Many youngsters find solace in their plush animals. If you're afraid of going to the doctor or sleeping in the dark, having a pet to snuggle with might make the experience more bearable. Stuffed animals act as transitional items for these youngsters, providing solace in strange or uncomfortable settings (Winnicott, 1953). Adults may use stuffed animals as transitional items, despite the fact that they are often considered as children's play things. Stuffed animals may be more than just a source of comfort for children and adults; they can also be beneficial to their mental and physical well-being.

Stuffed animals, on the other hand, may assist motivate youngsters to read. Okazaki et al. (2017) evaluated the use of a stuffed animal overnight programme to motivate children to read in a separate research of preschoolers. Stuffed animals that had been left overnight at a library were given to youngsters as a first step. Photographs of the stuffed animals doing various actions helped to persuade the kids that they were magical and sentient. The stuffed animals then left a message for the youngsters, asking them to tell them a story. As part of the intervention, Okazaki et al. (2017) monitored and documented the number of children who read picture books to plush animals during free playtime before and after the programme. After the stuffed animal overnight programme, there was an increase in the number of children who read to stuffed animals. Okazaki et al.(2017) discovered that reminding children about the programme one month after it ended by having them explain what the stuffed animals did during a sleepover helped raise their desire to read, even if those benefits faded after three days.

Finally, plush animals may be used to alleviate post-surgical discomfort in youngsters. In a study of paediatric patients aged 1 to 7, Ullán et al. (2014) offered a rabbit plush animal disguised as a doctor with instructions for parents to utilise the stuffed animal to play with their kid following surgery. After the operation, they also observed the children's signs of suffering, such as their facial expressions or weeping. When it comes to discomfort, children who got instructions to play with stuffed animals showed less pain than those who didn't, according to Ullán et al. (2014) findings. Playing with stuffed animals may have distracted the youngsters from their discomfort, according to the researchers, or it may have boosted their mood, which in turn may have influenced their perception of pain.
