    Do you think it's odd if a woman likes and has stuffed animals? I know that some movies make fun of women who do... what're your thoughts?

    I don't think it's strange, unless she really takes it to extremes: i.e., every single surface in the house being covered with them.

    My grandmother has tons of stuffed animals, and a few other women I know have a collection too.

    I take it you're a stuffed animal gal?:)

    *hangs head in shame* Er... yeah. :eek: I <3 me some stuffed animals. And I think you're right, if they're everywhere, that's problematic.

    Not if it is one or two (a few).

    But when the house or apartment is overrun by stuffed animals then maybe that person should seek help! ;) To much of anything is not good.

    Stuffed animals you say?

    Just so long as it's none of those I don't have a problem with it.

    Stuffed animals are OK.

    What's not OK? The looney woman in the supermarket yesterday holding a little rat dog, and talking to it in one of those nausiating, cutesy voices. "OK honey, where are the baby organic carrots. Mommy loves those."

    Stuffed toys are OK, but I'll run a mile from a woman with more than one cat. Half a mile if it's only one cat.

    I hate cats, I really do. They're snooty animals and they turn their owners into weirdoes, cat-owning weirdoes.

    I don't think it's strange unless you start mistaking stuffed animals for real animals......combing their hair, bathing them, picking up their "droppings", walking them, etc.

    I'd be worried about any woman who DOESN'T like stuffed animals. It's a big thing for them.

    I still have my stuffed bulldog from when I was a kid. My wife isn't much of a stuffed animal person now, although she has a dog her father gave her. Oh, and a monkey she puts in her tree in her office. My daughter has several!

    I am just wondering what kind of decor would be complimented by stuffed animals?

    It is one thing if it is one special toy that has some special memory attached, but to be an adult and have stuffed animals in your home? It is pretty good indicator that something is off.

    Yes! I'm totally with you on that one.

    I would never get involved with a woman who had one of those spider-rat-dog things. Whatever her good qualities, the rat would negate them.

    I see nothing wrong with liking them, and they make relatively inexpensive gifts for S.O.'s to buy. Everyone's happy. :)

    They're cute, they don't shed, they help insulate the house... all plusses.
    Excellent. One less obstacle on the **w path to devilot.

    I don't see a problem. But this is coming from someone whose bedroom is covered in plush toys.

    Ah, but I didn't say a stuffed rat-dog was objectionable. You're not out of the woods yet, jsw...

    I was just cleaning my dueling pistols today.:p

    I hope girls like them. Stuffed animals are cheap and make nice gifts.
