So how's this for an offensive product? This cracks me up to no end. Believe it or not, this is a Madame Alexander doll that replicates that warm and fuzzy scene from that feel-good movie, Psycho. The playful little doll is wearing a "Bates Motel" towel (because, I guess, going the extra step from "knife slashing" to "nudity" would be going too far...) and features a silhouette of everybody's pal Norman coming in to offer her a bar of soap -excuse me- a sharp knife plunged into her heart.

You can buy this wonderful item here. If you enjoy that, you might also want to check out the Madame Alexander "Birds" figure, available here. Good luck sleeping at night with these on the shelf!

Madame Alexander dolls know how to push the envelope. They're apparently trying to start at the far end of the spectrum and eventually meet up with Barbie at some place in the middle.

Oh, Barbie has travelled further down that road than you might think...have you seen "Harley Davidson Barbie"? photo1 photo2
