My kids want big $40 bears for Valentine's day. They are 12 and 15 for goodness sake. I think its a waste of money. I can afford it. What do you think?

Stuffed animals are crap to me, so no..i wouldn't get them. I mean they do nothing but sit there, and look cute. Boringgg.

I would not get them a bear either , but I am cheap. I'd rather get them something they get use out of

I would never spend that much for stuffed animal. For that amount, you can get video games, go to the movies, go out to dinner, take him shopping for clothes, etc.

I know. Just another clutterer.

Pics! Are they Build-a-bears? It would depend for me. I've seen big bears that can be lounged on like a bean bag...id pay $40 for that. They are cute!

I hate stuffed animals.  IMO they are such a waste of money.  I would not even consider for a moment spending $80 on valentine's day for a 12 and 15 year old.

I asked them if they wanted money instead and they said no!
