Parents hate Target’s 92-inch plush teddy bear as a Christmas present
Parents are telling family and friends not to give their kids this one bargain target toy for Christmas: ‘Get this for your worst enemies’
- Parents have revealed the one gift they don’t want their kids to get
- A giant 92-inch plush teddy bear from Target has been dubbed the “dust collector.”
- The product is “perfect for snuggling” and retails for $299 with a $250 delivery fee
- But on Facebook, parents hated the idea of this gift
When it comes to Christmas gifts, there’s one gift parents don’t want their kids to give this year.
An Australian mother-of-two pointed out that Target is selling a giant 92-inch plush teddy bear but was quick slammed by others on Facebook.
The toy, which was reduced to $299 from $999, was quickly dubbed a “terrible dust collector” that would be difficult to store.
According to Target’s website, the “ultra plush” teddy towers over a small child and promises “perfect for cuddling.”
Target now sells a giant 92-inch teddy bear that towers over kids (pictured). But when the picture was shared on Facebook, the parents were quick to label the product a “terrible” gift that would just sit in the corner “collecting dust”.
The toy has been reduced from $999 to $299, along with free shipping of $250 due to the size
A picture of the FAO Schwarz Toy teddy bear was shared on the Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook group, where hundreds shared their thoughts on the purchase.
“Only your worst enemy would give you this,” one person wrote.
“You buy this for my kid and I’ll give your kid slime every birthday and Christmas until you ask for forgiveness,” wrote another parent.
A third asked, “And where would you keep that dust collector?”
“Only your worst enemy would give you this,” one person wrote on Facebook, while another said, “You’re buying this for my kid and I give your kid slime every birthday and Christmas until you ask for forgiveness.”
One parent said they wouldn’t even want this for free, and another regretted that the supplier had to carry the giant toy.
On top of the toy’s price, customers are charged a $250 delivery fee, which also seems outrageous.
Others were incredulous about the toy’s original price.
“But who pays $1,000 for a teddy? I couldn’t even justify $300 or $100 for that matter,” said one woman.
The release of the giant teddy comes after Costco launched similar giant products across stores.
Another woman expressed concern about the enormous volume the toys will take up in the landfill.
“I’m sick of seeing giant stuffed animals being made available for the council to clean up. Future landfill,” she wrote.
Despite the negative connotations, one customer who bought the bear left a positive review on Target’s website.
“Bear fun! This is a fantastic oversized novelty. It’s huge! Great quality and as advertised,” the person wrote.
