Okay most of us here are basically toy collectors or enthusiasts but recently my mum started questioning my choice of toys and my method of displaying them. A little background here, I'm a born Muslim as are my parents but we're moderate for the most part. Recently there was a case of people reporting toys (or primarily dolls) being seen walking or talking by themselves like the whole Teletubbie myth back in the Teletubbies hey-day. Not that it's taboo for Muslims to play with toys or dolls and my parents have never questioned my Transformers collecting hobbies but once I started on the MOTUC stuff, my mum started to voice her concern. I think its primarily the Skull and demon motiffs that freak her out (Skeletor, Scare-Glow, Hordak...etc) and she asked me to have them shifted in a place she couldn't see them. For the most part, I think someone might have gotten into her ear about toy-collecting being akin to Idol-worship or some such. I've always been conservative about the type of merch I buy (nothing racy like Japanese anime statues or overly demonic like MacFarlane stuff) and per her wishes I don't position them anywhere in the direction of my daily prayers. Do you guys have the same issues with your more conservative parents/partners either from a cultural view or a religious one?
