Turmoil In The Toy Box

"In many instances, there really is no problem with the toy itself. the real danger lies in the occult and violent images connected with the toy which are conveyed to the child via cartoons, television and movies. As a child watches these shows, he sees the producer's idea of the toy's capabilities. He watches the toy as it displays certain "powers" and projects certain images through the cartoon or movie. Then, when the child plays with the toy, he visualizes the toy with the pre-programmed "powers" and characteristics; thus, if the toy displays certain occult characteristics, occult images are being programmed into his mind. It is far better for a child to use his God-given imagination to bring life to a toy, than to have the toy manufacturer determine that toy's characteristics. As we discuss some cute and innocent toys, I will be more specific about those which have been negatively influenced by television or films."

I read this book years ago and loved it! I probably need a re-read of it. Thanks for the reminder.

I had the book when I first started having children many years ago. It really helped us to determine what kinds of toys we brought into our home and what our children watched on TV. I don't know what happened to that book! We have moved MANY times over the years and it has vanished from the bookshelves. Also loved the article on Tangled.
