Toy store Build-a-Bear Workshop is bringing back its pay your age day with strict new rules limiting the deal to 200,000 customers.

Parents or carers who wish to buy their children a discount stuffed toy must become a Build-a-Bear Bonus Club member and fill out a birthday profile online.

That application must be completed by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, June 16, with 200,000 members then chosen at random to come and make a bargain bear.

Winners will be given the chance to come and get up to two bears on two three day windows – June 24-26, or June 26-28.

Both children who plan to pay their age for the bear must be there in person to pay for the bear themselves, and any two bears a single ticket allows must be bought at the same time.
