(CNN) – Build-A-Bear’s “Pay Your Age” is back, but with some new rules.

Last year, thousands of shoppers stood in long lines outside stores to get their hands on a furry friend, prompting some stores to stop accepting customers over safety concerns.

This year, shoppers will need to sign up on the Build-A-Bear website for a chance to get a ticket.

If you’re one of the 200,000 lucky shoppers, you’ll be able to ‘pay your age’ on select days between June 24th and June 28th.

If you want a chance to win, you have until June 16th to sign up. Winners will be notified by June 21st.

Among those who sign up for tickets, 10 will be chosen to win a Build-A-Bear birthday party experience.
