Is your kiddo looking for their newest bear-y BFF? Well, Pay Your Age Day at Build-A-Bear Workshop is coming on Thursday, July12. And this is a super-special day that fans of the furry fabulous that is BAB just can’t miss.

So how does this “Day” work? To start with, you need to enroll in the complimentary Build-A=Bear Bonus Club rewards program. Not only will enrolling in BAB’s program get you the deal of all deals on Pay Your Age Day, but it will also get you early access to special offers and you can earn points towards rewards. And really, who doesn’t like rewards? When you do redeem those oh-so-special rewards, BAB will donate a “furry friend” to the Build-A-Bear Foundation!

After enrolling in the rewards program your kiddo is ready to participate in Pay Your Age Day. So just head out to your local Build-A-Bear Workshop store (this special isn’t available online) for a day of bear play. Your child can pick out their fave friend and then you (drumroll please)…literally, pay your child’s age.

That’s right. If your little one is five, you pay five dollars. Yay! Oh, but that’s not all. Rewards program members also get a special perk during their birthday month with Build-A-Bear’s ‘Count Their Candles’ program kicks. Again, you pay your child’s age and get a bear-y cute bestie to take home. This deal is only available for use with the Birthday Treat Bear and can only be redeemed after July 12 and during your child’s bday month.
