On Thursday, Build-A-Bear had to close stores across the country after crowds of parents and children became too large for the retailer to handle.

In a post on the Build-A-Bear website, the company said they were seeing “longer than expected lines and large crowds” for the event.

Lines were shutdown at stores for safety concerns, the company said in a separate post on Facebook.
