    21 Wonderfully Innocent Things People Believed As Children That Are Guaranteed To Make You Giggle

    "I thought that people on the TV could see us..."

    When I was little I lost a hat I loved at Disney World and my parents told me that Mickey Mouse found it and gave it to Minnie Mouse, so that I wouldn't be sad. Being that I was (and still am) a massive Disney fan, I couldn't be mad at Mickey for copping my style, so I was like "sure, okay" and BOUGHT IT UNTIL I WAS LIKE EIGHT YEARS OLD.

    Well, this week artist Daniel Marven made me feel better about my childhood self when they asked their followers on Twitter about the "dumbest things" they believed to be true as children. The answers were surprisingly pure and absolutely delightful.
