The first time didn't go as planned, so this year Build -A-Bear is bringing back their "Pay Your Age" promotion with a few changes in hopes of preventing the chaos of last year's event. Those tickets will allow guests to visit a Build-A-Bear Workshop near them during one of two redemption periods in the week of June 24-28.

Most furry friends available for purchase are included with the ticket, with some exclusions.

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. The store closed its three hours early, leaving many upset that they waited as long as they did.

The deadline to enter for a ticket is June 16.

Those who win will find out via email around June 21, according to Build-A-Bear.

In addition to the ticket giveaway, Build-A-Bear is also holding a sweepstakes where 10 guests could win the grand prize of a birthday party experience valued at $250. Build-A-Bear at the time said it had to cut off lines at its US stores after local authorities required outlets around the country to limit crowd sizes.

Now, rather than simply showing up on a given day and waiting in a massive line, Build-A-Bear has a three-step process for a chance to pay your age for one of the stuffed bears.
