I don’t know about you but when I was a kid all I wanted for a number of years was to go to a Build-A-Bear store and create the stuffed toy of my absolute dreams!

But unfortunately, I was usually treated to a ‘Maybe next time’ seeing as the toys are considerably higher in price compared to other plush animals.

That is until now! Build-A-Bear Australia has just announced that they will be playing host to a Pay Your Age Day later this week where you can literally grab a toy for the same price as your age!

This means that yep if you’re 10-years-old (or the child you’re buying the toy for is 10) you’ll literally pay $10 instead of the usual $45 plus! So if you’re planning on grabbing one of the toys for someone for Christmas, now is definitely the time to do so!

It’s all going down on Thursday, November 15 as part of the company’s ‘I Heart Birthdays’ program and will take place and all of their 28 stores across the country, meaning you can get your hands on one of the teddies no matter where you live!

But of course with great sales there are always a number of rules so before you go running to your closest store, take note of the terms and conditions.

The rules state:


– the one-day deal means you pay your current age, in dollars for one of only four eligible bears

– guests must visit a Build-A-Bear Australia store on November 15; the offer is only valid in stores

– parents or guardians over the age 18 need only subscribe to the complimentary Build-A-Bear Australia VIB Loyalty Program, before or on the day of the event so that a Guest, who is present at the time of purchase, can pay his or her age for one of the four eligible furry friends

– the person wishing to pay his or her age must be present at the time of purchase. Minimum price is $1 and maximum is $15

– the Pay Your Age Day offer is only valid on four pre-selected furry friends. This offer cannot be combined with any other offers and Outfits and accessories sold separately

The four bears up for grabs are shown in the image below!


And if for some reason you happen to miss out on this sale day, from Friday November 16 as part of the ‘I Heart Birthdays’ program, the Birthday Treat Bear will be only $10 for anyone during their birthday month.

Write the date in your calendar everyone! You’re about to become the world’s best parent with this amazing deal!
