"Hey! Little girl – can I pet your dog?"

Seriously though. What the hell is up with these toys?

I don't have many strange "dolls" in my collection, but for obvious reasons I HAD to have these two. I mean, c'mon! A creepy, little red-headed stepchild along with some kind of crossbreed, humanoid elephant. What's not to like?

My question is, how can these have been produced with children in mind? Seems like the makings of a nightmare if you ask me.

These toys aren't related at all, as far as toy series, toy company or anything goes... but in some strange way, they seem to be made for each other.
When I picked these up last year, I had no clue what they were, but luckily with a bit of online research, I can now tell you what's up with these guys.

Troll Elephant

Let's start with the freaky-ass, humanoid elephant creature.

Troll Elephant

He has a gray, elephant's body, a human face, with real hair and an elephant's trunk. Strange.

Troll Animals

Well, as some might have guessed, this toy is actually a troll doll by Dam. They actually released a now-rare collection of troll animals in the 1960s.

If trolls weren't creepy enough, they have now been unnaturally paired with various animals to give us instant oddities. Some of them are actually kind of cute, but luckily for us, mine's freaky. (I think it may be a bootleg or something, because mine is so small compared to the original, larger-sized troll animals. It also has a marking "Made in Japan" on its belly.)

Brat Doll

And next we have the scary, little girl who looks like the Joker.

Happy Herman

She actually reminds me of the old Happy Herman doll I posted about a few years back – kind of an Alfred E. Neuman ripoff. She's a creepy, rubber doll with red, rooted hair, freckles, and a mysterious open mouth with sloppy lipstick applied.

Since I first got her, I always had the sense that she's made to squeak or blow a balloon or something. Turns out, I was right.

Brat Doll

Apparently, these dolls had a small balloon tongue which would inflate when you squeezed the doll's torso.

She's actually from an old series of dolls released in the 1960s simply called "Brat Doll." (I've actually gathered a few pics from old Etsy sales.)

The tag around her neck reads:

Brat Doll – Squeeze me and I stick out my tongue.

Brat Doll

Looks like there were variations of the Brat Doll – sometimes sold as a girl or a boy depending on the haircut and clothing. Good to see hobo children toys were all the rage in the 60s. Could this be original form of "Bratz?"

Troll Elephant and Brat Doll

Now wasn't that educational? As always, you've now discovered a toy you've never seen and will never want to see again ;)

I guess it's time to ride off into the sunset.

"Hi-yo Weirdo! Away!!"

    Man, trolls are freaky! Speaking of trolls, do you remember the battle trolls? Those were pretty awesome!!! I own quite a few of them, but my favorite is the cyborg troll.
