Get ready for the total Build-A-Bear experience on Nintendo DS™! Make your own Build-A-Bear, dress it up, play with it in lots of funny activities and mini games! The Bear will be like a virtual extension of yourself and a personal companion you can love like a best friend. You must make sure you satisfy its daily needs as physical affection, fun, food, learning, social life and trendyness are all necessary elements for the Bear to be balanced and happy. A highly interactive and trans-generational game in the true Build-A-Bear spirit! Create and customise your very own Bear in the Workshop-part of the game. Here you get to pick out the Bear you want, choose a motto, stuff it, insert its special heart and whisper a secret into its ear. Next you stitch it together, fluff it, name it, dress it and take it home to its special house that you get to colour for it. There are 8 different Bear characters you can customise: Dimples Teddy, Mocha Bunny, Pink Poodle, Playfull Puppy, Velvet Teddy, Friendly Frog, Marvelous Monkey, Sassy Kitty. Build-A-Bear for Nintendo DS™ is a new, fun kind of relationship simulation game, which takes into account the Bears evolution as much as the players fun factor. The Build-A-Bear characters, graphical universe and lifestyles are respectfully adapted and enhanced by this new addition: the Virtual Bear, an extension of every Build-A-Bear fan around the world!
