What the hell is going on out there? lol

Re: 1/3 adults with teddy bears

Yes I guess they like bears. I had a Paddington Bear. My most recent bear was a gift and I named it Joe and got some iron on letters in an animal print and ironed Joe onto his chest. Ouch! Poor Joe. These people must anthropomorphize their teddy bears. I lost Joe but I'll make a Joe 2.

I once worked with a grown man who had a collection of Teddy Bears at home, he took photos of them as well to show to us. It's a Brit thing!!

I don't know, but I have a tiger in my tank and a monkey on my back.

Re: 1/3 adults with teddy bears

I still have my childhood teddy bear. He sits in my lounge. He is 47 years old, has a bell around his neck, wears a knitted football strip, and he squeeks when you press his tummy. His name is Edward. I do not take him to bed.
