Old Story About Frightening Doll Disappointingly Picture-Free

BoingBoing just unearthed this nugget of excellence in journalism from 1996:

GRIFFITH, Ind., Dec. 27 — A battery-operated Cabbage Patch doll that can chew had to be taken apart piece by piece this week when it munched a 7-year-old girl’s hair up to her scalp and would not let go.

The girl, Sarah Stevens, was in a hair salon with her aunt on Thursday when the doll began chewing her hair. It took Sarah’s aunt and the salon owner 30 minutes to remove 20 screws, open the battery compartment and pull apart the mouth.
