Build-A-Bear is one of the most recognizable brands in the United States. The company is famous for allowing kids to choose and stuff their very own plush novelty toys. They’ve been a beloved company for gift-givers and tourists for years.

The stuffed animal giant recently posed a question that nobody seems to have been asking. Why should kids get to have all the fun? The problem has been addressed via the new Build-A-Bear After Dark line.

The new adult-themed teddy bears are specifically designed with grown-ups in mind. Some of them come in sexy outfits. Others appear to be way too into wine. According to the Build-A-Bear website, the idea is for the company to offer something for everyone.

“Who said stuffed animals were just for the kids? Why should they get to have all the fun? The Build-A-Bear stuffed animal gift collection has something for everyone—including stuffed animals for adults who are just kids at heart. From stuffed animals from your favorite movies and franchises to teddy bear gifts for adults celebrating life’s achievements, there are plenty of stuffed animals for adults to love and snuggle with.”


The new adult bears aren’t exactly explicit, but some of them do come with mature themes. Many of them are romantic. Several portray the fluffy friends drinking booze.

For anyone who is in the market for adult teddy bears that won’t be embarrassing to own, Build-A-Bear After Dark has it covered. We’ll see if the new line becomes a hit in the future. The company is hoping to expand its market with the new move. Teddy bears aren’t just for kids anymore.
