Oh, to see the world through the eyes of a child...

We can all think of things that we once saw or experienced as kids that we interpret differently now as adults. These could be as lighthearted as adult jokes snuck into children's movies that passed over our heads as youngsters (click here to see some examples if you're in the mood for a laugh), or situations of a more serious nature.

Regardless, we view the world in a different light as we get older, and that became clear to one TikTok user who recently visited Story Land in Glen, New Hampshire, only to find it creepier than she likely remembered.

She posted this video which, enhanced by the theme from Psycho, reminds us of some of the more unsettling features of the park.

Now, we can all agree that at the end of the day, Story Land is a fun-filled, beloved place that people of all ages love visiting. That said, when we were kids, how did we miss how freaking unsettling some of these animatronics and statues are?

Yes, not all of them are that scary, but the the talking tree with its big moving eyes reminds us of the creepy Christmas trees that you could always find at the nearest Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse. And to this writer, the disguised wolf from Little Red Riding Hood bears a resemblance to the Five Nights at Freddy's animatronics. You wouldn't want to be standing anywhere near these things when the lights go out. Could you imagine if Story Land was ever abandoned one day (heaven forbid) and these characters remain? As one commenter said, it would be straight-up "nightmare fuel."
