The girls in grade school said that if your swing on the swing set was synchronized with the person swinging next to you, then that meant you were married. After hearing that, I was really careful who I swung next to.
When swinging on the swing set in the playground, if there was another kid swinging in the adjacent swing and the timing of their swinging became synchronized with mine, it was understood that either of us were obligated to shout, "Get out of my bathtub!" When I looked up this quaint custom on the internet, it seemed to be an actual thing that kids did in the past. Apparently it's such an old custom that the original phrase used to be "Get off my party line!", which of course referred to multiple people having a conversation on the same telephone line. I suspect that this etiquette arose because a swing set can be destabilized, and may tip over when two or more people are swinging at the same frequency and height, and so shouting the phrase was a request for the other person to adjust their own swinging frequency.
I used to believe that my stuffed animals were awake at night when i fell asleep
I used to believe my stuffed animals were alive and had feelings. When I was younger, I got a brand new stuffed bear, and put my stuffed tiger away in the closet with the rest of my stuffed animals (the closet was in a separate room, behind my bed in my room). When I tried to sleep, I could hear scratching behind my head. I was so scared that I threw my bear in the closet and grabbed my tiger, but the scratching continued. Turned out we had mice.

Corrently i don't like toys, front the moment i was seen the movie Anabelle, i have a lot fear of dolls, when i going to visit my brother, i don't like enter your room, because my sister in law has many dolls.

When I was a little boy, I used to think the toys moved like the movie "Toy's Story". I used to believe my toys played during the night. I woke up to watch my toys play but my toys did not move. So I understood the movies are not true in real life.
When I was a little boy, I used to believe that on Christmas day it was necessary to deposit a bowl of milk and cereals outside for Father Noel and his reindeers.
I thought that the reindeers put on weight a lot on Christmas day.
When I was little, I used to believe that when I played at car's video games , the other cars were like that in real life, so when I had an accident, they had accidents in real life too.
I used to think that the reason my brother and I gave our stuffed animals REAL personalities was because we were the only people in the world who had stuffed animals that look like they're REALLY alive. I later found out that other people had the variety of more "alive-looking" stuffed and just didn't bother to give them real, fully formed personalities.

I used to believe that the Toy Story movie was real and my toys move when i was gone.
I used to think that my little pony was real and that my toy ponies would come alive when i wasn't looking.
When I was 4 or 5, I found a jacket on the ground at the park. My mom told me not to touch it, as it doesn't belong to me. I believed, for years, that if you take another kid's stuff they left at the park without them knowing, you could get in big trouble and you would never be allowed at the park again. I also told all my friends that.
I used to think that board games were called bored games because you play them when you're bored.
When I was a child, I used to believe that the toys in the night and when nobody is in the house, they came alive.
When I was around five years old back in the 1980's, a local shopping mall had a KB Toys store. I always avoided that place because I was convinced by the name that the KGB owned the store pretending to sell toys just to lure American children in there in order to kill them.
I used to think the car on 'Free Parking' in Monopoly was a red telephone, since the car was viewed from the front and had a strange white circle on the hood. It looked a bit like a telephone with a dial and receiver.
I once watched the Curse of Chucky at my nana's. It scared me so much I wouldn't go anywhere by myself. I am still afraid of Chucky, and I'm now ten! I can't sleep by myself or be the last one asleep, because Chucky might get me!
