Yep, this relationship sounds totally healthy. A woman named Marieke Voorsluijs in the Netherlands was sad that her teenage son didn’t want to cuddle with her anymore. So her answer was to knit a life-size version of him that she can hug constantly.
She says her son actually liked the idea, and even helped her make it. The finished product is a weird yarn child with a hat, pants, a sweater, and headphones.
