The meaning of Toy in dream | Dream interpretation


Dreams that feature childhood toys can be either encouraging or discouraging, depending on how you feel in your dream. On the one hand if you dreamed of playing happily in a toy shop for hours and hours, your dreaming mind may be reminding you of the importance of having fun every now and again, and playing childish or adult games. Has fun or relaxation been missing from your life recently? On the other hand, if you feel bored by your dream toys, then perhaps it is time to put your energy to productive use. Dream toys may also express a wish to assert control over your adult life at a time when you may be having problems.

Breaking toys may express your frustration with problems you find hard to resolve.

If toy dreams suggest asserting control over problems, dreams which feature puppets or dolls are about asserting control over other people. Dreams about dolls can express your feelings and beliefs about your parents but they may also represent your feelings about being manipulated by people close to you in waking life. To dream of a rocking horse bears the same symbolism as a dreaming of horses in general, but it can also express a yearning for the comfort and security of childhood with its gentle, rocking motion. One of the most ancient and well-known toys, the spinning top may suggest a trance-like state or meditative frame of mind in which you look into the depths of your unconscious. The wailing sound it produces may also be associated with sorrow and bereavement. Cuddly toys, especially teddy bears, illustrate comforting and soothing aspects of your life. See also Toy entry in BIRTH AND CHILDHOOD.

TOYS

Dreaming of toys is interpreted as a repressed desire to return to childhood. It indicates a fear of commitment and adult responsibilities. The dreamer feels overwhelmed by the weight he carries and seeks refuge in a safe, happy time, free from obligations and responsibilities.

If this dream is an unconscious way of expressing your hidden feelings, you should ask yourself which aspect of your life is represented by each toy. On the contrary, it could be that the dream is advising you to stop playing with your life and that you need a more practical, grounded point of view.

In general, this is a favorable dream, since it augurs happiness for children and their families.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
