Hudson Valley Retailer Offering ‘After Dark’ Teddy Bears
If you're a parent, chances are you've tried to hurry your kids by this store in the mall at one point or another...I know I have. Once in a while Build-A-Bear is a fun treat, but my kid wants to create her own stuffed masterpiece anytime she sees the place.
Anyway, it looks like Build A Bear is targeting a different audience these days, offering their "After Dark" collection for customers 18 and up. According to a story published by NBC News, the "After Dark" collection includes bears drinking wine and wearing little more than boxers - scandalous. According to NBC,
The bears don't appear to cross the line into overtly raunchy. Most of them are holding wine, dressed in nothing but boxers or wearing shirts that declare "I Want to Take You Out."
If you're slacking in the Valentine's Day gift department, you may want to pay attention here. Better late than never, right?
So how do you get your paws on one? Right now it looks like us adults, and I use that word loosely, have to find the after hours bears on their website, and certify that we are 18 years and up by clicking a check box on the site. Once there, you can browse the bear options. When you're scrolling through this particular collection, you'll find some adorable stuffed animals with clever sayings like "it's wine o'clock somewhere," "cozy as fluff," and "I like the crepe out of you" - the risqué part comes when you hover over the stuffy and it shows them sans clothing!
Who said stuffed animals were just for the kids? Why should they get to have all the fun? - that's what the promo from the official Build-A-Bear site says. To that we say... let the fun begin!
