Converging Toys, Part II (*Updated*)

{Update: It’s great to see an entry like the one I came across on Kim Pallister’s blog yesterday (Link). I’d learned about Build-A-Bear Workshop sometime last Summer iirc [Note: as I thought… on Raph Koster’s blog – Link], and my thoughts then were very much the same as what he details in his post, and pretty much follow the kinds of things I’ve been discussing here in other entries.

To be honest though, I’d forgotten about the Build-A-Bear store. Not
too surprising. It’s not like I want to go this route. I’d rather
custom build/mod the things virtually and fab the tangibles custom. Starting with the virtual eliminates the brick & mortar, after all.}
