# Toddlers and Teddies

At the local play group for babies and toddlers, I was asking the mothers about the number of teddies each of their children has. The four children are aged 1, 2, 3 and 4. Remarkably, the children have one, two, three and four teddies, although not necessarily respectively. James has more teddies than his age. John is older than Matthew. Curiously only one child has the same number of teddies as his age. Paul has less teddies than John, and the child aged 3 has two teddies. Paul is the youngest.

How old is each child and how many teddies do they have each?
