Frightening Toy Friday - Almost as Scary as Clowns!
So this ones's interesting - because as I've gotten older (and older) I find ventriloquist dummies rather scary - there do seem to be a fair amount of movies and TV shows that picture them in a less than happy/jolly atmosphere. I mean take a look above - that makes me a little nervous!
And yet back in the early '60's I got a Jerry Mahoney dummy one year for Christmas (not the deluxe model - the $5.79 version) and I remember playing with it a lot and really enjoying it. So is Jerry a candidate for "Favourite Toy Friday" or "Frightening Toy Friday"? I guess it depends on whether I was 10 or whether I'm older and wiser ( or at least, more scared). But one thing I think most of us agree on - clowns are still scarier!
