Stuffed animals are something that pretty much every kid has. Some kids may even get attached to certain stuffed animals and carry them for years. While stuffed animals may seem like nothing more than a toy, there are actually a few benefits to letting kids have stuffed animals.
Can Help with Learning Language
While kids are learning to speak, they are sometimes embarrassed to try to say words they are not familiar with. They may feel more comfortable speaking to their stuffed dog or bear than to a person as they learn. They may also learn what the animal is called and practice saying it, or assign a name to the animal.
