|« Bedwetting - it needn't be a Nightmare!||Stumbling over Words »|
One third of British adults take a teddy bear to bed with them, according to a recent survey which also found that over half of the adult population has an old teddy bear in their home dating back to their childhood. This makes the average age of teddy bears 27 years old!
Over 6,000 adults were questioned on behalf of the hotel chain Travel Lodge. It found that a quarter of businessmen take a teddy with them on business trips because it reminds them of home! Allegedly, the hotel chain receive hundreds of worried telephone calls each month from owners who fear they may have left their teddies behind in their bedrooms.
The survey also found that traditional teddies were most popular followed by Winnie the Pooh and Paddington. It has also been said, by the American writer Christopher Andersen, that Prince Charles even travels with his childhood teddy.
Although we may claim to love our teddies and take them all over the world, we are not always that careful. Over 75,000 Teddies are lost and reunited with their owners each year by Travel Lodge staff alone!
