My kids love their bears and also love Build-A-Bear. We've gotten them bears around the age of 15 to 18 months and the bears have been named Snuggy and Ellie-Bear. However, we know have a bear loving 18 month old without a bear.
I knew it was time when a few weeks ago we had to run into BAB for a second and she grabbed a teddy-skin and she hugged it and yelled "Ted-ey". Does it get more pathetic then that?
Shaney is now the proud owner of a fully stuffed Teddy Bear. She has the original name of Ted-ey.
