Bearemy®, our huggable mascot, was born on August 21st, 1998 in St. Louis, Missouri. When he came to us we knew he was a beary special friend, so how would we find the pawfect name? We put out a search in all our Build-A-Bear Workshop stores to find the beary best name for our new friend! We had lots of great ideas, but the one that fit the best was from our young friend Samantha from Madison, Illinois – Bearemy!
Bearemy is 9 ½ paws tall (about 6’4″), but is beary shy about his weight. Let’s just say he LOVES honey!
Bearemy quickly became the hottest bear in the country. He enjoys meeting our Guests at new store openings and in-store events. He also travels around to visit children in the hospital and where ever someone needs a hug.
Bearemy gives the beary best hugs and believes that a bear hug is understood in any language! He gives thousands each year!
Look for Bearemy at in-store events at Build-A-Bear Workshop or when a new location is opening in your area!
