I'm looking giving a voucher for 'Build a Bear' to my 6 y.old niece for her birthday - any advice on how much is a decent amount to get? I know you can go quite overboard with the 'extras' but would $50 be enough for her to get a bear and some clothes?

I think most bears are about $50. I would think $70 would cover a bear and clothes? Or near enough.

Most of the nicer bears are from around $40, it's the clothes that are really expensive!  I'd probably go $60 if you can afford it.

Maybe see if someone else can get her a voucher too? Another aunty/uncle/grandparent? 2 $50 vouchers will get her a nice bear and a few other bits and pieces.

I think you need at least $100 for a good build a bear and some accessories.

Like the PP maybe see if another relative needs an idea and they could get a voucher too.

My girls were given $50 each from Grandma for their birthday.

I think they each needed to add about $5 for a bear plus an outfit.

The cheapest bears are around $17 I think, so you can easily manage a bear with outfit for $50.

Yes, the 'special' bears are more, but you can get a simple teddy and dress it to the nines for that budget.

I took DD a year or so ago and she got a $15 bear (her choice), dressing gown and slippers, shorts and tee set all from Build a Bear shop, then we went to Target and got a few onesies in the right size (yep, we tried them on the bear to make sure!).

All up we spent $50, so yes, very doable.

Most bears are around $25-30, tops and skirts are about $5-10 each, dresses are $10-15.

I can get a dressed bear with an accessory for $50

I haven’t looked at it, but one of my friends posted that groupon has a $30 voucher for $15. Can get more than one but can’t use more than one at a time (she is going to use them for outfits- just buy one at a time).
Hopefully this helps someone!

I recently bought a rainbow bear for my grand daughter.
Bear plus undies, skirt, t-shirt, shoes and back pack was $130.
Very expensive.

I've taken my three girls in there and each walked out with one (plainer) bear and one accessory- I spent $99 in total.

DD wants to take a friend there instead of a party this year, and I've promised they can pretty much have free reign in terms of bear choice, heart beats, scents, outfit...I'm expecting it to be just a little bit more than $99 ;)

$50 would definitely be enough for a bear and some clothes.
