There's always the old "making a gift for a kid" alibi, too.
"Is this a gift for someone sir?"
Yes, its for ker..pi..scoo..zie..he,he
"OK! what color bow does Kerpiescoozie want??"

I just say it's for my niece, Zoe. It's easier to remember.

Plus, part two... that'd probably be about 20 bucks... so... there's that end too.

I've never in my life paid more than almost 20 bucks for a plush. I almost broke down and bought like a 30 dollar imported Freiza at a convention, and I had second thoughts about it.

You Know I think the first time I went to build a bear was with my wife. There seems to be less of a problem with that. I've also built a few bears for my class as well. Having kids of my own now makes it a whole lot easier but the girls really do wind up taking the stuffed animals for themselves. Another tip... Once you buy one register it. They will send you some really impressive coupons (sometimes for a free animal) from time to time. Worth it if they are looking at doing more Muppets.

Plushes are the cheapest things to make. It's basically a chinese sweat shop worker stuffing some beans or cotton in cheap fabric. IE: Modern Sesame 6" plushes at Target and Toys R Us...man those things look like fire hazard cheapo *expletive*

I have paid over $20 for plushes, but only for home made etsy/webcomic/anime con artist alley type ones or rare Kid Robot type stuff. I'm pretty selective with that stuff. I miss video game promo plushes when you'd preorder a game.

If they make Gonzo, then I have two words for Build-a-Bear;

Also, I WANT ME A SCOOOOOOOOOOOTEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If Scooter come out, I hope the green track jacket has "The Muppet Show" logo on it.
And I want THE ELECTRIC MAYHEM, BUNSEN, BEAKER, MAHNA MAHNA, THE SNOWTHS, SAM, THE SWINETREK CREW AND LEW ZEALAND!!!!!
