My oldest who is seven was never into toys really. my five year old is just starting to catch up speech wise BUT my four year old dd gets attached to inaminate objects. no i am not talking about stuffed animals or toys but like a piece of paper, a dishtowel *her friend the girl* or an old tiny christmas tree ornament. she is very imaginative but she will cry if i take away these things. she has plenty of toys so i know that is not the problem so can i get any insight? is this normal behavior?

Yes it can be.  I dont see the harm in having her be attached to odd items as long as they arent harmful or sharp.  DD was a girl who would walk around with a toothbrush constantly instead of a typical lovey.

My 4 yr old does that. He will get attached to something for a month or two and then move on. Sometimes it's a toy, sometimes it not.

 My dd was like that too, tho at a bit of a younger age.  She is only two after all.   Thought it weird, but she has not acted like that in a long while.
