It's no wonder that toys coming to life can be both the subject of sweet, iconic, heartwarming tales for children and adults alike, as well as total nightmare fodder used in horror movies. Toys can very, very easily go from the lovable playthings of our childhood to demonically-possessed killing machines that stare at you while you sleep. And knock-off toys? Well, they have the uncanny ability to be hilarious, sad and terrifying all at once, adequately preparing children for an adulthood rife with online dating.

Take, for example, this Barbie®-adjacent doll discovered by a Redditor. She's got her eye kind of on you!

But, wait. There's more!

This is frightening on several levels. Does this mean the Titanic was a sentient being? Or was it controlled by nefarious (and possibly amicable and/or Herculean) forces? Was it murdered? Or did it commit suicide, sending its passengers to a watery grave in the process?

Was it drunk?

If you *really* loved your child, you'd never get him or her a janky, knock-off version of a popular and beloved TV character. You'd get a janky, knock-off version of TWO characters.
