My sisters convinced me that the dog in their Barbie collection, an Afghan hound, had hair that would turn to wood if I got it wet. I thought I wasn't doing it right.
I used to believe that stuffed animals had cameras in their eyes and thats how the toy companies knew what kids wanted in toys. which is why they always came out with better toys the following year.
...That the dolls I had in display cases talked at night and followed my gaze with their own.
When I was little I saw the Child's Play movies with Chucky and the Nightmare on Elm Street movies with Freddy Krueger. I had a girl talking doll that was about the size of Chucky too. I always thought that Chucky, Freddy, and my girl doll were out to get me and would hide under my bed or come when I was asleep. I would sometimes run and jump to get in bed. I also believed that my Cabbage Patch Kids dolls protected me. I had 3 of them so I would lie with 2 on one side of me and one on the other when I was going to sleep.
When I said "shut-down" mode the toy would "power down" , meaning they couldn't feel anything when me and my sister were done playing.We created this because we don't have a shelf and put our toys in a big wooden box thing and the toys would get crowded.
When I was little, one of my friends had a toy fire truck that had a big red button that said "fire" on it. My friend told me that pressing it would make the truck light on fire, so i never played with it ever again.
When I was 5 after I saw ToyStory I thought that my toys would come to life when I left the room or went to bed ect. And If I treated them bad they would come after me in the middle of the night. So I always 'played nice'
When I saw the movie Toy Story it made me believe that if you treated your toys with the utmost care they could come to life. I remember I would go as far as bathing my toys and shampooing my barbie dolls hair.
I used to believe that my toys would get cold at night so i always put them on the bed and under the covers when i went to sleep.
P.S Totally because of toy story. =P
I used to believe that if I went down a tube slide, a metal sheet would slide down the front opening and bottom opening, locking me into a little claustraphobic tube-slide hell. I was terrified!
I used to believe that my stuffed animals would get lonely and sad when I was gone so I had to leave them at least in pairs so they had a buddy to talk to.
I used to believe... that when there was no one in my room, my toys gain life... and start to play by them selves.
...the game Guess Who had a commercial that came on all the time. Wacky people would become animated and talk to you and tell you if it was them or not. I thought the game cards would actually come alive and talk to you. My parents never bought the game for me and would constantly have to talk me down from thinnking the charecters came alive and were interactive... =( soon enough lol
When I was little, I thought that babies in the mothers womb had toys with them, so they couldnt get bored. Think: miniture cars, barbies ect.
As a child I believed that if I didn't have stuffed animals completely surrounding me, it was quite possible I would be murdered in my sleep. My logic was that each animal had to be thick enough in key areas (heart, head, etc.) that a knife could only do minimal damage to me. Something about a child's brain not having adequate information to process probability. Strange.
When I was young I used to believe the words 'MADE IN CHINA' on the back of old toys were referring to a company by the name of 'MADEINCHINA'. I used to wonder how much money the owner would be getting every day, to have a company so massive...
I used to believe that barbie dolls would come alive at night when i was sleeping. i soon realised by the age of 8 that this was a lie lol.
sometimes when the eyelids of my stuffed animals that surronded my bed were slightly slanted so that it looked as if they were quite angry! well i was appauled as i had always taken such good care of them! what more can a 4 year old do?
When i was little, i used to believe that if I let one of my stuffed animals fall on the floor and did not pick it up, it would feel like I didn't like it.
I used to believe that vegetarians didn't play with toys so I bought this vegetarian kid two bottles of V8 for his ninth birthday.
