Recall notice

Thanks to tigerhappy26 from our Bearville forum for bringing our attention to a voluntary safety recall by Build-a-Bear Workshop.

You will find the notice in store, or on their website, by following this link for more information: Colorful Hearts Teddy Recall Notice

According to the recall notice, the Colorful Hearts Teddy, model number 017107, is being recalled due to the following reason:

Certain production runs of this bear utilized substandard fabric which can tear around the eye possibly resulting in the eye falling out of the bear causing a potential choking hazard.

If you purchased this bear between April 2011-December 2011, bring it in to any Build-a-Bear Workshop store and you will receive a coupon for a brand-new animal of your choice from Build-a-Bear Workshop.

Thanks to forum member mickeyquack for pointing out this brand new sign that showed up in Bearville today.  The sign indicates that starting on December 26th there will be a new game and a special sweet treat at the Coffee Shop.  Any ideas on what Bearville has up its sleeve for the day after Christmas?

If you are serving Bearville as a Jr Cybearguide, be sure to keep an eye on your bearmail.  This year’s Jr Cybearguide holiday gifts are arriving and they are super cool.  The gift is a snowman chair which will look great in your Cub Condo throughout the winter months.

The Holiday quest is back this year.  To start, make sure to visit the elf located at the Train Station.  His reindeer dropped presents all over town and it’s your job to help him find them all.  If you successfully complete the quest you will receive a pawsome 100 Bear Bills!  Thanks to forum member savanahcute25 for letting us know about this.
