Toys in dreams not only reflect your desire for more play, or urge you to grow up in some way, they can also suggest nostalgia for childhood that has been lost. Dolls are especially important because they so resemble the human form, and because children endow them with emotions and characters. Your dreaming mind may therefore use a doll to symbolize something or someone in your life. For example, if you stick needles or pins in the doll, or mistreat it in any way, this can represent negative feelings towards a particular person. Many doll dreams use the doll as a target for violence and, if this is the case, it could also refer to how the dreamer felt as a child when smacked emotionally or physically—like a helpless child. Dolls can also represent emotions that the dreamer would like to discharge on someone else, or the feeling of wanting to be a precious doll to someone. It may also express some undeveloped part of the dreamer’s personality and the need to relearn some childhood lessons we may have forgotten.
If you dreamed that you were in a playground surrounded by other children, were you enjoying yourself or did you feel left out? If you felt exhilarated, your unconscious may once again be signaling your need to have more fun in waking life, but if you felt aloof or alone from the other children, it could suggest that you prefer to play no part in the immature behaviour currently displayed by a group of people in your waking life.

For Jung, dreams about giving birth were important because he believed they represented a stage in the process of what he called ‘individuation’, the growth of the human psyche to maturation and wholeness. Birth therefore represents the start of an important new stage in your life and psychological development. We tend to dream of birth at the beginning of a new life stage, way of life, attitude, ability or project. We also have such dreams when we need to let go of the past and come to terms with the new. Birth is symbolic of new beginnings: beginning college, starting or ending a relationship, launching a new career and moving house are all associated with birth themes in dreams. Although women from their teen years onwards tend to have birth dreams more than men, it can happen to anyone at anytime. There may often be something strange or unusual about the birth of the child. These details are important as they can symbolize what part of your life is changing and how others will receive this new development.
Jung also claimed that the symbol of the child, as with the symbol of birth, represents new beginnings and possibilities, and paves the way for future changes in your personality. A common theme in mythology is the ‘divine child’ or mystical hero or savior; for instance, the baby Jesus who saves the world from damnation. The divine child is the symbol of the true self, both vulnerable and pure, but also capable of great transforming power. In your dream, it may represent your true self urging you to explore new possibilities and reach your full potential. Therefore dreaming of a baby or child who could be yourself, one of your own children, a child you know or an unknown child, gives access to your own inner child. We all have parts of ourselves which are childlike, curious and vulnerable, and when we are able to get in touch with these parts we are reminded of our true potential for wholeness.
Although dreams of birth and childhood may appear to be simply nostalgic memories, most dream researchers believe that they have a strong bearing on your current circumstances in waking life. For example, your dream may be telling you that you have forgotten how to play or that you should take a fresher, more innocent approach to life. They may also be manifestations of an unconscious desire to escape from the responsibilities and problems of waking life. In addition, they may represent a part of you that needs reassurance and comfort, or a part of you that needs to care, to love and to begin anew. As such they can represent important psychological, spiritual and physical needs.... The Element Encyclopedia

Vision: Watching healthy children at play: success and good times. Crying, screaming, and sick children, children that are falling down or undernourished, are all a sign of worries ahead. Giving birth to a child: a new job is opening up.
If the child is being baptized: you are returning to your religious faith. Seeing a sleeping child: your future will be free of worries. When a child appears in a woman’s dream, it usually means that she wants a child.
The dream may also indicate that new plans, your job, or other changes are emotionally taxing.
If the child appears time and time again, think about making some changes.
Depth Psychology: The child represents actual conflict situations that have become burdensome, and you are looking for a solution, a way out. This dream also means you want to “start over again” or avoid making a decision by going back home (being protected as a child).

If you are a concerned parent, simply talking about the dream with your child can help dissipate the tension around them. Avoid the instinct to tell the child that it was just a dream and that dreams aren’t real, as this may discourage your child from confiding in you, or simply frustrate them because you don’t take it seriously. You may also have a child who dreams with their eyes open for a few seconds after the dream is over and they are awake. In general, such experiences are not signs of a disorder, but if you are concerned, talk to your doctor or a pediatrician.... The Element Encyclopedia
Your dream childhood home can help give you clues about your current situation and help you examine your personality. What kind of house was it? Was it a large or small house, and did you think it was the same size when you were young? Are you still living in the same house? How many floors did it have? How many windows? What was its shape? Most of us live in square houses with corners, but some people’s houses are round with no corners. Some suggest this may have a profound effect on a person’s psychology because circles represent infinity and thus no restrictions. Can you remember what colors your house was painted in; how do those colors affect your feelings now? If something good always happened to you in a certain room, the color of that room may still make you happy for the rest of your life. Was there a place in your house where you went if you were miserable, or a place where something bad happened? What were the colors and shapes that were involved? Is it a dark place or a light place?
Although you are by no means doomed to repeat past mistakes, your dreaming mind may use your first home as an important reference throughout your life and you may often find yourself trying to work through current issues in the setting of this childhood home. Try to think of such dreams as an opportunity to reflect on your basic beliefs about home and family. Are you repeating patterns from your childhood in a current relationship and situation? Can your dream help you relate the past to your present life and to your life in the future?... The Element Encyclopedia
Unfulfilled instinctual desires provide the energy for manv of our dreams, and the fact that an instinctive desire remains unfulfilled may be connected with a traumatic experience in childhood. That experience has probably been repressed because it was traumatic - causing guilt, anxiety, fear of punishment. (For repression) Your dreams may, therefore, be helping you to uncover the source of these blockages which inhibit the free flow of the natural forces within you.
(2) Recurring dreams may represent some psychic disturbance or problem that originated in childhood. Here are some examples:
Dreams of being naked may sometimes represent recollections of, and perhaps longing for, the paradise of childhood when one w alked
around unclothed without embarrassment. (Sometimes these dreams, as Freud said, express a desire for someone of the opposite sex to present himself / herself in the nude, and stem from sexual frustration.)
Dreams of flying or falling may derive from childhood enjoyment of swings and see-saws. They may express straightforward yearnings for the remembered joy of childhood, but they may also reflect one’s present state of unhappiness and a futile desire to retreat from one’s problematic adult life. A problem is not a thing; rather, it is a relationship - for example, a relationship of conflict either between your external circumstances and your inner wishes (in which case the solution consists in either remov ing yourself from the circumstances or modifying your wishes) or between one part of your psyche and another (in which case the solution is to integrate the part that has been neglected). See also Falling, Flying.
Dreams of failure stem from childhood fears of disapproval from parents. However, die fact that your dreams contain these recollections suggests that you have programmed yourself for anxiety.
If so, begin by loving the child that is still within you: reassure it, tell it that everything is all right and that there is no such thing as failure where there is love. See also Failure.
(3) Dreams which contain recollections of yourself as a free and happy child may indicate a desire to find your true self. The child is then a symbol of the complete and permanent inner freedom and joy which are enjoyed only when you have become acquainted with all the forces within you - both conscious and unconscious - and have established harmonious relationships among them. See also Child, sections (2)-(4).
(4) The child may represent the primitive psyche with which your conscious ego needs to get acquainted if wholeness is to be achieved. This primitive psvche is the mind of humankind in its infancy, before the development of self-consciousness and reasoning. This original awareness is still with us, but buried in unconsciousness.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
If you dreamed of a particularly happy childhood memory—for example, you are seven years old and your dad brings home your first bike, or you are five years old sitting happily on your mum’s lap sucking your thumb—the dream could either be pointing to your nostalgia for a time when life was full of fun, or it could be more concerned with your present feelings of insecurity. The dream is reminding you of a time when life was simple, and in so doing, it compensates you for your current feelings of confusion.
If you are facing a difficult decision, it could also have been highlighting your need to put yourself forward and take a risk by focusing on your new bike—something you wanted but also feared, as you weren’t wholly confident riding it yet.
Consider, too, whether your unconscious has cast archetypal figures in the role of your mother and father. Relation-figures in dreams of childhood can often represent archetypes rather than actual family members. Alternatively, if your unhappy childhood returns to haunt you in dreams (which may reoccur), your unconscious may be forcing you to relive those miserable times in an attempt to make you confront the source of your distress and deal with it, now that you have an adult understanding of the situation. Your unconscious is trying to help you come to terms with what happened to you, so you can put it behind you.... The Element Encyclopedia

2. Steadfast, loving affection and companionship.
3. Return to simple pleasures, a more innocent time. ... New American Dream Dictionary
The dream will indicate what one is doing with this side of one’s nature. Feelings of being like a pet, only being able to do what the person you are dependent upon wishes; receiving or giving affection. Baby pets: if in a woman’s dream, may signify her maternal drive, her desire for children; one’s own dependent self and feelings. See animals. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
1- Whereas in the waking state we mav not be aware of our need for love and affection, when a pet appears in a dream we are reacting to a natural drive in ourselves to give or receive love.
2- On a subliminal level we may be aware that someone else has control over our liv es. We can only- do what is expected of us. Conversely, if we own a pet in a dream we perhaps need to question our ability to look after something or someone more vulnerable than ourselves.
3- Unconditional love which is without dependency often comes from our pets. They are often sensitive to our immediate emotional distress or pain.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

See specific animal.... The Dream Books Symbols
This dream could represent a desire to be treated like a pet—to be “petted”— or to have someone else become dependent on us like a pet.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
If you own a pet in your dream, your unconscious is drawing your attention to your ability to look after someone or something more vulnerable than yourself. It is also a symbol of unconditional love, and being sensitive to the distress and needs of others. Alternatively, it may also represent an aspect of your character or personality that you feel you should use in a particular situation.
If a woman dreams of baby pets, this may signify her desire for children; if adults of either sex dream of baby pets, it may be relating to their feelings of dependency and how they feel about not being fully in control.
If children dream about pets, this may similarly refer to their feelings of being dependent, but will generally represent their desire for unconditional love from their parents or carers.
If the pet you dream about is familiar to you, the interpretation will very much rest on the nature of your relationship with that particular pet.
Dreams in which you are caring for your pet or shopping for pet supplies show that you are paying attention to your emotional needs or making sure you get what you need. But if a pet appears starving, uncared for and without food or water, this suggests that you are not taking enough care of your own basic needs for affection and attention. Perhaps you are too busy and have forgotten your needs, or perhaps you are so wrapped up in caring for the needs of someone else that you have neglected your own. To dream that you are saving the life of your pet suggests that you are successfully acknowledging certain emotions and characteristics represented by the animal. The dream may also stem from feelings of inadequacy or feeling overwhelmed. Dreams which feature pet shows or competitions can suggest pride in your achievements and emotional confidence, Strange and unusual pet
In general, when dreaming of strange or unusual pets that would most typically be found living in the wild, any negative associations with that particular animal, insect or reptile are replaced by positive associations. For example, the general associations with wild rats are extremely negative but if you dream of a pet rat, the associations are quite different. Pet rats in dreams suggest vulnerability, instinctive intelligence and the caring feelings. In dreams, wild snakes conjure up images of worries, fears and poisonous words and deeds; but if you dream of a pet snake, this can indicate healing and enlightenment.
Any exotic or unusual pet is like a small part of untamed nature and in dreams they can represent personal growth, untapped creative energies and a sense of new-found respect, wonder, curiosity and excitement about life and the adventures it sends your way. Take the Madagascar hissing cockroach, for example, which is kept by some people as a pet. The very name sends a chill up the spine of some people but those people who keep such cockroaches as pets are fascinated at the elaborate rituals these creatures have developed to defend territory, produce offspring or simply to identify themselves. So if a hissing cockroach or any other scary creature-turned-pet such as a tarantula or Bengal tiger appears in your dreams and you are happy to care for it, this is a sign that you are conquering your hidden fears.

but they can also suggest the potential for arrogance.
Animals symbolize the untamed and uncivilized aspects of yourself, so to dream that you are fighting or struggling with your pet suggests that you are trying to reject or hide your need for affection and companionship in waking life. To dream of talking pets suggests that you are listening to some form of superior or mystical knowledge. What the animal is saying to you will usually be some form of wisdom, particularly if the pet is very old, like a tortoise.

• Iso look at your emotional reactions; are you feeling guilty or sad about something you’ve “known” but haven’t acted upon? In dreams pets, due to their domestication, often relate to feelings of responsibility or caring and a desire to be needed and loved.... The Premier in Dream Dictionary
These may be anger, the need to survive, parental urges, sex or procreation, desire for recognition in the social group, maternal or paternal love, home building and spontaneous feelings of affection.
Animals represent these drives free of social convention and expectations. Dream pets also represent your basic nature but, because they are domesticated and integrated into home and social life, they carry a slightly different interpretation. They particularly indicate the desire to be loved or petted, and they are most often associated with feelings of responsibility or caring.
Your dream will indicate whether you have indeed cared for and ‘house- trained’ these feelings, or whether they have been caged and aren’t being cared for. The action in the dream will suggest what you are doing with this aspect of your nature. According to Jung, if images of starving, out of control, violent or destructive pets and animals appear in your dreams, this indicates that you have become estranged from your instincts and closed the door to your inner nature. It may also reflect your feelings about becoming pet-like and whether or not you have become overly dependent on the demands or attentions of someone else in your waking life.

If you can remember who your opponent was in your dream, is this someone you are battling against in real life? Did you serve ace after ace in your dream or hit that elusive hole-in-one? If so, then your unconscious is referring to what you feel is an outstanding performance or ability in waking life. Are other people there to admire your success or is your triumph a lonely one in your dream? If, however, you missed a shot or putt, this suggests that your current lack of discipline or dedication is weakening your chances of success in the real world.
