In rural southern Illinois a toy company began selling “realistic” baby dolls to expectant mothers. But apparently after the mother had her child the toy baby would start crying. Eventually the “rocking motion” advertised to calm it down wouldn’t work, and you couldn’t get it to stop without shaking it. Eventually when it started crying the parent would have to beat it, and the beatings and thrashings would have to get harder and harder to get it to be quiet. The only thing that seemed to shut the baby doll up permanently was the bash its head against the wall to destroy whatever mechanism triggered the crying. On more than one occasion though, neighbors called the authorities to report child abuse, and when the police arrived they found the bloody remains of infants smeared across the walls and the floor. In most cases the mother couldn’t understand why the police were there, she just “got rid of the stupid doll” as she rocked a baby-shaped bundle in her arms.

    This one was interesting but a bit confusing. Was the doll a live baby and she just got confused? or the doll looked to real that it actually had blood.

    @ hippie:
    The ambiguity is what makes this creepy. It’s not known whether or not the baby was real, thus the “insanity” tag.

    To Hippie:

    The mother becomes confused and we are given the impression that she has confused the baby for the doll. Thus the doll becomes the baby and insanity insues.

    my interpretation was always that the mother killed her real baby because she got it confused with the toy.

    I saw that movie! It’s called first born, right? I watched it with my mom and although I liked it my mom refused to accept that the mom actually burried the baby instead of the doll

    Epic story, made me hide all of my little brother’s baby dolls.

    P.s. – good moral as well.

    This reminds me of the story that Saya in Underworld once posted (http://sayainunderworld.blogspot.com/2007/09/case-that-chilled-psychiatrist-to-bone.html)
    about the woman who couldn’t accept the reality of her recluse son’s death and, subsequently, replaced him with a mannequin doll.

    It makes one wonder about the limits of the human mind.

    This is actually one of my fears.Sometimes I daydream about beating up my enemies and saving someone I like, but no matter how hard I try I suddenly imagine beating down the person I like too.

      That means you’re a sadist.

        You don’t have to be a sadist to imagine hurting people. Everyone does it. It’s a good stress reliever.

        If (s)he was a sadist (s)he would have enjoyed the fantasy, not been disturbed, like (s)he clearly insinuated. The brain becomes so preoccupied with its fears that the unconscious plays them out. I’ve had dreams in which I murder someone, but what makes me not a future killer is that I was deeply bothered, not amused.

    I don’t understand what the moral is?

    Don’t buy baby dolls if you have a tendency to go insane? o.O
