I read somewhere that one third of adults still take a Teddy Bear to bed, and then I found a study on ABC News that said 1 in 4 grown men travel with a Teddy Bear.
Travelodge states that they have reunited more than 75,000 bears with owners. That’s a LOT of stuffing! So the company decided to investigate.
After surveying over 6000 people they discovered that 35 percent of adults admitted they sleep with their teddy because they found cuddling their bear comforting. Additionally, many said the calming feeling of a bear hug helped them lower their stress level after a hard day.
And it turns out that a large number of the bear-toting travelers are men.
