i was about 7 and a friend told me that her grandad was dead and he was under her parents bed. i would not go near my parents bed because i thought my dead grandad would be under there
i believed that a little man named spike lived under my bed and he had a pet rat.they only came out at night and roamed the streets looking for other rats to kill them.
When i was about 6 i believed there was an evil rabbit under my bed and that if i ate too many carrots he would eat me when i was sleeping. i wouldn't touch carrots and i would run and jump on to my bed :D
I believed there was a monster under my bed, and that one night it was going to come out and grab me. The light switch was on the opposite wall from my bed, so I had to turn off the light and run and jump int bed to avoid getting caught. One night my brother was hiding under there, and as I jumped into the bed - he grabbed my ankles. I was TERRIFIED - my worst nightmare had come true.
when I was young my mother told me that when I heard noises from my bed that it was just the "squeaks" in my bed(she meant to say my bed was squeaking) so until I was about 7 I would have night terrors about these starfish like creatures that squeaked
I used to believe there was a man under my bed that would get me if he knew I was there, so every night I tried to lay as flat as possible so he couldn't tell I was under the covers.
My brother and I shared a bunk bed. He was older so he got the top bunk. I envied him because I thought that the Hamburglar was hiding under my bed. I had nightmares of the Hamburgler tickling me, and hitting me because I'd laugh at him. I knew laughing at him would make him mad, but I couldn't help it, and he'd get mad.
When my son was about 5 he thought that the light-shade in his bedroon became a laser gun at night and would shoot him if he got out of bed. His favourite cuddly toy was a dog with long ears, and he would go to sleep with one of the dog's ears draped over his eyes so that the light couldn't tell if he was awake.
After watching the orginal movie The Blob. I used to to go sleep curled in a ball in the middle of the bed so that when the Blob came I would have an equal chance to get away no matter which side of the bed it came from.
I used to believe that if your legs and arms stuck out of the duvet monsters would come to eat them. I also used to believe if you didnt keep your eyes shut tightly you would be taken away by Wee little Willy (An english rhyme) and put in cages where the elephants ruled.
There wasn't a monster under my bed. There was a little girl. I'd leap off and onto my bed so she couldn't grab me and eat me. Before I went to bed I talked to her and snuck her a cookie. Needless to say when we got our bunk bed and I sat behind my mother as they moved my old bed, she was mortified when she saw about a hundred old cookies laying in a clump. I still slept on the top bunk, knowing the little girl was still waiting, and whenever I got off the ladder I'd leap into the middle of my room.
I had a bed that was built into the wall and you had to use a ladder to get up to it. There was a whole play area under the bed, and I used to believe that when I turned the lights off to go to sleep, alligators would crawl around under it, waiting to bite off my toes if I hung them over the edge. I'm 21 now, and still get that feeling when I hang my feet over the side of the bed!
When I was very young, my mother once told me that as a child, she used to believe there was a creature resembling an alligator that lived under her bed. If she needed to get up in the night, she would stand on top of her bed and leap as far away from the edge as she could. When she told me this, I didn't believe that it was a monster or alligator. Instead I thought it was the Egyption God, Ammit, who ate unbalanced souls, and was described as having a crocodile's head. (I knew A LOT of weird ancient history as a child.) For many years, I too would leap onto and off my bed in fear of Ammit pulling me into the underworld & devouring my soul.
When I was young, I thought ninjas lived under my bed and whenever I walked on the floor, it would throw a ninja star at me and slice off my feet so I would have to use a wheelchair. For a few months I just jumped from the end of my bed into the hallway, but one day I had to get up but my legs were too sore to jump, so I had to walk on my floor and no ninjas came and then I wasn't scared
My parents innocently told me one night that if I got out of bed to get water or go to the bathroom (for the hundreth time that night) that a nasty horrible crocodile monster with gigantic sharp teeth would eat my feet as soon as I placed them on the floor next to the bed. He'd come jumping out from under the bed and surely clamp on, and I'd be doomed, I thought.
This only promped me to start launching myself from the bed to the door, using the bed as a trampoline! *Boing!* Freedom!
I used to believe that the shadows on my ceiling would congregate during the night to form this dangerous shadow-creature named “The Beam”. I would always have to sleep with the light on because the Beam would get me if I didn’t have the light on.
i used to believe that there was ants and maggots at the bottom of my bed and so i slept on the floor until i was about 5
I used to believe that something or someone was under my bed ready to grad me if I let any body part hang over the edge while in bed. I still, as a mother of three, can't put my foot under the bed when I make it or let an arm or leg hang out at night!
I thought there was a monster that I think was called baggy bones and he would steal your bones out of your body if you let your legs or arms hang off the bed. He stole them because his bones were missing and he needed some.
I also had dreams where a demon would be floating above me and I'd wake up so terrified that it was really there that I wouldn't be able to open my eyes for what seemed like eternity, but was probably 15 minutes or so.
my younger sister used 2 get into bed really quickly because she used to think thata shark would come an get her from the floor
