  • Build-a-Bear poor management at Ocean County Mall

    My daughter has gone on a interview here, it went well was told she would be called back for 2nd interview. She was never called and after she called was scheduled to come back. Went back and was called a few days later she had the job. Days go by, nothing. My daughter calls back again to be told someone called her about when she can work. No one ever called my daughter or left a message. Faith, the manager at this location is not doing her job very well. How do you tell someone they have a job and then nothing? I would not have anyone I know go there looking for a job, very... More...

  • Worst online experience I have ever had

    The online tracker doesn't work for shipping. The lost my original order for Xmas. I reorder and can't track it. I call in and they are not answering anymore calls during the week before Xmas. They are only corresponding by emails. I email them and they say they will respond in 3 business days. When I tried to purchase online, the cart kept loading but wouldn't give shipping, after 2 hours finally happened and now I have a tracking number but there is absolutely no way to track it. Website and customer service for web purchases is the worst I have ever seen. More...

  • Poor Online and Customer Service FFFFFF

    I am extremely disappointed with the online service, it took me an hour to get the order placed, then FEDEX ended up returning the package back to Build A Bear because there was no address printed on the label, only city name. I called customer service and after 65 minutes wait the representative tells me this is an isolated case and that she can offer me a refund! Seriously??? This is a present my daughter put on the Santa Claus list and we are traveling and would like to have the present on our destination during Christmas. More...

  • Hole in my little pony teddy bear.

    After spending the day in London with my daughter, I decided to treat her to a build a bear in Hamleys, Regent Street. After spending nearly £70 on the bear and accessories, on the way home we discovered there was a hole in the front leg of the teddy!!! Seeing as the nearest build a bear is 2 hours from where we live I am unable to just return the bear at my next convenience. This was the second bear that we were given in the store as the first ones stitching wasn't correct and seeing as my daughter has developmental delay, this caused her distress from the waiting around and now...

  • Horrible Online Shipping

    I ordered a single bear online from Build-A-Bear on December 17, 2014, hoping to get it in time for a Christmas gift and by January 1st I still didn't get it! I sent an email to customer service and they said the order wasn't even placed when I already paid for it. They resent it and I ended up getting it on January 16, 2015. That's almost a whole month later!! I would never order anything from Build-A-Bear online ever again. Horrible online shopping experience. More...

  • Build-a-Bear customer service

    Worst online shopping experience I have encountered so far. I tried to order a gift for my sister's birthday as she is in the Navy and I do not get to see her to deliver it myself. I never got a confirmation email and was not told that my it couldn't be sent because of the address. I then had to call wondering why she hadn't received it after a month to find out I was getting refunded and the gift returned, but when I looked at my bank account I didn't see a refund. I then proceeded to call again only to find out it takes 7-10 business days. I think this company needs to... More...

  • Build a Bear at Trumbull Mall

    Absolutley disgusted by how I was misled by the worker named Jasmine at the Trumbull Mall in CT Build a Bear store. I specifically asked her if I can use a $12 off coupon that clearly I did not have because the last time I received a email from them was back in 2013, so I said could I use the same one my friend has, she said yes so I told my daughter to make the bear, long story short what she told me was far from the truth and the manager was of no help because all she kept saying was there must have been a misunderstanding. I would have NEVER had my daughter build the bear otherwise... More...

  • Build a bear birmingham bullring - appalling

    absolutely disgusted by the fairy minded folk that work in that place. they have no ideas of prices and the customer service is appalling! when asked for a simple answer we had to get the manager to try to resolve the problem. after the manager can along she was disgustingly rude, and totally up herself. arguing in front of the children and parents in the shop, after realising she was completely in the wrong and storming off in a tantrum finally she attempted to sort problem in which it then took another 20min for one of them to work the till?????? the reason the mistake had been made is...

  • Cheap trick in making me buy sound song for reindeer

    My daughter got Clarise the Reindeer and the Bear builder asked my daughter if she'd like the sound song, but didn't tell me the cost would be $7.50 additional. When I get to the register, she said, 'I can always take it out', but my daughter had already had the sound in her new reindeer and I wasn't gonna break her heart at this point. It was a cheap trick. Also, in front of the reindeer only listed the reindeer price, which I presumed came with the sound. I wasn't told anything until I get to the front to pay. More...

  • no heart

    I went to the branch in Cambridge with my daughter who has special needs for her 21st birthday to purchase a bear, the young girl stuffing my daughter's bear didn't talk much and never offered the heart with which you make your special wish, so my daughters bear went without. And when I got to the checkout I gave the young man the money off voucher we had, which he acknowledged but when I checked the till receipt later found he did not use. We found the whole visit to buildabear that day a let down compared too previous experiences. More...

  • Manager with Horrible Customer Service

    I took my daughter to the Build a Bear in Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax, VA today. We walked in and there was a crowd of about 25 adults and children waiting at the stuffing station. I figured out it was because there was only 1 sales staff working the machine and about 5-6 other sales staff just walking around, not doing anything. I asked a sales girl if she could sit at the other end and work the stuffing machine so all the little kids wouldn't have to wait in the long line. Some of these kids were crying because they'd been waiting so long. The sales girl told me no she... More...

Brought ruldolph online for Christmas, his voice box is faulty have had it changed 3 times and needs changing again it only last about month now its June its hard to get it fixed as they don't stock the voice box after Christmas ( which they should stock ) my daughter has other bears they are fine the snowman still plays he was brought the year before the problem is the voice box it's faulty it needs to be stocked all year round plus his nose does not glow anymore. Every time I take him to be fixed I spend more money on clothes etc ruldolph was not cheap and everytime he needs. Fixing I wait till I'm paid because I spend a bomb plus parking too ruldolph is a expensive hobbie
