Product Review and Giveaway! Holly and Hal Moose

This may go down as the cutest and most fun review my children and I have had the opportunity to participate in. :) 

Do you have any last-minute Christmas shopping left?  Any young people that are special to you on your list?  Want to get them something cute, fun and one-of-a-kind that will entertain them far beyond the holidays?  Well, here you go!


The Build-A-Bear Workshop has some new furry friends and a special book just for this holiday season.  Holly & Hal Moose are two adorable new additions to the Build-A-Bear Workshop family. 

100_7281 Here is my ds4 with Hal Moose himself.  Oh, he is so cute (well, they both are imo) and soft and cuddly.  But wait...

100_7282 You may not be able to tell in the pic, but his antlers light up!  Oh, you should have seen the expression on my ds's face when they did. :)

Now Holly and Hal also star in a cute book called "Holly and Hal Moose:  Our Uplifting Christmas Adventure."

100_7285 100_7286 Ds reading to Hal here. :)  Of course we have read the book every night since Hal arrived and it has really heightened the Christmas spirit at my home.

Not only are these critters adorable, but a good deal as well.  Holly and Hal are $12 each and the book is $15.99, but if you buy both Holly and Hal you get the book free!  This was an excellent opportunity for me for gifts for my out of town niece and nephew...each got a bear and the book to share.

Now don't think that the fun ends after the holidays with this pair.  No way!  Now Build-A-Bear Workshop has an exclusive online virtual world at, where the kiddos can play games and earn Bear Bills to spend on virtual clothing, accessories and decor for their virtual house!  Both my ds4 and ds3 (8yo) loved playing online and I liked that it was a fun and safe place for them to be.

Of course, the Build-A-Bear Workshop offers much more for the young ones on your list, with personalized gifts galore!  There are more than 30 furry friends to make at Build-A-Bear Workshop, including bears, monkeys, bunnies, cats and dogs.  Plus, they offer cool clothing for the friends like Disney's Hannah Montana couture and authentic sports team uniforms.  Truly a unique and personalized gift for that special someone.  Not sure which one to pick?  Well, you can't go wrong with a Bear Bucks gift card, allowing the recipient the unique Build-A-Bear experience for themselves!  Last year my dh had to spend a week in nearby Destin on business and the family and I accompanied him.  The boys and I found a Build-A-Bear workshop and ds3 had a blast creating his friend. 

Here's the best part!  I have a $10 Bear Bucks gift card to give away to one lucky reader.  What a great stocking stuffer, huh?  The rules are simple, just leave a comment on this post with an email address to contact you with and cross your fingers lol!  This will be a quick one, so I can get it in the mail and get it to you (hopefully?) before Christmas.  So leave a comment NOW and I'll announce the winner (chosen by random) at 8 P.M. CST on Sunday the 21st.  Told you it was quick. :P  Good luck!
