Nicholle, how horrible. That is so sad for you. Turns a fun, exciting experience into a horror knowing it might be a stolen item. I'm so glad they were helpful for you.

Alyssa, your experience will depend on your store and the people working there. Some of us have taken the animals in and gotten a tag to make a new certificate, with no problem. Others have taken in birth certificates to rebirth old animals and had no problem.

Then there have been others who have taken the actually animal in and were told that it is not BABW's policy to do that and they only got a Welcome Pass. Of course, with the welcome pass, you bring an animal online but you do not get wallpaper or gifts

Thumbs up Very old bear

I bought my first bear in 1997 (the day my BABW opened up) and they gave a choice back then to make a certificate or a story about the bear...we chose the story and we still have it. So, when I brought in the bear I told them this and I had NO Trouble making a certificate for my bear....I even used the original birth date way back in 1997....

Thank you as well! I do know one of the people there pretty well and maybe she could help me.

Thank you for your advice Faith and Princessbunny. I did call the toll free number to see if they had an answer and they told me to call the store. The employees told me that they were having a problem with their printer and that it was still down today. They told me to bring them back in the next time we were in the area and then they would reprint them. I am so thankful for this blog. Without everyones helpful suggestions I would have never gotten everything figured out.

Thanks to you too Nicholeballerina. I called the store and it was a printer problem. I am so glad I posted about this and am grateful for everyones advice.

If you have the old certificate, not a receipt, will they give you a new one?
