Doll Gangs

Cherished Dolls to Make for Fun
Better Homes and Gardens
Knox, ed.

Yet another doll book. Yes, I recognize that this is serious hobby for many people. After having seen my fair share of weird dolls in books, I have decided that my creep out factor is when there are too many in one place. Like a gang. As soon as your eyes are closed they will rally and eat your soul. Why would anyone, other than a kid, be so willing to decorate their home with the dolls? (I am also going to include figurines and any other large group of collectibles resembling people.)

Aside from the clown doll (Just no.) I can actually see how using things like spoons and yarn in creative ways is an admirable skill and worthy of a library collection. Just don’t include me in that group.

  1. It’s hard to tell if the mustachioed string doll is a cowboy wearing chaps or a cross-dresser wearing a skirt.

    1. The creepy thing is that he’s carrying a noose. Who’s he going to string up? The flower-girl-doll?

  2. Hey, action figures are people figures and there are many of us who love displaying ours. It’s not all bad.

  3. If toys came to life at night, my living room would be a scorched and cratered battlefield every morning, due to all the robot toys on display….

  4. Society: Be yourself and whatever your “normal” is. Also society: You collect dolls? That’s creepy and weird. 🙁

    1. Yeah, I’m generally fine with clowns (perhaps because I never watch horror movies). But those hands! They will haunt me!

  5. i noticed the feet first. sinister and club-like, as if they would step on your face while you sleep.

  6. “Imagine the squeals of joy you’ll hear from the lucky recipient of this loveable clown”! Nooo… I’m imagining
    more along the lines of screams of terror….burn it. Now.
