Pat Weaver Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 23 Nov 2020

It tells the story of the child going to a build a bear store and choosing a bear, stuffing it dressing it etc. All pretty pointless without the bear, so a complete waste of money. I even looked at buying the bear ready made, but the story then doesn't make sense. Not worth the money and an expensive mistake.

More pages could have been added. You guys could have added the actual bear with the book and charged $60 for both book and bear.

  • In the Book Team 24 Jul 2020

DEREK Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 8 Jul 2020

It was very cute, and seemed physically well crafted. It was a bit on the expensive side from a pure content perspective, as the book is short even for a child's book. However, it's still worth it for the charm and adorableness it charges forward with, especially when it stars your own furry friend.

I was very happy with the Christmas story book I bought for my grandson. It was nice that inside I was able to include a message and that his name was on every page of each story. A lovely touch was having a photo of us on the back page. A very nice gift box too !

Build a bear book

I bought the build a bear book for my granddaughter, and because it doesn't come with the bear it is a waste of time. Had i realised that the the story is all about building the bear i wouldn't have bought it as it doesn't work. It is well presented, but much too expensive for what it is. An expensive mistake for me, one present less for my granddaughter, please don't make the same mistake. I just can't recommend it.

I still have not received my book

I still have not received my book. It’s been well over two weeks. Can’t track it because it cannot find my order number. When I called they said the order number doesn’t show anything. I was charged for the book, and an international fee (I live in the United States).

  • In the Book Team 24 Nov 2020

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Your order has been shipped by USPS and we have passed your query onto our Customer Service Team. A member of the team will be in contact shortly with your USPS tracking information.

    In regards to the International fee, this is due to our payment merchant being located at our main Head Office in the UK and therefore some banks believe it is an international order and a small fee will be issued. This is something that the bank should be able to refund.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.
