Kiosks in the Ridemakerz store in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Ridemakerz, a build-it-yourself toy car store, opened their first store in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Ridemakerz is being financially backed by Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc. and allows customers to build custom designed toy cars.
 
As part of the "Ride-building" process, customers have access to a kiosk called the Personalized Station, where each car's information can be uploaded to a "My Garage" section of the Ridemakerz website and shared with friends. The kiosk software was developed by Nanonation and is on the same platform as the software in Build-A-Bear in-store kiosks.
 
"The kiosk allows customers to extend their experience on to the Web," said Dave Watkins, developbear supbearvisor for Build-A-Bear Inc. "They can get a title for their Ride, create a custom license plate and have a way to share the Ride with their friends."
 
Ridemakerz is receiving $3 million in investments and $15 million in back-office support from Build-A-Bear Inc. Build-A-Bear is also providing the IT infrastructure, Watkins said.
