“UNSTUFFED: A BUILD-A-BEAR STORY”

Build-A-Bear Entertainment releases today a new feature film, Unstuffed: A Build-A-Bear Story, directed by renowned documentarian, Taylor Morden (The Last Blockbuster). This clever and surprising mixed-media documentary examines the "why" behind Build-A-Bear Workshop's ability to remain relevant through the decades by focusing on its mission of 'adding a little more heart to life' -- one teddy bear at a time. The movie authentically explores the "inside stuff" through celebrity and corporate interviews, as Build-A-Bear's remarkable tale is revealed. It starts with the entrepreneurial inspiration and fad-like success in the late 1990's, to the tumultuous repercussions of the economic downturns and the global pandemic that ultimately required the company, founded as a mall-based retailer, to evolve while never losing its "heart" to survive.
