    My blankets were hand-me-downs that were then handed down to my brother. I had a few stuffed animals laying around, but everything has been given to my niece now (she’s almost 2). She’ll appreciate it more and I’d rather her play with them than let them collect dust somewhere.

    Blue Teddy and Blanky (from when I was 3 years old) stay on my bed! Sometimes i sleep with them sometimes I put them on the nightstand….Im 31 now   For my wedding im dressing him in a tux with a sign that says “Ring Bearer” as a joke since everyone in the family knows about and jokes about Blue Teddy!

    Yup, my blanket has traveled across many states with me.  My husband’s favorite stuffed animal from childhood recently joined us too so now he can’t make fun of me.  🙂

    MrsBuesleBee:  That is the best reply ever.  I laughed so hard (but also completely agree)!

    Yes, in storage at my parents’ house.  I could never throw them away! My favorite doll as a child was a plush troll doll (plush body, plastic troll head) I named Briar Rose, the name Aurora has in Sleeping Beauty when she’s living in the woods with the fairies. I’m hoping to give her to my kids one day.

    Hell yes!  I got Uni the stuffed unicorn from my long-deceased grandmother for my 3rd birthday and he’s still on my bedstand now at age 32.  He got lost in a storage unit for about a year and a half and I was freaking the fuck out.  My husband knows Uni was around long before him so he keeps his trap shut 😉

    MrsBuesleBee:  ha!  awesome.

    I have my stuffed mouse with yellowpolka dots overalls that I’ve kept for 23 years. It’s in the garage in a box but I will never get rid of it.

    I loved it so much while growing up. I even gave him a hair treatment of tuna oil because I thought he deserved it I have curly hair and my mama always used some sort of smoothing oil (never tuna ha!) on my hair so I thought he needed that as well (I was 4-5 at the time).

    I have my teddy bear that I still sleep with! My grandma gave her to me when I was just a month old – she used to be bigger than I was! I took her everywhere with me when I was younger. FI never really connected with any of his childhood things, so he thinks I’m a little nutty, but he rolls with it 🙂

    My brother had a stuffed barney as a child; he’s 18 years old now. I went to visit my parent’s house recently and walked by his room – the barney was hanging out on his pillow! My brother is too proud to admit it, but he still loves his barney too 🙂 Must run in the family! lol

    MrsBuesleBee:  I keep mine stuffed inside the case of one of the spare pillows. It sleeps on the floor most nights, but sometimes I sneak it out if I’ve had a rough day. If I am upset or having anxiety, it is the first thing I reach for and it almost always makes me feel better. HOW SAD.

    whitums:  this.

    Mine is a sweatshirt that literally fits a 5 yr old..I don’t even think I ever wore it. Somehow I ended up with it and haven’t given it up since. I didn’t leave the room without it until I was in high school (I mean…I left the house without it. I wasn’t THAT weird). Now it is in shreds and I am too worried it will disintigrate to even wash it. It is the nastiest thing ever and I love it.

    i was given a baby doll when i was born.  it is in a box at my mom’s house.  she would never throw it away.  she told me she was going to clean it and give it to me as a present on my wedding day.  i think she might have forgotten about it.

    Yes, I still have my first teddy bear. It’s a a Paddington bear, but unfortunately I have lost his raincoat and hat long ago. I do not sleep with it, but I can’t imagine getting rid of it, ever.
