Experts say that even the quirkiest objects can serve a very important role for children. While teddy bears are the most popular object, kids get strongly attached to things like blankets, a certain toy, to more unusual things like a hockey stick or a plastic vacuum attachment.
Research shows this is not unusual. Items like this are called “transitional objects” and they provide children with security, reassurance and predictability once they start facing time away from their mothers.
