Default Bringing a Furry Friend to Life

Once you have created your account in Build-a-Bearville, the first thing that you will want to do is bring your furry friend to life. If you have made a furry friend since October 2007, there will be a code on your animal's birth certificate.

If you click on the help button when you are entering your certificate code, it shows this sample certificate - the certificate above is not real. Jess
If you do not have a furry friend with a code, you can go to the BABW store and request a welcome pass. The welcome pass is a code that allows you to bring up to 5 furry friends of your choice to life on the game. You can also obtain a welcome pass code via e-mail. However, these codes are only good once.

There are two places to enter your code: the virtual BABW store in Town Square or your PDA.

In the virtual BABW store, click on the bear behind the counter.
Click the image to open in full size.

Select the Bring Furry Friends to Life Online option on the menu.

Select whether you have a birth certificate or a welcome pass.

Enter the codes. If you have a welcome pass, select your animal. The code is good up to 5 times. If you are using a birth certificate, the computer should automatically recognize your furry friend. However, if you have a new furry friend, the computer might not recognize it, so you might be given the option to select a different furry friend. I would suggest exiting out and retrying in a day or two so that you can select the correct animal.

If you are entering your animal directly from your PDA, select the gold bear head icon. At the bottom of the PDA, you should find an icon that says Add a Furry Friend.

That button should take you directly to the BABW store to enter your codes.

After you enter the codes, your furry friend should appear in your backpack, and you will receive a virtual reward if you used a birth certificate. You will also receive an e-mail from ChloeRocks welcoming your furry friend to the community.

Very nice guide!

Just a note on top of your info, welcome passes can also be attained from emailing BABV. I emailed all my info for my old bears that was on the birthcertificate and they sent me welcome codes for them all. However the codes they give online only work once so you need to request the number you want

Default New furry friend

the last furry friend I entered code for it made me pick a picture of bear and I picked wrong won and got the wrong virtual gift. Is there any hope bearville will change back to not having to select picture?
