113 (32) Build-A-Bear Workshop

Teddy was always there. Never too busy for a cuddle. Whilst he maybe lost to you in the wilds of time past there's no reason you can't recreate him.

Stuff it, inject some animal into your life. You can justify this, if you feel you have to, as you made a unique present for your cousin or nephew or your friends daughter's nephew and if you never get around to parting company with cuddles, well stuff happens.

You can personalize your Teddy with hundreds of bits of stuff that the proudest bear would be seen stuffed of. Utilize your creative side and dare to stuff a Teddy into your life (or someone else's, just make sure it is a good home)



114 (61) Trump Tower

Glitz personified. Trump Tower stands as a monument to riches and ego of developer Donald Trump. The Trump Tower atrium is just amazing. The Tower defies the belief that you can have 'more money than you can spend' or perhaps proves it. Visit and decide for yourself. As you would expect the cafes and shops could be described as 'exclusive' so be prepared for an expensive coffee break if required.
