I admit itI was a toy torturer.
My books were sacred, but dolls, Matchbox cars, stuffed animals,
and even game pieces found themselves being put to uses that
would have made child psychologists cringe. (As my mother was
a child psychologist, I have firsthand evidence of the truth
of this statement.)
You probably saw the wonderful
movie Toy Story, with its toy-warping villain Sid. If
youre like me, you remembered doing the same things he
didand much worse. (Though thankfully without fear of retribution
from our victims.)
This page is dedicated to documenting
as many instances of toy torture as possible. Contributions
