We have some exciting news for you here at Bearville Insider.  I went shopping at Kmart and what did I find?  Twelve (12) different Make And Play kits from Build-A-Bear Workshop!  Nine of the kits sell for 12.99 each and three of them include a house to decorate that sell for 19.99 each. 
 
The smaller kits are perfect for gift exchanges with school friends and you have your choice of 9 different furry friends to make (3 are shown below)!  Each of the smaller kits comes with a 7" furry friend front and back that gets sewed together using embroidery floss through pre-punched holes with a plastic safety needle.  Also included is the stuffing, a heart, an outfit with foam accessories and decorations. 

The three (3) different larger kits each have a bunch of stuff to play with along with a house to decorate like a princess house, a Christmas house or a store!  These items are also available to purchase online at Kmart.
 

Update:  Each of the larger kits at Kmart come with one 7" furry friend, an outfit and accessories shown in the pictures above.  I bought the playful puppy kit that comes with a playhouse, and snackstand and flag.  Above you can see the shopper kit comes with a scooter and so on.  I bought a kit from Target and it comes with two (2) furry friends to make with the playhouse but without the extra accessory, like scooter, snackstand or princess chair. 
 
The best news of all for you Build-a-Bearville fans is that each item comes with a code for a free virtual gift.  The Kmart kits’ code gets you a sewing machine and the Target kits’ code gets you a playhouse!!! 
 
 
  
The codes follow:
  • Sewing Machine – X9CN-QXF2-Y88Y
  • Playhouse – 23D2-DSCZ-C968
Remember where you heard it from:  Bearville Insider the #1 source for information about Build-a-Bearville!

Build-a-Bear just sent out an e-mail to all members of Bearville, letting us know that Instant Chat will be here on Monday, November 24th! In addition, Jr. CyBearGuide members have a job–to suggest phrases to be added to the IC system!!
 
For those that didn’t get the e-mail, here is what it said:
 
Dear Parent or Guardian,
 
We have great news to share!
 
On Monday, November 24 we will release our NEW Instant Chat (IC). It makes chatting even more interactive, while limiting conversation to pre-approved phrases. We’ve added many new menu items, plus now you can type in the chat bar and see a list of phrases to choose. It’s intuitive, fast and fun!
 
Coming soon, Jr. CyBearGuide members can suggest phrases to enhance chatting options even more. If you or your child is interested in this program and currently not a member, you or your child can sign up any time.
 
Remember, if you would prefer that your child not chat or view others chatting in the world, you can still set their chat type to Silent.
 
We hope you and your child enjoy the new IC, which has been created in partnership with children and engaged parents like you! Please send any comments and suggestions to vwfeedback@buildabear.com
 
Sincerely,
Your Build-A-Bearville™ virtual world friends

Thanks to KristinPurrincess7 in our Build-a-Bearville forum for informing us that the third webisode installment of Hal & Holly’s Uplifting Christmas Adventure is now available for Bearvillians to watch! Head to the theater in the Furbulous Fashion District and enjoy the new episode.
 

 
The name of the webisode is "Christmas Cancelled?", and it looks like the webisode for next, week, November 20th, is called "Who Says Moose Don’t Fly?".
 
 
Also, a reminder, please be courteous to your fellow Bearville citizens.  
 
Treat it like a real movie and don’t stand in front of the screen, doing the upside-down move over and over again while people are trying to watch!

 A new Bearville Times has arrived in Build-a-Bearville and there’s some very interesting and much-anticipated information in it! Thanks to CutestKitten for being the first to let us know about the new issue!
 
First, the announcement that is likely to receive the most attention on Bearville Insider: Instant Chat is coming to Build-a-Bearville! Ever since the free chat was removed from Bearville, users have been frustrated with the slowness of Safe Chat and the inability to express themselves in Bearville.  We all hope that instant chat will be the solution to these frustrations, while keeping everything safe for everyone!
 
With the opening of the North Pole area and the Train to the North Pole just one week away, on November 27th, ChloeRocks will be hosting The Chloe Show on location in the North Pole. Somehow, she’s going to be interviewing a moose! Don’t forget, there’s a free gift for watching!
 
Finally, we noticed that there was a question about the location of the secret tree house.  We wanted to point out the location of the tree house and the secret coffee shop rooftop for those of you who hadn’t found them yet.  Thanks to octobreana and Teddy/JanineAllHeart6 back in September for finding the entrances to the secret Bearville locations!

We’ve got some news for all you Insiders to help you save money at your local Build-a-Bear Workshops! According to the most recent e-mail from Build-a-Bear, if you buy Hal & Holly Moose together, you save $12! Or, you could also look at it as: Buy One, get the other one 2/3 off, since they are still $18 each, while buying both is only $24.  For those of you who haven’t bought them yet, now is a great time!
 
We also have a report from one of the members of our Bearville forum.  Kclock101 discovered a pair of coupons on the back of a Teddy Grahams box in a local grocery store.  One coupon was for $5 off a $10 or more purchase and the other was for 15% off of a birthday party!

We here at BearvilleInsider.Com have sort of solved the mystery of the Baker’s Apron Set! We have confirmed that the Baker’s Apron Set comes from a universal code that the staff has verified and tested.  The part that we haven’t solved yet, is where the code itself comes from!
 
Many users, along with BABV employees, have insisted that the Baker’s Apron Set is included in the Cake Decorating Kit from Williams-Sonoma.  Oddly, some of our users have purchased all the sets and have reported that the codes are the same Universal Code as the Bear Head Cake!
 
In any event, here’s the code for all of you to enjoy.  Start cooking in those kitchens, and don’t forget the BearvilleInsider is your #1 source for everything Bearville!
 
 
Baker’s Apron Set: RH7K-4X3W-88MG
