Is your Bear really your Buddy? December Recalls are here and Roaring!

Who knew something so soft, cute, cuddly and lovable could break your heart?!?! Teddy bears…in the past their cute button eyes and nose made your fluffy friend seem more life like. Today it is common to see the eyes and nose made of stiching to prevent choking hazards to children. Build-A-Bear learned this lesson the hard way!

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc., of St. Louis, Mo. announced a voluntary recall of the Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears. The teddy bear’s eyes could loosen and fall out, posing a choking hazard to children.  The Colorful Hearts Teddy is a stuffed animal about 16 inches high with black plastic eyes. The bear’s fabric covering is printed with multi-colored heart shapes.  Consumers should immediately take the recalled teddy bear from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear store to receive a coupon for any available stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear. For additional information, contact the firm toll-free at (866) 236-5683 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, on Saturday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT and on Sunday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT, visit the firm’s website or email the firm at

  1. Uhm most of BAB’s shells have button eyes and noses. The stores offer like two kid safe bears and they arent worth the money. ALL of the bears should be recalled if u ask me
