As a father I've spent a lot of time in the Build a Bear workshop. Too much time. Every time, I'd grab a new piece. Then I let it all sit in a bag in my basement for a really long time. Then this fall I finally got around to pulling it out and putting it all together, finally. The sound chip that has a recorded voice clip from the cartoon's batteries are dead. Sewing the monocle and mount for the mustache on was the trickiest part, for sure. I dislike sewing, and I'm glad to just have this done.
