Subliminal Messaging for young users
on February 17, 2012
I am a homeschooling Christian mother of 5. I am going to say flat out that I am really disappointed and glad that I didn't spend much money on these.
From days when I was familiar with Wicca and other pagan religions, these dice gave me a creepy feeling. I was going to use them as a home school tool for my 6 yr old who has trouble enjoying reading and story telling.
My problem with them is strictly the images. Some are borderline evil (like the shadow monster one from Voodoo-type religion) There is a scarab, a seeing eye, a pyramid, and a few other things that suggest these cubes are created for more than just "fun". If you wanted a kid to tell "stories" you could have done images like a bat, a ball, some animals, something else besides these images that are VERY tied to pagan religions. I am not saying you have to put Jesus on them either, but come on. My kids wouldn't even know how to tell a story about a shadow monster, a scarab, and the seeing eye. Would yours?
