Become a Build A Bear Bonus Club Member

To reap the most benefits of hosting a party, you must become a Build A Bear Bonus Club Member. This is a free program that allows you to get some major discounts throughout the year as well as during your Build A Bear birthday party event.

All you have to do is go online and sign up for a free membership. You could also become a member while in the store. The choice is yours.

There are several benefits to this membership and it’s all included for FREE. So, there is really no reason to NOT participate – especially if you have little children. 

Here are some of the reasons that I think the free program will be worth your while:

  • Earn Points Toward Valuable Rewards!
  • Get Early Access and Special Offers!
  • Enjoy Unique Events and Experiences!
  • Earn 1 point for every $1 you spend.
  • Get $10 in rewards for every 100 points!

Build a Bear Birthday Treat Bear

Build A Bear has their very own special birthday treat bear that is available for any birthday girl or boy to enjoy. The Build A Bear birthday treat bear is available in store during your Build A Bear birthday party.

Besides the adorable treat bear, you will get to reap other awards as well! 

  • Make and take home a furry friend – best party favor ever!
  • Fun themes to choose from
  • Packages fit any budget
  • A Party Leader guides the adventure (5 or more Guests)
  • Earn Bonus Club points as a Build-A-Bear Bonus Club Member
  • Party-planning made simple — with zero clean-up!

So, the birthday child gets the special bear, but their guests gets something pretty neat as well. Everyone walks away a winner! 

Make Your Own Build A Bear

Build A Bear Birthday Pay Your Age

Ok, we are adding this in because it revolves around the birthday celebration, but truth be told – you don’t NEED to book a party in order to take advantage of the “Pay Your Age” promotion that the company has to offer. 

Here’s the deal – as long as your child is under 14 – if you bring them in on the day of their actual birthday AND you are a CLUB MEMBER THEN you can literally PAY THEIR AGE for a Build A Bear. HOW COOL IS THAT?

Here is an example – Little Timmy is 4 years old. Guess what? Little Timmy’s bear will run you FOUR BUCKS. WHAT????????? How can you not do this? Put a note in your calendar!!! Do not miss this. 

Take Advantage of Bonus Club Perks

As a bonus club member with Build A Bear, you’ll get more out of your membership when you plan to host a birthday build a bear party. With all birthday parties hosted at Build A Bear, you’ll get the following included at no extra cost:

  • Special Birthday Heart Celebration
  • Birthday Heart for Their Furry Friend
  • Birthday Cake Photo Opp
  • Birthday Sticker
  • Birthday Party Hat
  • Ringing the Birthday Bell and Announcing their Birthday to the Entire Workshop

Yahoo!! Your child is going to have a blast. I just know it. Forget about the stickers and the party hat…. let’s talk about the party bell. I want to ring that bell. What’s that about?! LOL! 

Build A Bear Coupon

There are many coupons for Build A Bear birthday parties and special events. Groupon has some offers available for parents to save money on their child’s Build A Bear birthday party event.

This is the most important tip for hosting a party for your child while staying within the household budget. And you KNOW we are all about that lately.

How Much Does a Build A Bear Birthday Party Cost?

The prices to host a Build A Bear birthday range from as little as $12 to as high as $45 per guest. There are party planners on hand to assist parents in staying within a specific budget as they work to plan their own child’s Build A Bear Birthday party event.

If you just want to pick a specific package, then there are build a party box options available on the Build A Bear Workshops website to review and choose from.

Build A Bear has many discounts, savings and special offers for bonus club members. Be sure to sign up for Build A Bear’s Free Bonus Club Membership before you host your first bash.

Can You Bring Outside Food Or Drink?

Here’s the one thing I wish was different about Build A Bear. You cannot bring in any food or drink from outside establishments. They are actually not licensed to serve it!

The good news is most locations are in a mall or near a crowded touristy area. So, what we usually do is have the party and then head up to the food court for some lunch. 

So, what do you think? Something you’d consider? Would love to hear if this is something you are seriously considering.
