Topaz Gem Hunt in Bearville!

March 27, 2008

A new Gem Hunt will start on April 4! topaz.jpgJust a reminder – you can look at the March and April scheduled events by looking at the sidebar and under ‘Recent Posts’ click on Build-A-BearVille April Calender and events!

  • The beach party is listed in the Furry News Flash and the March calender as ending on March 30 but the billboard in the Neighborhood says April 9th.

    Hey just out of curiousity…does anyone also collect the “coillectibear pins?” Also, about the beach…it’s ok, I thought is was going to be more stuff. Either more games or more places to go. They should have done a game with the jetski!
    PS…”woohoo!! third comment!” LOL

    OMG I got my Pink Hearts Teddy in the mail today and she is SO.PRECIOUS. One of the cutest bears I have, I think. 🙂 I dressed her in the “Fuchsia bubble dress” (a pink halter) and it’s just too cute. 😀

    Okay, so I ordered my bear online, and I don’t see anything that has a code for the beach on it. Is that only available with in-store purchases? Does anyone know?

    Yes, I am. I was about to log off, do you need something?

    Hi everyone! I have to tell you. Regarding the sexually explicit post in this section yesterday:

    I’m sorry that I wasn’t here soon enough to delete it before you all saw it. Clearly many of you were upset by it too. Thanks to those of you that responded so appropriately and sent this person away – they are now unapproved to post and banned from this site. I have their ISP address on file. This person had posted as ‘themselves’ that we have gotten to know recently in Bearville then almost immediately after as the alias Rockmysocks25 with the explicit content. Sadly it was a post from an approved blogger from the same IP address (which means the very same computer).

    I deleted almost all of the posts from yesterday to clean up this particular blog entry and any ‘new’ bloggers less than 1 day old.

    I tried to decide what to do to prevent this from happening again, I thought about making the blog private but one of the things I like, and I know the 3,000+ buildabearville fans that come here like, is that you can just reference information without signing in.

    And have I told you all lately how much I appreciate your help with gathering the information for this blog and for contributing to such a fun, safe atmosphere?! ~ so like they say in Project Runway ~ Carry On!

    I wasn’t on much yesterday. What happened? You can email me if you want to.

    I know it’s tough trying to keep everything together here, Freya. You’re doing a great job, and there will always be idiots on the internet!

    Ohhh thanks sammik that’s encouraging!!

    We had someone post a few elicit comments not appropriate for kids to see. The person also posted first that they agreed to all the rules and wanted to join the site.

    You’re a sweetheart, thanks!

    Yeah, I’ve had to deal with my share of internet spammers this year. I sent in a letter to the editor of my school newspaper and in response had people posting anonymous insults about everything from intelligence to looks. It’s crazy what people will do just to hurt/shock other people.

    Thank you Neko Zoey! (hehe now you know that’s how I remember you)

    You’re very kind, and a good friend too!

    You’ve done a great job with this blog, Freya and I really appreciate all you do. But I also understand that you have a life outside of this and these things happen. We all need to have some patience when it does because even in private groups, these kinds of things happen. You can just do your best.
    THANK YOU!!! You’re the best!
    Now, back to bears:) My bear had a mind of his own yesterday. I logged on to see if the glitch was fixed, which it wasn’t (still wearing pink glasses that I don’t own). My little bear walked all around the condo, all by himself. Very cute:)

    New newsflash!

    “Bearemy can bearly wait to cele-bear-ate April Fool’s Day! Visit him in Town Square Tuesday, April 1 to get a pawsome gift!”

    “Starting April 1, visit the NEW Pawsitively Green center to go on The Environmentally Pawsome Nature Walk to help clean up Build-A-Bearville, and earn Bear Bills, too!”

    can anyone tell from looking at the picture where the “pawsitively green center” is going to be?

  17. sushirox336 permalink

    the paw print that usually says “play now”
    now says “play now for free”.

    Hmm, sushirox, you are absolutely correct. I didn’t even notice that! And sarahbearish, doesn’t it look a lot like the Sports Complex, where you play soccer??

    But then again, the only place I recall seeing a circular flower bed is in the neighborhood…

    Thanks Freya for all the work you put into this blog!
    As for the recycling center, I think it’ll be in the neighborhood. It does look alot like the Sportsplex area, but if it’s facing left I don’t think it’ll fit.

    Some people can be so ignorant!! Don’t they realize there is mostly kids reading these blog!! Thanks for keeping things safe and clean for the kids out there!!

    I have a question maybe I don’t know how or just don’t realize but can u take off your backpack or not? I see people walking around without one!!

    I am also having the same problem with my person! Every time I log back on she is wearing her dog tag and sunglasses that I keep removing!! My name on the Ville is DanielleBearDiva!

    Okay, so here’s a glitch:

    I finished the quest for my Hearts Teddy and won the couch. Well, later, I clicked on the Safari Leopard and it asked me which quest I wanted to do (I still had the Hearts Teddy in my bag). Well, it let me complete another quest, but when I clicked “complete”, it just gave me an “internal error” message. I didn’t get anything from it, but it was fun. 🙂

    sorry but you can not take off your backpack. those people you see with no backpack have no buildabear on babv.

    Funny thing I’m doing the Topaz Teddy’s quest now!!! I saw her in the neighborhood, so I clicked on her. I expected her to say, “come back April 4…” but then she said to look for five gems and come back!!! Has anybody done it?

  26. jocelyntlo permalink
    March 31, 2008 3:10 pm

    Of course I didn’t find any gems last night. I thought it was so odd. The picture of the Topaz Teddy shows her standing where the adorable elephant was, but when I saw her yesterday she was standing by the billboard in the neighborhood. I asked a few others in the neighborhood with me and they too said they didn’t find any gems. It must have been a gliche/test run because she’s not there today. Weird, huh?

    So weird…I was just walking around and I saw a yellow rectangle box on the roof. So I clicked it and it said “Congratulations, you found one heart.” Then I thought about it, it had to be the topaz gem. But why would it say “heart?” Strange…Topaz Teddy isn’t even in the neighborhood anymore.

    Well now, I have only one gem to find. But since Topaz Teddy isn’t even there anymore (at least not until the 4th) where do I go for my prize? The places that I did find the gem I know it wasn’t there before, so maybe they are ocassionally planting them. After all, it shouldn’t have even started in the first place.

    hi everyone…I found 4/5 gems but can’t find the fifth one. all GEMS ARE YELLOW
    5) ???

    So you are able to do the gem hunt!? I thought it was just me. Yes, I too, can’t find the last one. But, when (if) you do find the last gem, where do you go? Because Topaz Teddy isn’t there anymore.

    oh jeez freya *hugs* — you do a great job on the site and I think it’s really cool that you still find the time to do it (in *your* schedule, WOW!).

  32. JessBearHug permalink
    April 2, 2008 2:01 pm

    Ok, I posted in the wrong section before. I saw the Topaz Teddy this morning, on the sidewalk in the neighborhood. I found the 5 gems, went back, collected the 500 bear bills, and then when I logged in later, she was gone. I guess they must keep testing her until they leave her on for real on the 4th.

  33. jocelyntlo permalink
    April 2, 2008 3:01 pm

    JessBearHug, You found the fifth gem! Congratulations! I haven’t been able to log on today, so I still have one to find. 😦

    Hey Freya! I know now we can get mail via Bearville, but is there a way we can mail eachother on here? I know it’s probably too much to ask…I just haven’t matched my friends list from here to bearville.

  34. sammik permalink
    April 2, 2008 3:48 pm

    Yeah, I’m not seeing the Topaz Teddy now. Lucky ducks. 😛
