Why do children love stuffed animals?
Stuffed animals are a universal staple of any child's bedroom. In fact, if a child has only one toy, it's likely to be a stuffed animal. From bears to penguins to dogs to elephants, the fluffy animals come in all shapes and sizes to suit nearly any taste. Stuffed or plush animals will never lose their kid appeal! Here's why your child is crazy for teddy bears and stuffed animals:
1. They encourage nurturing. Children want a chance to play the adult. Stuffed animals make great recipients of a child's care. They're small and lightweight. Playing "mommy" or "daddy" to a stuffed animal makes children feel capable and in control.
2. They're always smiling. Stuffed animals are immune to the letdowns of life. No matter how many times they are dropped, sat on or left alone, they always greet their owners with heartwarming, reassuring smiles. Those fuzzy, happy faces make the world seem like a nicer place, no matter what's happening in the child's life.
3. They give the best hugs. Nothing chases away the blues like a warm, squishy hug, and it doesn't get warmer or squishier than a stuffed animal.
4. They're easy to clean up. For a child, nothing is easier than picking up stuffed animals from the floor after playtime. Their overstuffed bodies are gentle on little hands, and putting them away often means tossing them onto the child's bed (with glee). When the stuffed animal itself needs cleaning, a quick run through the washing machine usually takes care of the job.
5. They're dependable. Stuffed animals last long after most toys have fallen to bits. Stuffed animals don't bend, break or dent. They don't have screens that crack, batteries that run out or parts that get lost. A child can pick up or put down a stuffed animal at any time with no fuss or muss. They're great for taking along on a car ride or plane trip. With their forgiving smiles, cuddly hugs and years-long durability, stuffed animals really are the perfect friends.
