“The Walking Dead” has spawned zombie parties, zombie walks and zombie Halloween costumes. The infatuation with zombies has also sparked a zombie baby doll craze.
According to the Augusta Chronicle on Oct. 4, the zombie walk that hobbled through the city’s downtown area last week, had zombies carrying these new demonic-looking zombie baby dolls.
Originally it was the Reborn Baby Dolls that made a hit with the doll-loving public. These dolls were handmade and were precise on every detail of a newborn baby. They were life-sized and looked real.
Their popularity waned a bit, but they were reborn once again in a zombie baby doll phenomenon, according to WTOP earlier this year. This was in part thanks to the infatuation with zombies from TV shows, like AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and the numerous movies that depict a zombie apocalypse. These zombie dolls are disturbing looking to say the least because of their life-like qualities.
Instead of having robin’s blue eyes and little mouths, many of these dolls now have horrifying white glazed over eyes and a mouth filled of needle like teeth. They are scary looking. They also make a great accessory for a “Walking Dead” costume this Halloween. You can be an adult zombie with a baby zombie in tow, as seen on Spirit Costume.
