Make Myrtle Beach Memories And A New Friend

Summer vacation is a time to make lasting memories. What will your child remember most about a Myrtle Beach vacation? Maybe it's catching that perfect wave on a boogie board. Going up, down and around on a favorite carousel horse while waving to you. Or maybe just walking along the sandy beach with you searching for that special seashell.

This year, why not also take home both the memory of a great time together and a lasting reminder of the trip?

At Build-A-Bear Workshop®, kids can literally "make" a new friend. A bunny, a bear, just about whatever the heart desires can be customized from start to finish with special clothing and accessories. Choose the popular beach theme and create a new friend dressed in shorts and decked out with accessories like beach towels, Myrtle Beach bag packs, sunglasses and sandals.

You'll both leave Build-A-Bear Workshop with a smile on your face and a lifelong friend, as well as an extra special beach memory that can be treasured forever.
