This time is different, though: Build-A-Bear has learned a few things about its customers' insatiable hunger for bargain-priced bear-stuffing, so it thought long and hard about the program, and this time there are rules, dammit, since you fiends can't control yourselves.

"Per local authorities, we can not accept additional guests at our locations due to crowd safety concerns".

For anyone who would like to take part in paying for a brand new Build-A-Bear based on their child's age, he or she will need to enter the Count Your Candles Sweepstakes to be one of the lucky ticket holders to attend the event.

Winners, who will be notified by email, will be able to make their own furry friend in-store and pay their current age in dollars with the minimum being $1 and the maximum being $29. Stores in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom were shuttered after mile-long lines formed, while some outposts were forced to close out of safety concerns. Plus, it's nice to know that in an era of tablets, GoPros and other electronics, kids still love stuffed animals! There's a limit of two bears per ticket. The offer is limited to two people per ticket.
