Doll Complex

It’s almost Christmas, and the incessant toy commercials are a frightening reminder of another funny and traumatizing story…

I DONT PLAY WITH DOLLS! Teddies, action figures sure, but not dolls… And I had no idea why… Until a few years ago they brought back a doll from the 80’s… And I remembered…


Christmas of 1988, a decade before the tickle me Elmo fad, the doll of the year was the “Oopsie Daisy Doll.”
My poor dad stood in line from 4am at Canadian tire to get that doll, and he got it.
Christmas morning I saw a large, rectangular box, and I opened
It. There was a doll the same size as me, with blonde curly hair and bright blue eyes.
Dad put the batteries in her and placed her on the floor to crawl for me…
As she began crawling, her head would look side to side and blink her giant eyes at you, while doing this she’d say “mama, mama”
I was so enchanted, my doll was alive, she turned her head to me, blinked her big blue eyes… AND HER HEAD FELL RIGHT OFF! as it hit the ground the doll still said “mama,” and then began crying. Within the two seconds the head fell and the demon doll still spoke I screamed my head off and ran to my room. Even the sight of that doll and id scream bloody murder…

Needless to say, I didn’t play with dolls after that!

    I usually do not leave a response, however
    after looking at through a few of the responses
    on this page Doll Complex | CarolynneScoffield. I do have 2 questions for you
    if it’s okay. Is it only me or do some of these remarks look
    as if they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other places, I’d like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of all of your shared sites like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
