After an unbelievable "Pay Your Age" deal at Build-a-Bear didn't exactly go as planned, the company is apologizing to disappointed kids and parents by offering a coupon that can be used at a later date. Vouchers will be honored by August 31 of this year.

Huge crowds forced Build-A-Bear to cancel its "Pay Your Age" event. The vouchers must then be printed or presented as a screenshot at Build-A-Bear locations.

The company distributed vouchers to customers who were still waiting in lines after they were shut down.

"We are now making vouchers available to our UK Build-A-Bear Bonus Club members, who log into their account by midnight on July 18, 2018".

Maxine Clark, the founder of the "Build-A-Bear" experience, was once asked the secret of the company's success. It said the goal is to better control traffic at the stores and prevent long lines and significant wait times.

St. Louis-based Build-A-Bear has some 400 stores worldwide.

It is the result of a strike by pilots who are due to walk out for 24 hours from 01:00 BST on Thursday. However, only those travelling between Ireland and the United Kingdom will be hit by the stoppage.

"We understand some of our guests are disappointed and we will reach out directly as soon as possible".

"With much higher than anticipated demand for its "Pay Your Age Day" promotion, Build-A-Bear has become a victim of its own success", Saunders wrote in a note on Thursday.

Thank you for your passion and continued support. It was pure chaos at some stores!
