24 Daring Dolls That Target an Adult Audience

— January 30, 2009 — Naughty
Remember the days when Barbie was a princess and baby dolls were beautiful, yet boring? My friends, those days are long gone!

It seems creepy clowns just weren’t cutting it in the daring doll design stakes, and now we are abound with everything from $85,000 designer Barbie dolls, to badass gangsta dolls and freakishly realistic sex-dolls.

Dolls that were once designed to be cherished playthings for children have now been transformed into adults-only objects that would probably give kids nightmares.

The next time an adult tells you that they collect dolls, don’t be hasty in jumping to conclusions, as they may be hoarding morbid mutilated zombie dolls instead of classic Cabbage Patch Kids.
