I suspect my teddy bear may have autism.

It has few facial expressions.
It is often staring at people.
It has no friends at all.
It has a lot of difficulties in mimicking other's emotions (still smiling when told a sad event).
It has a restrained interest in the moon (looking at it for hours).

Does your teddy bear also have autism?
Do you know any efficient psychotherapy designed to help teddy bears with autism?

It's an interesting question, Laeti.

I don't have a teddy bear.

Of course. My Teddy Bear, "Alan Bear," traveled from Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire, England to me. His papers said so. It isn't a replica of Alan Turing's Teddy Bear he named "Porgy," and dressed in blue-tartan overalls, but it is quite close to the original, wears a knitted royal blue jumper with "Bletchley Park" stitched in white, and comes with a pretty good autistic pedigree (I checked).

Cute thread! :D

No, my teddy bear does not have autism. In fact he's a sociable bear. He literally looks more comfortable when sitting with other teddy bears. And he has different facial expressions too, even though his nose and mouth is all unravelled (he's rather old and tattered because I've had him since I was a baby and he's been loved). But despite having a ripped nose and no mouth and one eye, he still gives out a friendly, loving expression.

You are never too old to love your teddy bear. :heart:

Waw! Your teddy bear has an impressive pedigree! It must decode instantly anything you tell to it, maybe even before you've even told it with words :)

I don't think I ever had a teddy bear. I lived before they became very popular. This is what I had.
