Teddy in a Mug

Quote for the day
"The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences."

Pussy Cat

The first commercial concern to create stuffed toys is apparently the Steiff company, founded in 1880 in Giengen an der Brenz, Germany. Among the most popular types of classic stuffed animals are teddy bears and sock monkeys. Stuffed animals are bought for a variety of reasons. Some are bought for display. They can also be given as gifts, such as for graduation, Valentine's Day, birthdays, any kind of special day, or just as an expression of thought.

Cuddly Mouse

A stuffed toy is a toy sewn from cloth, plush, or other textiles, and stuffed with straw, beans, plastic pellets, cotton, synthetic fibers, or other similar materials. Stuffed toys are also known as plush toys from plush, the outer material used, and soft toys or cuddly toys. They are made in many different forms, often resembling animals, legendary creatures, cartoon characters or inanimate objects.

not all dreams are sweet

Frederick Charles "Freddy" Krueger is a fictional character from the A Nightmare on Elm Street series of films. Created by Wes Craven and portrayed by actor Robert Englund in every film of the series, he is an undead serial killer who can attack his victims from within their own dreams. Freddy is commonly identified by his burnt, disfigured face, red and green striped sweater, brown fedora hat, and trademark metal-clawed leather glove, which he fashioned himself. His full name has been listed as Frederick Charles Krueger. Wizard Magazine rated him the 14th greatest villain of all time, and he came in 8th on British television channel Sky Two's Greatest Villains of All Time.
Wes Craven claims his inspiration for the basis of Krueger's power stemmed from several stories in the LA Times about a series of mysterious deaths: all the victims had reported recurring nightmares beforehand, and died in their sleep. Physically, Craven's inspirations for Freddy included a homeless man who had frightened Craven as a youth and a bully at his school. The 1970s pop song "Dream Weaver" by Gary Wright sealed the story for Craven, giving him not only an artistic setting to "jump off" from, but the synthesizer riff from the Elm Street soundtrack.
Robert Englund has expressed many times that he feels that the deeper meaning behind the character is that he represents neglect, particularly the neglect that children and teens are sometimes subject to when growing up.
