If you are a regular reader of this blog, you have seen these posts in the past. Then I ran out of material due to a lot of people just giving up on Ebay. Recently a friend pointed me in the direction of a hilarious Facebook group called “Weird Secondhand Finds That Just Need To Be Shared”. Let me just tell you, I’ve seen some weird stuff in my travels, but some of what has been posted on there takes the cake! I ended up sharing the site with several friends and family who found it just as amusing as I did. I finally had to start limiting my time spent on there because it not only is a difficult place to read posts at because it is massively busy, but I found myself laughing so hard at times, I’d have trouble breathing. In the process, I came across some really funny doll related posts–and as you know, I just couldn’t resist sharing them!
Presenting a new installment of When Bad Things Happen To Good Dolls!!!! (Insert trumpet fanfare…here!)
So, this first one was on Ebay. It’s not horrible, but there is one question that I can’t help but ask…
Why is she only wearing one shoe???? (and where is Kit, what have you done with her?!?!?!)
The next one is not my kind of thing, but I can see where someone would think it was pretty cool. You’d have to be a really BIG fan to do this to two AG dolls I guess. (I’m assuming this is Harley Quinn and the Joker? Correct me if I’m wrong.)
Okay folks…we are just getting warmed up here. We have two American Girl dolls for sale…is this a nude rave??? At least they look enthusiastic. Especially since it looks like they lost the hairbrush. “Hands In The Air Like We Just Don’t Care!!!” (This was an Ebay listing)
This one…a perfect example of automated manufacturing gone horribly amok…
Ooops. Quality control fail.
Okay folks…here’s probably one of the strangest things I’ve seen…well…almost the strangest. Wait till you get to the last post. That’s the strangest.
Okay…we’re to the end, so this is where I warn you to be sure you are sitting, any beverage you are drinking is set down and what you might have sipped is swallowed…
Okay, you can scream now! Oh wait, Barbie on the left looks like she is doing it for you!!!!! This. Is. Just. Scary. First off, who would do this to a Barbie doll, I mean, pulling her head off isn’t all that difficult, but cutting the poor girl’s hands off to make jewelry is just atrocious. But then my other question is–who would actually wear this??
I wish I could say no dolls were harmed in the creation of these items, but we know otherwise.
Hope you enjoyed this installment! Not sure when I’ll have another, it took me a while to accumulate enough photos for this post, but I’m always on the lookout.
