Build-A-Bear Workshop Nintendo Bound

Activision has announced that two Build-A-Bear Workshop titles will be arriving to Nintendo’s systems in under two weeks. The titles are Build-A-Bear Workshop: Friendship Valley for Wii, and Build-A-Bear Workshop: Welcome to Hugsville for DS. We don’t know what game of the year 2010 is just yet, but cutest titles of the year will definitely be going to these two.

Both games will be available March 23, 2010. The Friendship Valley promises players with the choice of 13 characters to become their friend, and to decorate their “Cub Condo.” Very cool. You can also participate in various mini-games and meet new friends. Welcome to Hugsville will resemble more of the real life Build-A-Bear experience, as players will create their new friend. Afterward, players can play through 8 mini-games, some of which allow them to construct their “Cub Condo,” or build their own vehicle.

“Visiting a real life Build-A-Bear Workshop store is great fun for any family,” said David Oxford at Activision Publishing. “We want to bring this world to life on Wii™ and Nintendo DS™, building on the elements that made the brand so popular.”

“We are pleased to be working with Activision to introduce these exciting games for Build-A-Bear Workshop and Nintendo fans,” said Maxine Clark, founder and chief executive bear of Build-A-Bear Workshop. “Build-A-Bear Workshop: Welcome to Hugsville and Build-A-Bear Workshop: Friendship Valley encourage friendship and creativity while allowing families to share in the Build-A-Bear Workshop experience from home.”

Now can someone explain to me what a “Cub Condo” is? It is better than a regular condo?
