Pay Your Age In Your Birthday Month @ 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*.

                          yeah, I think so. By the looks of it you don't get to choose your bear, it's just a plain bear but you can pay extra I think to jazz it up xxx
