Today's topic is about inanimate objects and the joy they bring to peoples lives! I have had a toy bear that I have slept and cuddled with (until I came to Uni where I did not think it was a good place to bring him(he is safe at home!)) nearly every night since I was born his name was "Puffy" he is even older than me! Which is funny to think about a little bear being older than me! I wanted to put a picture up of him but I don't have any! Now to the serious topic! There is a saying that "money does not buy happiness" in my own honest opinion I don't believe this saying. Sure you can find happiness without money and wealth but having it does help a lot!
So Today's questions are! Do you have a Teddy/toy/blanked that is special to you? and how old is it? And also do you think happiness can be bought?
Thank you so much for reading my blog once again, I am sorry that the pictures today are not as I promised and I would love to hear from you all just click comment at the bottom of my post and leave a comment ( you don't have to be signed up to leave a comment just leave your name or be anonymous!)
Now some random facts!
A toy is any object that can be used for play. Toys are usually associated with children and pets. Playing with toys is training the young for their social role. Young chimpanzees use sticks as dolls - the social aspect is seen by the fact, that young females more often use a stick this way than young male chimpanzees. They carry their chosen stick and put it in their nest. Such behaviour is also seen in some adult female chimpanzees, but never after they have become mothers.
It is not unusual for adults and some other animals to play with toys. An example of this is a dolphin being trained to nudge a ball through a hoop. Many items are designed to serve as toys, but goods produced for other purposes can also be used. For instance, a small child may pick up a household item and "fly" it through the air as to pretend that it is an airplane. Or, an animal might play with a pine cone by batting at it, biting it, chasing it, or by tossing it around. Another consideration is interactive digital entertainment, such as a video game. Some toys are produced primarily as collector's items and are intended for display only.
The origin of toys is prehistoric; dolls representing infants, animals, and soldiers, as well as representations of tools used by adults are readily found at archaeological sites. The origin of the word "toy" is unknown, but it is believed that it was first used in the 14th century
