* Boo, the Miniature Giant Space Hamster of ''BaldursGate'' fame, served as a biological version of this trope for the brain-addled Minsc. Although it's also entirely possible Minsc was right. It has been [[http://archive.gamespy.com/interviews/october00/minsc/ implied]] by what may count as WordOfGod that Boo was bought from Elminster himself.

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'': Julien tends to talk out his own problems with Amelia, the skeletal remains of the airplane pilot, holding entire conversations although we never get to hear her responses. Even some of the other characters like Maurice have been known to do this.

!!Straight Examples:



* Subverted with isolated orphans with stuffed animals (or any object they can personify) or even grown people in some pretty tough circumstances; like people who write fiction, them believing stuffed animals walk, talk, and act like people (or in some cases make noises and act like animals) causes the stuffed animals to be ''alive''.
** ''Also'' subverted with comedian dummies, puppet shows, and the Beanie Babies; each of them came with a name and a short biography, and [[SeriousBusiness people were paying]] ''[[SeriousBusiness hundreds]]'' [[SeriousBusiness of dollars]] were making them act as if they were alive.

* There were the Beanie Babies; each of them came with a name and a short biography, and [[SeriousBusiness people were paying]] ''[[SeriousBusiness hundreds]]'' [[SeriousBusiness of dollars]] for some of them.
* As people who have witnessed isolated orphans with stuffed animals (or any object they can personify) or even grown people in some pretty tough circumstances can tell you, the declassified CIA study referred to in the trope namer's entry is pretty much valid.
** Also the subject of a psychiatry study with monkeys. Young monkeys were studied with various socialization forms: one was only socialized with its mother, one was socialized with many other monkeys, and the last was only socialized with a fur-covered board. The young monkey became extremely attached to the board.

* In the Norwegian children's series ''{{Knerten}}'' by Anne Cath Westly, one of the main characters is a stick that looks like a human. The other main character, a little boy, treats him like his best friend and has apparently not realised that he's inanimate. Sort of like ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', although this one is older.
