There are many grownups who still love plush toys and I have to admit, I’m one of them. Plush toys are cute, soft and cuddly, what’s not to like about them, right? I sometimes even hug a plushie as I work, as it makes working more comfortable and helps to take off a little bit of stress.

However, a lady in Hubei Province, China, takes her love for plush toys to a whole new level. Not only does she bring a Snoopy plushie with her every time she goes on a date with her boyfriend, she makes him buy a ticket for Snoopy when they go to the movies, and even orders meals for the plush toy when they go out for dinner!

Yan Fang, a 27-year-old from Hubei Province, China, broke up with his girlfriend after four years of tolerating her crazed obsession with her Snoopy plushies.

According to Chinese media Wu Han Chen Bao, Mr. Fang’s girlfriend was unusually attached to her Snoopy dolls because she grew up under the care of her grandparents, had few friends and never received much love and care from her parents, therefore she sought solace in her collection of Snoopy plush toys.

Trying to be accommodating and understanding, Mr. Fang put up with her bizarre requests and behavior even when she brought a different Snoopy along on each occasion they went out, talked to Snoopy during their date, ordered meals for Snoopy at meal time (which Mr. Fang always had to finish up, causing him to put on weight), and requested that Snoopy had its own seat whenever they went for a movie.

What eventually made Mr. Fang snap was a ridiculous request for him to take the plush toy to the loo because “Snoopy needs to go”. Feeling ridiculed, he took hold of the soft toy and threw it on to the floor. What he didn’t expect was a fierce slap on the face from his girlfriend. Needless to say, the couple went their separate ways after that.

A couple of days later, Mr. Fang tried to patch things up and contacted his girlfriend. They had been in a good relationship after all, if not for “Snoopy”. However, his girlfriend wasn’t ready to forgive him until he apologized to Snoopy. That was when Mr. Fang decided to put things to an end, calling for a break up. Well, any logical human would have probably chosen to do so.

Mr. Fang reportedly asked for a compensation of 40,000 Chinese yuan (approximately US$6,424) to make up for wasting his youth, money and emotional contribution to the relationship.
