8 Awesome Doll memes

Doll people–and fashion doll people in particular–are among the most sardonic and self-deprecating people I know. We know what most people think of our passion for all things doll, and most of us generally don’t give a shit–preferring instead to ironically assume the stereotypes that accompany the general view of us as neurotic hoarders slightly out of touch with reality. Kind of like the sci-fi nerds who dress like Chewbacca and Princess Leia as they revel in their geekdom at Comic Con. If you’ve ever attended a doll convention, you already know that our own costume-clad events are just as dorky as anything you’ll see in San Diego this week.

It is in that spirit of self-deprecating humor that many in our community have, over the years, created memes that play on our inside jokes about who we are and what we do. There was a particularly amusing image that made the rounds on FB and the doll boards last week of a truck carrying what is surely the most obscenely large Amazon box ever created. (Spoiler alert: The box contained a Nissan and was a publicity stunt for car sales on Amazon. Sorry–no dolls.)

AmazonThis meme sent me searching for others created by our community, and a friend of mine sent me several that she has been collecting. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to share them on my blog.

So enjoy this heavy dose of dolly humor, and remember that you are in the company of some very funny, very clever, very talented people. (And if you have any of your own, please share with the rest of us!)

  1. Hey! Good ones. I love the Amazon truck one. Not easy to keep a new doll arrival quiet when a big box arrives at the door… I am a doll collector AND a meme collector. Just moving my Meme Dreams site over to Jimdo where my Hiya Dolly site is already. But not joke memes so much. I’ll have to collect a few more of those! Thanks for the inspiration! And I appreciate your comments on doll collectors- sardonic and self deprecating”, the humor…
    I signed up today, although I have been here before!

  2. I don’t know if this exactly fits the doll meme theme. But I laughed and laughed when I saw this on Pinterest so I’ll give you the link and let you decide. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/51439620713549069/
    You do have to have a sense of humor about our hobby it’s true. When I first started buying dolls years ago I was really embarrassed about it. However, I was one of those Sci-Fi fans who dressed up and went to the San Diego Comic Con when I was younger. So, I guess I went from one hobby that’s thought strange to another. I met a lot of very nice people in my first hobby, and the online doll collecting community seems very nice also. Being normal is over overrated.

  3. I have the amazon truck one on my facebook page and the guy begging for the payment. How many times have I pleaded with a buyer on ebay to please send in the payment so I can pay for a doll! LOL…That last one really hits home. Most people don’t get the hoarding,er collecting we do…some of these are so much fun.

  4. Hahaha! Thanks for posting these memes, they are very funny! My imagination ran wild by seeing that gigantic Amazon box ;-D! I agree that in the doll world, people are very creative and have a healthy dose of self-irony, that’s part of the fun for me!
