I can't tell you how many times I have seen customers at Costco stop and fondle that thing.  Take pictures, selfies, with the kids.  But I have never seen anybody actually buy one of those.  Congratulations, but it raises a question: From now on, where do you watch TV (no more space in the living room)?

Your book was hugely helpful in calling this beast in.  With that said....the endless amounts of bait in the general area is probably why he came in.   Got him about 50 yards from the bakery.   :chuckle:

Buying this thing was hugely embarrassing.....stuffing the thing in a cart and walking through a busy store was a nightmare.  Everyone was stopping to watch and commenting as I walked by.  The one good thing.....everyone was saying, "there is going to be one happy kid."  I really hope so, because then it was all worth it. 

This thing will be caged in my duaghters room.  It will never come out, and if it does.....it will die (the bear)!!  I don't think she is big enough or strong enough to move it....it is huge.   :chuckle:

That was not what I expected. Too funny. I have been trying to get a blonde phase bear for years but mostly see dinks. That thing is huge!

I don't know, I'm betting if you locked a "physical bear" up in her room with her, it just might get a little exciting?

LOL

Cool bear!
