SANTA CLARA -- The interactive toy store Build-A-Bear Workshop will open a new store at Westfield Valley Fair on June 28.

The high-tech store will have stations where children and their parents can customize a toy bear with its own voice, style and name. Using touch-sensory technology and digital chips, customers can create toy bears that talk, play music and take baths.

St. Louis-based Build-A-Bear Workshop plans to open up to 25 new stores this year.
