Dimple Dot Kleenex Box Cover Kit

I never knew they had an official name.

Seeing this ad reminds me of when I was young, someone gave this to my folks as a gift -- :eek: -- and our dog used to bark at like she was rabid (the dog, not the Dimple Doll). My folks would put it away, and then every now and then bring it out to see if the dog still hated it; she did. Eventually, the dog got a hold of it and destroyed it.

Whenever I see them at sales, I want to buy them and set them all in a row on a shelf -- maybe even fill and entire book shelf with them, in all the colors and variations.

I did get one once, but sent it to my sister; one part memory, one part freak factor (she hates dolls so opening a box with a doll head, well, that would be super freaky). But no affordable ones since.

Feel free to send me some, if you don't want them.

For the cut n paste impaired, this is the link to view Boxanna.

Thanks, Daisy -- and if you can steal her, let me know and I'll get you my address...

We used to have one like this in our bathroom for years.

We had several of these in our office that we picked up over the years at antique shops. We keep them out of sight for several years and then when someone has a wedding shower, we wrap it up and surprise them. The creepy doll heads have also appeared at retirement receptions, baby showers, etc. I think we're only down to one now, unfortunately. I think that former employees have put them in their attics and forgotten about them and then moved on to other jobs.
