    He Gets No Cuddles

    I sleep with a teddy in my bed but never cuddle him, the poor thing. I can sleep without him but it's just become a habit. I bought him for my Dad when I was about 6 and he told me to look after him for him, so I did!

    Teddies Rule!

    I used to be (somewhat) obsessed with my teddies and other stuffed animals. When I was around 10 or 11 I decided to have a sleep over - except instead of people, I would invite my assorted stufflings! lol so that night I gathered up all the stuffed animals in sight, threw 'em on...

    My Bed Is A Zoo. Lol

    I have about seven stuffed friends strewn about my bed at any given time. I find it almost impossible to go to sleep without being snuggled up to one of them. I even pack a small one with me when I travel. Currently, my favorite is a giant stuffed lion. He's almost as big as me...

    I Have To....really.

    I'm to the point now that I can't get to sleep without my teddy bear. If I am so tired that I just fall asleep without him, I have nightmares. I used to just sleep with him for comfort, now it's a necessity. I will lose sleep if I don't have him curled up next to me in bed or...

    She isn't a teddy but a TY brand cat called

    Trixie. Had her since I was 6 and has been through everything with me. Can't sleep without her. If I had my own way (and was socially accepted) I would carry her around all the time as a comfort thing.

    Teddies Are...

    Cute, and cuddly, and warm when it's cold. I have several and don't care who knows it. They see them in my room and don't say a word. I sleep with one or two because they are sweet companions. They don't snore, they don't sweat, they don't snort in your ear or face, their noses...

    I just got this giant teddy bear (55in)

    and it's so nice to snuggle up to it at night because it's almost the same height as me but it's very fat. My sister got one too and they're just overwhelmingly large. I named mine "Robby". It even wraps it's arms around me. It sounds childish seeing as though I'm 19, but when...

    I'm way to old to but I still sleep with a

    teddy bear most nights. When I feel lonely it's nice to have something to hold onto and imagine it's hugging me back. I'm 14 and still sleep with a teddy bear. Is that weird?

    Little Old Baby Bear

     I call him Mister Bear when I feel like pestering him and Baby Bear when I need some comforting.  My mom says I've had him since I was five and I'm 23 now so that makes him a really old bear. I modeled for a local department store and I think I pointed to him on a...

    Teddy bears are soft

    and lovable! It's like I have a friend by my side every night! I snuggle up with my teddy bear when it's cold and when it's hot. It's stuck with me for a while. And I would have him by my side until I die.

    My ex used to keep a teddy bear on the bed. I would wake up every morning and find I was hugging it. Maybe she was putting it in my arms while I slept or maybe I just liked to cuddle with it. Not sure.

    Not Always

    Not always, but we have hundreds of teddy bears ans sometimes curling up with a pillow just isn't the same as grabbing a bear to hold onto. Plus they make very good insulation on a cold night.
