I've been collecting Build-A-Bears since 2021 when I got Sir Avery Farticus in store; I previously wasn't a fan of Build-a-Bears and would only get a bear based on my favorite characters (Piplup and Twilight), but after discovering finding the joy of build-a-bear during the pandemic, I grew a newfound appreciation for the silly critters.
I currently have 29 Build-a-Bears as of June 3rd, 2022. Some are either customized and/or have sensory additions such as weight, scents or adjusted textures.
I would consider myself a hobbyist collector, as I can only afford bears when I get extra money. I no longer have a focus on the type of bears I purchase, and buy depending if they make my heart happy.
My first ever Build-A-Bear was my Brown Sugar Pup named Fluffy. I got her when I was around 7 or 8 years old. My mother got her for me.
