    *Stuffs teddy bear into closet*

    This is a stupid idea.

    I guess I can understand this to some extent. People go through a lot when you lose someone close. I can imagine a lot of parents who lose their children might do something like this.

    I still think it`s kinda wrong, but it would give some people who can`t let go a way of holding on. I still say it might be taking advantage of them a little though.

    I like how the website says:
    "Something soft and cozy for your loved ones or precious pets final resting place"

    Fido, Grandpa, you can just shove anything in there. Replace the ashes with candy on your kid`s next birthday, and bingo! A piñata.

    Wait I just noticed- the pouches are secured with velcro and then zippered into the bear.

    I would just give my child a teddy bear with the person`s or pet`s name stitched on the foot or something like that. They have some really neat stuff for ashes, though. When my uncle died, mom got some of his ashed put into a locket (specially designed for this) and gave it to my grandma. They also can take the person`s fingerprint and put it on this oval charm as a necklace.

    Those testimonials are very sad. I never much understood the fascination with the remains of the dead, but if I were cremated I would prefer a teddy bear over an urn any day.

    While I understand the motivation, this almost seems disrespectful to those who have passed on. I understand the want to hug Grandma even after she`s gone ... but I don`t know. Everyone has to go away sometimes, it`s a coping-with-loss thing.

    Yeah, I just looked at the testimonials. The first ~6 testimonials are from people who`ve lost children.

    "I just want to thank you for having such a product to put my sweet baby Alexis in. I will always hold this bear and know that it is my baby."

    It`s like I was saying, it is especially difficult to let go of a child when they go.

    I`m not making fun of this person or anything. I don`t think any less of her for saying that or buying one of these, I just wonder if it`s healthy for her. I really don`t know, it could help the grieving process along, or it could hinder it.

    Or it might just not matter in the grand scheme of things.

    "Our quality assures that your Huggable Urn
    will be around for many generations."

    Not fond of the whole thing, but if they are going to sell a huggable urn to house the remains of your dearly departed, they should have gone with a product that didn`t look like it came out of those toy-grabbing claw machines. What a tribute to your saintly, self-sacrificing, gave you life and everything you ever needed, was always there to clean up your vomit and wipe your butt, mother. The same manufacturer of the $3.99, "Be My Valentine", Wal-Mart teddy. Wholesale cost: $1.09. Guess the pouch is where the extra $89 comes into play... because plastic and Velcro are rationed these days.

    I have a better idea, go to any place that sells stuffed animals buy it for like what $20 max and when you get it home slice open the back put your loved one a a zip-lock and stuff em in there and sew / pin it up and VOILA huggable urn. *dripping sarcasm*

    Baalthazaq I agree about the losing children thing. And the thing you said about it helping or hindering the process. Well a friend of mine lost newborn twins who were born prematurly. They were buried and she goes there everyday to light candles and talk to them for hours. This is over a year later, EVERY day without fail.

    So what I`m saying I guess, is that having a teddy bear or a grave doesn`t really make much difference. People can still not let go by obsessive grave visiting, so I actually think it`s a good thing for parents whove lost children. I`m sure my friend would have liked the idea. And if they ever did feel ready to let go, they could always bury the teddy or something.

    The price however, is horrendous. I don`t see how it can be so much more expensive than a normal teddy considering the moderations that have been made can`t have cost that much

    But I dont think it would be suitable for anyone over the age of..I duno, whenever, deffinetly NOT teenagers. I know If I where to die today, and my mom bought one, I would deffinetly NOT want to be put in one of those. Ide rather have a grave or a Normal urn.

    Cute, but creepy.

    I wrote these people and asked her how could she take advantage of these people by charging them outrageous prices and here is what she wrote back:

    I sleep great! Thank you. By the way, a bear urn cost $90.00 and these are not at all like stuffed TOY animals. In fact I have to have a special factory make them because the toy factories will not make mine because of their high quality and my high standard specifications to details. It is very obvious that you know nothing about the funeral business and it is not nice to make judgments on others especially when this idea was given to me from God.
