    Inverse head-and-shoulders pattern on this one, sitting at support right now on the right shoulder. Looks like a decent entry with room to run up to the 200MA for about a 15% gain. Not a great risk/reward in my opinion though as if it breaks this support line, could easily see $8 again.

    Found the floor at 3.xx
    Hey, if ETSY can fly to all time highs, this should at least be able to survive too right? Amazon can't take the bear building business.

    Ive always wondered how this company does. Never checked on their financials, but I have been there enough with my kids. You get a "pay your age" deal with kids, so every year they get one. There is a pretty good line on weekends to get your bear stuffed and set up.

    Im not sure what kind of growth prospects they have though, this is a tough business to expand in the way that most shareholders like.

    I saw today that BBW has a 30% growth rate forecast. "For a bricks and mortar store?" Turns out they have a website and they sell stuff already made (already stuffed, as they like to say). I'm also seeing a lot of Disney-related items, guess they've got a deal.

    Build-A-Bear’s stuffed animals targeting “kidults” — with some dressed in bikinis and others wearing a Hugh Hefner-style robe while pouring champagne — has led some critics to slam the child-friendly company.

    The St. Louis, Mo.-based toy company rolled out the risque accessories for their stuffed bears as part of a Valentine’s Day promotion.

    The seemingly inappropriate attire also includes a black slip dress, satin robes and pajamas, leopard heart boxers and gold strap heels.

    Another shirt reads the word “ZADDY” — a slang term for an attractive older man.
