Walmart Selling Fursuits?
« on: January 24, 2020, 04:26:25 pm »
It has finally happened. As a Valentine's Day novelty, Walmart is offering Teddy Bear suits for about $100 each in bulk bins placed in the seasonal section of the store. One can imagine someone being forced to spend a day in one as a fraternity initiation stunt.

Yipe!

Seriously?!

I was just at my local Wal-Mart and I didn't see it. 

As for spending the whole day in one at a fraternity,  yeah I think you totally nailed it ! You know someone will do it.

Seems furry fandom is getting more accepted

Apparently, the teddy bear suits are a hot item...

I guess that qualifies as a fursuit!

Muffled cries of "Help! Help! Get me outta this thing!"

I wonder if a lady would be thrilled to see her love appear in public at her front door as a huge teddy bear,  or if she would drop him like a hot coal!

The bear looks pretty cute to me. But that's just me. One of my dad's friend's kids actually used a panda stuffy as her costume for Halloween! I thought it was genius.

Well, local Wal-Mart store is back at it again.  Huge husky plushie on sale for Valentines day.  It has no Valentines related markings or such on it, and it might even be transformable into some sort of fursuit for a kid.  It is big enough.  I think it was like $120?

Gonna prowl the local store to see what's available in a few days.

Walmart may not see these as 'furry'.  Just stuffed animals. LOL  I'd give that bear a huggle!

I saw these for sale NOW at Walmart for Easter...
I think these are totally a fursuit, just a disguised version.

I noticed that they were made to fold flat for shipping, and thus are not as 3D as we would like.  But I bet with some padding or maybe a wire frame in the face to puff it out more, it will be great.
