One more reason to make a visit to the mall in Mumbai.

I love making creative stuff toys. I have made many stuff toys that included Indian dolls too. I would draw a figure and cut the shape, stitch and stuff. Now I will be able to do that with my friends who are too lazy to do it themselves.

The global Build-A-Bear Workshop’ global retail chain. is all set to roll into this country, with its first store coming up in Mumbai at the PVR Complex, Juhu, followed by an outlet at In Orbit Mall, Malad in association with Shopper’s Stop, Currently, the format will be a Build-A-Bear section on the kids' floor of Shopper's Stop stores, which plans to expand Build-A-Bear across India in phases. Industry sources reveal Build-A-Bear boutique stores will come up at a later stage.

Now I will have one more reason to make a visit to the mall in Mumbai.

It is learnt that Murjani Group is planning to launch 50 to 100 Build-A-Bear stores in India in the next couple of years. The Murjani Group, which has brought in other international icons like Gloria Vanderbilt, Tommy Hilfiger FCUK, is helping launch this US-based retail chain here. The Group’s brands account for retail sales over $5 billion.

Murjani Group officials could not be reached for comment.

India is the 14th country to join the Build-A-Bear Workshop(R) international franchisee program.

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
