Operation: Patient Teddy
Play a little game of stitch-me-up as you and your kiddo patches Teddy back to together. All they need are a few band-aids and a hygiene mask for a fun hospital role play.

If your Teddy and your babe can share clothes, let them! Some of our favorite costumes for teddy bears are the clothes we’ve seen on our little ones. Pretty soon your kiddo will grow out of them, but teddy never will.

Star Wars Teddy
Any costume list would seem incomplete without a Star Wars outfit. This Darth Vader bear is a popular costume at Build-A-Bear, but you could also probably dress up your furry friend in a robe to look like a Jedi.

Occupation: Teddy
We’re not sure if this outfit is a school boy, post man or old school police officer, but the matching components, from the hat to the pants, are beyond cute. Our favorite feature? The name tag that reads “Teddy.”
