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.
As a child I had a My Buddy doll. My mom loves horror movies, and she was watching Child's Play (Don't remember which one though) and I was being a pest as usual. She told me that my My Buddy doll looked like Chucky. Needless to say it ended up in the hallway that night and my door was shut!
i used to beleive that those little reflectors that you get on some roads were little toy soldiers and i always wanted to stop and get one. because when driving past them fast they looked to me like little toy soldiers.
When I was a kid I used to believe that if I put a regular egg from the fridge underneath one of my stuffed toys a live, baby version of my toy would hatch.
I used to believe that when a bubble popped, it would go to bubble heaven.
There used to be a contest on the back of the Sunday Comics every week for kids - you would color the pic and send it in...they advertised the prizes, i.e. 50 barbie dolls, 30 tops, 25 toy cars, etc.
And I always was amazed and in awe that if I won I would win that many prizes and why did they send one person so many of the same thing! Unfortunately I never did win but it was many years before I figured that the numbers were the TOTAL of the various prizes they awarded! DUH!
