Remember the commercial about the game Twister that had that song that said, "Twister...the hot spot!"? Well I believed that some of the spots on the Twister mat were hot and that others would give you a slight electric shock. I was rather disappointed when I played Twister for the first time and the spots didn't do anything special! =)
When we were little, both me and my older sister had these blue stuffed-animal dinosaurs, and we used them as our own personal dream-catchers. We believed that they would eat any nightmares that came in so that they wouldn't go into our heads and become bad dreams, and with them around, we would only have nice dreams at night. I always made sure to bring mine everywhere I slept (like when visiting relatives), else I would have bad dreams.
when i was little, i use to play with barbies, and i thought that i had to play with all of them or the ones left out would be jealous and sad. so i always had families that were made up of 50 barbies. it was never easy playing with that many though.
i used to call stuffed animals "stuffed up animals" because that was what my mom called them, and i didnt see the difference then, although now, it sounds like animals that have a cold.
When the Furby toys came out, my friend told me that they came over every night from a magic rainbow, with briefcases and little detective coats on. I stayed up late three nights in a row to try and see if he would walk away...but i think Natalie was lying to me...i think.
when i was like 5 i used to think that barbies lived in some little people town far away and people would trap them and put then into boxes so whenever i saw one i wanted buy so it could live with all my other ones and i would always get the car and house and clothes so she could live a happy life....i was a very stupid child
I wanted my first bike so badly when I was little that I believed if I went out to the garden and asked God, there would be one under my bed when I went back indoors
I used to think that when I wasn't looking, my stuffed animals would talk about me behind my back, or have parties, but when I looked at them they returned to the exact same position they were in before.
In battery powered toys, I used to think that when the power had run out, the batteries actually used to disappear altogether. It actually turned out to be my older sister who used to take the batteries from my toys to use in her remote controls for TVs and Stereos.
When I was little...my Barbie had about 20 children. She had all these kids because she adopted them from the orphanage so they wouldn't get put to sleep. It didn't occur to me that an orphanage was different than a dog pound.
When I was a child I believed that the King on Candyland was actually a demon who wished to destroy the human race and make us his candymaking slaves so his fat ass could just get bigger and bigger until he covered the whole planet. I still think this.
I used to beleive that barbies were aliens......... I was very afraid of them and always treated my barbies with respect.
I used to belive that my benie baby dog moved during the night. The fact that i got him from the tooth fairy prompted this.
I used to have one of those hand-held kiddie radios, which was a cassette player. Anyway, my favorite was the cassette of Sesame Street songs, which my mom always put into the radio and let me listen to. I not only used to believe that Big Bird lived in the tape player, but he could listen to me as well. So whenever the tape ended, I always screamed, "PLAY MORE!" and hoped that Big Bird would give an encore performance. (He never did.)
When i was young, my friends told me that dolls's hair were made from dead people's hair.
I was scared for a while...
I used to believe that my stuffed animals were alive and that if I payed to much attention to any particular one the others would get really mad and destroy it. To get around this I would line them up in my room and read to them all aloud, however, I would always forget and end up reading in my head, so, to keep myself from feeling too bad about this I somehow managed to convince myself that after I read them a few pages aloud we developed a telepathic link and they could hear the rest of the book through that link.
When I was a child, I would occasionally visit my Aunt's house. She had a life-sized porcelain doll in a glass case inside her living room. It was holding a basket. I thought that in the basket there were knives and axes, and everytime I looked away she would move. I also thought that at night she silently broke out of the case and tried to kill me and my cousins. I have always hated dolls. Now I know that dolls cannot come to life. I still despise them. I am 17.
When I was little I hated dolls! They scared me like crazy! Of course, I was much to proud to admit it. So, my parents,grandparents,aunts and uncles, never saw a problem in buying me dolls....lots of dolls! I had at least 20! I use to think they were staring at me, moving when I didn't look. Or they were planning to hurt me.
So, I tried to hide the dolls random places, hoping they'd go away. I hid some under my parents bed, some i hid in my sisters closet. Onetime i took a bunch of them with me to my grandparents house and hid them there.
But all this did, was make my family buy me MORE dolls!
Let's just say, it took me much longer to sleep then it normally should.
As a kid I once thought that I could fashion myself a smashing pair of earrings by sticking some small ball-bearings from a little pinball toy in my ear. I had to go to 2 hospitals to get them syringed out.
I used to think that barbies were real, I would leave them in the room and close the door and then come running back hoping to catch them talking.
