Hopeful participants have until Sunday to sign in to or make a Bonus Club Member account and fill out a "birthday profile", which will allow them to enter the contest, the company said.

Build-A-Bear is hosting a "Pay Your Age" event at select locations from June 24 through June 28.

More than 200,000 tickets will be given out, including 175,000 tickets in the U.S. Others had lines where people waited as long as seven hours to get a bear.

This time, the event will be a sweepstakes with a limited number of tickets awarded.

Children who aren't able to snag a ticket to pay their age later this month or an all-inclusive birthday bash can still participate in the Count Your Candles promotion, where they can pay their age for their own Birthday Treat Bear (regularly $14) anytime during their birthday month.

This year though, shoppers will need to enter a sweepstake to have the chance to take part in the limited offer. however, as an extra incentive, you also can potentially win a birthday party experience.

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

Last year, Build-A-Bear created a frenzy in malls across the country when it held the special event.

If you don't get a ticket, Build-A-Bear still offers children the chance to get a bear at the price of their age with the Count Your Candles birthday program.
