Today's question is...

How did you find out about BABV?

I don't remember exactly how I found out. I think that I went to the store to make a furry friend (Rudolph), and the store associate told me I could register him online at buildabearville.com. I probably then made my account when I got home. That was way back in Decembr 2007!

I think i just went on google and searched for "fun online games" or something like that because i was getting bored of lps. that was on june 14, 2009. i was really late to babv, and i regret that... i think i may have avoided signing up for a while because i thought you needed a bear

it's so hard to think that one internet search was the beginning of a 5-year obsession

Practically the same story with mine, except it was 2007, and I don't have a bear at that time, and that was when I'm obsessed with it

My sister had a BABW birthday party back in 2008 so I was given a birth certificate there, but only made a bearville account in 2009 one night when I was bored

My parents told me that since my brother and I got $50 gift cards, we'd go to *spoilers* after taxes. I told my aunt, who had several Build-a-Bears and she said there was a Build-a-Bear Workshop there. We went on March 15, 2009. I noticed the ad for buildabearville.com on the bottom of the certificate, and I joined the next day, March 16.

The people in store told me, and I played for 3 years until I grew out of BABV

I made my frog in February 2009 and I was told about BABV. I registered when I got home, but back then it never worked properly for me, so was not before 2011 when it changed to bearville that I could play properly. And then the addiction started.

PS: Almost two months now (bearville closed down).

I have always loved bears, and in 2003 (yes, it's been a part of my life for that long) a friend recommended I get a bear. I played with hers a lot, and finally convinced my parents to get me one on my birthday in 2005. And honestly it's always been a part of my life since then.
