Seeing Old and Torn Stuffed Animals Is Sort of Horrifying

When you're a kid, sometimes the only friend you have is a stuffed animal. It's always with you—when you eat, when you sleep, when you play—and all those years take a toll on a fake teddy bear! These pictures show the after effects of teddy bears and stuffed animals who were loved too much. It's a little heartbreaking?

The photo series, called MuchLoved, was created by photographer Mark Nixon who wanted to show the scars and lost limbs of teddy bears who are still cherished by their owners. It's freaking creepy as hell. Check out more picture of the teddy bear project here. Each teddy has a story, some have seen more than 50 years! [Mark Nixon]
