Mom Who Planned "Cruelest Birthday Party" at Build-A-Bear Doesn't Think She Was Wrong


A mom on Reddit wrote about a weird children's birthday party she attended that was going perfectly fine until the mom in charge made a decision that left a bunch of kids utterly devastated.

There are fewer things more magical for kids than going to a birthday party. You have free license to run around and be as silly and crazy as you want. All the junk food your parents keep you away from are all available to you.

Sometimes they're low-key gatherings at friends' houses. Sometimes, they're huge extravaganzas at a local theme park or miniature golf course or bowling alley. Wherever it is, it's almost always an awesome time for everyone involved. Often it's enough just to be with all of your friends and family.

For the kids who attended this birthday party, however, it sounded like a pretty awesome event at first.

The kiddos were told that they would be having a party at the Build-a-Bear Workshop, which is a dream come true for any child. You get to customize your stuffed animal exactly how you want it. 

They all went to the mall and, before heading into Build-a-Bear, got themselves some pizza at the food court.
