It's back. The 'Pay Your Age' event at Build-A-Bear Workshop is returning, but this time there's new rules.

As part of their Bonus Club, the Build-A-Bear Workshop hosts an event called 'Pay Your Age' where kids get to pay their age for a stuffed teddy bear. Last year stores across the country had to be shut down because they couldn't handle the massive crowds that turned out for the event.

In order to avoid a repeat, Build-A-Bear has added new rules to the program. Now, Bonus Club members must enter a sweepstakes to win tickets to the event.

If you're hoping to win a ticket, you'll have to act fast. The sweepstakes ends June 16, 2019. You'll need to visit their website and:

  • Join their Bonus Club
  • Complete a new birthday profile
  • Enter for a chance to receive a Pay Your Age ticket (valid select days June 24-28, 2019) or win a birthday party experience valued at $250

According to the Build-A-Bear website, "more than 200,000 guests around the world are expected to receive a Pay Your Age limited ticket. With their ticket, guests will be able to visit a Build-A-Bear Workshop during one of two redemption periods in the week of June 24 through June 28 and make one furry friend per child present, limit two furry friends per ticket."
