Some Assembly Required


Some Assembly Required
features six Build-A-Bear Workshop Core Values that represent the most important ideals we can ever hope to teach a child:

Hands-on challenges – highlighting design, mechanics, building, self-expression and communications – underscore the importance of shaping a child’s lifelong values while developing their imagination, resourcefulness and critical-thinking skills. The exhibit features three central components and three activity stations that apply STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts/design and math) concepts, inspiring children to be curious and to invent, tinker and solve problems while helping parents/caregivers recognize that children, too, require some assembly and that adults must set the example and guide a child’s understanding of the principles that ultimately define who we are and what we believe. Some Assembly Required helps children recognize how the things we create, including our values, impact ourselves, our families, our communities, and our planet.

The exhibit offers a flexible 1,200 square feet layout and features more than a dozen creative experiences including; storytelling, coding/logic, construction, engineering, music, visual communications, design, community, and self-expression:

Some Assembly Required fosters a child’s development of key social and emotional skills while engaging families and groups in fun and challenging activities that inspire children to be curious, collaborative, considerate, and creative.
