Nightmare Fuel: Crochet Babies

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Creepy

I was strolling down the aisle of our local fabric/quilting store looking for fabric for my mother. She is an avid and expert quilt maker. So like any good son, I surprise her with different kinds of fabric and cloth so she can make them into quilts. Everything was going as it usually does when my eyes fell upon a Crochet magazine and the hellish vision upon its cover. 


It was a crochet baby doll. WTF??? I am familiar with nightmarish toys. Chucky, Demonic Toys,, Puppet Master, Annabelle, Billy the Puppet to name a few. But these things!!! Who would even think about giving their children one of the mutations? These things should be labeled child abuse.


Dolls for children are supposed to be cute and cuddly. These things look like they will wake you in the middle of the night as they are dragging your limp body to the gates of hell. Ah you want a doll for Christmas? No Teddy. Nor Elmo. Not even a Cabbage Patch. Here is one that looks like a burn victim after multiple skin graphs. 


Every time I see one of the dolls I get visions of the Simpsons episode where Bart can’t sleep because of the clown bed.  "Can't Sleep, Clown Will Eat Me". Whoever thought these things were a good idea is beyond me. If they would drop the features and just put the classic 2 eyes, then these dolls would become more child-friendly. No face at all would be acceptable.


As it is now, these things are just waiting to take your soul. This gives new meaning to dead doll eyes.
