Summer bought her dad a stuffed bear for Christmas that plays the voice of his late mother. He cried after hearing it in the viral TikTok video.
Summer Hammond bought her father a sweet Build-A-Bear teddy bear that played the sound of her father's late mother saying, "hello darling." Her father's emotional reaction to this heartfelt gift shows that we never forget the people that are taken away from us. The woman stated on her TikTok account, "My grandma passed away this summer, so we decided to get my dad a bear that had her voice inside." When her dad opened the gift he thought that it was a joke, per Comic Sands. In the video, he can be heard saying, "What are you having a laugh... a Build-A-Bear?" He wasn't ready for the surprise his daughter had in store for him with this Christmas gift.
There was a "birth certificate" that came with the bear saying that the name of the animal is, "Milk Biscuit." Hammond clarified that this was an inside joke between their family. The bear smelled like bubblegum and was white in colors, as seen in the video. Hammond asked her dad to press his paw after a few seconds and that's when her father heard his mother's voice saying, "Hello, darling!" He was shocked at this sudden voice and then was completely overwhelmed with emotions. He cried and kept pressing the bear's paw to hear his mother's voice again and again. Hammond's mother could be seen asking her children to hug their father as he was bursting into tears.
