10 Creepy Things Children Said About Their Imaginary Friends

Lists, Weird

It’s impossible to know what goes on inside of a child’s mind. We can all look back at some of the dumb things we used to believe, but do we really know how our mind worked? A common trait among children are having imaginary friends — when we can’t hang out with our real friends, we would make people up to pass the time. However, this harmless activity sometimes took a turn into a very scary universe. Here are some of the creepiest stories on imaginary friends that were found on Reddit.

Boy In A Tree

When walking with their dad and niece, “themightyspin” recalled the niece looking up at a tree and saying, “What’s that boy doing up in that tree?” There wasn’t an actual person up there, but they were around a cemetery on a farm.

Yelling At A Rabbit

Never get on “trethompson’s” daughter’s bad side. One minute she’s sleeping on the couch, the next she ended up screaming at the rabbit, “No! You can’t do that! That’s bad! Don’t do it!” Once the parent put the rabbit away, she was sound asleep again.

Shaggy’s Demise

User “caybesbond” recalls when her mother had an imaginary friend named Shaggy. Instead of letting them go, she apparently ended the relationship by “[chopping] him up and put him in the fridge.”

Speaking With Those Who Passed Away

“Enxer” remembered a time when they heard their 2-year-old daughter say, “What? OK, I’ll tell her,” through a baby monitor. She then approached his wife and said, “Mary says you’re doing a good job.” Mary was her grandmother that had passed away.

Flying Stalker

A 4-year-old boy had an imaginary friend with the surprisingly detailed name of Victoria Meadowbrooke. “Wear_Out_Your_Eyes” talked about the friend: “He told us that she was the prettiest girl ever and she floated above his bed [at] night.”

Angel’s Evil Intentions

User “y0m0tha’s” brother appeared to be talking to angels frequently. In one of the conversations they overheard, their brother allegedly told one of the angels, “I can’t kill him! He’s my only dad!”

Creepy Man

“TravelsWithTheDoctor” has a son that talks about a “creeper man” in his grandparents’ bedroom. What does he say when they try to get more details out on the strange man, such as what he looks like? “Oh, he doesn’t have a face.”

Monster In The Dark

A 4-year old boy talked about his friend that hung around in corners of rooms. User “starlinguk” recalled their son saying when the lights were off, the friend would “light the room with red glowing eyes.”

Who Framed Roger?

User “ritzcharlatan” recalled an interesting tale created by their little brother. His friend, Roger, was married with nine kids and lived with their family for three years. However, “Roger wouldn’t be around anymore since he shot and killed him and his whole family.” OK, then.

Gory Details

Babysitting took a creepy turn when a kid described their imaginary friends as being dead. “One had no head. One was an old lady. They were both bloody. The one with no head had insides sticking out of his neck.” If I was in “Baja-Ha’s” situation, I’d probably never babysit kids again.
