Build-A-Bear Workshop ®, the interactive entertainment retailer of customized stuffed animals, is continuing its relationship with Major League Baseball Properties (MLBP) to bring fans a variety of ways to show their team spirit this season. This is the ninth consecutive year that Build-A-Bear Workshop has joined with MLBP to provide Guests with furry fun for the whole family and as the baseball season gets underway with opening day games across the country, the company is stepping up to the plate with a lineup of bear-sized MLBP merchandise that is sure to be a hit with fans of all ages. The merchandise is available at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at buildabear.com ®.
Guests can create the ultimate stuffed animal fan with this baseball assortment, which includes club uniforms, tees and hats ranging in price from $6- $16. The officially licensed MLBP merchandise closely resembles what the players wear on the field, including big league style jerseys, baseball pants, stirrup socks and official team logos on the uniforms. Additionally, Build-A-Bear Workshop is giving young fans the chance to receive exclusive team-branded stuffed animals at select Game Day Giveaway events throughout the season.
“A trip to the ballpark is a favorite family pastime and Build-A-Bear Workshop is proud to be a part of the fun,” said Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop founder and chief executive bear. “We are excited to build our relationship with Major League Baseball Properties to continue offering our Guests creative ways to show their team spirit and enjoy the game all season.”
