When my friend Charlie of How To Be A Dad posted this picture on his Facebook wall, my heart immediately leapt with fear. I guess wasn’t expecting to see baby dolls sitting at the table or something. I was feeling slightly lame for my overreaction until I read Charlie’s photo caption, “I don’t know why but this scared the sh*t out of me today at Finn’s school.” Thank goodness it wasn’t just me.
The fact is dolls are scary. They just are.
And it’s not just dolls either. Lots of childhood-related items that are intended to symbolize innocence and goodness are damn frightening! Think about it, there’s dolls, tattered teddy bears, a random child’s blanket on the street, a lone child’s shoe – who lost these items? Why is there ever only one shoe? Come on now, these things are scary.
When I recently encountered scary doll images in the land of stock photography, I had myself a good scare that I just so obviously needed to share.
