The only way to get one now is to try to see if your store allows you to take an old animal before 2007 to get a new birth certificate made for it and that would give you choice or like a cookie monster or big bird animal
A lot of stores will not let you re-birth or make a new certificate for an old bear.
My store does not allow this to be done cause they want to make the sales from new animals and have to worry about how many sales the store does
Some stores will do that but you better call your store to make sure first

i know my store will not let you which is very sad to me because i have 5 animals that i got at thrift stores and can not rebirth them they will not even let you pay for a new certificate which i think they should let you. but they will let you re stuff them

Yes PriscillaBallerina is right but I think there is another way, if you live in a continet or place where they do not have that bear avaliable online for you than you can pick your bear I am not sure though because my friend did that and she lives in Africa(I think)

Certain bears have open certificates and certain ones don't. If the bear doesn't have an online version of itself then it'll be an open certificate and you'll be able to just pick any bear. So that means super new bears that haven't been programmed into the system yet, or bears that are from before BABV time. I don't think there are any of those right now.

One way that you can get something similar to an open certificate is when you "rebirth" a build-a-bear, you'll be able to pick any bear from the computers in the BABW, so if you were to pick a bear that's not in the BABV system or is a really old bear that you can't get anymore then you'll get an open certificate when you put the code onto BABV.

There are only two official ways to get an open certificate:
1) The bear you choose is not available on BABV.
2) You are lucky enough to get an open certificate. Besides reason #1, some random furry friends in the entire BABW inventory have open certificates. You can't tell if it is open or not until you bring your furry friend to life.

Good luck! Just hope for the best.

If you have a webpass thing, I think you can get one, or if you have a older bear (That you got in really late 2007, or early 2008), or you just have good luck.
