    Default The merit of stuffed animals

    Just for fun, what do stuffed animals mean to you? Do you still keep them around?

    I still keep some of my old toys around... they bring back the fond memories of childhood. I used to give each one of them a name and a personality, almost like symbolic interactions.

    You mean a real one that's stuffed?

    I know I am about to break the stereotype here. I don't own a single stuffed animal to my knowledge. Crazy right?!? I had imaginary personalities to some of my toys as a small child though. I over hear my daughter playing with her dolls sometimes. I feel somewhat bad about it but I think it is a good way to see what is on her mind. I know for example she got her feelings hurt at school recently and she re-enacted the scenario with her barbies. We ended up going over the issue she was dealing with though later that evening. I don't know if that is wrong or not honestly. I don't think it is odd to keep anything that has sentimental value. Heck we have ourselves an INTP who has a big Pink Panther in all of his pics !!

    I have to say it... It means that my GF has taken over the apartment.

    It was so bad I had to set down a rule to keep her to only two stuffies on the bed. Apparently stuffies sum up her entire childhood. (She must of spent 50 years a child, and I think her childhood is better off boxed up and put in storage anyway.)

    I am, however, glad she kept the one I bought her on our first trip together.

    Yes they have merit as beauty that transcends our vain prejudices could be found in them.

    Heh. Quite true! Those things scare me.

    I find it very comforting to snuggle a stuffed toy. It's more comforting to snuggle a real animal. And even more comforting to snuggle a person. But if you lack a person or an animal, a toy is better than nothing.

    I own a number of stuffed animals (fake ones), but they are mostly in storage. They represent childhood to me, and I keep them for my future children. They tickle the eyes and feel soft to touch. They are just fun little treats to have around.
