Connecticut Boy Builds His Perfect Wish

Jayden collects stuffed animals and loves robots. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, dreamed up a wish to bring a smile to Jayden’s face.

Kids Wish Network gave him a memorable Build-A-Bear experience, purchasing him a generous gift card to Build-A-Bear Workshop, where he could personalize and buy individual outfits for his new friends. The store graciously opened early for Jayden, so he would receive personalized attention. He had a creative time choosing outfits and accessories for his bountiful assortment of stuffed animals.

Jayden also received a generous gift card to Walmart so he could pick out his perfect robot and other things on his wish list. Dave & Buster’s also provided lunch and game cards for Jayden and his family.

“We’re glad to give Jayden a wish that expands his collection and ongoing happiness,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.

Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for making Jayden’s dreams become a reality:

  • Build-A-Bear Workshop
  • Dave & Buster’s Providence
