Very sinister with a rich and chilling payoff. The Tea-Serving Doll by Mae Empson The second story in the collection to channel fairytale wonder over real horror, this is still very beautiful. Beguilingly combines the plight of Japanese immigrants, family betrayal, slavery and mysterious heirlooms.
This was a rather charming and well mannered finish to a seriously impressive anthology. Mar 27, Jason Brawn rated it it was amazing. Very, very creepy and funny.

Jan 24, Eric Townsend rated it it was amazing. Singing purple raisins, teddy bears that come alive and robotic dogs that once could flip are just a few of the wonderful, yet quite creepy characters you will discover in the short stories of Attic Toys.

Shipp writes, Attic Toys takes different objects, in this case obviously toys of some sort, and twists them into something that we might fear.

It does something else quite interesting as well, Attic Toys takes mundane objects around the house, not just the toys themselves, and forces the reader to imagine them as if they were alive. I would recommend this for any horror lover that, pardon the similarities to The Adams Family, are creepy, spooky and a little bit cooky. You will be forced to reexamine things you took for granted, things you might even have cherished in your childhood and see just how frightening they can become when they set their minds to it.

I loved Attic Toys and I think you will too. Feb 07, Ricardo Moedano rated it it was ok Shelves: rubbish. I hesitated to vent my thoughts on this collection because I couldn't bring myself to burst these guys' bubble by pointing out what bothered me about their work.
It was not their style, no. That's great, as is the atmosphere too.

Yet, all the stories save for Living Doll perhaps, which, however, due to its moral tone doesn't fit among the rest in my opinion ; all the stories, I'm afraid, feel more like an exercise than a tale proper, a plain account that, although rich in detail, is barren of a concrete point. Sorry mates, but my guess is that, if provided with some smart plot, you shall emerge from the shadows.
Mar 25, Julie Baker rated it liked it. Some of the stories were pretty good. Couple of them were extraordinarily creepy. Then there were some that were lame or just didn't feel finished when they were over. All in all not a waste of time and that's about all you can ask for. Jun 30, Steven rated it really liked it Shelves: anthologies. Creepy Fun!! This collection of short creep stories was a blast to read. All the stories were fun but that one just stood out to me. My hopes are that maybe this title could have a part 2 to it :O.

I'm a huge fan of horror, and I love a good scare. Since I have major issues with dolls I expected to be terrified by this series of short stories. I was not. While some of them were interesting, several of them bored me. I wanted to set the book aside multiple times during the read- all that kept me reading was knowing there were other short stories from other authors in there, and I didn't want to miss out on a great one.
The only one I fell in love with was All of the tales were well-written. Several, like Rubik's Cube and Googly just made me roll my eyes- they were a complete miss for me.
As I said, this series just did nothing for me, but all were well-written, properly formatted, and there were no glaring typos. An entertaining way to pass the afternoon, but I won't be rereading this one. Dec 23, Roxanne Bland rated it it was amazing. This collection of macabre short stories featuring the toys we knew and loved as children is a winner. I'll never look at teddy bears the same way again.
