Since I can't stop bawling uncontrollably when I even think of the mainpage article about the woman and her stuffed bear, I thought it would be interesting to share our beloved stuffed friends.

There's a book out full of photographs of people's childhood stuffed animals called Much Loved by Mark Nixon. You can truly see how beloved each stuffed toy was.

So show us your stuffed animal friends. What are their names, how did you get them?
