Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing ones. While we’ve written before about the best jumbo stuffed animals, the best gifts to give your valentine, and the best Valentine’s Day chocolate according to chefs, here we’re breaking down the best giant teddy bears on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

“This big bear was such a hit as a birthday gift for our 6-year-old. It is just the right size (not so massive that he can’t carry him around, but definitely BIG!) and super soft and snuggly. This would make a sweet gift for any little one who loves stuffed animals.”

“Bought my son this giant teddy bear for his eighth birthday and he absolutely loves it! It is comfy, warm, and everything a giant stuffed bear should be! We are super pleased with this purchase and couldn’t have been happier about the price!”

“My great niece loved it! So soft and huggable!”

“My daughter absolutely loves this bear. She snuggles it, jumps on it, rolls on it … great buy!”

“The bear was an absolute hit! Bought this for a friend’s daughter’s birthday and was very very pleasantly surprised. The bear is extremely soft, plush, and well-made. No ‘factory smell’ at all! The box looks far smaller than the bear, but it is vacuum-packed inside, so when you open it, you’ll hear the rush of air and your bear will begin unfolding. It’s really neat to watch! Caveat: DO NOT open the thing if you need to get it back in the box!! It ain’t gonna happen!”
