Every little girl has a doll growing up. Whether they were Barbies, Cabbage Patch Kids or other dolls of all different shapes, sizes and colors, we all had them.
But as kids we’re a curious, experimental bunch. We have all these ideas in our minds that we, ourselves, can’t really act out, so we use our big ol’ kid imaginations and use our Barbies as guinea pigs. I’m not just talking dress up, okay? Let’s be real with ourselves here: If you were to go and find your old dolls, how many of them are going to be naked? Answer: Just about all of them.
Here’s 10 weird things we did to our dolls as kids that you can definitely relate to.
Cut Their Heads OffDisturbing, but we all did it...right? Well, I think I might have by accident, but it's an easy fix and makes for some pretty cool art. Source: College Humor
Set Them On FireOkay, I wasn't allowed to play with fire but I know that some other kids definitely did this. It's like some sort of weird rite of passage or something. TIBU2.com
Cut Their HairI loved playing with my doll's hair. My favorite doll back in elementary school was this awesome doll that had a kente cloth vest and the most fun hair to play around with. I put her hair in rollers, used a ton of hairspray and made sure that she looked awesome 24/7. Then I lost her at an airport in Texas (I'm still upset). But sometimes I took some pretty extreme measures when it came to hair styles and I'm sure you did too. I definitely remember cutting off the hair of a Barbie that I got at McDonalds in a Happy Meal. I quickly regretted it. Source: Jezebel
Hung Out With Them In BathtubsI had a Pocahantas Barbie whose hair streaks appeared in water. This led to me pretty much having all of my dolls hang out in the tub. Source: The Be Rad Blog
Made Them Act Out Battle ScenesOur friend Joanna from Blisstree said that she would act out battle scenes between her barbies and her dinosaur action figures. That's a crossover that I'd love to see. Source: Shutterstock and Pumuckito via Pinterest
Made Them Make OutMaybe this is our early introduction to sexuality, but who didn't make their barbies kiss? I probably didn't know what sex was yet, so that was as raunchy as it got. Source: Dolladay
Took Their Clothes OffAdmit it. You were curious, okay? How many of your dolls are sitting in some box in your closet completely naked right now? Source: The Frisky
Checked Out Ken's PartsIt was always a disappointing affair. There was just...nothing there. Then again, it would be really disturbing if there was so I guess I shouldn't be all that disappointed. Yikes. Source: Tumblr
Created Entire Soap Operas With The Dolls As The StarsI'm pretty sure that my friends and I created a very torrid love affair between factions of dolls. I also remember a lot of drama about a super cool convertible. I'm sure it would make a pretty awful MTV reality show, and by awful I mean amazing. Polly Pocket wished her life was as exciting, I'm sure. Source: The Most Popular Girls In School Wiki
Trap Them In BoxesOur very own Gurl.com editor Caitlin is terrified of dolls. She didn't play with them. Instead, she locked them up in cardboard prisons and made sure they never escaped. She says that there is a trunk of dolls locked up in her house, to this day. Source: Shutterstock
