scary dollDolls and toys for kids are meant to be joyful and sweet. They are meant to spark imagination and give children good dreams for their future. Sometimes, though, that all backfires.

Who hasn't seen a horror movie (or four) about a doll? Let's face it, some dolls are creepy as hell. Their broken faces seem to cry over better days, their glassy eyes tell of unspeakable horrors. It's almost too much to bear.

Maybe it's just because I have seen too many horror movies, but dolls, particularly old ones, scare me to death. Here are 8 of the scariest dolls I have ever seen. Warning: These dolls aren't for kids!
