What happens at a typical Be My Bear Party?

The children are given their animal skin and a bag of super soft stuffing and begin the process of hand filling their new friend through a pocket opening in its back. They tease out the stuffing and can make their bear as fat or thin, as firm or soft as they like using the Be My Bear Cuddle Test. They then choose a star charm, make a special wish and place it inside the bear before sealing it with a one-way zipper closure and Velcro fastening. Then comes the naming ceremony filling in the birth certificate. The fun continues with a teddy bears picnic, T-shirt decorating and teddy bear party games.
