Sports BuildABears and a Fan Finger for Furry Friend(TM)!

April 6, 2008

Baseball, apple pie and an online Fan Finger?! “Where does that come from,” Syneyvaughn asked and I have been on a quest to answer ever since! Baseball remains one of America’s favorite pastimes and what better way to celebrate it and integrate a child’s love for sports memorabilia than with the Build-A-Bear Workshop(R) experience. When it comes to sports, the BuildABear Workshop stores have plenty of Furry Friends to help you celebrate your favorite team. In a recent Press Release, Build-A-Bear Workshop states ‘for the 2008 season, Guests can show their love for baseball in, the Build-A-Bear Workshop online world. After making a stuffed animal at a stadium store, each Guest is able to bring a furry friend to life in the online for FREE world and receive a special gift for their online character when they complete a unique quest.”

  • ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 1, 2008–Build-A-Bear Workshop(R) and Major League Baseball Properties are taking the field again this season to provide fans with furbulous ways to show their team spirit. A trip to the ballpark is an experience children will remember for a lifetime, and the Build-A-Bear Workshop make-your-own MLB(R) Mascot locations allow fans to take the fun home with them. (ref: April 1, 2008 Press Release)

The first blogger to provide a picture of the fan finger wins 200 Bear Bills! Please provide a link to photoshop, tiny pic or any other service that includes either your own fan finger, or a picture of it in someone’s dock or of someone holding it! If you own one I could meet you in BearVille to take a picture too.
Congratulations Jen/Rini/Emi aka JenniferLoveable!!!

    1. look at your keyboard and find the printscreen key that should be to the right of the F12.
    2. press it when you see a person with a foam finger.
    3. go to paint
    4. click “edit”
    5. click “paste”
    6. cut out the part you want
    7. paste it to a new document on paint

    Try pressing shift and print screen (next to f12) at the same time.

  11. April 6, 2008 11:53 pm

    Thanks Jen!! Pick a time and i will meet you at Rainbow Den Neighborhood to give you your prize – give me 2 options with a five hours notice and I’ll confirm which one I can do.

    I’ll also be on from 6-6:10 am same place.

  12. April 7, 2008 9:27 am

    You have to make a bear at a Stadium store – the stadium stores are all in the major league ballparks. The closest one to me is 2 hours away 😦

    I don’t know where one is?

    i think the closest one to me is like 5 states away 😦 hopefully i can trade someone!!

  15. April 7, 2008 10:59 am

    There are currently only 5 In-stadium store locations that I am aware of: Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Cleveland, San Francisco and St. Louis. They may have added more since the Press Release though, see the directions in the top blog post to check out the Press Releases.

    This will be a very hard to find item in Bearville.

    Freya – Would 6-9PM be okay? :3 EST. But really, if not, tomorrow would be fine too @-@

    I’m upset about the stadium thing. While I could go to the Mets stadium, my family is really into the Yankees and that’d be a sin unless the Yankee’s were playing there >>

  17. April 7, 2008 5:50 pm

    Definitely Jen! I’m meeting 2 others at Rainbow Den, Neighborhood at 7pm. I’ll look for you online between now and then too(it’s almost 6pm).

    No, I mean the signs are everywhere. Looks like the video will be in the performing arts. Maybe that’s why Maxine was there tonight. To put up the signs.

    Pawsome Regansosweet! Looks like you were dancing up a storm! Great shot of Maxine leaping, thanks for sharing those with us.

    Thanks for finding out about the finger! At least I know where it comes from but there’s no chance I could get one on my own 😦

    it seems as though here that all you have to do is register a bear from the ballpark, not actually go there and get the code seperately. therefore, when i go to bab tomorrow, i will find out by registering one of my old bears as a ballpark bear and let everyone know.

    What are your character names? Really want the Maxine slippers and the newspaper.

  32. April 29, 2008 2:08 pm

    Actually Peterbear1,
    I broke one of my own rules (as stated on the about page) when I responded this morning so I am slapping my own hand and bowing out. There is no trading on this blog ~ but since I broke my own rule I will let you and Waldso complete negotiations for a trade – only of the fan finger and only between you two.

    If that doesn’t work out then I urge you not to post further regarding trades.

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks so much for your understanding!
