Welcome to Crafty Monkey's Build a Bear workshops and children's birthday parties website.
If you are looking for a fun and unique child's birthday party that will be a wonderful, stress free success you have come to the right place!
Our Make a Bear Birthday parties offer everything you need to ensure a fun, hands on party activity that children of all ages will enjoy and remember for years to come.
Kids love the hands on fun of choosing their own teddy bear to stuff.
We bring all the fun and excitement of stuffing a teddy bear to you in a more relaxed and convenient location through workshops at Crafty Monkey studio in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire or we can come to a venue of your choice.
If you live out of the catchement area why not get a DIY kit? Full instructions are included.
Remember those goodie bags that were given to all the kids at the last birthday party are a thing of the past as each child will receive a teddy bear or animal along with a t-shirt and birth certificate. Your "goodie bag" will be the talk among the kids and parents.
We have Birthday Packages, which you can pick from or if you are looking for that unique birthday present for that special person, you can order just one make a bear kit, bear clothes and accessories.
It is up to you, but what ever you decide you will delight when you see the children’s faces once they have created their own special huggable friend.
