How old were you when you got your first teddy bear (or other favorite stuffed friend)? what was it's name if it had one? Do your children have a favorite friend that they can't live without?


I didn't get my first teddy bear until Christmas my senior year of high school. It just hit me one day that I never had one, so I asked my parents about it. They said they don't know why I never had one, and bought me one for Christmas.

Nick is the only one of my children who carried around a teddy bear all the time. My brother bought it for him for his 1st birthday. It was the bear from Snuggle fabric softener...Nick called it Ya-Ya. We still have Ya-Ya...he's well loved and put away for Nick's first child.

Um, I know I had one when I was small and it was the same as my brothers and we got them overseas. I still have it too.

awwww that's so sweet! I never had one either - Kirsten carried around her blankie for the longest time! I never allowed either of them to have stuffed animals til they were older because I was scared of SIDS so they never really got attached to any.

You know I can't remember how old I was when I got my first. Shane carries a blanket with him all the time. He's slowing starting to outgrow it though. Thank goodness.

I don't know how old I was, that's a good question. But his name is Charley and I still have him (and sometimes still sleep with him )

I got a bear when I was born from my Aunt and Uncle. He was just Teddy.

Gavin has his Grouchy Bear which he got from the Hospital. Nic is not into stuffed animals.

I got Mr Bear when I was in the hospital at the age of 2. He never left my side after that. My mom would have to sneak him away from me at night so that she could wash him. He went to college with me and moved into my first apartment. I still have him. . .he sits on the floor in my bedroom.
