Did You Have an Imaginary Friend as a Child?

Ask a Question

I did but only for a very short time, However my Brother had a little boy he would talk to every day for years- although we think he was more ghost than imaginary! when asked my brother said he was a little boy who got killed in the war and would describe jobs, the army and a whole different era! So did any of you have an imaginary friend?

Yes my imaginary friend was called Jennifer . Mum had to keep a seat for her at the table and she had to have a meal laid for her when I ate . ( though this wasn’t always complied with)

Jennifer was my scapegoat frienD who would always get the blame if I’d done something wrong . ‘ it wasn’t me - it was Jennifer !’

I cant remember when she stopped being around but she was there for some length of time ; listening to me and taking part in my imaginary games . I guess I wasnt a very friend because I blamed her for my misdemeanours but she was a good friend to me . She brightened my lonely childhood .

No... i always wanted one, but i wasnt creative enough to actually believe it / see it 😂 I feel like I maybe had an imaginary dog that I would stroke and cuddle though.... 🤔

I dont think I had a imaginary friend lo term but I definitely used to do imagination games where I pretended to be talking to other people. Our imagination is such a wonderful thing!

Yeah I did for a short while. My parent would make me stand at the door waiting to go somewhere while they rushed around to find all the things they needed. I would see this very odd wizard standing there. I was a little scared of him.
