Sugar Bear’s in White Sulphur Springs offers Buildable, Loveable, Take-Home Kits

Sugar Bear’s Toy Store is offering Take-Home Kits with animals of your choice! Ranging in price from $16 for an 8” animal to $22 for a 16” animal, these kits are a fun way for children to experience an instant connection with their new stuffed friend. Shop owner, Nicole Bostic, originally launched these kits around Christmas of 2019 and since the fear of Coronavirus, this activity has become increasingly popular with parents searching for fun activities with their children.

The kit includes an animal of your choice, a wishing heart, a vacuum pack of fluff, and adoption papers in a cute take-home box or paw print bag. Sometimes Nicole will add a ring pop or some sweet surprise to your kit. You can choose your own animal, clothes, smells, and sounds to complete your kit. BONUS: there is no sewing needed.

Took my niece for a girl’s day out and she had so much fun! Loved all the different options. Glad to have something like this so close to home and much more affordable! – Kelsey Sparks via

There are over 70 different animals to choose from including llamas, sloths, 6 different unicorns, foxes, pigs, cows, flamingos, black bears, cows, ducks, rams, koalas, kangaroos, dachshunds, huskies, pigs, bull dogs, dragons, bunnies and kitties. Kids love the idea of building their very own stuffed animal and making it uniquely theirs.

Nicole would also like to mention that her services are now mobile. She and her team will gladly come to your child’s party, vacation bible school, fundraising, company team building, or school projects.

Ordering kits is easy and they can be mailed to you or picked up. Most folks message Nicole through the store’s facebook page @sugarbearsofwv. You can also visit the website or call the store at 304-956-2503
