  • actually that is what we did for our daughters 1st birth day. It wasn't a huge party, just us. Her "snuggly bear" had an anforunent accident and had to be disposed of a few days before her birthday, so for her birthday we took her there to build a new "snuggly bear". It was fun... allthough.. 2 yrs later the bear looks like it was dragged through a war zone.

  • The one-year-old won't really get any benefit from it, I'd take that into consideration.

  • here's my opinion on that - sure your kid will get a nice bear but she won't remember the experience. So if you're wanting to pay all that money just so your guests get a bear and have a great time, then do it.

    I'm saving build a bear for when my kids are like 5 or 6

  • Honestly...not for a one year olds party, no. One year olds need something that will be active, running around,playing. It would be a good one on one thing for a parent or family member with just one one year old. But not many for a party.

  • No I'd rent a bounce house and call it good.

  • We did it for my nieces 5th birthday party and I thought it wasn't that great...there was just too much going on around us for the kids to even pay attention to it....also for the price you pay..the party is done so fast (lasted about a 20 minutes? tops??) not only do you have to pay for everyones bears...but then a party afterwards.

  • No, a 1-year old is too young for that. I wouldn't consider it for anyone under the age of 5.
