Alright, we all know that Costco is pretty awesome, especially for its free samples, but equally awesome is its giant sitting plush bear. And by giant, I mean 53″. It’s certainly taller than a little kid, and it’s almost as tall as me!
Large stuffed animals are tough to find, and when they are available, they are quite pricey. However, Costco currently carries 53″ sitting plush bears for only $29.99 in stores and $45.99 online (includes shipping and handling). The bears are suitable for children ages 3 and older and come in two colors—cream and espresso.
Not only are the bears giant, but they are also soft, cuddly, and high-quality, making them so adorably huggable! Not only that, for a giant plush, these bears are pretty light. What can beat the classic teddy bear in its life-size form?
Honestly, my friend Berna and I went to the Costco in Cypress yesterday just so we could see the giant teddy bears. Yes, we were really bored, and yes, we also love cute and cuddly things. However, the giant teddy bear was not the only giant deal we found.
There were 48″ Disney plush characters for only $35.99 in store only. The only characters available were Mickey and Minnie and are suitable for children ages 2 and older. Where else can you find any giant Disney plush of that size at such a price? Not surprisingly though, they are not as cuddly as the giant teddy bears since they are neither as soft nor as wide in width. Despite those factors, they are still pretty adorable and soft enough to be huggable!
We gave into our temptations and walked out of Costco with the giant cream-colored bear. I admit, it is an unnecessary luxury item, but how could we resist, especially with the idea of driving around with it in the car.
Out of amusement we took a few photos:
We would have taken more photos, but a woman was waiting for us to leave, and we ended up having to put it in the middle back seat since its head is so huge that it blocks part of the back windshield.
You are never too old for stuffed animals! Bring out your inner child at Costco!
