Customers on Amazon have been receiving a serious surprise when they order a £83 teddy bear advertised as standing at a 6ft 5in tall.

Although from the pictures on the online retailers website, the Joyfay Giant Teddy Bear looks like a far larger version of your average cuddly toy, there's a reason for the bear's height that only becomes apparent when it's delivered.

See, the tallness of the teddy isn't due to it simply being an over-proportioned Average Joe bear, an entire four foot of its overall height is due to its incredibly long legs.

One customer wrote: "All of the pictures are taken at angles so you can't see that the bear is all legs. It's disproportional and creepy. I feel deceived by the pictures."

Another added: "Hideous! The legs are like 4 feet long making the bear look like a creepy gummy thing. I got this for Valentine's Day and would have rather had a cheaper more proportional bear, I mean this isn't even cute."

But the bear has been picking up traction on social media, with a number of people posting images of it, leading to it going viral:

Even though the suppliers have clearly been using some trickery of the camera in the pictures, the bear still has a 4.6 rating on the website, presumably because it's absolutely hilarious and looks so chill in the photos.

Plus, what's wrong with being lanky anyway, as one five star reviewer put it: "My boyfriend got my this for our anniversary and it is just amazing! It is so soft and very cute. Its legs are a little long and disproportionate but that isn't going to stop me from loving it."
