This would be a really bad idea if you had a dog in the house that liked to chew stuffed animals.

Yes, I would LOVE to know my parents ashes are in my teddy bear....

But it is a pretty good idea. If you ever feel lonely, hug it talk to it, etc. Just don`t give it to your dog :-)

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. If you have a problem talk to him. Also talk to all of the Mothers and Fathers who have have lost a child and how much they love my bears. They could not think of putting their child in some box!! or vase! I have one family that has FOUR of my bears because they have lost four children.
Watch what you say because God has a way that this will come back to you 10 fold. Maybe you should be s

I see how mothers/fathers who have lost their BABIES would want this.

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.

Its a bit creepy, but the testimonials reduced me to tears. Its a sweet idea though, more for pets rather than children, but if someone lost a young baby then I suppose its fair enough..

Creeeeeeepy... What would inspire a person to do that? "Hey, when I die, I want you to put me in a teddy bear, okay?" That`s more than a little scary.

i would probablt get one for my pet but not for an actual person unless it was something they really wanted. I mean putting your loved pets ashes in a teddy bear would be a nice sentiment but putting grandpappy`s ashes in there might be jusrt a tad wrong

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

there are so many psychological problems waiting to be stoked here...as some people have pointed out, it`s not really healthy, and yea, possessed dolls anyone? and i can imagine a serial killer keeping his victims...just wait, instead of pictures, they`re gonna do "likenesses" of the deceased themselves, so you`ll have actual little china dolls resembling your relatives. haha.

Talk about taking advantage of a sad situation. I mean $90 to $120 for a stuffed bear to put your loved ones ashes in??
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*

Seriously, just throw my body off a cliff after I die. Better than rotting a hole or burned alive. Rather give back to the environment like God intended.

I think it`s a good idea. Especially if it`s a child`s ashes.

(p.s. If your dog chews on stuffed animals, keep it away from the dog. problem solved. duh.)

"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.

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.

I think this would be perfect for a horror movie. The cremated person is possesed, so the bear starts going on a killing spree.

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.

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.

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.

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.

That`s just your culture talking. You have an idea of what it is to respect the dead, but respect is abstract. Important, but abstract.

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.

Oh that`s just the perfect canidate for a horror movie. I can just see that Teddy Bear (With grandpa right inside) staring you right down as you sleep. Oh, great, now I won`t be able to go back to sleep, nor look at the teddy bear I actually DO have.

*Stuffs teddy bear into closet*

This is a stupid idea.
