Nothing says "I Love you" like this Bear Sleeping Bag... wait. Strike that. This is terrifying!!

It's that time of year when everyone is trying to come up with the perfect gift for their friends and loved ones. I personally am a big fan of homemade gifts and practical things I would use.

I'm not going to lie. I shudder every year at the thought of all the chotchke's and random toys that lack a purpose that Ellie will get from 'Santa'. I'd much rather buy books and clothes and fun games, then micro sized barbie shoes I know the cat will eat, or a $50 set of mini sized grocery store items with eyes on them.

Seriously. Can someone please tell me, what the heck ARE Shopkins?? Are they aliens? Are they food? I don't get it.

In my search for the perfect gift, I came across the Bear Sleeping Bag. It literally looks like a bear is eating you. And why does it have teeth?!? I'm not talking soft, squishy, fabric teeth. These are hard plastic replicas of actual bear teeth!

My lovely roomate Meredythe thinks this would be a great present for Ellie, but I think it's terrifying. What do you think? Would you buy this for your child?
