What child's toy was the "Devil!" or "Of Satan!" when you were growing up?

It was Pokemon, Power Rangers, and X-Men for me :P

My fiance told me about when he was younger...his uber-religious aunts took his and his cousins' X-Men toys and burned them because they were supposedly evil.

  • I don't remember any toys being the Devil or Satan growing up. I was allowed to play with whatever I wanted...we just couldn't afford half of it!

  • I don't want my dd to play with Bratz dolls, but not because I think they are of the devil. I just don't like them.

  • well, we werent allowed to watch Power Rangers. ...mom never said they were "evil" luckily my mom was never really very religious. She didnt let us do halloween though. Not until she watched a documentry on the history of halloween when i was 11 and told me that if i still wanted to go that i could. So i did! i've gone every year except last year because i was in Germany. lol
    ...My mom was raised Catholic. But she raised us to be mostly open minded.
