Men love my teddy bear

Thursday, November 06, 2014

A Spunky Guy with a teddy bear.

Something that may surprise lots of people is that more women buy teddy bears for men than you would think.  In fact out of the My Teddy customers, around Valentines day, most of our personalised teddy bears are bought by women for their men.  Most people find this hard to believe, but I found an article recently which I found interesting, and I have included it here for your reading pleasure!

Grown men take teddy bears to bed

By Jaya Narain When Sebastian Flyte took his teddy bear Aloysius to university in Brideshead Revisited it was supposed to be a sign of his eccentricity. But in the years since the 1980s TV dramatisation, it seems more and more Britons have come to see nothing wrong with keeping ted in the bed. More than a third of us still hug a childhood soft toy while falling asleep, according to a survey of 6000 British adults. More than half of Britons still have a teddy bear from childhood and the average teddy bear is 27 years old. Those who slept with a teddy told researchers that they found it was a comforting and calming way to de-stress at the end of the day. And 25 per cent of men polled said they took their teddy away with them on business because it reminded them of home. Even Prince Charles travels everywhere with his childhood teddy, according to claims in a book by the US writer Christopher Andersen. Hotel chain Travelodge, which carried out the research, said that in the past year staff have reunited more than 75 000 teddies and their owners. Spokesman Shakila Ahmed said: "Interestingly the owners have not just been children, we have had a large number of frantic businessmen and women call us regarding their forgotten teddy bear." - Daily Mail
