Generally speaking, all children cherish a stuffed animal companion with whom they can talk, care, play and love. Since parents are often reluctant to give their children a pet, a stuffed animal is a perfect choice. It has the adorable feel of a real pet, while also being something cute and cared for. He will give your child the feeling of a companion and enlighten them on how to take care of others instead of just themselves!
1.Give your new companion a name. This will make it look like a real partner for you, and the more anthropomorphic the partner looks, the easier it is to commit.
2.Give your stuffed animal a small house or permanent residence. Or you can make a bed for it. If it's big or likes to cuddle with you, it can live in your bed. This allows you to be closer and have your own space.
3.Carry your companion with you. This helps him or her feel wanted. If you absolutely can't take your stuffed animal with you, tell him or her they can't come over to give them a hug, a kiss or both.
4.Make fun projects with your plushie buddy. Perform the following actions:
Create a bedroom for it
Paper mache project

5.Keep it neat and take care of your stuffed animals.
- When a stuffed animal is damaged, take care of it. If your teddy bear or stuffed animal is torn or missing parts, place it in a hospital crib until you can sew it back together. Ask an adult to help you, especially if parts need to be replaced.
- Keep your stuffed animal neat and tidy. Your stuffed animal may like to be groomed occasionally. Brush him or her with a soft brush.
- Wash your stuffed animal at least once a month. For stuffed animals without batteries, it's best to place them in a closed pillowcase and toss them in the washing machine. Use 1 tablespoon of laundry detergent and distilled white vinegar in the rinse cycle to deodorize and remove any detergent residue.
- Fill the animals with batteries, spot clean (remove small markings), dip an old clean toothbrush into soapy water and gently wipe down the markings.
- Make sure you always care for your animals!
