Pinterest: Are you on?

Are you on Pinterest? We are! You can find us at http://www.pinterest.com/buildabear. If you have no idea what Pinterest is then here’s the scoop. Pinterest is a place to organize all those recipes and household crafts you find online that you want to make someday when you finally have time to think. But now, instead of wishing and hoping that you would remember where you found them, you can just go to one place: Pinterest! Pinterest lets you create virtual pin boards and organize all the things you find online that you love. Then, here comes the best part, you can go back to them later and actually make them – or buy them, or whatever else you want to do with them.

So we’re on Pinterest too, and if you would like to follow us, you’ll get to see great gift ideas, cool kids crafts, fabulous family recipes (even things the kids will love) and a whole lot more. Just go to www.pinterest.com/buildabear to follow us. If you don’t have a Pinterest account, click the Request Invite button at www.pinterest.com.

We can’t wait to see you there!

-Molly Saunders, Digital Bear
