They have also slashed up to 50 per cent off the clothing for the teddy's which means you can even treat the little ones to a whole new wardrobe for their new favourite teddy.

One of the best deals in the sale is the reduced prices of the retailers limited edition Mickey Mouse toys that were released to celebrate Mickey's 90th Birthday.

The character toys are usually priced at £24 but thanks to the sale they have all been reduced to £14.

You could treat yourself to the original Mickey Mouse with a commemorative anniversary logo on his paw, or they can go for the original steamboat mouse in black and white.

Thankfully this sale is based online and won't cause you as many problems as their pay your age promotion earlier this year.

The idea was that children could pick up a bear or stuffed toy and pay just the pound equivalent of their age, meaning one-year-olds could grab a bear for just £1, a two-year-old for £2 etc.

But of course because there were so many savings to be had, parents and children ended up queuing outside Build-A-Bear stores for hours to snag themselves a bargain.

Which led to plenty of people being turned away due to 'safety concerns'.

The chaos has led to some of the stores to close, with Build-A-Bear posting the following statement to it's Facebook: "The response to our Pay Your Age Day event at all of our U.K locations has been overwhelming and unprecedented in our 21-year-history.

"The crowds have greatly exceeded out expectations and, per local authorities, queues are at capacity and we cannot accept additional Guests due to extreme crowds and safety concerns.

"We understand our Guests are disappointed, and we are working to address the situation.

"We will reach out directly to our valued Guests as soon as possible."
