Thank you to BI members kikichyna and bananascrazy for identifying the prizes being given out today.  First, in celebration of Build-a-Bearville’s 1st Birthday, make sure you log on and visit Bearemy, who is giving away a new party move!  Also, run by the Fashion District to claim your gift from Paulette: a One Year Anniversary T-shirt!  And finally, take the train up to the North Pole to claim your free gift from Holly who is giving away a scarf!  Special thanks to our own AmandaBearLove for providing the screenshots!
 
       
 
Also, dont forget that today, in celebration of BABV’s First Anniversary, you have unlimited plays at the Furtastic Fountain Game throughout the day!  It appears that each den gets to have unlimited play about two times an hour.  Play lasts for five minutes each time, and there seems to be roughly 25 minutes between each play time.  We have a tracking thread set up in the forum for members to share Fountain Time information:  http://www.bearvilleinsider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15085

The final "8th of the month" hidden gift has been found and identified thanks to Cindyrockerbear!
 
For those new to Build-a-Bearville, Build-a-Bear has been hiding an item on every 8th of the month in Bearville for just one day to celebrate 2008.  This month’s item is only available today and is a pair of moose antlers!
 
It is in the north pole town center,  there is a stocking that will glow!
 
 
Make sure that you log in today and claim your gift, as it won’t be available tomorrow!  If you are having trouble finding the location of the gift, read Cindyrockerbear’s thread here for a description of the location.
 
Also, thanks to vibeardiva for letting everyone know that Mrs. Claus is handing out a new gift today.  Click on her in Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole to receive a plate of muffins!

Bearville Insider member Rikeetikee has brought the new Hello Kitty to life online and has graciously shared pictures of her!
 
The exclusive virtual gift, also known as the pet special item (PSI), that comes with this precious furry friend is a Hello Kitty top hat.  You also get the exclusive wallpaper, a cub condo room, bear bills and the opportunity to play in an Animal Adventure when you bring this, and all new, furry friends on line using your Animal ID and key code from the birth certificate.
 
 
You can purchase the new Hello Kitty at BuildABear Workshop for $20.

Sarahbear371 and Kurber alerted us yesterday that the Moose Toboggan game is now online in the North Pole at BuildABearville.com!
 
You can choose to be either Hal or Holly Moose and toboggan down a hill full of obstacles, avoid the snow drifts and trees and aim for the ice patches (they make you go faster!!) and the snow jumps. The faster your time, the more bear bills you get!
 
Be sure and check out the new game and let us know what you think!
 
Temp glitch:  The Bear Bills that you win at the end of the game is not what you actually receive.  For instance, instead of getting the 22 bear bills stated, you get 5 bear bills.  Hopefully, this will be corrected soon.  But have fun in the meanwhile! This is indeed a great game!

Thanks to MotoXNicole we’ve learned what Maxine’s Decembear gift will be for you!
 
If you’re lucky enough to meet MaxineClarkCEB, Maxine in bear form, your gift will automatically show up in your "My Stuff".  She is the one who sweeps thru on random visits with a new gift and if you have not received the gift, when you enter the area she’s in, your account will trigger and you will get the gift whether you see her or not.  Thanks to JessBearHug for the description of Maxine and thread on all BuildABearville Special Guests!
 
Be sure and check out the Looking For Special Guests forum right here on Bearville Insider and post if you see her!
