    Forget Sunshine Family. Nothing compares to the horror of Kenner Dusty.

    Sure we mock the Sunshine family a lot here but they do not compare to Dusty.



    They actually advertised her as America's most beautiful doll. She Wasn't. I dare you to go down the google image rabbit hole of Kenner Dusty pics. The commercial does not truly do the doll justice. The doll was scary new and has only become more so with age. The horror! The madness!

    Imagine this nightmare. You are a little kid in a toy store and you have to pick out one doll and nothing is left but Sunshine Family and Dusty. I don't know about you but I'm going right for the Sunshine Family.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    HA HA Tan Mom is Dusty all grown up! Today, Dusty would be marketed with a tube of sunscreen to teach the children the importance of sun protection and dangers of the sun's rays. And yes, I've seen second-hand, used Dusty dolls on ebay and they are crazy scary!
    Here's another scary doll: Mego's very own Suzanne Sommers!

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.

    Yeah, that is one messed up doll. She was supposed to be a teenager but always looked like a middle aged bleached blonde chain smoker.
