Plushies are not something you ever outgrow and will always be a valid source of comfort during sad times.
My partner broke up with me well over a month ago, my arctic fox plushie has been a small, but helpful emotional support thing for me. My ex hasn’t even so much as hugged me since that night of the breakup. Hell I forget what a hug feels like now. My little fox has been keeping that sense of comfort from disappearing. Plushies have their place.
