The Ancient Egyptians believed that when they died they had to travel through the Underworld. Their hearts were weighed against a feather. If your heart was lighter than the feather (because you had been good) then you could get to the land just like Egypt. If you had been bad then your heart was gobbled up.

We weighed our toys to see which were heavier and lighter. Luckily none of them got gobbled up though!
