    Clowns and still they freak me out. I used to be scared of balloons when they pop and the sound of cardboard as it made my spine shiver.

    Escalators. That first step had to be timed exactly right, or it would drag me under and slice me up.
    Me too, I used to worry that if I didn't get off at the right time I would be sucked in by the belt thing and flattened like a cartoon. I'm 16 now but I still can't go on them without gripping the handrails so tightly and not moving or talking to anyone.

    The burglar in sims 2 hahaha, also that creepy head from art attack
    Someone told me that head was the former presenter of Art Attack, and he'd somehow displeased the producers so they turned him into a talking statue, and that scared the **** out of me. I'm still not convinced that it wasn't true.

    I used to be terrified of lifts but I'm OK with them now. Still wouldn't like to get stuck in one though

    I'm afraid of lifts now, although I never used to be. My fear wasn't helped by the fact I almost got squished in the door of a lift not long ago when it started to close just as I was stepping into it

    Barney wasn't in Dora lol

    Dora had different talking animals
    No, no, if definitely wasn't Barney, I loved Barney! Can't remember a single thing from it but apparently the bookcase was just filled with Barney videos

    This dinosaur was just some animated dinosaur that I was irrationally terrified of
