Most kids go through a phase where they sleep with a stuffed animal. That phase can last YEARS. And for some, it continues into adulthood.
A new poll asked people if they’ve ever “regularly slept with a stuffed animal . . . as an ADULT.” 23% of people said YES . . . 72% said NO . . . and 4% “aren’t sure.” (???)
You may THINK this is heavily skewed toward women, but that’s NOT the case. 22% of men say they have regularly slept with stuffed animals as an adult . . . while 25% of women say the same.
This COULD be a more recent phenomenon . . . 35% of people between the ages of 18 and 44 admit to it. But that number drops to 14% for Gen X, and 6% for Boomers.
Unfortunately, they didn’t ask how many adults are currently sleeping with a stuffed animal. (But a poll from earlier this year found that 42% of people sleep with stuffed animals, at least occasionally.)
