A dream about playing with toys signifies a longing for simpler times or a desire to escape from adult responsibilities. Although, it's likely to be more complicated than that.

It can also represent creativity and a playful spirit. Seeing children play with toys in a dream, on the other hand, often symbolizes innocence, childhood memories, or potential. It may also indicate a need to connect with your own inner child. Both scenarios suggest a need for joy, relaxation, and a break from life's pressures.

Toys is often a colorful and puzzling dream experience to to really give you a single answer for. To really say with any kind of confidence, I would need to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's life story and current environment.

Dreaming of oneself engaging with toys, in the Freudian perspective, may be an unconscious manifestation of a yearning for the idyllic innocence of childhood, a time when the ego and superego were less developed and the id's pleasure principle reigned supreme.

The dream-symbol can have many permutations however. It may also symbolize the latent creativity and spontaneity that often get suppressed in the face of adult responsibilities. Observing children at play in dreams, conversely, could be a projection of one's own inner child, a reflection of the self in its nascent, uncorrupted state. It may also signify potentiality and the anticipation of growth, as children and toys are emblematic of beginnings and possibilities. Both instances underscore the necessity of leisure, joy, and a respite from the rigors of reality.

Dreaming of playing with toys is a spiritual call to reconnect with your inner essence, the pure, unadulterated spirit that existed before life's burdens took hold. It's a divine reminder to embrace simplicity, creativity, and the joy of being. Seeing children play with toys in your dream, on the other hand, is a celestial message about the innocence and potential within you. It's an invitation to nurture your inner child, to remember your beginnings, and to foster growth. Both scenarios are spiritual nudges towards embracing joy, relaxation, and a respite from life's complexities. They are divine signals to remember your true self, unburdened by worldly pressures.
