When I watched the commercial for the Goosebumps board game and all the monsters came out after the guy won, I was always afraid that if I ever won the game the monsters would come out and congratulate me. So needless to say I never played the game.
When I was a child, I would occasionally visit my Aunt's house. She had a life-sized porcelain doll in a glass case inside her living room. It was holding a basket. I thought that in the basket there were knives and axes, and everytime I looked away she would move. I also thought that at night she silently broke out of the case and tried to kill me and my cousins. I have always hated dolls. Now I know that dolls cannot come to life. I still despise them. I am 17.
When I was about 8 or 9, there was a My-Size Barbie doll that came with a butterfly costume. I thought that if you wore the costume you would turn into a butterfly. I was disappointed when I found out the costume wouldn't fit me.
I used to think that 'non toxic' was a color. I always did wander why is was written on every crayon.
I used to be afraid of monsters attacking me in my sleep, but I also thought that monsters would die if they went in the light. So I then figured that my teddy bear must put out some kind of invisible light that only monsters could see.
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.
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!
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!
When I was little I used to believe that my stuffed animals were alive because i would sleep with them all around me and when I woke up they would be gone or in different places.
i used to think that my stuffed animals would come to life when no ones there so i would keep them everywhere i was but by the time i was getting older it wasnt normal or very impressing to "girls" if you know what i mean so whenever i cam home i would run straight to my room and never get any luck still do it and im 17 XD
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.
I use to believe that if I let the batteries die in a remote control car and leak and the car wouldnt work that it would eventually explode, so I hid it at the bottom of the toybox under as many toys as possible and didn't touch it waiting for it to explode.
For Christmas when I was 8, my grandma got me a doll. A few months later, I accidently ripped the leg off. I got scared of it, and threw it under a corner of my bed. From then on, I beleived that she was out to get me. I would jump onto my bed so that I wouldn't have to walk next to her. I also learned how to run up the stairs 2 at a time because i thought that she was chasing me and could get me on the stairs.
I still go up the stairs 2 at a time.LOL
I used to think that my teddies and fluffy toys were alive and would move around the room and play and chat with each other, but they would only do it after I had left the room so that I wouldnt find out. I used to try and catch them out - I'd make a big point of saying out loud to myself 'hmm im thirsty i think i'll go to the kitchen and get a drink!!' then i'd go out of the room and pull the door shut and make loud footstep noises, gradually getting softer as if i was walking down the hallway... then i'd wait for a few seconds and burst in, hoping to catch them in the act. It never worked, they were always too quick for me. I figured that they must have known what i was up to :D
When I was really little I had this toy play kitchen thing and I believed that I could actually cook stuff with it. One day when I wasn't looking my mom put cookies into the microwave part and I was not at all surprised to find them.. I was however surprised to find that I could never make them again ):
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.
I used to believe that everyone on earth was just really dolls for giants to play with.
My Sister Once Said That Polly Pocket Was A Real Girl That Got Shrunk To Doll Size And Turned Into A Doll.
When I was little I used to believe my toys were living things so every night I picked up one of my plushies and said "sorry I'll sleep with you tomorrow" I really thought I would hurt their feelings.... I'm 19 I stil sleep with plushies
Around the age of six I developed a pecking order for my stuffed animals about which I liked the best, therefore which could sleep closest to me. Then I developed tremendous guilt about playing favorites because I thought they'd be hurt if I left anyone out. I got them all into a rotation of who got to sleep closest each night. It was very complex and a lot of work. That guilt continued even as I got older and when I stopped sleeping with them and put them away I acted terribly sad and apologetic so they wouldn't feel bad.
