babw website update did not include making better games for play, which is a different site now...
old shortcuts not working for me now.
not appearing to be vast improvement at quick glance.
adults would like this?

The Anaheim location closed? I adored that one, but it was probably a good idea for Disney to close it just because I want to see this awful company fall to the ground.

the flash costume looks fine, but the cyborg just waves on the face. just like the cheapest costumes that have gone away elsewhere.
wonder woman bear slightly better than wonder cat. web exclusive? used to sell the experience, now ..give us your money ... is the attitude i keep receiving .. went to multiple stores today, not babw - they had stuffed animals not as expensive, some even better.
seems like they are not trying on their product in stores anymore. stock price down again since they announced time of next conference call, right around babw birthday. Are they going to announce - why bother getting our products? ..
let us see the stats for the products Babw has been eleasing.. the stuff it at home kits, did they go over well somewhere?
still have good memories of 2011 cardinal uniform on animal that we took to yankees fan's house. quality workmanship, same price range as cyborg costumes cheap feeling product.
maybe they could just have print it yourself stuff like they give out at the store. I guess they did that to make all animals bears earlier this month. ...

did a clicker type game where user ends up taking over the universe... wonder if this type thing could be used for bv...

My thoughts on the licensed bears above:

1 (Marvel Mega Minis Black Widow™ Bear) - This is just awful on so many levels, and I don't think I need to explain any further.
As for the Marvel/DC series in general, the Thor bear could have been cute but the eyes bother me a lot.
https://i.imgur.com/sUVA4cr.png
They have that same style you see in most animated children's shows that came out after 2014... I don't know how to explain it, but they're cheap-looking and ruined what could have been a decent bear.

2 (Online Exclusive Hulk Bundle) - I think it's pretty obvious as to why this is an "online exclusive". Why would anyone buy this??

3 (MY LITTLE PONY SONGBIRD SERENADE Furry Friend) - I don't think there's really anything wrong with the way the MLP series looks, but I think it's just a lame attempt to cash in on a wildly popular children's show.
I don't see very many parents buying this, simply because it isn't a good deal. You could probably buy 5 or so MLP plushies on Amazon for the same price of one at BABW.

4 (DreamWorks Trolls Poppy) - I have no clue what the heck Trolls is. And judging by how the furry friends look, I think it's best I keep it that way.

5 (New York Giants Bear) - The eye area still looks cheap, and the way the "ny" logo is stitched on looks weird... yet this is the least terrible bear so far.
The NFL bears in general are a mixed bag, but I like the ones for the Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers.

6 (Chicago Cubs Bear) - I think the whole series is actually really cute! There's nothing tacky (although the baseball ears are weird), and it just has one small logo on the foot.
But the MLP problem still stands: why buy these when you can get something similar for much cheaper? The MLB and NFL are two leagues whose respective team logos appear on almost every sort of product you can imagine.
One more thing—providing officially licensed products for sport leagues isn't cheap. Sharon may wonder why her business is going down... well, maybe she should consider spending less money on things like this.

7 (New York Knicks Uniform 2 pc.) - There's nothing wrong with these outfits, and I'm just showing them as an example of Build-a-Bear's over reliance on branded products. This series has no bears.

8 (Boston Bruins® Uniform 3 pc.) - See my comments on the Knicks uniform.

9 (Shopkins™ Bear) - This is one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen in my entire life.

10 (Online Exclusive Hot Topic® Bear) - Whoever thought this was a good idea must resign immediately. This is the sort of thing my best friend from elementary school would want... for all I know, she may actually own this bear.

bearville.com is why we bought, to bring to life in world and yours to keep forever.

answers to why not likely to buy in store or website.

other toys have wanted apps that are updated regularly.

Build-a-Bear's attempts to cash in on the World Series are nearly as pathetic as Game 7 was
