Nikkis bear

Nikki's Bear

The very first of Nikki's Bears to be released. Build-A-Bear Workshop created Nikki’s Bears to honor a young girl, Nikki Marie Giampolo, who unfortunately passed away at the age of 15 due to bone cancer. Nikki loved life, children and teddy bears. In her memory we dedicated this teddy bear to fund children’s health and wellness initiatives, including pediatric cancer, juvenile diabetes and autism research.
