Today, I work at a teddy bear shop where we build custom stuffed teddy bears for people. This morning a little girl came in to make a bear for her dad who was leaving to head overseas with the Marine Corps for 11 months. When it came time to put the little heart patch on the bear (something every bear we make has), the girl asked to use my scissors. She wanted to cut the heart in half so as to put half on her dad's bear and keep the other half for herself to remember him by. When I saw the half heart sitting in the little girl’s hand it MMT.

Why can't you say you work at Build-A-Bear? It's obvious.

@purplerosesbeauty, there are actually quite a few different companies that build custom teddy bears. Build-A-Bear is far from the only possibility. OP, glad you got to interact with such a thoughtful little girl.

Build-A-Bear is the only one with the heart patch as far as I know. It's probably just Build-A-Bear.
