Just curious, though - what was your breaking point? Was it the Sultry Lion? The tweet from earlier? Or something else?

also my comp froze while i was typing this, hence the random gibberish
It was the lion

The alcoholic lion makes me want to boycott too, which is also saying a lot considering I just bought something there two months ago...

I don't know why it makes me so angry. I guess it's a combination of the fact that Build-a-Bear literally defined my childhood since the age of 7, and the fact that I'm training to work with kids now. BABW, both the store itself and their website which I used to spend hours browsing as a kid, was always such a safe, child-friendly space and this really feels like such a breech of that. And the company is probably like "lol it's just a plush bottle of alcohol and a few photos" but it represents more than that to me, it just goes against what BABW is supposed to be....

i don't think the lion is going to make kids automatically think "drinking is cool" but i do feel that it's oddly suggestive for a kids' retailer
i think this is going to be the first of many bizarre advertising campaigns for BABW. they're going to do some weird things in hopes that the general public will forget all about the pay your age fiasco.

walmart had many furries available for purchase, though did not notice any bab at ours.

bought some slippers on clearance, the bab ones were not easy to find. disney ones on clearance in place babw ones had been.

did not end up getting the panda slippers that i had wanted since came out on bearville. they were only in too small a size.

chewie and unicorns (slippers) for gifts. buying competitors' goods even in store that had some babw items of same type earlier.

chemical additions - not cool.

7. Expect Head Count: Request cannot be processed without a maximum headcount. Please check maximum room capacity by viewing room information in Bearville.

Bearville User Guide How to Schedule an Event Page 2 of 4
