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.
one time i really wanted a pink cloth child's wallet at a toy store, that had a kitten holding a star-topped magic wand painted on it. somehow i thought this picture meant the small wallet contained a full-sized wand, and when my mother bought me the wallet i was crushed that this was untrue. i felt absurdly self-pitying about my deprived childhood afterwards.
Some of my 'little people' toys would float in the bathtub and some of them would sink. As a child, I was convinced that the ones that could float must have taken swimming lessons.
i use to believe....that cement trucks carried balloons to the Bozo circus....lol
My grandpa had a knack for kite flying. He could send pieces of paper all the way up the string to the kite. One day, one fell off that I didn't see: he rubbed it on the grass and then told me it hit the moon; the green edges on the paper were proof, since the moon is made of green cheese. Unfortunately, I was laughed out of "show and tell" in kindergarden when I related this story.
I used to think little tiny people lived inside of my toy cars. But when I tried to look inside to see them they would hide.
When I was little I used to think that when we left the house another family lived there and played with my toys. If a toy went missing I blamed it on the "other" child who lived there when we left.
I used to believe that all my stuffed animals would talk once I left the room. Since I didn't want to start an all out stuffed animal brawl, I would rotate them everyday around my bed so they wouldn't get jealous.
after watching the borrowers as a little kid and that being my favorite movie i tholught that my dolls would come to life and talk to each other. so when i woke up i was so excited to see if they moved in a different spot...no luck the dolls never moved but i belived tha10
when i was a kid, back in the 80's, i had this doll called patty play pal and she woudl talk and i used to believe she was chuckies girlfriend. i accidently saw the movie thanks to my older brothers and since that day patty play pal lived deep in the closet somewhere.
I had three cabbage patch kids and many other kinds of dolls. I used to rotate which one I would take out with me, which one I would sleep with, and which ones I would play with because I thought they would get their feelings hurt and kill me when I slept. I think my mom put that fear in me because cabbage patch dolls were so expensive. She felt if she paid for three of them, I'd better play with all three of them!
when I was little i used to pick out shapes in by 'bobbly' window while I was on the toilet. one day i picked out little red riding hood. i told my mum and she helped me trace it saying 'it will come alive tonight'. I believed her and next morning i saw a girl in a red raincoat about my age. I hugged her and dragged her off to play. she is now my wife.
I used to believe if the roundabout went too fast it would fly up into the air and I would be killed when it landed. I never went on when any big kids were pushing it.
when I was little I used to think my toys were alive and got jelouse if I would sleep with one and not the others so I slept with all of them
i used to believe that my stuffed animals had walked around my room in the night when i was asleep because i woke up to find them lying on the floor next to my bed.
