ha!  my dad and i pass back and forth this iridescent tissue ox cover in the shape of a cat we have pricelessly named Miss Kitty.  She's traveled across state lines in their rv, unbeknownst to him.  heh.  currently, i have her and will probably pass her along around christmas time.  Cheesy  she's been in the freezer, in the rv, in the window sill, under bed covers, in a car, and on the ceiling fan.  she really gets around!  anyway, i say maybe hide them strategically but make it kinda scavenger huntish.  each doll has a clue to the next doll's whereabouts?  ha!  have fun!

and ozz is one sexy tamarin!!  rawr.

what WOULD willie do?

I didn't read this whole forum, so excuse me if somebody has come up with this already, but I have two ideas:

1. You can attach all the dolls onto one big garland for the Christmas tree. Of course each doll is dressed as a (horrible kitschy) Christmas character like Santa, angels, rudolfs, nightmare before Christmas, etc.

2. Buy a really big doll and chop of the head. Somehow attach all 16 (or as many as you can) heads onto the big doll body to make a 16-headed monster.

Good luck with your project....

sorry if someone has already posted this, i then must have overlooked it.

I instantly thought of 16 ugly garden gnomes.

i think garden gnomes are really frightening and strange.

i'm not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but my mom said you should pose them all in pictures and have a calendar made for him, then he gets an ugly doll every month, and sometimes 2 a month! =)

that doll sounds like something my brother would do to me.

I know this will put an end to the gift-giving, but when you guys are near the end of your passing back and forth, you could chop off the heads and make Christmas ornaments for yourself and your brother. There are 16, so you could do 8 for each of you, to remind you of Christmasses past.

Good luck with the gifting idea. I like the K-Fed and hiding numbered babies ideas best.

You should give them glow in the dark eyes, then creep up on him in the middle of the night and place them all around his room.. in the corners,next to him in bed, in his closet.. and then play a recording of a baby crying, or something, to wake him up. You could make them look all freaky looking like Chucky!  Tongue Maybe I'm the only one that's creeped out by him..

One in the backseat of the car, with the rearview adjusted on him. That'd make me jump..  Tongue

I scared my friend with a doll once at night.. it was priceless  Grin

Chazz: The night is a very dark time for me.
Jimmy: It's dark for everyone, moron!
Chazz: Not for Alaskans or dudes with night-vision goggles!

I didn't get to read the entire thread, so this may be a repeated suggestion.  When I saw that pile of them I immediately thought of the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz.  Those things still scare me.

Uh, I don't have a gifting idea but why is everyone saying the dolls are ugly? I thought those dolls were adorable! Maybe that's just me, but those are some of the prettiest dolls I've seen. Wink

Dress them up in little devil costumes then at halloween have them all around his room... then he will be creeped out and have night mares about those poor dolls.
