People are being told NOT to go to the Build A Bear pay your age for a teddy day as at least three stores have been forced to close as they have been advised by authorities due to sheer numbers of people turning up and worries for peoples safety.


Original deal posted by @babyblueHERE

On their Facebook page they have announced that Meadowhall, Telford and Basingstoke stores have had to close due to advice from authorities, extreme crowds and safety concerns and the schoools haven't even finished for the day yet!

If you were going to go and you have already signed up to the club, they are also doing a scheme called count your candles were your child up to age 14 can pay their age for a bear in their birthday month so might be worth waiting for all this to die down and letting them restock and going then.

Comments on their Facebook page are over 1600 at the moment - most from angry parents.
Some Hot Uk Dealers have already been down and loaded some pictures - looks chaos and not a place you'd want to be with small kids with reports of pushing and shoving already.

I don't get people who queue for hours just to save a few quid. How much is your own time worth to you.
its a teddy bear shop, what numpties, its like the crowds who turn up at Next sales at some ungodly hour to fight over clothes.

I assume @deeky won't be in the queue for this offer.[Image]


As it happens I'm just waiting for my dog-sitter who has just got to the front of the queue at the Bury shop, after a 3 hour wait

Oh, your joke...

It's no better in Kent, queues of up to 1000 allegedly.

the point was for people with babies to go and get them for £1 or £2 .. if I took my 10 year old I'd be paying that much for a bear anyway!

Yeah of course I was meaning those 5 or 6 which from the last time we were in would still be a saving.

Some of the US store will not know what hit them, many are in malls which have so many empty shops it will be the first time they have been busy on years. Was in a few earlier in the year, they had 100+ shops but only 20 or 30were actually open no idea how they made any money.

Say I want a bear today, but I am 28, do I have to pay my age or retail..

Let's get Sherlock Gnomes on the case.
People freak about dogs in cars, but lets just queue with a pram in the hot sun for hours for a toy the baby is to young to care about

Inside a pram get very hot too, babies are more delicate than dogs, prams are made of thick plasticky fabrics, if the pram is covered its dangerous, if you leave the baby exposed its dangerous.

Usual self entitled suspects on the radio screeching "disgrace" and demanding to know how you tell a three year old they can't have a bear how about buying them elsewhere, just a thought?

I would say the same thing but if enjoy doing it it's not time wasted

I personally wouldn't I can't stand to wait in a queue, Its not because I value my time it's because it's super boring

I spend all my day sleeping, having arguements on Twitter and Hotukdeals, have a bit of education, play a bit of Xbox, pull my 'pork', take a shower, cry myself to sleep

May I suggest that you change around the chronology of your day? How much time are you currently allocating to each pursuit?

Nah, would have been too many grizzly children in the queues.
Parents actually took their kids out of school to get a bear for a fiver.

These people shouldn’t be allowed to have children or vote!!

Oh I forget walking my dog

I'll put in order from longest to least time
Longest: Sleeping
Xbox
Social Media
Dog walking
Pulling my 'pork'


I know my life sucks, it's like a loop, it was better than what I used to do, my days last year when I ran a eBay store which sold a lot of low value products, that was too stressful so I had to quit since I had anxiety from it

Nothing really else I can do I get bored easily, I like to try new things but I've lived in the same boring town all my life

Are you getting any significant exercise? Circa 10-miles (1 intense hour) on a bike, 3 times a week, could be transformative. It may also help you deal with work-related anxiety in the future.

Absolutely spot on, the best point that has been made on any topic on here for months.

Well said!

All sounds good, but a bit a endorphin-generating exercise thrown in might help. High-intensity exercise can provide different benefits to low-impact exercise, even in small doses. I don't know you or your situation, so don't take this in a patronising way, but if you have a few minutes free, take a look at Gerald Ratner and the positive impact that cycling had in moving him on in life again.

I don't think "pulling a Ratner" is the same as @Norseg pulling his pork. Then again...

PS. Some comments about High-Impact Intensity Training, & a very one-sided discussion from a vocal member about everything else...

Some people appear to be beyond (accepting) help.
It's really slack by them not to expect massive amounts of people... it cost an arm and a leg for a bloody teddy normally, so many people can't warrant spending that amount on a teddy.
I’d rather go next day and pay full price. Straight in straight out making a mega saving.
