Build-A-Bear brings back ‘Pay Your Age' day in June


To be eligible for a ticket, guests will have toenter online and join Build-A-Bear's Bonus Club.

This new system was developed in an effort to reduce the chaos that ensued previous year during the company's first Pay Your Age event that was held on one day.

More than 200,000 guests around the world are expected to receive tickets.

The sale allows customers to buy a stuffed animal for the same price as their age. The store closed its three hours early, leaving many upset that they waited as long as they did.

In the "frequently asked questions" section of the website, the company acknowledged changes in this year's event. People have until June 16 for a chance to get a ticket to the Pay Your Age event.
