[img_assist|nid=976|title=|desc=|link=node|align=right|width=175|height=111]Some of you may have noticed some of your fellow Bearville Citizens with new hairstyles walking around Build-a-Bearville. That’s because 8 new hairstyles were added to the Bee Stylin’ Salon with yesterday’s update to BABV! Thanks to Lisa2Hip987 from our Bearville Insider forum for putting together this image of all the new hairstyles that were added. In total, 3 boy’s hairstyles and 5 girl’s hairstyles were added. Time for a haircut!!

With yesterday’s update, some “huge” changes were made to our Cub Condos – all rooms are noticeably larger, and many have been redesigned (ie: the Attic now has stairs)! The increased size is a very welcomed change, as it will give Bearville Citizens more opportunity to be creative with their room designs with more space and the ability to fit more furniture in each room. You can see how much larger the rooms are with my screenshot below — it was designed with the smaller size.

Along with this increased room size, Build-a-Bear removed the “arrows” from each room, so you can no longer walk from room-to-room in your Cub Condo. In order to change rooms, you must bring up your Cub Condo map, which has also been re-designed, and click on the room you want to go to. While this is an unfortunate consequence of the increased room size, we think our members will get used to it quickly and will appreciate the HUGE rooms!

We’re sure that most of you have noticed a new front page on Buildabearville.com featuring none other than our favorite eco-friendly Bearville character, Greentracks! Having Greentracks up front is to celebearate and make us all more aware of Earth Day 2010, coming up on April 22nd!

[img_assist|nid=970|title=|desc=|link=node|align=none|width=175|height=136][img_assist|nid=971|title=|desc=|link=node|align=none|width=171|height=175]

Along with the new front page, our members have noticed a few new items in the stores around Bearville. We’ve already mentioned the bonus Earth Day certificate for completing the Nature Walk, and we can now report there is a new Recycling Logo Hoodie and Denim Peace Skirt in Pawlette’s Boutique, and a new Recycling Rug and Recycling Poster in the Bear Stuff Store, all shown above!

Many of our members have noticed a few new features added to the Build-a-Bearville map with yesterday’s update. The most apparent of these additions is the new “Map Key”, which you can use to turn markers on and off when looking at the map. You can choose to show buildings, games, and shops with small icons on the map. This should really be a big help to new Bearville citizens trying to learn their way around Build-a-Bearville!

Also, we’ve noticed that if you zoom out on the map, there is now a castle wall surrounding Build-a-Bearville, with Hugsville and Friendship Valley just outside of the walls!

[img_assist|nid=962|title=|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=175|height=149]Today’s maintenance has brought a number of beariffic additions to our Bearmail.  Thanks to alicecoolgirl for spotting this new and totally cool information! We can now type anything we want in our Bearmail messages!

 

If you write something that is not in the Build-a-Bearville dictionary, you will see a message telling you that some of the words in your Bearmail message aren’t allowed. This way, you can’t write something that is bad or not nice — it’s giving you the freedom and keeping you safe at the same time.  Well done Build-a-Bear, this will make sending Bearmail to our friends so much easier!

[img_assist|nid=965|title=|desc=|link=node|align=none|width=175|height=147][img_assist|nid=966|title=|desc=|link=node|align=none|width=175|height=151]

In addition, there is now a “new” image next to Bearmail you haven’t read and the friend list for sending Bear Mail has changed as well. All of these new functions are welcome additions to the Bearmail system in Build-a-Bearville!

The newest Chloe Show has arrived in Bearville and it’s nothing like any Chloe Show you’ve ever seen. She’s on-location in the Castle and tells you all about the new Enchanted areas that have been added to Build-a-Bearville and tells you how to start the Dragon Quest.

[img_assist|nid=957|title=|desc=|link=node|align=none|width=175|height=118][img_assist|nid=958|title=|desc=|link=node|align=none|width=138|height=175]

At the end of the show, she rewards you by giving you a free Enchanted Move. Thanks to markbrown21 from our forums for the image of him performing the move!

build a story

Yet another new feature was introduced to Build-a-Bearville yesterday in the enchanted update!

 

Thanks to HannahMontanabiggestfan for letting us know about the “Build-a-Story Fun” feature that was added to the Libeary in BABV!

 

 

As you can see from ZoeyCuddles2474‘s images, you are able to choose various verbs, adjectives and nouns to fill in the story so it is told how you want it to be!

Beary Knightly

One of the members of our BABV forums, ZoeCuddles2474, discovered a third mini-game added to Build-a-Bearville with yesterday’s Enchanted Update — Beary Knightly! We had already blogged about the Dragon Care and Castle Photo Search games yesterday, but missed this one!

 

 

The Beary Knightly game can be found in the Main Hall when you “go back in time”. The object of the game is to protect the tower from incoming rocks and other projectiles. You have to be quick!
