Bring the magic of Build a Bear home!

So you've gone to Build a Bear and built your bear. They have had their clothes changed how many times by now? Well now what? heh. Build A Bear Workshop on DS offers the magic of build a bear with far more things to do!

Just like the real thing, you get to pick out your own bear in the DS game. You pick the stuffed animal (bear, dog, monkey, ect), the clothing, and you even get to name your new creation. Once you have your new friend made the fun begins. You can earn new outfits, dance moves, and accessories. You do this by playing mini games, my favorite of which is the cooking game as it reminds me a lot of the cooking game I play through one of those online game play sites. Along with the cooking game there is a dance game that is sort of a simon says, the game shows you a shape then you draw it correctly, a common type of control for DS's that honestly I am horrible at.

Needless to say I loved the game especially its simple controls and easy mini games, as this game is ment for children under 12 (though I'd really say its perfect for the 4-7 range) the only real issue with it as all the directions for the games is in text. Though I'm fairly positive a three or four year old could master at least some of the games the reading would be an issue. So, I would highly recommend that parents play the games through with their kids at least once if they cannot read the directions. Once they understand how to play though, I'll bet you'll have a hard time tearing them from it!

If your kid has friends with the same game they can link up through wifi and share outfits, photos and more. You can learn more about Build A Bear Workshop on DS on The Game Factory website!

Build A Bear Workshop
for DS is available right now on Amazon!

My favorite thing about this game is the fact you don't have to go to the store at the mall and pay for each new animal, LOL.

Wow! The first to comment! How exciting! We love to go to Build a Bear, The kids would enjoy playing a game about one of their favorite stores.

Sandy said...

Thjis looks great because they love bab ws here but it gets expensive- this way they can create and create until they pass out or get bored and it would be pasing out. This looks like alot of creative fun that is clean.

Sonya said...

I really like the idea of it having the mini games. Gracie likes the mini games in her Mario game. So, I think this would make her happy.

i like that you can cook in the game

Michele said...

There are lots of things I love about this game!!! It's a familiar concept for kids who have been to Build-A-Bear, and I really like how much of the store is part of the game. It seems to be very interactive, which I love, and the mini games sounds like a great idea, too. It's also so colorful, and I think that kids will be drawn to the colors, the animals, getting to care for the animal they choose, and the idea of having a game to go along with their animal from BAB.

Thanks so much!

Erin said...

The better question would be, what's not to get excited about?? :)

coriwestphal said...

To be honest, the best part about this game is that you don't have to go to the store. My daughter would love taking care of the bear after creating it. Thanks for the great contest!

Miranda said...

I love that this is an easy to play game. It seems like far too often we buy games that are just too advanced (right now anyways) for my seven year old to even play. I am definitely going to have to look into getting this game as a Christmas present if we don't win. Thanks for the great review!

You can have 3 characters, so one of the games could be mine on there! I need games that would be simple enought for a 3 year old, because when its video game time, my daughter gets frustrated because everyone (even hubby plays games) plays cool games but her. I would love to play this with her.
