Build-A-Bear is giving its popular pay-your-age deal another go this year, with a few changes.

The company announced the second year of its Count Your Candles birthday program in which it will offer sweepstakes for the chance to win a birthday party experience. Those who get a limited ticket can pay their age for a stuffed animal.

Rather than offering the deal for any Build-A-Bear’s Bonus Club member while supplies last like it did in 2018, Build-A-Bear is instead providing a limited number of tickets to the birthday program. Those with tickets can visit a Build-A-Bear Workshop for one day from June 24 through 28. Guests can make one furry friend per child with a limit of two stuffed toys per ticket. The minimum price guests will pay under the offer is $1. The max is $29.

Ten of those guests may win the birthday party grand prize, which can be used once in the next 12 months.

But to have the chance to get a ticket, you have to be a Bonus Club Member and complete a new birthday profile. It’s free to join and the sweepstakes end June 16.
