Count Your Candles

By DullesMoms, July 2023

Build-a-Bear Workshop’s first-ever Pay-Your-Age Day in 2018 was so popular they had to end it early due to unprecedented lines and safety concerns. However, for those who missed it (or didn’t want to wait hours in line), they have an alternative that’s just as unique: Count Your Candles!

Bring your birthday kiddo to a Build-a-Bear Workshop any day during their birthday month, and the age they are turning is how much it costs to make their very own Birthday Treat Bear! 5-years-old? That’s just five bucks! 8-years-old? That’s just eight bucks!

Their Count Your Candles offer is available in stores only to Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members (become a member — it’s free!). Please note the availability of the Birthday Treat Bear may vary by store, therefore, call your local Workshop to confirm availability before visiting.
