This doll will kill us all
Sometimes when you confront the things that scared you in your childhood, they don't seem all that frightening now. This golly, however, still scares the living crap out of me. It was made for me by one of my Dad's Romanian work colleagues and I remember, aged about 5, asking him to take it away. He did. He brought it back yesterday, 35 years later.
Everything, from the mournful blue eyes and sharp little teeth, to the weird hips and shrunken head, shout out "I will kill you all", loud and clear.
Has anyone got a scarier home-made toy?
