A Build-A-Bear Birthday Surprise for ShellieMay

“It worked Little Joe!!!”

Me and Little Joe ordered something special for ShellieMay’s birthday from Build-A-Bear Workshop.

The only problem, ……. is…….. that,…….. well…. we messed up and ordered it too late — (Like too many days late after her birthday….Shsssssh)

But it’s here now!

The white plastic package decorated with royal blue build-a-bear heads is outside the front door

“It’s here Little Joe! The package from Build-A-Bear with ShellieMay’s outfits just got dropped off by the Post Office Mailman Lady!”


The very beary special ShellieMay Birthday surprise package from Build-A-Bear Workshop is here now!

ShellieMay loves clothes – no, yous guys, bear-specifically yous guys Duffy the Disney Bears guys, without a ShellieMay in the family – may not get it….

When I say that ShellieMay loves clothes, I mean that…..

ShellieMay LOVES Clothes !!!!!

Duffy is holding the Buid-a-Bear package waiting for Little Joe to help him bring it inside.

“Hurry up outside Little Joe and help me please! “


Clothes and Fashion, Fashion and Clothes, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!

Yet, to tell you the truth – I don’t see any difference – Clothes are clothes! Dufferdangers!


Clothes are clothes!

You wear ’em, you get ’em dirty, ShellieMay or mommy washes them (at least I do my best to get out of my laundry chores….) – then you wear them again!

Yet, ShellieMay keeps telling me that there is a huge-a-normous difference between clothes and fashion.

Well, actually ShellieMay would say, “Duffy, there is a very significant difference between ‘just clothes’ and fashion.” Then she goes on and on explaining the difference. Only I never hear what she is saying because my mind in on other super more important Duffy the Disney Bear stuff or food.

Little Joe is climbing up the table where Duffy is sitting holding the package

Hummmmm… I wonder what’s taking Little Joe so long to get outside?”


So far so good, ShellieMay hasn’t notice that my mind wanders off somewhere over and over again, because she gets all happy and excited when she talks about fashion. She’s usually running off into her closet and drawers putting on all kinds of outfits ‘comparing and contrasting them’ as she would say, to the clothes I wear so she can prove to me that there is a difference between ‘just clothes’ and fashion.

The only problem is that Little Joe gets really mad at me because she always asks him to help her with the fashion demonstrations.

Little Joe just adores Shellie May and he can just never say no to her.

Me and Little Joe are having super fun getting ShellieMay’s fashionesta dufferduper-O-spectacular-E-O Build-A-Bear present ready for her. We are even going to surprise mommy that we are surprising ShellieMay!

We ordered everything from the Build-a-Bear Workshop site after we gots an email that said there was a sale! Mommy love sales – not so sure ShellieMay will appreciate that we only remember her birthday after it was long over and only bought her the sale stuff.

But honest – we got her more stuff that way!

Or I guess I should say…. we got ShellieMay even more fashion outfits that way.”

Little Joe finally makes to the top of the table and is reaching for the package

“Here I am Duffy!”


Me and Little Joe watched mommy use this special plastic card over and over again for stuff. So we borrowed it to get ShellieMay’s stuff.

I guess this will be a very beary special surprise for mommy and ShellieMay!

ShellieMay gets lots of new Build-A-Bear fashion outfits …..

……and mommy can see that me and Little Joe are getting very beary independent and can use the plastic card now too!

Now the really, really, really hard part….. How do we make a birthday surprise for ShellieMay over two weeks past her birthday?????

Just a clothes wearing bear,
