my toys could and did come alive while i was sleeping, i used to pretend to be asleep, then sit bolt upright to try and catch them out. it never worked....its like they knew i was pretending!
i swear my teddy bear is alive. i used tobe afraid of it and still am. because it said to not be afraid and it was my gaurdian.
When I was very young I used to always find marbles in the dirt of our garden. Because of this, for a very long time, I truly believed that marbles grew in the ground.
When I was little my parents had to take away my toys, because there was lice all over them - I didn't know that then - and they made up that they were having a vacation at the beach having a great time. They even told me that it might be a permanent vacation. I was convinced that I would never see them again.
When i was little i used to think that the ball pits in playgrounds had water in them, and that i would drown if i went in. It wasn't until i was too big for them that i learned otherwise.
I used to think that my stuffed animals got angry if I gave some more attention than others. every night before bed, I would kiss them each goodnight and plead for them not to attack me in my sleep.
When I was little I use to believe that we were like barbie dolls and people played with us and made us walk and eat
I used to believe that my stuffed animals should be rotated every night for which one would sleep with me or else the stuffed animals would get jealous if I slept with only one and would kill it.
One year, when I was like 7, I got a Super Nintendo for Christmas, but I didn't get it til Dec. 26 for whatever reason. After that, I was convinced that Santa was real and I used to believe that he could hear my thoughts. So one day I couldn't get my batteries into my Gameboy the right way so I left it on the kitchen table and walked away for a little while, sending mental messages to Santa to come help me, expecting to go back in there and find my Gameboy with the batteries and working.
I use to believe that if I cut off my dolls' hair, it would grow back. I also use to believe that my toy animals came to life when i left the house so I use to tape them down.
When I was little, I always believed that my stuffed animals were alive. They would talk to each other and play together, but only when no one else was in the room. I spent a lot of nights sleeping on the couch in the living room so they could have some fun together.
Also, whenever I dropped them I'd apologize for hurting them and kiss their boo-boos. I'd talk to them to, even though (I thought) they weren't aloud to talk back.
Some kids played with dolls, some kids played with action figures; I played with balloons. Whenever I'd get a balloon, I would name it "Mr. Balloony" and carry it around and talk to it like most kids would to a stuffed animal. Upon reflection, this may explain why to this day I have a fear of balloons popping.
I used to believe that everyone on earth was just really dolls for giants to play with.
I used to believe that every time I got out of bed at night, my toys would be alive and they would find me awake and try to come and eat my toes and fingers.
I believed that my toys were alive, so I would explain to them before birthdays and Christmas that new toys would be coming to my room but I still loved all of them equally.
I used to believe that if I didn't introduce my new Barbies to the old owns, they wouldnt get along. So every Christmas, I would set all the Barbies out and introduce them to each other.
i thought cannibals were the same thing as cannonballs. i remember my mother being very surprised when i told her i wanted a pirate ship with cannibals for christmas!
I believed my baby dolls hair grew just like mine. While giving my doll a haircut, my Mom tried to tell me it wouldn't grow back. I knew mine did and couldn't believe my Mom was so stupid.
When I was little my mom told me that dolls had actual feelings. She told me that if I was mean to my doll she could feel it. I believed her for a long time and I was always very careful when I played with them. One day I was playing with friends and we were playing with our dolls, I don't remember what led up to me saying "Doll's have feelings too". But my friends laughed at me hysterically and it was that day that I realized my mom had tricked me and I was angry at her and embarrassed too.
Once i saw a commercial, where a kid could transform a blank piece of paper into a 100 dollar bill, with this little machine. I thought to myself, if we had one we would never be poor again. So I took all of my savings, and bought that magic machine at the toy store. I returned home, full of anticipation, only to discover that it was "just a magic trick", and you needed a 100 dollar bill to make one. Boy was I disappointed!
