You are thinking of buying a giant teddy bear to give someone special for the holidays, and so you jump on Amazon to have a look around. You find a 6.5-foot-tall Giant Teddy Bear made by Joyfay, selling for $110. Maybe you think this is just what you are looking for, at a great price. The description seems innocent enough:
MORE TO LOVE: The Joyfay teddy bear weighs in at 6.5 feet and 18 lbs. No light weights here. This heavyweight offers more huggability than your average bear. Kids and adults alike love to cuddle up with the soft silky giant.
Bu then you pause for a moment, and scroll down to read the reviews. That is when you discover that the exact proportions of this seemingly cute and cuddly, stuffed and fluffy white teddy bear are a bit off...
"Big @$$ Bear With Long @$$ Legs"
Writer and New Yorker Ron Cacace puts it succinctly: "I am seriously considering buying the big ass bear with long ass legs"

One concerned citizen questions the safety and sincerity of such a large Valentine gift: "Why are the legs so long? Is your valentine planning to stalk you in it after he gets dumped? Serial teddy bear killer"

Some reviews are great.
With over 100 reviews each for the white and brown giant teddy bear, and an average 4.5 stars out of 5, you would think people are quite happy with their purchase.

"Worth my granddaughter's love"
And some reviews are not so great.
"Hideous! The legs are like 4 feet long making the bear look like a creepy gumby thing."
"All of the pictures are taken at angles so you can't see that the bear is all legs. It's [disproportional] and creepy. I feel [deceived] by the pictures. Considering returning."
This Youtube review is hilarious.
Turns out quite a few people own the bear already.
my family got me a big teddy bear and look how long the legs are 😂 https://t.co/wkHbzzIvxW— anna ☄️ (@anna ☄️)1497733045.0

@braddybb @lanesainty But if you stand it up. It doesn’t look too out of proportion... does it? https://t.co/cC6bQHil1K— ShayneRarma (@ShayneRarma)1510285613.0
@ShayneRarma @braddybb @lanesainty I don't want to alarm you but 100% there is a person inside that bear— escalator to nowhere (@escalator to nowhere)1510285852.0
