If you're familiar with toys, I'll bet you would agree that there are some that can scare the bejeebies out of you. You know...the ones that start talking around two in the morning for no particular reason at all...kind of like Chucky?
Take our bathtub for instance. Bathtub you ask? Yes. Bathtub. Our little girl likes to turn our bathtub into a swimming pool for her dolls. It's disturbing enough to walk in your bathroom to find a tub full of floating dolls with menacing smiles on their faces, but she put one of her dolls that "talked" in the water along with them.
We tried to pull it out quickly, but it was too late. The doll was toast. When you pushed her button, she kind of garbled something about being "friends" that made the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Not wanting to throw her away, our daughter said that she would still play with her even though she was "bowken".
Fast forward to the middle of the night and (you guessed it) the thing starts talking by itself. I sat straight up in bed and all but expected it to be standing in the doorway just grinning at us.
We've had toy fire trucks go off, play puppies bark, musical instruments begin to sing, just about anything with batteries has freaked us out at any given time. Psycho baby doll with the crazy eyes absolutely took the cake though.
We ended up opening the doll's back and pulled the batteries out so she would stop altogether. I swear, even the cat would walk around the thing with her back arched up.
I'll sleep better tonight knowing that scary doll won't be able to "talk" to us anymore. If I hear even one peep out of that bathroom though, unlike the horror movies, you can bet your boots there's one girl that won't be going in to check it out.
