Yes, build a bear. Where you can take your child/loved one, and spend $100 on a stuffed teddy bear that can be dressed as:
- A Fireman
- A Nurse
- An Astronaut
- A Mormon Missionary
- A --
|Yes, you heard right.|
Exclusively at the Salt Lake City build-a-bear, you can get a Mormon Missionary outfit for your stuffed animal. This includes the signature white shirt and tie, some STUNNING shorts, a name badge, and the Book of Mormon.
No, folks, this is not a joke.

Sadly, this is not on the b-a-b website, and it's hard to find on eBay. Why only SLC? Well, people were requesting it, and SLC is the Mormon hub of the world. So there we go.
I wonder if you can make a Build-a-Pope-Bear in Vatican City?
Or maybe Build-a-Buddha-Bear in Asia?
I'm not sure. If you know of any other religious teddies, please post below (Looking for Jerusalem Jew-Bears with a yarmulke and the Torah...)
As you've probably gathered from previous blog posts, I'm not LDS. But I WANT ONE OF THESE! Why? I mean, c'mon. A Mormon missionary teddy bear in the middle of Mormonville? This is priceless.
