If I Ever Mysteriously Disappear, Talky Tina May Be Responsible
The Talky Tina doll shown above was featured in a Twilight Zone episode that I watched at the age of ten or eleven. I think she may have inspired my fascination with deranged, creepy, homicidal dolls. She may also be the reason I still sleep with a light on.
Soon, Talky Tina replicas will be for sale. Just pull the string, and listen to Tina's five loving phrases . . .
"My name is Talky Tina, and I love you very much."
"My name is Talky Tina, and I don't think I like you."
"My name is Talky Tina, and you'd better be nice to me."
"My name is Talky Tina, and you'll be sorry."
"My name is Talky Tina, and I'm going to kill you."
Unfortunately, Tina is only appropriate for kids 13+ (really?) and those willing to fork over a lot of cash on a sinister piece of plastic.
