It's no secret to parents (or even former children) that kids often develop a special attachment to a lovey -- a favorite toy or blanket that almost never leaves their side. From family vacations to doctor visits, loveys can provide a sense of comfort and security to young kids growing up.

We asked the HuffPost Parents Facebook community for pictures of their kids with their prized objects and the most interesting places they've traveled with them.

Here are 31 of those adorable photos.

    "My son with his 'baaaa.' When we realized how important this little blankie was to him, we went out and got another one the exact same. He took one sniff of this new blanket and said 'NOT baaaa,' threw it to the ground and it was never touched again. Guess it has a distinct smell smile emoticon So much for a back up!"
