Abigail started crying when she discovered the man-baby had no bellybutton. Enough said.

  1. Oh the hair…such a tragedy…

    This is why children are afraid of dolls. She'd fit right in the scene from Poltergeist as a stand in for the clown.

  2. Hey Stephanie, great meeting you at BlogHer last weekend! Didn't have much time with you but still, now I know an A-list blogger! heh.

  3. Ooh, wow. It looks a little off like those dolls you see in the toy section of Walgreens or a dollar store – like you just can't put your finger on it. This one makes me nervous. I'd lock it in the trunk of your car in the garage (also locked) before bed at night. Too many horror movies, I suppose.

  4. I had a scary doll named Patty. She was about the size of a 3 or 4 year old and she wore a smocked dress that either my sister or I had outgrown. She had blonde hair and very very bright blue eyes — so bright that when she was relegated to the basement, where she stood against the wall, her eyes shone, even before you turned on the light. Into my adult years, Patty creeped the crap out of me. My mother moved to assisted living two year ago, and my brother did most of the cleaning, selling, trashing etc. of mom's stuff. I didn't ask him what he did with Patty. I don't want to know.

  5. Did your mother-in-law buy this creature for your daughter? Because that's what mine likes to do. And then she smiles and says my "cute little Sophie girl" (so her words, not mine) looks just like a Cabbage Patch Doll. Then she tells me to join Weight Watchers. My husband must have been adopted. Or stolen from another, nicer, saner family, then reprogrammed to live with that beast.

  6. I Love yur blog ever since the first time you were on the cover of NY Times Style section. Periodically I read your archived posts and it helps me with things i might be struggling with. Thank you.

  7. My best friend had reconsruction surgery after losing a breast to cancer. They took the muscle & skin from her abdomen. Now SHE has no belly button!

  8. This is a doll designed for little girls?? Scary! I had a lovely soft-bodied doll called Maria, with curly hair, a sweet face and long eyelashes to drag around everywhere with me! My grandmother bought up 6 of those dolls and had one always washed and on standby when the one I was using needed a wash or dress change! I graduated up to Strawberry and Bluebell, two more ragdoll types with sweet faces and shocking hair: pink and blue respectively. Mom always made sure my dolls had friendly, sweet faces. We would both spend time scrutinising the doll's face trying to decide a name that would suit her.
