Phew, owning stuffed toys doesn't mean you're immature

"The Journal of Adult Development found no such link in a nonclinical sample of typical adults. The researchers used physiological and self-reported measures of emotion regulation, including tests of psychological immaturity."

Stuart Brody, professor of psychology at the University of the West of Scotland, said, “Some people might automatically assume that an adult owning a toy animal is an indicator of the owner's immaturity, there was no association of adult toy animal ownership with emotion regulation and maturity.”

  • I could have told them that!  I collect interesting and different stuffed animals . . vultures, seals, spiders . . . and while I know I have refused to grow up, there is nothing childish about me.

  • Teddy Bears are remarkably comfortable to sleep with:-) They always are cuddly and they never complain.

  • people who criticise adults with teddy bears (or whatever toy collections they may have) are only being crappy because they regret doing away with their own beloved collections.

    duh.

  • Maybe the term "adult" is ill defined anyway ?
    It means you have reached a certain age.
    "Maturity" is even more flexible.
    We never "grow up", we just grow and then we stop growing…
