Dream of Toys – General Interpretations

Dreaming about toys can be an indication of your fear of commitment or that you want to go back to your childhood days. Alternatively, they can also mean that a baby will soon arrive at your house, or that there is a phase of boredom in your life right now.

Toys can appear quite frequently in your dreams, especially if you have little children all over your house. But even if you don’t, these things can hide deeper meanings.

Each dream of a toy depends on the type of toy and of course, the dreamer. So come on, let’s get started!

1. You are scared of commitment

Dreaming of toys can be a big signal that you are scared of committing to someone.

You don’t wish to take on any major responsibilities and you would rather stay carefree and childish instead of becoming mature.

2. You feel nostalgic

Another general interpretation of dreaming of toys is that you want to go back to your childhood.

You feel nostalgic and your childhood serves as a reminder of happier times. You greatly long for those happy times again.

3. There will soon be a new member of your family

We always associate toys with children, for obvious reasons.

So, another dream meaning of toys is that there will be the arrival of a new member in your family. A baby will soon come, who will lighten up all your lives.

4. You feel bored

Dreaming of toys can also indicate a phase where you feel stagnant and bored. There’s no real progress happening in your professional or personal life, so there is nothing much to entertain you right now.

5. You adjust according to your family’s wishes

Lastly, seeing toys can also mean that you are someone who always puts your family’s needs before yours. You tend to sacrifice your happiness and comfort so that your family members can be happy and safe.
