Cool Too Much for the Bear?

When it comes down to it, the bear usually costs $25 if not a bit more, and then the outfit, shoes, voice boxes, etc. Cost extra, so don't you think paying $25 plus, in the $40-60 range, is a bit TOO much for a stuffed animal? Or do you think it is worth it?

I know I have 2 bears, one I got lucky with, and got for $4.00 at a swap meet, and the other I got on clearance for like $18 or 16 bucks I forgot how much haha. So I saved a bit on my bears with my finds.

But in general, I have always thought Build a Bear's bears of any kind and their outfits and all the other add-on's is a bit too much money. But what do you think?

The bear used to be about $15-$18, they upped their prices. It's a bit too much now.

I think it is pretty pricy, especially when there's not even the added benefit of bringing your bears to life on Bearville anymore. :c
The cheaper bears ($10-$15) aren't bad, but there aren't very many of them, sadly.

I never really bothered with voice boxes or outfits because of the price, unless it was for a special reason (like a gift or something like that).

I agree that BABW can be a little too pricey, especially as Meghan said since you can't bring them to live on Bearville anymore. The last time I went (last August), it cost over $40 to get the bear I wanted and an outfit to go with it, and that was with a sale going on! The prices definitely affect how much I buy at the store, I rarely buy things there because it is so expensive.

Yeah, it ***** with the pricing system they have set-up. But what can you do? You either dish out the money and not let it bother you, or not buy anything lol.

yes, they get more and more expensive and I find less cute bears now AND we can't bring them to life any longer... so bad deal now.

usually costs me about $40 for a bear and outfit at the store... bears are priced about right but the outfits are VERY expensive.
