Anyone who joins the virtual waiting room will be placed in the order in which they joined. Once in the virtual waiting room, as your turn is approaching, you will be given access to start shopping through the sale.  THIS IS LIVE NOW! Just head to the Build-A-Bear website to snag yours!

You can purchase up to four furry friends per transaction, however, you can still purchase additional regularly priced items in the same transaction. Once you have made your first furry friend choice, you will then move to the Bear Builder for the option to personalize your furry friend.

You have the option to order your furry friends either stuffed or unstuffed. Stuffed furry friends arrive fully stitched and ready to play. Unstuffed furry friends can be taken to your local Build-A-Bear Workshop so you can enjoy the stuffing experience in person.

During this event, standard shipping rates will apply.

Bonus Club members can apply reward certificates at checkout, however, other coupons cannot be combined with this offer.

Please allow up to an hour to receive your order confirmation email and view your order history. Payment may be visible in your account prior to receiving an order confirmation email.

      There’s a banner in the website that says sale starts today but I find no waiting room?

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

    Looks like Aug 12

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      So odd, as I still see July 27th listed through the link above.

  5. Ali

    I am still trying to find the virtual waiting room

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Be sure to check back real soon! This should begin at 10am CST.

  6. Joni

    I found the waiting room. I had to go to the pull down menu and press sale then choose no line sale. Hate that I didn’t get in at 9:30! Good luck

    • Ali

      Thank you so Much!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful comment!

  7. Heather

    So do I just make sure I’m logged in and then have the page open?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Heather! It looks like this is open now. Be sure to login and click on The Bear Builder at the top left of the site. Hope that helps!

  8. Amanda

    Thank you Jodi for the help in finding where the waiting room was!

    • Joni

      NP! Glad I can help!

  9. Jessica G Petree

    I don’t know if anyone will see this but I got into the queue. You just click on the pink words “the-bear-builder”

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for the tip!

  10. Sara

    So they’re not $4? It is price as marked for sale items?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! Select furry friends will start at $4.

  11. Amanda

    I am being charged $9 shipping with a $35 order before tax – does anyone know why?

  12. Amanda

    Just spoke with customer service and they stated that there is no free shipping at this time.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Amanda! I just spoke with customer service and was able to confirm that as well! Sorry for the confusion.

  13. Cindy Lou

    This sale is a disappointment – only a very few animals were $4.

    • kspwife859

      I agree! Plus almost $9 shipping for a $4 item. Ridiculous! I refuse to pay that!

    • Gina

      I got 4 teddy bears (the limit) so with shipping they ended up being $6. I’m taking my daughter and her three friends to do this as part of her birthday party. Seems reasonable when I think of it as an “event” for a birthday.

  14. Amy


    Is this deal over? Thank you!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Amy! Yes! This has ended. We’ll keep an eye out for any other HOT Build A Bear offers that pop up!

      • Lindsay

        Build a Bear extended this sale. Currently going on Wednesday July 28th

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Thank you for letting us know, Lindsay! I’ve updated the post.
