Collection of Bears
I elected to do my report on my collection of bears. I pick bears for my theme because it is something that is
important to me and makes me happy.
In the world we live in a lot of people collect difference items. Ever person may have different reasons why they
collect the different items. When people think of items to collect some people may collect items that may make
them money or they can collect items that can make them happy.
How I started my collection of bears was when I was a little girl I broke my arm, and my mom brought me a bear.
Once I received my first bear every time we went some were and I seen one I wanted to be a new bear. So over the
years my collection of bears keep getting bigger. Some bears I buy on my own, or sometimes I get them as gifts.
Some days I just like to look at my bears, because it makes me happy to see the bears smiling. What has made me
a very happy person is when they opened up a Build A Bear shop here in Austin. At Build A Bear you get to build
your own bear. The first step it to pick the bear that you want. Second you go to get the bear stuffed. You get to
decide how you want the bear to feel. Do you want the bear to be hard, soft, or in between. The third step is after
you get the bear stuff you put a heart inside of it. At this time you can also decide if you want the bear to talk or
make noise. After that is done the bear to ready to get clean. The fourth step is to pick out cloths and shoes that
you want the bear to wear. The fifth step is two go to the computer and type out the birth certificate for your bear.
The sixth and final step is to pay for your bear and then it is put in a bear house for you to take it home with you.
I hope you like my collection of bear you will be seeing. I know that if you collect items that are special to
you, you know how I feel about my collection. If you don’t collect anything you should start collecting a item that
will make you happy.
