I wasn't sure whether to put it in this section because I'm meaning to ask this randomly, but: I am sure everyone of us had a favourite plushie when we were kids. I'm curious to know what yours were? Do you still have them? Or if not, why not? And do you think it is traumatizing if a child loses its most beloved plushie?
As for me first I had this "Pumuckl"-shaped pillow I used to carry around with me everywhere. Until it was so broken my mum couldn't fix it anymore and suddenly it was just gone. She probably threw it away.
Then for a long time I had this little white monkey that I put under my face when I slept, it was my most beloved plushie ever. Then when we went on holiday I lost it on a parking place on the way to Austria. It must have fallen out of the car. I'm still sometimes thinking about it and no other toy has been able to replace it. I really miss that monkey.
