My girl had 3. One is her mirror image, one is her shadow and one is a guardian angel of sort. They all have very beautiful names :)

My daughter has 3 imaginary friends - her 2 pillows and 1 blanket. All 3 have names and she brings them everywhere, even when we went to Europe. My son has none.

I have a pillow friend too which has been with me all these years, providing emotional support.

My son has a teddy bear which he got for his 1st birthday from my girlfriend. He's 15 now and Ted ( bear's name) is still with him. I had to patch/sew it several times. He refuse to let me replace it. It's quite thread bare now. Ted has no mouth, I had sewn a mouth and added a belly button for it years back. It's amazing how much a child can love and treasure a toy. Ted seems to have a life. When I change my boy's bedding, I find myself being extra gentle with Ted and not just dump it on the floor to get it out of the way.

Do you have something like that in your life?


I have a red coral rosary. She's my friend when I'm worried or fearful. I don't chant or count the beads. Just holding it makes me feel better. I got it from a Nepaleses mom who is trying to raise her family single-handedly by selling the rosaries she make.

I know what you mean. Sometimes the simplest "toy" (if you call pillow a toy), is our companion for life. I got this pillow friend in 1992, when I was in JC2. Of course, I didn't start with her. She came about when her "sister" (another pillow I had since I was a child) was brutally "murdered" by my parents. :oops:

It seems to have expressions and whenever my maid changes the bedsheets, I told her to be careful. Once she grabbed and threw my pillow and I went "Ouch".

I think imaginary friends are ok ... as long as the house is clean. :yikes:

Reminds me of that Bruce Willis show.
