Bonkers Columbia, owned and operated by Family Entertainment Group, is thrilled to be expanding its offerings by adding a new Build-A-Bear Workshop® store.

Bonkers Columbia is known for entertaining families in Missouri and providing an exciting mix of games, prizes, food, and fun for the whole family.  The over-sized soft play area allows kids to climb, crawl and play all day.

With the addition of Build-A-Bear® our guests will now be able to participate in the signature Build-A-Bear Make-Your-Own experience, including the iconic Heart Ceremony, with an assortment of furry friends, accessories, and products that appeal to kids, teens, and adults alike.  The experience begins by choosing from a wide array of plush animals and then stuffing them with love with the assistance of a BEAR BUILDER® associate including participating in Build-A-Bear’s iconic Heart Ceremony. A wide range of clothing and accessories allows each new friend to be customized and unique

Build-A-Bear® is open for shopping every day and shares the same operational hours as Bonkers.

Bonkers hosts birthday parties and special groups and in 2022, was voted “Most Loved Birthday Parties” in Columbia. For large or small parties, their Birthday Party Specialists take pride in ensuring that every aspect of the party is presented perfectly. Bonkers will still offer their traditional birthday party packages but will now offer Build-A-Bear® parties as well.
