For the past five years, we've visited Build-A-Bear Workshop at our local mall many times. Our girls always have such a fun time going and making their animals, and its a great time for the whole family. I've wanted to work with Build-A-Bear Workshop for a long time, and while it would've been fun to go to the store, we were happily sent the adorable Sparkly Hearts Tons of Love Elephant for review. 


I consider Macyn our little Valentine's Day baby. She was born February 7, 2012 and that means her second birthday is this week! I thought this adorable Tons of Love elephant would be perfect for her because of her birthday and the theme of love and Valentine's Day. 

Our package arrived in the mail the week before Macyn's birthday party so I quietly sat it back and anxiously awaited her party day so I could see her reaction to this elephant. 


Sparkly Hearts Tons of Love Elephant comes complete with a Sequin Heart Dot Tee & Tutu Outfit ($12.50, 2 piece), Red Sparkle Bow Flats ($7.50), Sequin Heart Purse ($5) and Red Sequin Heart Antenna ($3.50). It measures at 17" in height, and is so soft to the touch. She has a cute tail with red hair at the end and a pink heart on the tip of her nose. Beautiful blue eyes and long eyelashes round out the features of this elephant, along with a nice big smile. 


The elephant retails for $20 and then the accessories are an additional $28.50 to round out this full package with a retail value of $48.50 when everything is purchased together. All the clothing is removable so you can purchase additional pieces and have multiple outfits for your animal for different occasions. 

With more than 30 stuffed animals to choose from (bears, bunnies, dogs, kitties, monkeys and more), and a variety of stylish outfits, accessories, sounds and embroidery options, there is something for everyone and to fit every budget.


You can find the above animals as a part of their Valentine's Day items available online and in local stores. You can also purchase gift cards if you're not sure which is best for the little ones in your life, and let them create their own "beary special gift". When in stores your child gets to insert a plush heart in to the animal before helping the worker stuff them to your liking. They also put your child's name inside, and if its ever lost it can be returned to a store where they can open up the back and get your information to ensure a safe return!
