From the website:

And no sewing is required - close the zipper, cut the string, and seal the industrial-strength velcro & your Buddy is ready for you!

We specialize in Do-It-Yourself Birthday Parties!!


When the package arrived, Julien and I opened it together. I hadn't told him that we would be doing this, so he was quite confused when he pulled out an unstuffed bear.  I read the instructions and explained to him what needed to be done.

At first, he watched me and when I tried to get him to help, he didn't really want to. However, after watching me stuff the bears head, he decided to give it a try - and he did a pretty good job with it! I was actually surprised - based on his age - how well he did!

After we stuffed the head, arms and legs, we half stuffed the bear, he made a wish on his star and put it in the centre - and then we were able to finish.

With your animal kit, comes an adoption certificate - Julien decided that he wanted to name his bear "happy birthday bear".

All in all, it took us about 20 minutes to make the bear - and he had a lot of fun in the process.
