Phobia with dolls
March 28, 2007 2:41am CST
I know most of us here love dolls some of us may even have a bunch of doll collection. Me personally Im not really fun of dolls especially those mechanical dolls with a chubby body and big soft eyes. Im talking about those dolls that has music in it. Actually Im more afraid of its sound when turning the knob at the back of the doll. Those sounds freak me out especially at night. Maybe becasue of this one experience i had with those sounds. When i was 12 years old, me and my sisters decided to go at one of our relative's province. The place is really ire with lots of big tree around the house. We only have one night and one day to spend at their placen so after we had dinner we decided to go to sleep cause we will be visiting parks and malls for tomorow morning. Just when i though i can have a nice sleep from long hours of travel I found myself awaken covered with bedsheet and sweat. For how long, i dont know but i keep on hearing this sounds, sound of a mechanical dolls.. the sound of its turning knob. I wake up my sister and ask if shes hearing the sounds I've been hearing and she said no and tell me to go to sleep. I covered myself again and then i get this sudden goosebumps when I felt that someone is walking on top of my head. The sound of footstep and dolls knob keep playing the whole night and dawn that i dont get any sleep at all. Morning comes and I decided to ask some elders that live in the area and they said that the place was a former battle ground by the japanese. Its been eleven years since that happen but I can still remeber all those sounds which i think i associated with all the dolls i see and can get the same feeling i had. Do you any experience like this? Where do you think your phobia originate?

I have a phobia of dolls. When my daughters were younger thier grandmother was always giving them dolls for birthdays and such. One doll that was really expensive, was the kind that "grew" the more you played with it. It babbled and cooed and the more you took care of it, it would start to talk and crawl and then walk. I was terrified of this thing. It would just start up talking and moving and it really creeped me out. My fear was passed on to my kids and eventually they said they didn't want the doll anymore and we haven't had dolls in the house since then. My girls are now 11 and 8 and I have a son who is 18 months old. He now has a doll, just a plain doll, no talking or moving, not even the blinking eyes. It's the new rule in the house, plain dolls only!

You got more guts then me because i would have been right there in a room that had a adult in it waking them up I wouldn't been able to sleep either. I have a nephew who gets freaked out becvause of dolls and he can't stand the chucky dolls and his sister colloects dolls. I have a collection of some porclain dolls and I had to put them up when he came and stayed the night because I forgot once and he was hollering with his head covered up telling me to get the dolls out of the guest room.. He is 15 now but he was 12 when that happened. He still has the phobia and probably always will. His probably when he was little orginated when he watched a chucky movie.

I think that our childhood can definitely trigger phobias. That sounds down right creepy. I can't sleep with one of those old looking porcelion dolls in the same room. I watched way too many horror movies where the dolls came to life. I'm not talking Chucky here because I'm sorry Chucky just isn't that scary. I can still remember the scene in Poltergeist where the clown doll tries to kill the brother. I was too young to be watching those movies anyway. Some dolls are just plain creepy. I would have completely flipped out if what happened to you had happened to me.
