Holy Shit, This Grandpa Just Gave His Granddaughter A Comically Big Teddy Bear

"That's a big ass teddy bear."

Posted on

Last Friday, Gonzalez's dad, who works at Costco, posted a photo of himself in front of a shipment of comically ginormous teddy bears. Gonzalez jokingly commented on the photo saying Madeline "needs one of those."


Grandpa apparently didn't take it as a joke, because "next thing I know, I receive a text from him saying he bought her one," Gonzalez told BuzzFeed News. He sent her photos of himself trying to transport the huge bear through Costco, and to his truck.


Gonzalez said Madeline gets "all smiley" whenever she's around the bear.

@brina_lioness this is her reaction every time I bring her up to the bear 😂😂😍

"I brought the bear up to her face and she was grabbing it," she recalled the first time Madeline met her new friend.

She adds that she's not too concerned about the teddy bear's size — even though it takes up the entire room — but she will be closely watching her daughter playing with the bear "so it doesn't fall on her or anything," she said.

"Madeline absolutely loves it, and it's so funny seeing her next to it," she said.
