squicked

Rosey has a....hold your breath....wait for it....ANOTHER baby doll.* This one bugs me more than the toddler-sized Blue Boy, though.

From the first look, it appears normal. Cute, even!


Then Rosey stripped off its tiny clothes and I was...disquieted, to say the least.

Mama? How come Baby's tummy is a different color than his arms, head, and legs?

But that was a small thing. Really, when the doll had its' clothes on, who could tell?

But then I saw it...


The molded plastic neck fat.


And I was squicked.



*The gender thing kicked in suddenly. She's always been happy playing with blocks and Cass's dinky cars. Recently, though, I have a house full of plastic dollies and she's feeding and burping and changing and giving them bottles all.damned.day.

Yuck. That doll is creepy-looking. Is it supposed to be a boy doll? If so, um, where are its boy parts?

Eeeeewww, that neck fat is not nice.

hmm plastic baby doll neck fat, that is gross. I tried to give the boys a baby doll -- y'know to balance the testosterone. They take its clothes off and throw it like a football. Some things are genetically predestined.

Ick. Baby doll neck fat ought to be illegal.

That looks like a retiree doll.

Exactly! I should find it a teeny-tiny black and white striped shirt and a whistle, and it could be a referee doll! Or a pullover and some dirty jeans and a little beer bottle and it....
I'm getting too caught up in this.

Whatever. It's WEIRD.

My husband used to sell collectibles (anything from figurines to plates to dolls, etc.) But while the Elvis collector plates made me laugh, most of the dolls just plain creeped me out!

Yikes! What ever happened to Cabbage Patch Kids? I mean, it's a doll, I want a little UN-reality!!

Yes, I was squicked too. (Love that word!!)
