Creepy Two Headed Dolls For The New Kids


Times are achanging and new generations need different toys, like these two headed dolls, a sort of monster that takes from Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Betty Boop, Manga Films and Japanese terror movies like the Ring. The shop, a wonderful place to buy curious modern stuff like this is on Ali Bei street near Passeig de Sant Joan, if I am not in a mistake. It was closed at the moment I took the picture so I had to stick my lens through the bars of the rolling metallic doors. Carrer Ali Bei is becoming a zone of comic and freak stores. In fact I believe there is a shop called Freaks at Ali Bei 10 that may be the place to find the dolls. Please any fan or freak correct me if I am wrong.


  1. Surely no child would be interested in this kind of "doll"!! It must serve as a conversation piece for adults??

    Very unusual. Sort of a cross between Betty Boop and Tim Burton.

  3. You are right Kate. They are meant for adults but I suppose kids will be attracted soon the way things are going.
    Thanks Rock for the remark.

  4. Two heads are better than one?

    ooo if you like the dolls, check out the work of Camile Rose Garcia. That's probably hers.

  6. -thanks Leighton.
    -As to the anonymous comments. I have to thank your help. I visited the site and it is almost identical. I still say they have a Betty Boop kind of look with a sort of macabre touch. But now upon looking at her artwork, I see more subtles influences, smarter than my humble suggestions. I am going to investigate. Thanks so much my friend. Here is her site:


    their plush and expensive but same theme

  8. I just called my favorite comic book shop, Meltdown (Los Angeles) - where I saw this doll a few weeks ago - and I was informed that the doll is Sadie and Katie, one of Camille Rose Garcia's many cool dolls. Her site doesn't have them on it, but a search will tell you plenty. Adios amgigas y amigos!
