    I still have my childhood teddy bear, but i do not sleep with him. I keep him on a shelf away from any possible harm from the cats doing anything like throwing up on him. icon_biggrin.gif

    I have never nor will I ever own a teddy bear.
    Then again, even during primary school I never believed in Santa or the easter bunny or tooth fairy so I think I was just a cold-hearted child.

    Indeed!
    Actually I sleep a lot better when I can snuggle up. When I was a kid with a teddybear, now with my man. Now that I'm single I only have my book with me icon_cry.gif. I can't imagine myself with any stuffed animal anymore.
    If I found out my boyfriend has a teddybear I'd find it kinda sweet but as soon as we are a couple I'm the only thing he can snuggle up with except when I'm away.

    So you sleep with a teddybear. What's his name? Or is it a rabbit?

    Yeah better than sleeping with you. I shiver with the thought of someone sleeping with you.

    Remember guys, this was a British survey. I doubt other countries would get the same results. I have NEVER encountered a US guy, or woman for that matter, who slept with a stuffed animal. They may have collected them for whimsical display purposes (my husband does), but never sleep with them.

    Um no... I do still have my stuffed animals I was given as a small child, but they are in a box in a closet. I have given some thought to dragging some of them out and putting them on a twin bed (which is rarely used) in one of my guest bedrooms.

    I do have 3 Teddy bears, two of them were given to me by my partner, one of them when we first started seeing each other at the beginning. "Auggie" would watch over me when my partner wasn't there (according to him) because we had mostly a long distance relationship. "Patches" is newer and was given to me in 2010 by my partner after I was in the hospital with a Staph infection. "Vermont boy" is a Vermont teddy bear made for me and sent by an admirer in 2011. I still don't know who sent it, but he's cool.

    All three of them sit on a leather chair in my family room and all looking toward the door.

    My reasoning is simple, it's my house and I'll do what I please. I don't, however, take any stuffed toys to bed.
    I can come up with other ideas for my bed than teddy bears..hahaha.
