"Build a Bear" for the Pope MyFoxNy.com. March 25, 2008:
The Build-A-Bear Workshop chain has pumped out a new bear complete with a special edition T-shirt honoring the Pope's visit to the United States.
The Vatican has sanctioned the T-shirt for the adorable, stuffed animals but only for stores in Washington, DC and on BuildABear.com.
The shirts cost $6 online.
For the entire Build-A-Bear "Pope" experience you'll have to visit Washington. A company representative says they're trying to work with the Vatican to allow the bears to be sold in stores in New York and other areas.
