65 percent of children have had an imaginary companion

Most children have a very rich imaginative life, and grownups often only get a partial view. We recall an older study asking children about 'imaginary worlds', and at that time were surprised to learn that the average age of children who played in imaginary worlds was 9 years old (that seemed pretty old)!

Nowadays, that age may have crept a great deal higher as fantasy literature and video and computer games have become so popular.
