LOS ANGELES - Build-A-Bear doesn't need to help you build a relationship with your teddy bear!
Build-A-Bear conducted a study that found 4 in 10 adults still sleep with a teddy bear at night, and 72% of these adults want to keep their bear around forever. More than half the people interviewed have owned their teddy bear for over 20 years.
Naturally, Build-A-Bear was quite happy with the results. CEO Sharon Price John said:
"At Build-A-Bear, we believe wholeheartedly that you're never too old for a teddy bear, and we love that more than 25 percent of Build-A-Bear shoppers are 12 and older."
You're not sleeping alone if you've got a teddy bear!
