Build-A-Bear Workshop was born from an idea founder, Maxine Clark and her friend Katie - who was 10 years old at the time - had when they were out shopping for stuffed toys. When they couldn't find the stuffed toy Katie wanted, she said, "These are so easy, we could make them." She meant do a craft project, but what Maxine heard was so much bigger.The first store opened in 1997 at the Saint Louis Galleria in St. Louis, Missouri. Today there are over 400 stores worldwide and over 125 million furry friends adventuring around the globe!
