This review for Trumpy Bear is going to be a bit different than most reviews, but then again Trumpy Bear is a different type of product than most products that we’ve reviewed.
How Trumpy Bear Was Introduced to the Public?
Trumpy bear was introduced to the public through a rather strange commercial.
In fact, the commercial for this stuffed bear was so out there that it left the public wondering if Trumpy Bear was a real stuffed bear or simply a political spoof.
As it turns out it is a real product, that is a bit of a spoof or a joke. The commercial aired in July of 2017, but sales of Trumpy bear didn’t really take off until around Christmas. It appears that sales of this bear go up every holiday season.
What Trumpy Bear Looks Like?
