Scaring the crap out of a small child is abusive. It may not be violent, but it is cruel and sadistic. The fact that it’s Halloween-related doesn’t make it O.K. Look at it this way: If you were shopping with your child, and some asshole purposefully terrorized your kid and made him/her cry, would you find it entertaining or objectionable?
Mihalinka, calm down. It’s halloween and it’s supposed to be a little spooky. Plus it’s just a really creepy doll and I doubt it will scar this child for life. Besides there are WORSE things the little guy can see on T.V. than this fun decoration.
