34th Street


Build-A-Bear Now Open

Just in time for Christmas, America's favorite teddy bear emporium returns to 34th Street.


Here’s big news for parents looking for great gift ideas for their little ones: Build-A-Bear is now open on 34th Street, with a new store that combines the classic features that make Build-A-Bear special with a new design and an overall brighter interior incorporating NYC signage and graphics.

The store’s signature “stuffer” is prominently located in the center of the action. The store is stocked with superhero and NYC-themed accessories and also features an “inspiration wall” displaying trends and fashions.

This is the company's only permanent store in Manhattan, and we are are thrilled to welcome it to the neighborhood. The new store is located at 22 West 34th Street, just west of the Empire State Building. Operating hours are 10am–9pm, Monday - Saturday and 10am–7pm on Sunday.
