ST. LOUIS – July 12, 2018 – Build-A-Bear Workshop’s Pay Your Age Day event generated an overwhelming response, resulting in long lines, extensive waits and disappointed Guests. We feel it is important to share that, based on the information available to us before the day began, we could not have predicted this unprecedented reaction to our Pay Your Age Day event. We understand that many Guests were turned away as, due to safety concerns created by the crowds, authorities in certain locations closed Build-A-Bear stores and, in other locations, we were forced to limit the line. Unfortunately, given these circumstances, we were unable to serve all of our Guests for the Pay Your Age Day event, as planned
In response, we distributed vouchers to Guests, who were present in lines, to be redeemed for a future purchase. We are now making vouchers available to our U.S. and Canada Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members, who log into their account by midnight CST on Sunday, July 15, 2018. Vouchers related to this event will be honored through August 31, 2018.
It is our sincere desire for all of our Guests to enjoy the best Build-A-Bear experience possible. As such, our goal with the voucher extension is to enable us to better flow traffic to the stores over the next several weeks to avoid long lines and wait times as much as possible. Therefore, we strongly encourage Guests to consider delaying their next planned trip to Build-A-Bear, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience in this matter.
Build-A-Bear Workshop takes seriously the privilege of providing our valued Guests with an opportunity to make a furry friend. It is with that spirit that we created our Pay Your Age Day event and the new, year-long Count Your Candles birthday program, where kids 14 and under can “pay their age” for our new Birthday Treats bear during their birthday month.
Thank you for your passion and continued support.
Per local authorities, we cannot accept additional Guests at our Canadian Build-A-Bear Workshop locations due to crowds and safety concerns. We have closed lines in our Canadian Stores. We understand some of our Guests are disappointed and we will reach out directly as soon as possible

PAY YOUR AGE DAY FAQS
Do I need to bring a form of identification to verify my age?
You do not need to present formal identification to participate in the offer. Tell a store associate how old you are on July 12, and you will be able to pay your current age for a furry friend.
Can I pay my child’s/children’s age for a furry friend I want to purchase?
Yes – you may pay the age of any and all children who are with you in the store. This offer is valid for one furry friend per Guest who is present in the store on July 12, and who is accompanying a Bonus Club member or adult over the age of 18 who signs up to become a Bonus Club member.
Does my child need to sign up for Build-A-Bear Bonus Club if I want to pay his/her age?
Guests must be 18 years old or older to sign up for Build-A-Bear Bonus Club; therefore, children under 18 are not required to sign up for Bonus Club. They need only accompany a Bonus Club member, or an adult over the age of 18 who signs up to become a Bonus Club member, in order to participate in the Pay Your Age Day event.
Is this offer available in all countries?
This offer is available in all U.S., Canada and U.K. Build-A-Bear Workshop stores.
How many furry friends can I purchase with this offer?
This offer is valid for one furry friend per Guest present in the store on July 12.
This offer seems too good to be true—are there any exclusions?
Exact product assortment varies slightly by store location; however, this offer is valid on any Make-Your-Own furry friend that is in stock in the Workshop on July 12.
What if my age is higher than the price of the furry friend I want to purchase?
On July 12 only, none of our U.S./Canada in-store Guests will be a day over 29 years old—meaning that no matter their age, Guests will pay no more than $29 USD / $29 CAD (plus tax) for any furry friend in stock in the store. A Guest who is 40 years old, for example, will only pay $29 for a furry friend valued at $35.
Can I pay less than $1 / £1 if my child is less than 1 year old?
The minimum price for this offer is $1 USD / £1 GBP / $1 CAD. A Guest may not pay less than this price for any furry friend, regardless of the Guest’s age or his/her child’s age.
I don’t live near a Build-A-Bear Workshop store. Can I still participate?
We understand that not all of our Guests live within driving distance of our stores, and therefore, not all are able to celebrate with us in person. We will have future events that are offered online, but this special offer is only available in the Workshop.
Can I purchase a furry friend unstuffed and come back to stuff it later?
Yes—U.S. and Canada Guests can pay their age for an unstuffed furry friend and come back to have the full Build-A-Bear Workshop experience at a later date. However, our Pokémon plush may not be purchased unstuffed.
I can’t make it in to a store on July 12—can I come back and participate another day or obtain a voucher to use another day?
The Build-A-Bear Workshop Pay Your Age Day offer is valid only on July 12, 2018. There are no vouchers available for this offer to be used at a later date.
