If a trip to Build-A-Bear is on your kid’s birthday wish list, the workshop is having a sweepstakes you have to enter.

To kick off the second year of their Count Your Candles birthday program, Build-A-Bear is offering a chance to win a birthday party experience, plus a chance to participate in a limited-ticket offer event to “pay your age” for a new furry friend.

Now through June 16, members of the Build-A-Bear bonus club rewards program who complete a birthday profile in their online account (which is free to join) can enter both the sweepstakes and the pay-your-age offer. Winners will be notified by June 21 and if you win the pay-your-age ticket offer, it’s valid on select days June 24-28 and on select furry friends.

The pay-your-age offer includes one furry friend per child present, with a limit of two furry friends per ticket. Ten winners will be chosen for the Count Your Candles sweepstakes grand prize of a birthday party, which is valued up to $250 and valid for any time in the next 12 months. And hey, isn’t a Build-A-Bear birthday party way cooler than boring presents like an iPad or a new Xbox?

“At Build-A-Bear Workshop, we love parties and want to help parents create special birthday moments with their children,” Sharon Price John, president and chief executive officer of Build-A-Bear Workshop, said in a press release. “Our Count Your Candles birthday program is designed to increase the accessibility for kids to be able to celebrate their most special day at Build-A-Bear Workshop.”

You may remember when Build-A-Bear held a pay-your-age event last year and things got a bit out of hand. After the event drew such large crowds that stores were forced to cut off lines, Build-A-Bear has come up with a bit of a solution to that issue as well.

Aside from the chance to win a ticket for the pay-your-age event in June, guests 14 and under who visit the workshop with a Build-A-Bear bonus club member in the month of their birthday can pay their age for Build-A-Bear’s birthday treat bear, valued at $14.
