For your Halloween pleasure we’ve tap into parents’ deepest fears and re-named some monsters throughout history.
Prepare to be frightened!
Obviously what all toddlers turn into when they knock over the precious creations of your elder child. aka Godzilla, considered to be King of Monsters, made famous in Japanese films.
Your toddler, when given the wrong bowl at breakfast. aka Cerberus, the watchdog for the entrance to hell.
That creature your 5-year-old wants you to pretend to be during an imaginary play session, while 5-yr-old is the ‘good guy’. aka manticore, a person-eating lion body + man head + porcupine quills + scorpion tail.
The monster under the bed, as you imagine it, waiting quietly to bite your precious little one. aka Nandi bear, an imagined East African animal that kills humans and domesticated animals.
A physical embodiment of social media. Its third eye represents everyone seeing ALL of you. aka Cyclops, a one-eyed giant.
When your child is taking a bath or swimming in the lake or ocean, this is what swam by and tickled/scared them. aka Nessie, the Loch Ness monster from Scotland.
Creepy multi-legged reptile that lives in your basement or behind your washing machine. Uses its long prehensile tale to steal socks and eat them. aka basilisk, a mythical reptile with a lethal gaze.
