before when babv started you could renew the birth certificate codes but now you can't because it has to be after 2007 codes. srry : (

This is an interesting topic, I think if you have an old buid a bear certificate you can, in some stores ask to create one with a code, open certificates are not avalible anymore but with them you only get a bear not a PSI to go with it. I have got new certificates a few times because of old certificates, so it just depends on the store, I think staff in most stores are more than willing to let you create another certificate if you explain the problem

I think you may be getting mixed up with welcome passes. Welcome passes were avaliable with your bears before BABV started in 2007. If you still have the welcome pass you can put it on BABV, but if you don't you can take in your bear (depending on what your store allows), and get a new certificate with a keycode and animal ID which will work the same way as if you were to adopt a brand new bear.

That's not true, the lady must have been incorrect. She probably though you were talking about welcome passes, which were given out before BABV was made in 2007, they stopped them awhile back. It depends on your store, some stores have different policies and will not allow you to rebirth your bear. I suggest calling in before going to the store, and tell them that you can bring in your bear as proof.

But...

What if the furry friend isn't on there? Do they allow you to pick another?
If the furry friend is on there I'm not sure they'll allow you to get a new certificate, you can always ask them to see though. My sister brought in her ghost build-a-bear and they said that it wasn't going to work because it was an old one, but it actually did work. I'm pretty sure they have every furry friend on the list when you get the birth certificate renewed. When I got my bear rebirthed I could choose from HUNDREDS of bears.

If you turn in an old bear then you should get a new certificate and not a welcome pass. They don't give out welcome passes anymore, they stopped them awhile ago. Instead of giving you a welcome pass for an older bear they'll give you a newly made certificate. So you should get a PSI, bear bills, and wallpaper when activating it on BABV.

Actually this statement is true! All BABW were given this directive last year. Some stores have been pretty strict about the policy, while some have not. That's why it's always best to call your local BABW and see what their policy is on this issue.
