I love a company that stands behind their products.
What about one that goes above and beyond?
I am totally in love with Build-A-Bear.
Not only do they have the cutest stuffed animals that you can customize with clothing and accessories, they go out of their way to make sure you are happy.
The animals are made from quality materials and stuffed with love and all sorts of other goodies. We own several, and even after repeated loving they are in excellent shape.
We did have one tiny little mishap. That was completely our fault. Well, Dude's fault.
One of Devon's Build-A-Bears, Carrie, a koala, was minding her own business when Dude (the villain of this story) decided to have a little fur-covered snack.
He literally bit her nose off. Yes, it was a tragedy and Dev was devastated.
Offers to replace Carrie weren't good enough (yes, I had a duh mom moment) so Dev took it upon herself to write to Build-A-Bear to see if they could repair her. (We of course were willing to pay whatever it took to have a beloved family member restored to health.)
Not only did Build-A-Bear refuse payment, they covered the shipping, repaired Carrie good as new and sent her home in a brand new outfit.
We were totally overwhelmed- as I am sure you know, this is NOT the norm for companies today.
We can highly recommend Build-A-Bear with no reservations whatsoever.
That being said, I've decided to put my money where my mouth is.
I am offering one lucky reader a $25. Build-A-Bear e-gift card so you can create your own furry friend.
This giveaway is open to anyone who can shop online at Build-A-Bear... I don't know what countries they ship to, but if you can receive it and/or find someone to give it to, you can win it.
You need to work a little bit for this one- head on over to Build-A-Bear and tell me your favorite furry friend. That's it, easy peasy.
You can get one entry per day - additional daily entries don't require this step.

The giveaway will run from now until February 28 at 11:59 pm CST.
A random winner will be chosen and I will email them the GC on 3/1.
UPDATE: Blatant Bribery here: I found out a new recipe we were messing around with over the holidays is in a contest that is partially judged by how popular it is. Every one of you who votes 5 stars for our Super-Fluffy Shortbread Cookies and comes back and lets me know will get an extra entry.
Thank you, thank you, I love you tons and tons and bunches and bunches.
Oh, and if I do happen to win I will do a super-special additional giveaway!
