Before Christmas a very good friend of mine emailed me and asked me if I’d be interested in reviewing a Dammit Doll. Intrigued by the name of said doll, of course I said yes – I mean c’mon, wouldn’t you?
Unfortunately our crappy mail carrier inadvertently delivered my package to the neighbor, who in turn didn’t discover the faux pas until after New Year – but better late than never, because this elicited giggles and laughter not only from me, but from the hubby and Princess Nagger, too – it’s so ugly it’s cute:
I love that it specifies it’s safe for Ages 3 & Up, but intended for Ages 18 & Up. The latter recommendation because of the verbiage sewn right on the front of the doll:
And you want to hit the wall and yell,
Here’s a little Dammit Doll
That you can’t do without.
Just grasp it firmly by the legs
And find a place to slam it.
And as you whack the stuffing out
Yell “Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!”
Isn’t that clever? Of course the hubby started brainstorming all these different scenarios on how the Dammit Doll could be effective, and he was going to recruit his mutual musician friend to create a funny (read: crazy) video of all the different scenarios the Dammit Doll would be perfect for.
But alas, I didn’t want to wait for them to coordinate their schedules to make this big video production (and besides, my hubby definitely thinks outside the box – I mean way way outside the box – so some of his ideas were ‘out there’. Don’t worry, I won’t deprive you of his twisted mind – the video will just come at a later time. Stay tuned.
Here’s the official info on the Dammit Doll:
The holiday season – with all its expected joy, endless expressions of good will and the pressure to party hearty — also has a well-documented propensity for sending stress levels soaring. Now there’s a fun, new, therapeutic solution: the Dammit Doll. With holiday stress ratcheting up emotions to eye-popping proportions, the Dammit Doll may well be the most economical investment one could make this year.
At only $14.99 each, Dammit Dolls are an ideal and affordable way to cope with holiday annoyances, turn exasperation into exhilaration, and at minimum help relieve seasonal stress in a manner not likely to end in a lawsuit, a jail cell or even a time-out. The charming 12-inch-tall Dammit Doll is simple in design, colorful, and so sturdily sewn that it stands up to an onslaught of slams on tables, desks, floors and walls.
The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t upcoming events that might warrant needing some sort of stress reliever. Forget about the stress balls – how about whacking a Dammit Doll instead?
