I have a custom-made MLP beanie baby that I take to bed with me every night. She's perfect.

I have noticed something. There does not seem to be a general understanding of what "Dolly" means. Dolly is derived from doll, which is basically an anthropomorphic item that has a reasonable resemblance to a human form such that it can be identified as human. Now how does that relate to bears and stuffed animals? Dolls are gender-specific enough to be mostly identified with girls, which is why it is in this forum. Identifying doll-like figures that boys use as dolls have not gone over well with the general public. And "boy dolls" only go over as almost accessories for girl dolls or as collectibles for gronw-ups as part of a narrative centered on a girl doll, for the most part. Bears and the like are more identified with babies and toddlers than persons starting to acquire a gender self-image: 3-1/2 to just turning 6. So, if I am LG then a doll is more like me in species appearance; gross and fine detail, expression, etc, and gender appearance clothes, hearstyle, etc than a non-human form

I highly doubt that most people here don't understand what a doll is. I think what's happening here is more that people just like to be a part of the conversation, whether what they have to say is, in the OP's opinion, relevant to the discussion or not. It's not so much "My dolly is a stuffed bear," as it is "No, I don't sleep with a doll. I sleep with a teddy bear instead." Check out pretty much any discussion on the forums and you'll notice the same thing happens more often than not. And I fail to see how sleeping with a stuffed animal instead of a doll makes anyone any less little girl. Honestly, I knew more girls that slept with a stuffed animal or a special blankie than a doll, and well past your imposed age of 3 1/2 to 6 years. I myself had one doll that I slept with on occasion, and it was only a stuffed baby doll with little resemblance to a real baby. My other lovies werre all stuffed animals and I was most certainly a little girl.

You are, of course, correct. I was being gently sarcastic, The post was about hijacking a thread. if yo want to talk about bears and plushis go start your own thread and do not try to commandeer someone else's. It is rude and self-absorbed

The doll and bear experience and genre are totally different and really unrelated so it is off-topic
