Build-A-Bear Gets on the Girl Scout Train With Cookie-Scented Bears

There are many things that signal the close of a long, cold winter – Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter – but for some, nothing says summer is coming like the sight of little girls in green uniforms, boxes of cookies stacked behind them.

Everyone loves Girl Scout cookie time, right?


I mean, maybe not people who have sworn off sugar for one reason or another, but yeah. Everyone else.

Even Build-A-Bear, it turns out, who is offering a delicious Girl Scout cookie scent for some of the special bears you can make in their stores (or buy online).


The toy giant is releasing two limited-edition bears, complete with matching scents: The Coconut Caramel Cookie Bear, and the Thin Mint Bear.

The Coconut Caramel Cookie Bear “makes a sweet addition to any collection. With swirly coconut caramel fur and a fun doodle print on the ears and paw pads, this brown teddy bear is the perfect companion for learning and growing as a Girl Scout.”

The Thin Mint bear has similar decorations and doodles, but is mint-colored (of course).


Each bear comes with cookie-shaped wristlets and the actual scent of the cookie added to its fur – or even a Girl Scout uniform – but all of those “add-ons” are going to cost you.

Parents are aware of this, I’m sure.

The basic bears sell for $22, and man, if you’ve got a Girl Scout troop, I can’t think of a better bonding experience!

If you’re a lover of either kind of cookie, I also can’t think of a better way to keep the Girl Scout cookie adoration alive in your house all year long.


Between the Cousin Eddie Bear at Christmas and the Baby Yoda bear that’s coming soon, Build-A-Bear is really on a roll this year, don’t you think?

My kids are still too little, so maybe Mommy and Daddy will have to do a date night outing for some cookie-scented bears of our own. Heh.

But hey, what do you think? Want to grab one of these?
