Like amateur magicians, childhood toys are full of old gimmicks and appear to wince when sawn in half. Enlist a dependable new plaything instead with today’s Groupon to Stuffington Bear Factory. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get a teddy-bear-themed birthday party for six (a $150 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of teddy bears and stuffed animals.
The Stuffington Bear Factory’s staff and guests manufacture stuffed animals on-site from scratch, filling the store with plush creations and youthful joviality. The six-child birthday bash kicks off with a guided tour of the factory, providing an inside look at the process of creating bears and teaching them to carefully conceal their cognitive abilities. Partygoers make their own 12-inch bears from scratch before selecting ribbons and an outfit for the birthday child’s new stuffed pal. Kids celebrate their bears’ birth certificates during an hour in the birthday-party room, and adults can provide cake or refreshments or opt to purchase them for an additional fee ($50+, not included with today’s Groupon) or lead lessons in urban scavenging. On the way out, diminutive birthday zookeepers can add their handprints, names, and birthdays to the Stuffington Birthday Hall of Fame.
The friendly bear ($15.95), crafted from American-made materials and available in seven different colors, stretches out arms to hug those not celebrating a special occasion; the baby eaglet ($19.95) begs to be cradled while it recites the 50 states’ principle agricultural exports. The store also vends oversized stuffed animals such as the rose-bearing mama bear ($78.95), which plans to hibernate inside a bulky gift box.

The Stuffington Bear Factory's staff and guests manufacture stuffed animals on-site from scratch, filling the store with plush creations and youthful joviality. Toy companions are crafted from American-made materials and well trained to accept blame for crayon drawings on the living-room wall. Kids choose from a variety of fauna—such as bears, bunnies, horses, and monkeys—from which to expand their plush menageries. Before taking their friends to their new forever homes, tykes engorge their new charges with stuffing and stock their plush pals' wardrobes with T-shirts, dresses, and even Halloween costumes.
