The study, commissioned by stuffed animal maker Build-A-Bear, surveyed 2,000 adults and found that 40 percent have their favorite stuffed animal by their side when they go to bed. According to the Atomik Research group, more than half of those polled say they’ve owned a stuffed animal for more than 20 years. More than 70 percent of those respondents said they were never going to get rid of their fluffy friend.

I have a red heart pillow from my daughter I place on my chest to read Kindle etc.

But I’m not “sleeping with it”.

That would be pretty insane.

They usually won’t sleep on the bed, but a chow chow is a teddy bear that can protect the homestead.

LOL! Yep.

My dog, my wintertime hot water bottle.

Stuffed toy... not since the 3rd grade. I don’t believe these numbers unless they just talked to snowflakes.

If he's just sleeping with a teddy bear, that's better than I would have guessed.

The study, commissioned by stuffed animal maker Build-A-Bear

About as credible as an Al Gore survey of climate scientists.

The annoying part is that fraudulent polls like these have been part of the media landscape forever. Auto makers 'commission' (read: concoct) a poll that says people prefer driving to walking, etc.

The media's longstanding desperation to fill column inches has made the Appeal To Majority fallacy an everyday occurrence.

“if “Teddy Bear” is code word for a 12 ga - then yes”

Especially after a 71 year old lady was killed in her home in North Dallas recently. In the past six years it seems violent crime has found its way into North Texas. My teddy bear is named Remington.

1 hubby who snores.

Now have a 4 year old g. grand son who sleeps with his Linus blanket, and panics when he can’t find it.

All grown ups like HUMAN PARTNERS! Sometimes joined with a cat or small dog if you don’t crate or leave bedroom door open.

Youngest son and girlfriend just had their first baby, so they have a bassinet in the room for the first 3 months but sure don’t have the baby in the bed sleeping with her.
