Fear of dolls (Pediophobia)
Yes, dolls can resemble dead children. Creepy! Some dolls are so spooky, they look like they're possessed by ghosts or demons! Creepy redux! If you are genuinely afraid of dolls, allow me to attempt to indulge your mental problems. Okay. Here it goes: you should only be afraid of dolls if they are human-sized. Because then, if a dark god takes control of the doll and it suddenly snaps to life, then you have to fight an animated inanimate object that is your size. This could be trouble. But dolls are tiny. You can just kick them. I mean, let's say a small army of dolls started marching towards you. All you'd really need to defend yourself is a shovel. Is this helping? How about this: dolls are plastic toys for children.
