We are where nostalgia lives

The holiday season is fast approaching, which means that all you parents and grandparents of little ones out there are actively thinking about what toys should be on your shopping list this year. What better toy to buy your little one than a Build-A-Bear? The toy-making store is officially opening in select Walmart stores across the nation.

So far, Build-A-Bear Workshops have popped up across six different Walmart locations as part of a testing program. According to USA Today, a majority of what’s included in the standalone Build-A-Bear Workshops will also be included in the Walmart locations, including bears (and other animals), accessories, and more.

How romantic! Build-A-Bear Workshop dates are a-go now.

This isn’t the first Build-A-Bear Workshop marketing tactic

The main goal is for Build-A-Bear to be able to sell more bears due to the high demand of Christmas shoppers looking for toys for their kids or grandkids… and what better way to market themselves than to put their workshops right in the middle of busy Walmart locations?

This isn’t the first interesting advertising tactic Build-A-Bear Workshop has done to earn more profit. Back in July, the workshop opened a “Pay Your Age” event, where the children who were earning a stuffed bear would pay the amount that reflected their age. So, a 5-year-old (or rather the mother of the 5-year-old) would pay $5 for their bear, which is far less than the actual price. This event was so popular and generated so much interest that they needed to close the event down due to safety concerns.
