Not really a belief, maybe it is. When I was little I used to pee underneath my slide in the backyard, because I thought that if i went inside, my outdoor toys (slide, swings, sandbox, etc.) would vanish.
My best friend convinced me when I was five that we could drive to Christmas in a toy firetruck. This was a very exciting concept.
I used to believe my stuffed animals had feelings and would cry whenever they accidently got sat on or my sisters would torment them
When I was little, my sister and aunt and I were spending the night with my great grandmother. When we went to bed, she told us not to sleep with plastic dolls because the devil would get inside of them and kill us while we were sleeping. In fact, she said that is what happened to her sister.
So, my sister and I would never play with Barbies or other such dolls. We would take turns putting them in the closet at night. Then we would become scared that we had hurt their feelings and they would come after us anyway, so we would apologize to them and carefully line them up in the hallway.
My mom never understood why we wouldn't play with the dolls, but she found them lined up outside of our door in the morning. Actually, to this day, I won't let my 2 year old daughter sleep with plastic dolls. Even though I know it isn't true, I still find it creepy.
When I was about 6 or 7 I had one of those dolls that if you lift its arm, its hair grew. Well from that doll, I convinced myself that if I cut my pound purries whiskers that they would grow back, because the hair did on that doll. I cut its whiskers, and when I was done reality hit. I was devestated...I couldn't believe what I did to my pound purrie. I even told the stuffed cat that her whiskers would grow back...it took a lot of convincing of the cat to cut her whiskers in the first place.
I used to think that maxi pads were Barbie beds, all of my barbie's slept on nice big cushiony beds. When my big sisters would run out of them they would send me to the corner pharmacy to get them some "Barbie beds"
when i was little i used to believe that if i didn't kiss all my stuffed animals each night before i went to bed that they would get mad and kill me during the night. there were about 100 of them just next to my bed and my bedtime used to take forever because i had to kiss each one.
when i was youger i used to believe that teddies protected you from evil things and that if you didnt treat them good they wouldnt protect you
I used to believe that ET could come and kill you at night--but only if you had all of your stuffed animals in a big group. I always had to have mine in a big long single file line--that way, ET couldn't hide among them.
i used to believe that my barbie doll`s hair would grow back if i cut it.. so i did try cutting it but it never grew back.. XD
I was a little girl and my Mom told me she was going to buy me a "jumper". I was so excited because I thought she meant like a "Pogo Stick". I couldn't wait til she got home and when she did, the only "jumper" she had for me was a dress! Can we say "DISAPPOINTING"????
When I was about 9 years old, I won a 6 foot tall yellow rabbit in a drawing. I propped it up in my room and, perhaps misled by it's life-sizeness, convinced myself that if he didn't eat, he would die.
I remember sneaking some of my mom's cherry cobbler in my room one night and trying to feed the rabbit. He didn't eat it, but I still have a vivid memory of his yellow and white face with red cherry juice on his felt tongue and whiskers.
I used to believe that all of the favorite toys and clothes I lost ended up caught in a Lost Things Loft, and that all I had to do was find that loft and I'd find all my old toys. I even had vivid dreams about that loft, full up to the knees with old loved toys. I'd wake up and try to draw a map before I "forgot" where the loft was so I could find it later that day.
When I was a kid, I used to sleep with my Dapper Dan doll. Then one Christmas, I was given a teddy bear and believed that I could not sleep with both. So I sat my Dapper Dan down and explained to him very compassionately that he could no longer sleep in my bed, but that it was okay because I had set him up with his very own apartment on the headboard complete with his own tv, toys and refridgerator and that he could come visit at any time.
I had a dream once that I was one of my dolls...and I could taste whatever food I saw. So I started to believe that my dolls and stuffed animals could do the same. I would put a little bit of food in front of their eyes and then up to their mouth so they could taste it.
I used to believe that when you leave a toy out by it self. It wil have little party with other toys.
WHEN I WAS ABOUT 4 OR 5 ,I WAS READING THE LABEL OF MY TEDDY BEAR AND USE TO SEE;MAD IN JAPAN SO FOR ME ALL THE JAPANESE WAS MAD AND WE SHOULD NEVER GO THERE CAUSE WE'LL GET MAD.BUT IT WAS MADE IN JAPAN THE E WAS GONE.THANK GOT I KNOW NOW
i was a big GI Joe fan in the 80s, when i saw Sgt Slaughter in a wrestling show, i thought GI Joe and cobra were real(i was only 8)
i used to believe that if i didnt spend equal amounts of time with each stuffed animal then one would get jealous and kill me in my sleep.
When I was little I was always afraid that our house would be on fire, and that my toys would burn inside the house. So for a period I had all my toys in boxes by the door so that if the house started burning I could just grab them on my way out. This never happened, however, so after some time I put the toys back into my room.
