Do you still have your teddy bear, doll, or blanket from when you were a child?

Yes! My favorite bear ever, whose name is Patrick, lives in my closet. I don't know if I will ever be able to get rid of him.

Yep. Charlie, the long, gangly doggy wearing overalls (who may or may not be missing an ear...) is packed away in a keepsake box. =0) So is my baby blanket.

Nope. I voted it's lost but it isn't. It was put into storage and the bill was never paid so the locker was auctioned off.

yes, actually right behind me is a shelf with some of my childhood stuffed animals, my blanket, baby mobile, coming home outfit, baby shoes, cast from breaking my arm at about 18 mos, dance recital costumes, tap shoes, ballet shoes, a few awards form childhood, several dolls that my grandparents made or gave to me. I have an identical shelf on the other side of our futon that has my swimming and gymnastics medals, trophies, ribbons and memorabilia.

I never really had any one thing that I was attached to, but I do have a few stuffed animals and blankets from my childhood in a box, stored away. My mom has a box of dolls that she keeps threatening to send also We do have my dh's blankie that he carried everywhere (also stored because it's in shreds).

I had 3 small blankets that I slept with and they are in DS's closet now. I tried to give them to him a while back and he was not interested (latched onto a different blanket).

Yes. It's an ugly orange & white bear. It was one of the first toys a got as a newborn and it lived in my bed, and then my closet until I got married. My son found it at mom's place a couple of summers ago while we were visiting and the bear has been living in his bed ever since.

I still have the Cabbage Patch doll my mom bought for me in 1985. With as much trouble as she went to go get it, I can't bear to get rid of it But I never slept with it as a kid and I still don't, I just have her in my closet.

I still have mine. I voted "In a closet" but it really lived in our guest bedroom until recently, when I moved it to the nursery for my impending arrival to have

It's a bear who looks an awfully lot like Ted from the movie, and his name is Scrubby. I got the name for him in elementary school when the nurse was teaching us how to properly wash our hands, and she had a bear named Scrubby. Dont' know why, but I thought that was a good name and gave it to my own bear.

I bought my oldest the 25th anniversary one that is identical to it

I have a baby blanket that was knitted for me by a friend of my mom's. It is pink, blue, and white. It's still at my mom's house in a dresser.
