How To Get The Best Build-a-Bear Offers

If your child is a fan of Build-a-Bear you'll know that the costs can soon mount up, especially when they start collecting outfits and accessories as well as the bears. Here's our guide to help you get the best deals at Build-a-Bear, including sales, special offers, member offers and lots more.

Current Build-a-Bear Offers

Count Your Candles: Pay Your Age

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.

In Store Events

Costco* are selling £100 (4 x £25 cards) worth of Build-a-Bear e-gift cards* for £79.99, so you're saving yourself 20%. If you aren't a Costco member then you will incur a 4% charge which will make your total purchase £72.79.

    It means any teddy, whether it's an actual bear, or the horses, bunnies, reindeer etc. I think they just use 'furry friends' as they do so much more than bears these days! Sorry we weren't clear.
