*Update* This day was so successful that it failed. Many parents and very sad kids have been turned away from Build-A-Bear today as the lines are now closed throughout the entire USA.
If you are not already in a line at your Build-A-Bear then do not go. Their lines are closed and due to overwhelming demand they are no longer accepting any more guests. Here's their statement:
"Urgent Alert: Lines Closed for Pay Your Age Day Event
Per local authorities, we cannot accept additional Guests at our locations due to crowds and safety concerns. We have closed lines in our U.S. and Canada stores. We understand some Guests are disappointed and we will reach out directly as soon as possible."
Mark your calendars. Build-A-Bear just announced that for the first time ever and on July 12th, 2018 you can pay your age for your new furry friend!
For instance if your child is 6 they will pay just $6 for a Build-A-Bear, or 2 year olds will pay just $2 and so on.
This is available for Bonus Club members only. If you are not a member no worries it's free tosign up and this will make you eligible for this awesome sale when the day comes.
As a Bonus Club member each of your children (or even the neighborhood kids) can get 1 Build-A-Bear of their choice. They will be able to stuff it and make it right in the store all for the price of their age.
Plus signing up for the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club will keep you in the loop on all the details on upcoming sales, member-only offers, reward points and even sneak peeks of their new collections all sent right to your inbox.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up now and on July 12th head to your local store for a fun filled date with the kids.
