SpongeBob SquarePants Exclusive Interview!

It’s SpongeBob time! The wait is over! We got tons of fabulous questions for SpongeBob SquarePants and we’re thrilled to share the answers to some of them below.  And starting May 17, you can make your own SpongeBob at a Build-A-Bear Workshop store near you or order online.  Thanks so much! Enjoy!

SpongeBob SquarePants is now at Build-A-Bear Workshop!

Question #1: How many bubbles do you blow in a day?

Bubble production depends on what’s happening on a particular day. But on average, I like to bring it around town at least 14 times.

Question #2: How did Gary come to be your pet? Did you get him when he was a baby?

Gar Bear slimed his way into my heart when he was just a mere shell of himself. I saw him at the snail store and you could say I knew from the first meowment I saw him that we were destined for each other.

Question #3: If you had to choose another fruit to live in, what would it be?

Maybe a banana since bananas have real appeal!

Question #4: How many pairs of square pants do you own? Have you ever tried wearing circle pants?

I have at least 9 pairs of square pants on hand at all times. One pair for each day of the week and two extras just in case. You know how it can be, working around messy food and all. I did try circle pants once, but I didn’t want to have to change all the monograms on my stationery.

Question #5: What does a Krabby Patty taste like? I need to know!!!!

It tastes like, um, well, well, it’s a taste so divine it can’t be put into words.

Question #6: Heard any good jokes lately?

You bet. Who’s grouchy and lives in the ocean? Mr. Krabby. Hahahaha.

Question #7: How do you stay so happy?

A Krabby Patty a day (plus good friends and the best job in the sea!)

Question #8: What is your biggest dream?

To spread happiness to the whole world, under the sea and on land!

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer some questions from our beary excited Guests!

Meet Debby and Sarah

At Build-A-Bear Workshop, we know families are beary important! Debby and her daughter, Sarah, both work at World Bearquarters in St. Louis. Debby has been a bear for 12 years. When Sarah was younger, she came to work with her mom to help out. Sarah had lots of fun working with her mom and enjoyed the unique environment. Sarah joined the company as an associate nearly 8 years ago!2013-4-16 Sarah T-Debby B-6

A lot has happened over the past 12 years! Debby now has 2 grandchildren, Sarah got married, and has a 5 year old! Now that Sarah’s married, she has a different last name. People are saying to Sarah and Debby, “I had no idea you were mother and daughter! That’s so cool!”

They both have only positive things to say about working at the same office. Although their jobs don’t overlap much, they enjoy being able to see each other most days and eat lunch together now and then. As an added bonus, they get to see a whole other side of each other by witnessing skills and abilities they wouldn’t have otherwise known about. For instance, Debby says she loves that she gets to see what a smart and capable daughter Sarah has become. She says Sarah makes everything she does look easy, including major events.

It doesn’t stop with Sarah and Debby. Sarah’s son, Austin, loves making bears at our stores, especially at our newly imagined store. And her dog, Cooper, has been coming to the office since he was just 10 weeks old.
