DD1 was scared of the plug. She was also scared of the dark until recently when she really had no choice but to sleep in the dark, after she broke her lamp.
DD2 doesn't appear to be scared of anything.

DD2 was scared of the sound of packing tape. Wasn't good when we were packing to move, she would scream.
Both my kids hate cockroaches and will squeal and run away if they see one. I don't think that's too irrational - even though they can't hurt them they are gross
DD1 - butterflies
DD2 - birds, loud noises
DS2 - the worst fear yet of hand dryers in public toilets, he gets so scared he turns blue. He couldn't go in to a public toilet until about a year as even the site of one would have him a meltdown on the floor. He can go in now sometimes but he can't go close to one and if someone else uses it he melts-down.
Argh my son had a fear of wind when he was around 3.It started when my neice had her bday at a park and it was soooo gusty and everything was blowing off table.It got ridiculous in the end,he wouldn't go outside like ever.Thank god he got over it,because really wind is everywhere all the time!
We took a holiday to the sunshine coast when ds2 was 3 and he refused to walk on the sand and he would have nothing to do with the surf...he was afraid of sharks. We went to underwater world during the holiday and he wouldn't even look at the sharks. He's 6 now and over his fear
My DS -10 months- is afraid of loud crinkly noise...... Like a tarpaulin being folded, a plastic bag being scrunched or sticky tape being ripped off a parcel.
