The Gift of Giving Bad Hair Days

i just bought the most hideous toy for my small child that i was assigned through work. i mean, physically, this doll head with hair and makeup accessories for styling and beautifying is gorgeous. except for one small problem. only one of her eyes opens and closes from when she is laying down to when she is in head up position (she is, after all, only a disembodied head).

i tested out every single doll head in the store, and they all had the same problem. so much for bringing joy to the kiddies. more like a triple threat: terror, trauma and therapy. my father offered to spray her face for me but i have no idea what that means, and i suspect my father is not well-equipped in such areas as doll maintenance and care.

HAPPY CHRISMAHANUKWANZOLSTICE, boys and girls!

Ha! The entire concept is a bit skeery to me ...but that probably means the child you give it to will LOVE it. :-D

I had the pictured toy when I was a kid.. My mum was none too happy when I decided to "dye" her hair with food coloring and give her a trim....
