In the world of toys, dolls are a no-brainer. There are dolls that sleep, cry, feed, crawl and even piss themselves, so a doll that giggles should have been an easy sell. So why does the ad for Baby Laugh-A-Lot seem like a portal to hell has opened in your web browser? Maybe it's the terrifying kids, who give the kind of shocked reaction that suggests they've just found John Wayne Gacy standing in the corner of their bedroom, wearing a blood-stained clown suit.
Then again, I'd be pretty fucking frightened too if I heard the blood curdling noise that emanates from this grinning demon. The sound of children's laughter is supposed to be intoxicating - this is like a tortured soul edging ever closer to insanity. By the time the kids start laughing along with the doll, and the voice-over is screaming with hysteria, you're convinced that their maniacal grins are the last thing you'll ever see.
