Struggle to know what to buy your kid for a birthday?
Are they desperate for a Build-A-Bear teddy, but you’re worried about the cost?
That’s no longer a problem with the Count Your Candles offer from Build-A-Bear Workshop.
Count Your Candles
As a way to bring down the cost of getting a new teddy, Build-A-Bear is offering kids a way to get a really cheap teddy for their birthday.
While you can pick up some bears online for just £10, the Pay Your Age offer can really save you a few quid, especially if you have younger ones.
You simply need to count how many candles will be on their cake and you pay their age for a new bear.
Pay Your Age
This isn’t just an offer run on your child’s actual birthday.
The special ted can be made at the lower price during their entire birthday month.
To get the offer, you just need to be a member of the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club.
It’s free and easy to join the club. You can sign up online here or you can just sign up in store.
You can get a Happy Birthday teddy in store only and you will just have to pay the age of your child.
If they’ve just turned one you will pay just £1.
If your son, daughter, grandchild, niece/nephew etc is celebrating their 5th birthday then you pay £5.
This offer works up to the age of 14.
How to get a cheap Build-A-Bear
When it’s your child’s birthday month, just go to the store and let them know you’re celebrating a birthday
You don’t need to show any proof of age, but you will need to be a member of the Bonus Club.
At the moment, when you create a Bonus Club account, you don’t need to add the date of birth of your child.
You will then get to make a new furry Birthday Treat Bear (RRP £14) and pay however old your child is.
As an extra special bonus, HotUKDeals have shared that when you get a birthday bear using the Count Your Candles offer, you also get a whole experience at no extra cost:
- Special Birthday Heart Ceremony
- Birthday Cake Photo Prop
- Birthday Sticker
- Birthday Party Hat
- Ringing the Birthday Bell and Announce Their Birthday to the Entire Workshop
This offer is valid in a Build-A-Bear store, so you won’t be able to get one from their website.
Remember though, if you add any sounds, heartbeats, smells, clothes or accessories you will need to pay extra.
Pay Your Age Day
Build-A-Bear had a Pay Your Age Day back in July 2018.
It sounded like a fantastic idea (it was their first one)…but it was pretty much a disaster for most.
The queues were huge as people were lining up for hours to get a bargain for their little ones.
It got to the point that people were being turned away so got nothing for waiting around for so long.
By having a paying your age offer (for an entire month) will give more people the chance to nab an awesome bargain bear, without the panic.
