Stuffed animals are cute and sweet, thus are considered as our ideal companion. Actually, most stuffed animals were invented to be a toy for small children, but now they have conquered folks of all ages! Both kids and old people want the companion-sometimes they can talk to, take care of and love.Some parents are quite busy for work and the toys are considered as ideal companion to children, thus many children have their plush toys at small ages.
Unsimilar to pets, stuffed toys are more easy to play and talk with. They are not real, you don't need to worry about the hygiene and safety. Many children would love to hug them to sleep rather than a dirty pet. With a stuffed toy, you will never feel lonely even if you are alone. So for people who expect companion, getting rid of the stuffed animals is impossible.

I'm 40 years old, and have a LARGE collection of stuffed animals.  And, it's still growing!   Grin  I also sell stuffed animals on eBay.  They are my favorite thing to sell.  As a child, I had so many stuffed animals they filled a walk in closet floor to ceiling, and you couldn't even step inside the closet.  Grin There is a lady at my grandma's nursing home that carries around a baby doll.  It's always wrapped in a blanket, and she tends to it lovingly.  My youngest son, whom is 16yrs old now, still has his favorite stuffed animal from when he was little.  He plans on keeping it too.  My oldest son, whom is 21yrs old, has his favorite stuffed animal from when he was little on his bed.  I love stuffed animals so much, I also make them.  So, I'm for stuffed animals all day, every day.   Smiley

I prefer real animals to stuffed ones (we've got a dog and three cats), but I have a fair amount of stuffed ones too.  I've got a plastic bag full of smaller critters (McDonald's Build-a-Bear Workshop, Beanie Babies, etc.) as well as some larger pieces.  I have more interest in plush dolls (Groovy Girls, Ty Beanie Boppers, etc.), than animals, but I'm more of an action figure and doll kind of guy in general when it comes to toys.

I don't really do anything with my stuffed animals, they just kind of sit there and collect dust.  I don't get rid of any simply because I'm a hoarder. Tongue

I'll admit that as kid I carried my fav floppy ear dog around until it needed new ears.
The stuffed animals I have now are more for examples of how mass pro does things.
Kind of a similar topic-u think?
