Thumbs down Ginger Breads were already stuffed! D:

So I went to BABW today, to take advantage of the $5 ginger bread man thingy. I was disappointed to see that they were all in a bin, and they said $5. You couldn't stuff them- they were already stuffed. Not only that, it seemed like you couldn't make a birth certificate. I didn't get one, because I wanted the authentic experience- stuffing the bear, and putting a heart.

Nowhere on the site or email did it specify that they would be pre-stuffed. The store was legit empty, and the mall wasn't a madhouse. Why BABW, WHY? D:

(P.S. this wasn't my "home store".. this was at a mall way on the other side of the city. At my home store, this would have never happened.. since I know the staff "oh too well")

very disappointed... feel like writing a letter to someone about this. It's not one of those "lack of knowledge " things, it's more of a "WHY?!" thing.

If you look at the product description on the BABW site for each gingerbread it says that's it's pre-stuffed.

Quote:
Fun and festive, this gingerbread treat will make the holidays sweet! Includes headband! Personalize this stuffed animal with clothes and accessories to make the perfect gift.

This item cannot be purchased unstuffed. Sounds cannot be placed inside this pre-stuffed item.
You can make birth certificates for them, though, just like any other bear.

The sad part was that they ripped off the part you scan at the computer. They would mark it $5 at the register.

Also, it didn't say that for me on the email, nor on the site.

what's even worse: In the UK, they were not available online at all, and sold out in the shops. So great "offer".
I did know they were pre-stuffed though.

I hope the pre-stuffed bears is just a one time thing.
My sister got the bears today and she didn't get a certificate either.

It says clearly it's pre-stuffed.
Though I don't like that we can't get a certificate.
