A man from California, who is addicted to his 15 inflatable pool toys for the past six years, has claimed that he is in love with his blow-up yellow dragon.

Mark, from Redlands, sleeps with his collection of inflatables and even cooks food for them so they can have dinner together.

The 20-year-old even sleeps with his dragon - named Lila - lying on top of him, the Daily Mail reported.

Mark, who features in the TLC TV show 'My Strange Addiction,' said he would even marry Lila as he loves her so much.

He showers Lila with kisses and can be seen sitting on the couch stroking her during the programme.

He believes that his addiction began at the age of 14 when he purchased a whale for his pool and turned to the inflatable toys for the affection he said he never got from his mother. (ANI)
