I have a stuffed bat and a giant fox.  They used to stay on my bed, I just moved out of my apartment, so I’m not sure what I’ll do with them in FI’s apartment.

Lol I still have a few out in the open, some in boxes, and some in our storage unit. I don’t ever want to get rid of them.

@Stace126:  DH brought 3 stuffed animals with him when we moved in together!

And I had one from childhood, and two he’s gotten me!

Though DH says he once dated a girl who collected Build-A-Bears, and had HUNDREDS of them, and that it was a teensy bit creepy.

I hate stuffed animals and thankfully DH knows and has never given me one. I do have 2 or 3 ice kept over the years but they’re in a box. Every time I try and throw them away I can’t. I guess now that baby is on the way ill give them to him/her

I have my teddy bear and blanket, mustache bear, and a stuffed cat from when I was little.  Okay I’ll be honest — I slept with the teddy bear and blanket well into my 20s.  It sounds REALLY weird but it was how I was physically comfortable sleeping.  My husband and I were laughing about that a few weeks ago and so I brought them out (I keep them in a plastic tub in a closet) and I was trying to figure out what was so damn comfortable about it!  

Mustache bear is a stuffed bear that my mom sewed a mouth onto and left whiskers for, so that became its name.

 

Edited: I thought “moustache” looked funny…it’s a varient spelling of mustache.  So I changed it.  =)

 

 

I think I might get a fire proof box for them.  They’re up there with my cat, my computer, my grandmother’s quilts, and my X-Files DVDs for things I’d save in a fire.

I don’t think it’s wierd…I see stuffed animals at many an adult’s house! I think most everyone understands sentimental attachments. I gave the few I had to my daughter. I do still have my My Buddy doll, though, and he was stuffed in a box from when we moved 2 years ago! I found him and put his clothes in the wash and I need to clean his facce, but you better believe my daughter will have him and love him forever! HA.

I have two stuffed animals that I took with me when I moved out of my parent’s house. I admittedly sleep with one of them occasionally and they both get put on the bed when I make it in the morning. I know it’s a bit strange that at 23 years old I still sleep with a stuffed animal but I like to have something on both sides of me cuddled up tight when I go to sleep so I’m not sure if I will ever get over my stuffed animal phase or not. I will definitely never get rid of these two stuffed animals.

@MrsBeck:  I had to make a conscious decision that I would no longer sleep with mine.  The summer I turned 25 was when I did that…so it may yet happen for you.  If you decide you want to retire them, you could try pillows instead.  Poor stuffed animals…lol.

still sleep with my teddy bear from infancy, except when FI is over, and have 3 other stuffies that I have still in my possession, on from childhood that is packed away, and two I was given as gifts from my mom and FI that are on display. I don’t think I’ll ever part with them, they’re not in the way and very sentimental. I actually have one “fun shelf”, a very high floating shelf that has a collection of toys and knick knacks and art from childhood through adolescence. It’s less than a dozen items and they all have significance, I think its a nice way for me to not totally tuck away my inner kid!

Teddy still sleeps on the bed next to me. She’s between my pillow and nightstand. That’s how it’s going to be forever and ever, and DH is laughingly okay with it since I don’t sleep with her cuddled up between us or anything.

My stuffed animals sort of float around our appartment.  The important ones are on the bookshelf next to my side of the bed.  The rest of them are in bags in our guestroom, but take turns, if you will, hanging out on the couch to keep me company when no one else is home.  We also have a pair of stuffed penguins that I got at the start of our relationship as a gift for my fiance before he went off to Africa on a school service project, and which he later used to propose with, that will be a part of our wedding (they are going to sit on our cake table in tiny versions of the beach chairs that are all around our venue).

FI is… tolerant. There are two stuffed animals on our bed right now. One is a small otter he gave me and the other is my childhood stuffed rabbit. He doesn’t particularly love it, but has been informed that the rabbit entered my life in 1985. He didn’t enter it until 2006. Such is life. One of my cousins recieved a package from her parents on her honeymoon… it was her childhood stuffled lamb.  For serious. My family is a little odd.
