I don't know if this show was trying to capitalize on the movie Coraline's button eye idea or vice versa, but when these dolls blink I swear I can see the dark lord swimming in the bits that are supposed to represent pupils. My kids have these dolls (or rather, used to) laying all over the house and they are the freakiest toys to step over in a dark hallway ever. I'd rather walk through a mine field of Legos than see one of these dolls at 2am in my home. Maybe this irrational fear of this particular kind of doll stems from watching The Tommyknockers as a small child.
This scarecrow may have kicked off my life long insomnia.
There are other creepy toys that my children have found a way to smuggle into our home, but LaLaLoopsy dolls, by far, are the scariest things I've ever seen made out of plastic. I'd rather they slept with Chucky dolls than these things.
Look at those adorable dimples. Gingers are so misunderstood.
The only thing creepier than LaLaLoopsy is my daughter's "pet" ceramic chicken Henniwise. She loves that thing and I swear it watches me when I go into her room.
Henniwise catching up on some Vonnegut.
I might just be terrified of Henniwise because her name reminds me of Pennywise The Clown from Stephen King's book It. I am realizing while writing this entry that a lot of my fears are connected in some way and they all kind of stem from either Stephen King novels and movies or childhood toys. I might need to set up a meeting with a counselor after I publish this...
Tim Curry made a very impressive horrifying clown.
Well, now I will get zero sleep this week and I will never be able to read this post again since it has every single thing I'm scared of all in one spot. Sleep tight and never accept the gift of a balloon from a stranger in clown makeup who lives in a storm drain!!
