Are they trying to give children nightmares?

I saw these "dolls" today at Walgreen's when I was picking up prescriptions.
I think we could use the term "dolls" loosely here.
I would be more tempted to call them...demon, nightmare, terror inducing things.

I feel like I should preface this by saying that I'm not a huge fan of dolls.
Yes, my girls LOVE dolls and have many {and I mean MANY} of them.
I just have a "no creepy dolls in our house" rule.

My dislike of dolls came when I was younger.
I watched an Alfred Hitchcock movie with my dad involving dolls.
The little girl in the movie got a doll as a gift.
For some reason the dad didn't like the doll and the doll tripped the dad causing him to fall down the stairs and died.
Yes, DIED.

Ever since then dolls have kind of freaked me out a bit.
Well, not all dolls, just the kind that look like you might try to kill you if you weren't nice to them.
Like they might be hiding a shank or planning your demise.

These dolls, well, let's just say that they stopped me in my tracks.
Sure, they were a good price and I do so love a deal.
However, I draw the line at demon dolls that might try to maim me and terrify my children.
I mean, we all have to have a line drawn somewhere, right?
