switching my reviews and giveaways over there. Sorry for the temporary confusion! Come back and let me know that you did it!   
  • Go back to my landing page for this week's giveaways and reviews. Choose one of my "review only" posts to leave a comment on and then come back saying you did that. Presto! A 7th entry!
Open to US residents only. The winner will be selected by Random.org. This contest will close on Friday, February 4. The winner will be notified that weekend and will need to respond within 48 hours or risk forfeiting the prize to the next in line.  IMPORTANT: You must make sure your Blogger Profile has your email address available for me to contact you. If it is set to private or otherwise not visible, you will need to add it in with your comment. If I can't contact you, I will choose another winner. It's happened before.

Congrats to:











Yay! I'm contacting you now!

Click here to see the rest of this week's giveaways and reviews.
Disclosure: We were given our own $25 gift card to make the cute bear you see in the photos above. If you are in St. Louis, let me suggest you NOT go to the store at the Holy Spirit (aka: West County) Mall on a Saturday afternoon to redeem your card as you will have to get in line behind everyone else in the city who will also probably be there on that day. I speak from experience. Ahem. But the staff were really nice, so do go there another time, just not on Saturday afternoon.  I keep a proper disclosure statement available right here.

I would give the gift card to my daughter. She has been wanting to have a mother/daughter date night, and this would be a big part of it!

I would give this to my little guy who is turning 5 (can't believe it!) at the end of the month. He's wanted to make one, but I've never wanted to pay the money for a stuffed animal! (I know, I'm mean ;)

Katy said...

Personally, I think the British Palace Guard or Viking are hilarious, I think my guys first choice would be a train conductor, but I didn't see that, so it'd probably be a toss up between a Toy Story character and a fireman.

cstironkat said...

I would give this to Sidney who would be thrilled if we were to win.
