Best kids' birthday party ever!

Wow! We hosted my daughter's fifth birthday party at Build A Bear Workshop in Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, and it was a blast. For $25 per child, I was able to purchase party that involved 1-1/2 hours of bear fun, which had the kids:
- picking their own bear shells based on the parent's budget and stuff them)
- stuffing their bears with a heart (because everyone knows you can't live without one!)
- dressing their bears with outfits and bows
- choosing a sound for their bears
- singing silly songs and a doing a little dancing
- naming their bears
- receiving a goody bag

I can't say enough about the party leader Nalini, who was energetic, fun, completely connected with the kids, and always in charge of the whole group of 6.

If you're looking for a birthday party option, this will work for kids from 3 years and up. For girls, the appeal of building a bear will span all ages; boys may lose interest after the age of 6 or 7, but there are plenty of hockey jerseys from real NHL teams and Star Wars outfits to please them too!

And no mess to clean up at home. Do they feed them?

No, they don't feed them unfortunately. But after the party, I gave each child a cupcake.
