Cuddle up with a teddy bear at night? You're not alone. A study commissioned by Built a Bear finds four in 10 adult Americans still sleep with teddy bears at night. Probably not surprisingly, 56% report it's the same bear they had when they were kids at least two decades ago.
72% of those polled said they want to keep their bears for life. Here are some of the feelings and emotions associated with people's stuffed animal:
- Comfort - 30%
- The person who gave the toy to them - 22%
- The appearance of the stuffed animal - 19%
