My first thoughts on this topic:
No matter what we think as adults,
any doll in the hands of a child usually suffers child love.
That could mean lots of wearin' out hugs and sweet sticky kisses,
or slight modifications such as a wild haircut and bows, magic marker faces, stolen clothes from another doll, a bit of chewing on the hands and legs, missing eyes, nose, ears, etc. you get the picture,
and then there are the drastic modifications such as heads and legs ripped off, fire cracker or cigarette lighter abuse.
reminds me of Toy Story.
but I wonder what will happen to some children when some radical parents find their Jesus Doll mangled or less favored than Teddy.
that really scares me.
