Possessed Toys, You Know You Have Them

April 15, 2009

I have lamented before about my disdain for baby dolls that talk, cry, laugh and whine. Well what about all those other toys that make noise, light up, vibrate, move, walk and shake?

I don’t mind them so much when they have an on/off switch so that when we are not playing we can shut off their noises. The problem comes with the ones that have no switch and apparently have little brains of their own.

No I am not crazy, I have several witnesses who have had to endure noisy toys that seem to think for themselves. For example we have this baby doll.

She has been pretty popular in the news based on what she says. I am not here to argue whether or not she says “Islam is the light” as many people claim.  What I can tell you about this darn doll is she talks, giggles and coos whenever they heck she feels like it.

Typically it’s when the house is finally quiet. She’ll start making her happy noises and freaking me out.

Another possessed toy that we own is this Pooh Bear Ride-On Train.

My girls love it. They adore it. They play on it all the time. {okay, it lives at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, but when we are there it’s the first toy the girls go for!} Anyway this thing has a mind of its own. It makes several noises depending on which button is pushed. The problem is it doesn’t have an off switch and it has a tendency of blowing its train whistle at all hours of the night.

At home, we live near some train tracks so I am used to a train whistle in the distance at night. It doesn’t bother me. However when a train whistles goes off a few feet from my head in the middle of the night it tends to freak me out a bit.

It got so bad the other night that I couldn’t take it anymore and in a huff around midnight, I grabbed the train and bolted out the back door to put the thing in the garage. Now for those of you who know where my parents live, you know how dangerous a move that could have been. Fortunately, I was lucky and there were no skunks, possums or coyotes hanging out in the back yard. Although, who knows maybe the train whistle can be a deterrent for unwanted rodents at night.
