How do you save yourself from the Demon Baby Toyol?
Short answer… Toys and mirrors
Tuyul, also known as a Toyol, is the spirit of a child who died before he was born according to Malaysian mythology. Through black magic and rituals, a witch doctor can bind it to their owner. This toyol is now bound to obey the directions of its owner which usually includes stealing, robbery, pranks and in rare cases murder.
Compared to other types of spirits, Toyol can be described as having the appearance of a newborn or a toddler. It has red eyes and green skin. Its teeth are sharp, and it can be hard to spot except with the aid of magic.
If you think that a Toyol is visiting your home or business, you can try placing children’s toys around the room and being a child, the toyol will forget what it came for and start playing with them. Also, since it cannot stand its own reflection, mirrors can be placed around the house to protect it.
This is another instance of mirrors being useful to rid yourself or negate the evil effects of a being in mythology. The Ninki Nanka in Africa also requires a similar defence mechanism to escape it.
