Since early this week, Build-a-Bear Workshop has been teasing customers about their biggest promotion ever. Today, they were allowing customers to buy a stuffed animal for only the price of their age. If you are five-years-old, you pay five bucks for any toy in the store. Neat, huh? Well, the promotion was a little too big.

Lines, even at Eastland Mall in Evansville, were wrapping around the OUTSIDE of the building. See pics above and below from our friend Alyssa Schnautz!

Build-a-Bear just issued an urgent update about the promotion on Facebook. They have closed all stores because of safety concerns. We have heard they are issuing vouchers but cannot confirm that at this time. So, if you were planning on making a trip to the mall today for a bear, skip it!
