Default 'Rebirthing'? 'New Certificates'?

I was bored, and viewing past threads, when I came across this.

I have read EVERY post, and near the end, it says the welcome passes were discontinued, but it didn't precisly say that the whole 'rebirthing' thing was 'outlawed'.

Is it? I have (let me count in my head... ... ...) 9 buildabears maybe? Only 3 did I get the birth certificate with. The rest, I had the whole 'choose a story/certificate'. Guess what I chose? Story. I would LOVE it if I had the opportunity to make certificates for all the others, (my brother would also like it for his 3).

Is it possible to go into BABW and get a certificate? I was reading through the posts and most people said that people who work at BABW are more than happy to please you. I really havn't seen that in the people at my store. My mom says ever since there was a change in management there, the 'employment' has taken a slip, and the people aren't always that reliable, so she feels uncomfortable to ask them. (having gotten in a squabble in trying to get the jump rope code...long story.)

Rebirthing is up to each store's own rules. My store allows you to make ONE old animal a certificate, you probably wouldn't be able to do all of them. The store I used to work at didn't allow it at all. You just have to ask. It's usually a no, but it's worth a try, like I said, I don't think they will let you do more than one, if any. As much as you may feel awkward just ask! It doesn't hurt to ask, and if you don't than you may never know. You can even give them a call on the phone to save yourself a trip!

Oh and I'm really sorry you are unhappy with the people who work at the BABW near you. Hopefully it isn't my store! jk haha. We are always happy + trying to make people happy. I would give them another chance, it might have just been a busy day, or the people my have been new to everything.

Lol, thanks Thea. I emailed Maxine about this issue, and she sent back some sort of 'special request' for each bear. It's being taken cared of.
