Abstract
The origins of soft-object attachments were explored in terms of maternal p ersonality and child temperament as measured by maternal questionnaires and by laboratory observation of child temperament and mother-toddler interact ions. Toddlers' soft-object attachments were found to be predicted by the m aternal variables of constraint and positive affectivity, the latter in com bination with low child activity level.
