A new grandfather bought the biggest teddy bear in the shop for his five-month-old granddaughter.

A series of tweets by Sabrina Gonzalez have gone viral since she shared a photo of the mammoth 8ft tall bear her father bought for her daughter.

Gonzalez, from California, commented on a photo that her dad posted to Facebook of the giant bears that are for sale where he works saying, “Maddie needs one of those,” referring to her daughter Madeline Jane.

It didn’t take long for her father to get the message, sending her a photo a few minutes later of him hauling the teddy into his car.

Gonzalez posted two photos to Twitter of Madeline perched on top of the bear (she's being held up from behind) and snuggled up in his foot in grandpa’s house later that day, showing the sheer scale of the cuddly toy.

“Grandpa bought her a teddy bear,” wrote Gonzalez alongside the photos, which have now been retweeted over 41,000 times.

"This is the most precious thing I have ever seen!" wrote one user, with another saying, "Your wonderful daughter and her new bear made my Monday just a little sweeter."
