A comfort object is a small stuffed animal given to children ages seven and under in Jonas' Community. Comfort objects are taken from children when they become Eights, recycled, and given to newchildren, presumably until they are worn out. Comfort objects are carried about by those possessing them.
Known Comfort Objects
- From what is given to us in the first chapters, it is implied that people do not know about the existence of real animals. This could be found when on Chapter 2 it is stated that "Many of the comfort objects, like Lily's, were soft, stuffed, imaginary creatures" and "Jonas's had been called a bear".
