Deep breaths.  Build-A-Bear is running another ridiculous discount...but unlike the great Pay Your Age Day Fiasco of 2018, this celeBEARation will be split up over two days!

Despite the obnoxiously large crowd that descended upon Boise Towne Square Mall last July, most parents appreciated the opportunity to bring their kids to build a new furry friend for just a few dollars.  A lot of the feedback we got about the Pay Your Age Day experience came from single moms who said the long wait was worth it.  A trip to Build-A-Bear when you're on a single income and have a couple of littles isn't always affordable. These moms were appreciative of the experience our local store's employees gave their kids even in the midst of absolute chaos.

If the day was a hit with you're family, make sure to check out Build-A-Bear for their next big celeBEARation on Sunday, January 20 or Monday, January 21! They're celebrating National Hug Day, by letting your kids stuff a new furry friend to hug for just $5.50.  There are three bears to choose from: Lil' Cub Pudding, Lil' Cub Walnut and Lil' Cub Brownie and if you make it in time, your kids can bring their new friend to life with a special limited-edition National Hug Day heart!

By the way, we know the names of these new friends are deceiving.  They may sound like a mini-version of some of the most popular Build-A-Bear friends but, according to Romper, they are full size 15" bears. You can buy up to six of them at a time.

If you're still trying to recover from the shock of being swallowed by the crowd during Pay Your Age Day fiasco, you can take advantage of Build-A-Bear's online offer for National Hug Day.  They'll be offering a to be determined collection of bears you can purchase through their website for just $10 on Sunday and Monday.

Boise's Build-A-Bear Workshop is located inside the Boise Towne Square Mall.  They're hours for the National Hug Day Event are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Monday.
