Default Unanswered: How to make a new birth certificate?

Okay so I'll probably maybe getting a new bear. I won't buy it at the BABW , i'll e buying it online. But it doesn't come with birth certificate (I think) So the thing is I don't know how to make a new birth certificate (at the store) And I wanted to make one so I could name it how I wanted and also have the Babv gifts I just wanted to know who to ask in the store, what do I do, what SHOULD I do...

Unfortunately, the stores are no longer allowed to let guests make a new birth certificate. It is now against the company rules. Please don't put your local store in a difficult position by asking to make one.

Huh? Strange, I had to go there a few weeks ago because the bear my friend gave me had fallen apart, and the girl there let me make a birth certificate because my friend didn't give it to me.

I had to actually make a new bear, same type, and it was free.

You should just ask, or maybe they'll give you a code online so you could print out the birth certificate.

Your situation is completely different if you had to make a new bear. The company policy is very straightforward - there is to be no new birth certificates for returning bears or bears bought from second party sites such as Ebay. The reason for this is that all those bears have already received their one certificate that comes with the cost of the animal. Any new certificates may not cost you anything - but it certainly costs the company.

Well yeah.. I was gonna buy it at Ebay or Amazon.com :P So that means, I cannot make a new birth certificate?

Yikes. I need to tell my store not to do that. I didn't know.
But what happens if you buy a bear from buildabear.com? Are you allowed to go in and make a birth certificate for it?

All furry friends that come from the BABW website will have a birth certificate mailed with it, complete with animal ID and key code.

Oh, okay. I've always gotten my bears in-store or off eBay. Thank you!

some stores in different states still do re-birthing because they never heard of the new policy.
