Now if Janet Leigh had turned the chair to find Norman Bates's teddy instead of his mother's corpse in Psycho, perhaps Cosmo Hallstrom's curious views ("Transitional objects for middle-aged men", 22 January) might bear (sic) scrutiny.

As the adoptive father of 14 teds (actually 10 teds, three rabbits and a pig), I have not yet felt like stabbing to death someone in the shower.

The teds and I do, however, share a mutual loathing of people called Cosmo. As for the Prince of Wales tucking his ted's paws in at night - what could be more caring?
