INTRODUCTION

The insidious glint of its hard, unblinking eye haunts me to this day. My first conscious memory of the diabolical doll creep factor was, until recently, packed away in the section of my mind labeled "Stacey, age 5." When I began putting this book together, I pilfered the attic of my history for creative inspiration.

In 19-blah-blah, we lived in a small house whose only bathroom lay tucked in a corner of the basement. It had a shower stall, a toilet, and a curtain for a door. The basement also housed our play area. During the day, my sister and I would spend countless hours down there. It was safe and fun.

Night was a different story, however. A potty call in the wee hours was a foreboding dilemma. Down the steep, curving Frankenstein castle stairs, past the cast iron thumb-latch of the heavy wooden door, across a gazillion miles of darkness to the nightlight glow of the bathroom. As I sat there doing my tiny business, humming to ward off the willies, I would force myself to not look into the deep shadows of the play area across the room. But inevitably, my glance would crawl to the three-foot-high black shape looming in the far corner. And, if the curtain was pulled back just so, the nightlight would glister off its unsleeping eyes ... eyes that punctured the night veil with sinister menace and twinkling plastic fury as they beckoned to me, "sssStacey, let's play a game."

That creep factor has stayed with me and I firmly believe dolls are more than what they appear and have great potential to plot your doom. In fact, the dolls in this book are doing just that, and we get a frightening peek at their chilling thoughts, disturbing desires, and maniacal plans.

So turn the pages slowly and indulge in your own twisted trip into nostalgic chillmares. Perhaps you may even recognize a freakish childhood companion among this collection of creepy-ass dolls. Enjoy!

That was the coolest book EVAH!!! The truth is that I collect "Creepy-Ass Dolls". I have a shelf full of them! If only the dolls could come alive, I could become the "Demented Doll Queen". The sample was really suckish. It gave me no dolls whatsoever!!!!!!

As a little girl I never played with dolls. I was more into action figures. This was because I could never really get past the look of evil in those glass eyes, no matter how benign the face. And the effect only got worse when you turned off the light and they were bathed in that shadowy glow. This book affirms what I have believed since I was little, dolls are creepy and they like posing for their yearbook picture. This book is what would happen if Chucky met a high school year book staff, though they may not make it out alive, and I'm sure that from this book Chucky would have no trouble finding a number of accomplices. There is wit and humor that gives the reader a good laugh at the names and clubs that were assigned to these dolls, and each and everyone hits the mark. I highly recommend this book to all who, like me, knew from the bottom of their heart that there wasn't something quite right about these little demons. Maybe though you should read it in a well lit rooms, with lost of witness around, just incase your childhood dolls get any ideas.
