Build-A-Bear's Cool Cats & Hot Dogs Are Big Summer Fun
our kids may have had big laughs last summer dressing the dog in a bikini or putting a lei around your cat's neck – and we can bet your furry pal wasn't impressed.

This summer, there's a way to play dress up with nary a bark or hiss from the cat or dog: Build-A-Bear's Cool Cats & Hot Dogs collection, a new line of stuffed animals that are all adorably accessorized for the dog days of summer.

Purr-fect for your little cat-lover, the Pool Party Tabby ($45) dons a fruity tutu bikini, fuchsia jellies on her feet, and holds a coordinating beach bag. For the troublemaker who's tried to teach the dog to rollerskate, the Rockin' Roller Skater Border Collie ($61.50) comes complete with a tutu and glitter wheels.

The plush pets (available in stores and online) can even play songs, like the Jonas Brothers' "Lovebug" ($4) or Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out" ($6), keeping your kids entertained – and the real dogs and cats unadorned. If your pets could speak, you know they'd say, "Thank You."
