Build-A-Bear WorkshopGuests can Pay Their Age for any Make-Your-Own Furry Friend available in
Build-A-Bear Workshop® stores on Thursday, July 12, in celebration of the company’s new ‘Count Your Candles’ birthday experience. 

To kick off its new, everyday celebration of birthdays, Build-A-Bear Workshop announced it will host its first-ever Pay Your Age Day event in all U.S., Canada and U.K. stores on Thursday. 

As part of the one-day deal, guests who visit a store in person Thursday can pay their current age, in dollars (U.S. and Canada) or pounds (U.K.), for any Make-Your-Own furry friend available in the store in celebration of the launch of the Build-A-Bear “Count Your Candles” birthday experience.  

Pro Tips:  
• Adults, parents and guardians are encouraged to enroll in the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club online before arriving at stores on July 12 to save time at checkout.  
• Guests at U.S. and Canada stores can purchase a furry friend unstuffed, if they prefer to come back for stuffing at another time.  
• This offer is only available in stores on one Make-Your-Own furry friend (outfits, sounds, accessories and scents are excluded). 
• The person wishing to pay his or her age must be present at the time of purchase.  
• The offer cannot be combined with any other offers. 

“We have overwhelming data that indicates Build-A-Bear is synonymous with childhood, and nearly one-third of our sales are associated with birthdays,” said Sharon Price John, president and chief executive officer, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “We ‘heart’ birthdays at Build-A-Bear, so we’re hosting the Pay Your Age Day to launch our year-round ‘Count Your Candles’ offer for Guests celebrating a birthday with us in stores — an experience we designed especially to commemorate birthdays in a memorable way.” 

Also starting Thursday, guests ages 14 and under, who visit Build-A-Bear Workshop with a Build-A-Bear Bonus Club member can ‘Count Their Candles’ and pay their age for a Birthday Treat Bear (valued at $14 USD/£14 GBP/$14 CAD) in the month of their birthday, an offer that will be available year-round. A child turning four, for example, would have four candles on their cake and pay $4 USD/£4 GBP/$4 CAD for a Birthday Treat Bear, plus tax. 

Birthday guests will also enjoy an engaging experience, including a party hat, special sticker and fun photo props when they want to capture the moment.
