Product Description

The Build-A-Bear Workshop game will give young gamers the chance nto virtually personalize a furry friend of their liking, name, brush and care for it and buy virtual clothes and accessories to unlock mini-games. Building off of the success of 300+ Build-A-Bear Workshop stores worldwide, The Game Factory will give gamers a chance to fully interact with their furry friend just like a guest in the real-world store. Set in a Build-A-Bear Workshop store, players will choose, stuff, stitch, dress, name and play with their 3D teddy bear. Twenty different themed mini-games can be unlocked as players win virtual money to buy additional accessories and clothes along the way. Developed by game developer Neko Entertainment the characters and levels in the Build-A-Bear Workshop Game will be rendered in 3D and a player's choice of stuffed animal, outfits and accessories will trigger a variety of animations and behaviors. Neko will also incorporate full interaction between the player and his/her furry friend to unlock mini-games that will take full advantage of the 3D, touch screen and microphone capabilities of the Nintendo DS(TM) system. The game will also feature a Wi-fi multiplayer game mode.

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 Bear's 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!

Only for little kids
10 years ago
I think this game is only for kids between the ages of 5 and 7. The storyline is you go to build-a-bear workshop and pick out of about 10 real animals that you could just go and pick up at an actual store. You take your animal home and you dress it, cook, play, and dance. All you do is play these games over and over again to unlock other things of the exact same concept until everything is unlocked and you are bored. You will probably reach this point in less than a week unless you only play like 10 minutes a day. Build-a-bearville is a lot more fun and it's free when you buy a build-a-bear. Overall it is childish, repetitive, and build-a-bearville is more fun, and if you want this game, you probably own a build-a-bear, so it's free and you don't have to waste your money on this.

Too cute
11 years ago
Bought this for myself and was enjoying pretty good. The mini games are easy and fun. Good to teach a child/children hand eye co-ordination and some reasoning skills. The music is a bit annoying, but then I play most of my games without sound anyway. I think the music would appeal to a child who plays the game. The graphics are like a little cartoon and the colors are very bright. It's easy to manuver with the stylus. My 3 year old granddaughter loves this so much I let her have it. She can spend an hour or so just changing the clothes on our kitty "Cuppycake" we chose. You can choose a boy pet or a girl pet so it would be a game for either sex. It is definetly a game for kids AND for kids who don't require a lot of action....or for a Nana like me who doesn't require a lot of action. I lose interest in games pretty quickly if they are too repetitive but this one held me for awhile. I think this game is mostly for smaller children and they would get a lot of enjoyment out of it. I would recommend it to other parents/'grandparents as a gift idea.
