Does your son still play with stuffed animals?

My son just turned 6 and I think it's the cutest thing...he is into everything, sports, reading, computer games, etc. But still takes out time to play with his stuffed animals. He sleeps with them and everything. I was just wondering how common it is. I see nothing wrong with it.

  • My son is almost 4 and only has one or two real special stuffed animals - most just sit in his room, but a few he still plays with and brings places. Yesterday he brought his favorite, Gigi the Giraffe, to the skate park.

  • Its nice to see my son isnt the only one that does this :) my son will be six in September and he still sleeps with his stuffed animals, his special pillow and two special blankets. He carries them out in the morning and takes them to bed with him at night. I hope he grows out of it soon.

  • Yes. And doll houses, dress up clothes, dolls, wearing my shoes for fun....yep. And I love him for it. Not so much interested in stuffed animals. We intend to encourage his imaginative play and not base it on any set stereotypes of what little boys need to play with.
