Pay Your Age In Your Birthday Month @ Build-a-Bear

Pay Your Age Offer @ Build-a-Bear

The Pay Your Age event at Build-a-Bear was hugely popular, with hundreds of families queuing for hours to get a bargain bear. Luckily you don't need to queue like that again, as Build-a-Bear have launched a new pay your age scheme called Count Your Candles, with a special Birthday Treat Bear and a birthday ceremony in store!

Each year in the month of your child's birthday they will be able to go into a store and get the special Birthday Bear and just pay £1 for each year of their age. So a four year old will pay just £4, a five year old £5 and so on. These bears normally cost £14, so it's a great offer to pay your age instead.

This is an in store offer only, and you need to be a member of the free Build-a-Bear Bonus Club, and you can register online here*.

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.

You can find full details of the Count Your Candles promotion here*.

  • Leila S.

    I’ve signed up... what now to be eligible? It’s my daughters birthday on Wednesday so would be a lovely treat!

  • Sarah S.

    Thanks. Think we’ll probably do this with Rose. We ended up with a voucher from Build a Bear as a result of the pay your age fiasco. It actually made James’ bear cost even less than his age - bonus! x

  • Julie W.

    Just go in to any store some might ask for a birth certificate but as long as your childs birthday is in that month then you will only pay their age xx

  • Leila S.

    Julie Whitelaw excellent thank you. I’ve never actually done the whole build a bear thing with my two and my daughter turns 7 on Wednesday so I think it’s about time!!!

  • Toni W.

    You put yours, but you have to take the child with you x

  • Helen M.

    Is it the child's birthday you put in on the application to sign up?! I'm assuming so...but the rest is all obviously the adult? X

  • Julie W.

    Leila Sandford they will love it i think i get more excited thsn the kids just watch with any accessories you get for it, you can end up spending a fortune on them and remember before you pay go to the wee screens and your kids can make up a birth certificate for their bear xx
