The Curious Bear 2nd Birthday Bash Celebration

Curious Bear 2nd Birthday Bash Celebration

Join us Nov. 14th - 22nd (Saturday through the following Sunday) for our 2nd Birthday Bash! Hard to believe it's already been TWO years since we opened!

Like everything in 2020, things will look bit different this year. No big party, no balloon artists, no candy and treats galore. 😭BUT... we will be celebrating with several BIG ways to say thank you! (see below) 🥳 ⁣

Our sales & gifts & giveaways are available to online and in-store shoppers, so we HIGHLY recommend that you shop online if you can. We have a 5 person capacity limit in each store, so we are anticipating longer lines during peak times!


* while supplies last - one per family

* Bear Bucks = store credit! Birthday Bash Bucks will expire on 12/4. Sign up ahead of time using the small widget in the bottom left hand corner of the website!



🌲 We will draw from daily orders every day for ONE lucky winner who will receive a surprise bag of FUN added to their order

🐻 Tag us in a story, post, review or recommendation before 11/22 and you'll be entered into a drawing for $100 Gift Card!
* We'd absolutely love it if you could post a video, story, photo, review or recommendation about why you love The Curious Bear! This could be an Instagram post or story, a Facebook recommendation, a Google or Yelp review. When we see it, we'll comment back and you can know you're entered! If you don't know if we saw it, definitely send us a note so we can make sure to enter you into the drawing!!

🌲 Bring in a donation for Snacks for Schools and be entered into ANOTHER drawing for $100 Gift Card! 
* See below for more info on Snacks for Schools and what donations would be most appreciated!

🐻 FREE festive gift wrapping & handwritten notes, as always⁣
* There is a gift wrap option check box on each product page if you order online!  Be sure to check off each item you would like wrapped and include a gift note if needed! If you shop in store and it is very busy, we may ask that you come back to pick up wrapped gifts a bit later in the day (or at a time convenient for you!)

And don't forget...we have wishlist and registry options available on the website, so have your kiddos create a list to share with friends and family so they get exactly what they want (and you support your favorite local toy store! Win-win!) They can choose free in-store/curbside pickup or flat rate shipping ($5 in WA, $9.95 outside). And...we'll do the wrapping for free!! 🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁

Have questions or want to learn more? DM, email, or call us if you have further questions!⁣

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your support this year. We've made it this far and it is all thanks to YOU, our amazing customers. 🎄🐻❤



Snacks for School

We are now an official drop-off/collection location for Snacks for Schools, a local volunteer group focused on providing snacks to students at Tacoma's highest need Public Schools.

The goals of Snacks for Schools is to:
1. Bring our community together in support of our teachers & students
2. Familiarize Tacoma residents with all of our schools and the unique programs they offer
3. Allow individuals to give when and how they can -- and know that those small donations make a BIG impact!
What kind of donations are needed?
- easy to prep, pop-top meals (chili or soup)
- tuna or canned chicken (pop top or pouch)
- peanut butter & jelly
- ramen cups
- mac'n'cheese cups
- trail mix
- dried fruits
- crackers
- cereal
- breakfast bars or granola bars
- oatmeal
- applesauce
- canned fruit or cups of fruit
- microwave popcorn
- beef jerky
- rice pouches or cups
- protein bars
- rice krispie treats 

They try to keep it healthy, easy to prepare, and something that will bring a smile to a kid's face! These bags are not replacing groceries, but hopefully making it easier for kids who may spending more time alone to keep their bellies full.
