Read below for more tips on how to save money at Build-a-Bear and make the most of your experience.
Count Your Candles birthday program
Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members can take advantage of the year-long Count Your Candles birthday program, where kids 14 and under can “pay their age” for the new Birthday Treat Bear during their birthday month.
The birthday celeBEARation includes the full Build-A-Bear experience and special birthday extras at no additional charge, including;
-Birthday Heart for Their Furry Friend
-Special Birthday Heart Ceremony
-Birthday Cake Photo Prop
-Ringing the Birthday Bell and Announce Their Birthday to the Entire Workshop
The Count Your Candles Birthday Bear is regularly $14, so it’s a great birthday treat!
While they won’t be able to choose just any bear, they’ll be able to enjoy the experience during their most special month for less. The Birthday Treat Bear is different each year, so if you’ve gone before it should be different the next year.
Add-on’s and clothing are extra, but if you keep an eye on the clearance section throughout the year, you can grab some clothing and outfits for the bears while they are discounted.
How to save money at Build-a-Bear
Browse the sale and clearance sections on the Build-A-Bear website. Many of the animals can be purchased un-stuffed and taken into the store to stuff for no extra charge (except optional accessories).
Animals that can be purchased unstuffed will offer the option on the product page before you add it to your shopping bag. If the option for “unstuffed” isn’t listed, that animal will arrive pre-stuffed.
You can also purchase outfits and accessories on sale and clearance and save money on the whole experience. Just let them know that you brought your own bears and outfits when you get to the store.
We purchased bear “skins” and outfits online when they were having a big sale, so when we took our son into the store for his Birthday Treat bear, his younger sister was able to fill and dress her own bear for no extra cost (minus the heartbeat add-in option, because we thought that was really cool).
The Count Your Candles Birthday Bear is only available to Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members. It’s free to sign up for those 18 or order.
Birthday kids can come into the store with a Bonus Club member. Adults over the age of 18 can sign up to become a Bonus Club members.
