Build-A-Bear. Pony? Build-A-Pony.

Today, I gave a pony life!

In celebration of the new My Little Pony plushies that hit the store, I had my first ever trip to Build-A-Bear today! I've always wanted to go enjoy the novelty of picking out and 'giving life' my own cuddly toy, but never really got around to it until this week. They've released two My Little Pony plushies in their line so far (Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie) but if they do well, I've heard they're planning on releasing Twilight Sparkle and Spike. Let's face it, I'm going to buy them all.

The whole experience was utterly adorable. If I had children, I would absolutely drag them along to a Build-A-Bear store for their own personalised critters. I helped stuff her and picked out a tiny heart to gave 'a wish and a kiss' to before placing it inside her. Then she was stitched up and handed over to me, complete with a birth certificate. Truly something to cherish forever, even for a non pony collector. The quality is gorgeous, too. Far nicer than some of the other official Pony plushies I've seen, with an embroidered cutiemark symbol and fully embroidered eyes. I can't wait to go back and snap up Pinkie Pie. And maybe some cute little clothes.

How To Be A Grown Up 101, you guys.

One way or another, I'm making one Sat. Don't know which one yet.

You inspired me to take my friend this Saturday to make ponies as her birthday treat. That photo of you and Dash OMG so sweet.

I am somewhat disappointed that there is not a voice chip for Pinkie that says "Best. Day. EVAR!"

Oh man, I want to this so badly. We don't have that many build-a-bears in Québec. There was one in Ottawa when I was a kid and I always wanted to go.

Oooh. I like those plushies. They have real hair :D
I think there is one about an hour south of here. Too bad I have no way to get to Albany :(

They do look pretty awesome. I wasn't expecting them to be in the UK at the same time as the US! I do want one, but that does mean a trip into town. How much were they here?
