A Baby Blizzard Bear is a baby polar bear battle pet, which was sent to all World of Warcraft players who logged into the game on November 23, 2008 to celebrate . It is likely that a polar bear was chosen to also celebrate WoW's foray into the live Wrath of the Lich King content.
Those who signed on during the anniversary received an in-game mail from The WoW Dev Team:
Did you know that the World of Warcraft is now four years old?
We wanted to send you something to say thanks for sharing this game with us. Sure, the 4th anniversary present is traditionally "flowers"... but in WoW, it's "bear".
With that said, please accept this furry little friend! Just remember to hold his fish by the tail, not the body... that mouth is bigger than it looks.

Many players incorrectly use the term BoA instead of BtA to match BoP and BoE. Sometimes any Bind to Account items are referred to as "heirlooms" even though they are not technically the same (they usually don't scale, unlike true heirlooms).
"BoAs" as many people call them can be bought from many rep. vendors, including bought from points in Dalaran and Honor points in Wintergrasp
Mailing items Edit
As of Patch 5.4.2, account-bound items can be mailed to characters on the same account, even on different realms and across factions. You simply type the character's name then a "-" followed by the realm the character is on. Some naming rules apply for realm names, since they can have spaces and apostrophes, unlike characters names.
As of Patch 4.1, account-bound items can be mailed from characters attached to different World of Warcraft accounts if they are under the same Battle.net account and on the same realm. Also, faction-specific items will be translated to the faction equivalent, if changing factions.
Starting with Wrath of the Lich King, account-bound items can be mailed to any character that shares the same account and server. Since Patch 3.3.0, account-bound items can be mailed to characters of opposing faction.
