When I was little, thanks to ideas planted in my head by Toy Story, I used to think that toys came to life when you left the room and went back to their old positions when you came back. I'd say loudly "I am leaving now" to my toys and stand outside my room to try and hear them, but then I thought that they knew I was there. I'd tell them "You know, it's okay, I know you guys can talk, you don't have to hide it," but they'd never talk. Finally I called them all meanies because they wouldn't talk, then I apologized and "forgave" them for not talking, and said that if they wanted, they didn't have to talk to me. I was a weird little kid.

when I was 3, my sister got a barbie phone. I liked it so much, I asked if I could play with it all the time. Sometimes she would let me, sometimes she wouldn't. I stole it on her birthday and brang it to my room. I pressed the number 4, (because it was my favorite number), and made a wish. I said " I wish I had a barbie phone for my 4 birthday. I actually belived it! I couldn't wait. Then on my 4 birthday, I got 2 barbie walkie talkies. I still wanted the phone more. From that day on, Ibelieved everyone got a barbie thing. Even boys! LOL!!!

I bought some Tinkerbell "fairy dust" at the Disney store when I was about 8 or 9. Of course it was just a bottle of glitter, but I thought that if I sprinkled it on myself, I would be able to fly, just like in the movie.

When I was younger, I'd watch commercials on television for toys, and I thought it was such a great thing that "batteries [were] sold separately" to the point that I would tell my parents that.

I used to believe that whenever i was away from home at school, my stuffed animals came to life and played games together until I got home, when they'd rush back to where I'd left them so I'd never know.

I used to think that all my stuffed animals had feelings, and If I neglected one that it would try to kill me in my sleep, So everynight before I went to sleep I would spend a good 10 minutes organizing my 20-something toys and telling them that I loved them all equally and If one of them fell of the bed in the middle of the night that I would rescue it as soon as I woke up. Yeah I was dumb. Thanks alot Toy Story.

I used to think all of my toys and stuffed animals were alive and had feelings, so I would tuck them all in at night and talk to them so they wouldn't be sad. I also wasn't able to sleep unless I thought they were all in a comfortable sleeping position... haha.

I used to strongly believe that toys were alive, like in Toy Story. And that everytime you blinked, they moved. So whenever I blinked I would do it quickly so I could try to catch them in action.

I used to believe that toys could talk and stuff like in toy story. So I would set my cowboy and indian plastic things up and walk out of my room. Go down the hall. Then run back and try to see them fight.

One time during a sleepover at my house when I was about 8 or 9, my friends and I got a little crazy and began thinking that the Barbies were going to kill or hurt us. We locked the barbie in a room and went downstairs for a long time and when we came back up we were CONVINCED that the barbie has changed positions, so we tied some yarn around her neck and hung her from a doorknob. I then thought that Barbies could scream silently and that all her friends could hear her screaming when we hung her, so we had do the rest with all the other Barbies. After hanging them, we threw them in the outside garbage can so that if they came back to life, they wouldn't be able to ge us. We were kind of paranoid, sadistic little kids...and i guess we still sort of are in a way...

When i was about 5 and Toy Story had just come out in the cinemas, i had the pig toy that was from the film in a happy meal from mcdonalds. i used to put the pig in my room and when i went downstairs the pig would have moved to another part of my room as if coming to life like in the film! i thought this was actually happening and got really excited and then a few yrs later i found out my parents have moved it :P

When I was younger, I always wondered if my stuffed animals, or toys in general, would come to life when I left, like in the movie "Toy Story".

When an old friend of mine was a little girl she cut off her own hair and glued it to her Barbie doll's head because she thought it would grow on Barbie's head.

I used to believe that toys watched me after watching toy story. I would check everyday if my toy moved at all.

I used to think that remote controlled cars could eat me. Whenever my cousins played with it, I climbed up on the couch trying to avoid being eaten.

When my grandparent came back from a trip to hawaii they gave my father a little bike that worked just like a real one. He showed it to me and told me that a mouse rode up to the house but our cat had scared it off and it left its bike. I believe that for SO many years!

When i was younger my parents thought i was nuts cause everytime they tried to tuck me in it was hard cause i had every single stuffed animal i owned on my bed. i believed that if i didn't have them all on my bed that one of them would feel left out, and wouldn't like me any more.
