Mom Sabrina Gonzalez shared photos of the comically large bear to Twitter, where they instantly went viral.

Gonzalez told BuzzFeed News that her dad works at a Costco in San Jose, California. When he posted a photo of himself posing with the bears to Facebook, Sabrina commented on the photo jokingly saying her daughter, Madeline, "needs one of those."

Her dad took it to heart, transporting the giant bear in a truck for his beloved granddaughter.

From the looks of it, Madeline loves her new toy. Sabrina posted a video of Madeline’s reaction, showing her giggling at the bear.

"This is her reaction every time I bring her up to the bear," Gonzalez said.
