31 Mythical Creatures Used to Scare Children into Behaving from Around the World [Infographic]


There are far more disturbing and malicious creatures out there to terrify children into going to bed or doing their homework than just the boogeyman hiding in the closet. All across the globe, parents have employed timeless tales of disturbing and grotesque monsters, ghosts, and demons to scare children into obedience.

These boogeyman equivalents discourage kids from wandering into dark forests, staying out late after school, peeking down wells, avoiding bedtime, or just being overall brats. England has the Black Annis, a blue-skinned witch with iron claws that tans the skins of stolen children and makes it into clothing. Mexico has the La Lorona, the phantom of a woman who drowned her children to win the heart of a man, only to rejected. She drowned herself, and now haunts riverbanks, looking for children to steal and soothe her heartbreak.

This infographic from Playground Equipment (which can be found at PlaygroundEquipment.com) profiles some of the most twisted, haunting creatures that mythology around the world has to offer.
