Weird dolls around the world

Weird dolls around the world

Craziest dolls ever

These crass and creepy playthings from the U.S. and abroad aren’t so bad that they’re illegal, but they’ve certainly raised their fair share of eyebrows and parental ire. See which dolls have caused toy-aisle trauma over the years.

Breast Milk Baby

In the words of this Spain-based toy company, "little girls need to learn to breastfeed." And for $89, the controversial Bebé Glotón can show them how

Diamond Barbie

A renowned jeweler created a one-of-a-kind Barbie that flaunts a necklace encrusted with white diamonds and a one-carat pink diamond.


The folks at Karten Designs crafted this as more of a concept than an actual toy. It can be tattooed, pierced and tanned.

Reborn dolls

The target audience for these baby dolls likes them to appear as lifelike as possible. One of these uncanny "living dolls" looked so real that it helped facilitate a headline-making scam.
Tokidoki Barbie

This 2011 Barbie raised eyebrows for its heavily tattooed arms, back and neck. The designer envisioned it more as a limited edition collectible for older customers, hence, the price tag.

Though this plush toy company specializes in making dolls that look like stuffed versions of E. Coli and Chicken Pox, they also carry a special line in their so-called "Red Light District."
Video Girl Barbie

Mattel's 2010 Barbie came with a working video camera hidden in her necklace and a playback screen in her back
