The Count Your Candles* promotion means that Bonus Club Members can bring their child to a store in their birthday month and they can get to make their own special Birthday Bear and just 'pay their age' for it, for example if they're turning five you pay just £5 for the bear. As well as the cut-price bear your child can get more extra treats when they collect their Birthday Treat Bear. They will get to pop in an extra special birthday heart, and have a birthday ceremony with a birthday hat and sticker, ring the birthday bell, get to take a picture with the birthday cake prop, and even have Happy Birthday sung to them.
