A BUILD-A-BEAR employee has revealed the weirdest things customers ask for about her – including creepy men who come to the store for VERY weird reasons.
Janie is said to have worked in a North American branch of the store, Fabulous Favorite.
Talk TikTok she lists her ‘worst ‘customers’ from number one to fifth.
She said: “At number five, we have men who love Wonder Women who will walk in and out of our store because they feel embarrassed about wanting to buy it…thing that’s fine but they will ruin my conversion.
“At number four, we have people who want to pour their loved one’s ashes into a bear which is really allowed if it comes in a ziploc bag or something, but they really want to pour the ashes in.” that’s just unhygienic. .
“Number three are ponies (A man who is a big fan of My Little Pony).
“Not all of them, some of them are fine, but on many occasions I didn’t stitch them all like Pinkie Pie or Fluttershy so they could, um…
“That’s disgusting. Do not.
“Secondly the people who want us to stuff their stuffed animals are not Build-A-Bears because this is illegal and they will go crazy.
“And of course, coming in at number one were the men who made really nasty remarks about the hand movements you have to make to stuff a bear.”
She explains that the ashes can fall off the bears, causing the store to close, which is why they must be kept in a safe bag.
“We don’t hate it when the adults come in, we love it, so don’t be embarrassed,” she added.
Fabulous has reached out to Build-A-Bear for comment.
