I read a lot of familiar books that celebrate the Christmas season with my children, and one of our all-time favorites is Dr. Seuss' classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The thought of cuddling up with our own Grinch from Build-A-Bear Workshop is sending my Christmas heart straight into Whoville territory. With soft green fur and the official "Dr. Seuss' The Grinch" movie logo on his paw pad, this Grinch is a fun way to relive the magic of Dr. Seuss' timeless story and associated films. You also have the ability to add sounds and outfits to a plush Grinch stuffed animal, or simply buy the Grinch accessories for a bear you already own. This online exclusive is sure to be a hit with any little tyke who loves the Grinch or is just being introduced to him for the first time. As the Build-A-Bear Workshop website states, "The Grinch might have invented the Naughty List, but he makes a perfect gift for anyone on the Nice List!"
During this hectic time of year, we can all use a reminder of the importance of Christmas and the holiday season. As Dr. Seuss demonstrated in The Grinch's plan and ultimate transformation, it's not the presents that matter, it's being with the people we love the most. While you might be a "mean one," Mr. Grinch, you're looking pretty cute now.
