Build-A-Bear Harajuku Hugs Panda Review

by Wren on January 18, 2013


I was lucky enough to have a chance to review the Harajuku Hugs Panda! It has large eyes with heart shaped black spots around them. I think it makes it extra adorable. Then it has pink cheeks and gives it that feel that it is really a happy panda! Which why would this panda NOT be happy? It gets to be my little girl’s panda! Yes I may be a tad bias, but my daughter is very much in love with her. She has spent the past three days attached to my daughters hip and even at this exact moment she is sitting with her while she plays some games in the living room. They make a great team already.

Build-A-Bear Workshop and Harajuku Lovers have launched “Harajuku Hugs”, an exclusive line of fashions in partnership with Harajuku Lovers. In 2005, music and fashion icon Gwen Stefani launched Harajuku Lovers- A brand that includes apparel, accessories, and stationary that reflects Gwen’s love of Japanese Culture and pop art. The much anticipated Build-A-Bear Workshop Harajuku Hugs Panda and first installment of bear-sized apparel will debut to the public in the Build-A-Bear Workshop’s Valentine’s Day mailer and be available starting January 18 in stores in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom and online at

“I’m so excited to share the Harajuku Hugs line with everyone. This is the first time we’ve had the apparel available for stuffed animals and I hope all of the fashion loving kids out there have so much fun mixing and matching all the different styles on their Harajuku Hugs Panda.” ~Gwen Stefani

The Harajuku Hugs Panda I received came with a Harajuku Hugs Heart Dress, Harajuku Hugs Panties, Black Patent Bow Heels, & Black Bow Headband. My daughters face lite up when she saw her and has been toting her around ever since. It has taken up a new place next to her in bed. She has also been named Pandy, I find it very adorable and I can see by the twinkle in her eye we will be going to Build-A-Bear soon to get more Harajuku Hugs apparel. I really thought the Harajuku Hugs Panties were very adorable, it matched the dress perfectly!

The Harajuku Hugs items are extremely cute. You can check them out HERE! I love the hoodie! Just so adorable and all of the items would look cute not only on Harajuku Hugs Panda, but any of your child’s Build-A-Bear friends!
