Build-A-Bear Workshop Harajuku Hugs Panda Review + Bear Buck$ Giveaway!

Build-a-bear panda review

build a bear panda

The new Harajuku Hugs Panda is part of a partnership Build-A-Bear has set up with Gwen Stefani. The Build-A-Bear Harajuku Panda has a full line of clothing, accessories and stationary designed by Gwen Stefani that reflect her love for the Japanese culture and pop art.

The Harajuku Hugs Panda stands about 18 inches tall and has black and white markings on her body. Her cheeks are blushed and her eyes are accented with heart shaped spots. She’s smiling and a very inviting bear.

When my Harajuku Hugs Panda arrived she was dressed to the nines. She has sparkling heals with bows and gems on them, a pink poofy skirt with pink tulle underneath, and a shirt covered with hearts and pandas with matching under pants and her outfit is topped off with a headband with a bow.  Her outfit is so adorable, your little girl would probably want one just like it!

Build-A-Bear Workshop’s Harajuku Hugs Panda and all of her accessories will be available online and in stores on January 18th, 2013.

  6. I have been Googling this bear since I found out about it and I found your blog! The Harajuku bear is super adorable and I would probably buy one if I won the gift card. Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. My boyfriend goes to college out of state and sent me a Harajuku Hugs Panda recently in the mail dressed up as himself–long story, we call each other pandas. He sent it for Valentine’s day but he put its birthday as our anniversary date which is super cute. I would buy another Harajuku Hugs panda with the money and dress it up in a prom dress style outfit and would put his in a little tux and have them sit next to each other, and draw a picture for him and put it in their lap asking him to my senior prom the next time he comes home.

  8. My little brother found this bear and loved it. He has Autism and O.C.D so he has been constantly drawing pictures of it. He likes the way the eyes are so big. He is fascinated with the harajuku hugs panda. With the bear bucks I could get him one as a surprise.
