Sensory-Friendly Time at Build-a-Bear

Build-A-Bear Workshop means fun for everyone! They’re proud to support children with autism and other special needs by providing sensory-friendly events at all Workshop locations. Sensory-Friendly Tuesdays are designed to provide a less-stimulating Workshop experience that’s still fun-filled and unforgettable. Their Bear Builders are here to make sure each Guest goes through the Build-A-Bear experience in a way that’s comfortable for them.

  • Dimmer lighting
  • Little to no music playing in the store
  • A step-by-step informational guide that allows parents/guardians to plan their Workshop experience in advance (click here to download)
  • All ages and siblings welcome

Sensory-Friendly Tuesdays are currently planned to occur on the first Tuesday of every month at all Build-A-Bear Workshop locations for the first open hour of the day. To ensure the BEARY best experience, please talk to an associate to check store hours and plan your visit.
