Stocking Stuffer
For the Oddball

Christmas is coming!  Christmas is coming!  And therefore …

Stockings are coming!  Stockings are coming!

Stockings are my favourite part of Christmas.  Nothing is better than a perfectly appointed stocking.

So from now until Christmas I’m going to be giving you a few “interesting” ideas for stocking stuffers.  Stuff you may not have thought about stuffing into a stocking.

In this case, it’s something I got from a friend who used to own a store that carried all manner of weird stuff.   I didn’t get it in a stocking, but it would make a GREAT stocking stuffer for the oddball in your family.  I, by the way, am the oddball in my family. This is kind of proof of that.

May I introduce you to “Sadie”.


Sadie as you may have noticed is missing an eyeball.  And is in fact pouring blood from her missing eyeball socket.  Plus she’s prone to sticking out her tongue.



The good news is she’ll only stick her tongue out at you if you happen to poke her in the eye.



Sadie, you see, is a pencil sharpener.  When you press a button on the back of her head she spits out the pencil shavings.



Nothing says Happy Holidays like a vomiting pencil sharpener.



Think this is too weird?  Too vile?  Too much?  It isn’t.  Each and every one of you knows someone who would love this.

It’s part of the Living Dead Dolls series.  No I’m not being paid by them to promote their slightly disturbing dolls.  I just like them and think they’re fun.  Of course, as a child I used to rip the heads off my dolls and throw them under the bed.

If you’re interested you can Google “Living Dead Dolls pencil sharpener”.  But when I did that, they came up as sold out everywhere.  See?  The world is full of weirdo, oddballs.  No need to feel ashamed.

The main manufacturer is Mezco Toyz.  Look around the site to see if something else catches your eye.  May I recommend the Living Dead Dolls Pencil Toppers, also an excellent stocking stuffer.   They don’t have any dripping blood though.  :(

Fa la la la la, la la, la laaaaaaa.

    Your wrapping is really good. I too love to wrap but mine is not as creative. Have you ever considered wrapping professionally at Christmas?

    Where did you buy that stunning ribbon?

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Geraldine. I’m a bit too busy now with the blog to add any other jobs to my list, but I *did* wrap presents for cash when I was in University. :) ~ karen!

  2. Nicole says:

    well, I’d missed this post. but thanks to your super nifty widget (seriously, that’s nifty,) it’s now burned into my brain. and I shall have nightmares. and then try to buy it for someone as soon as I get up tomorrow.

    • Karen says:

      Nicole – Thanks for the widget compliment. I’d debated about putting it on for fear of looking too messy. But I think I like it for the exact reason you mentioned. Shows you posts you may have missed. Lovely thinks like pencil sharpening eyeballs. ~ k

    Hahaha! I have a glass eye — and it just so happens it’s the right eye!!! People are always giving me one-eyed things. Hmm. I wonder if it’s possible to make requests…

    • Karen says:

      Sheila! I had to take a quick look at this post to see what you were talking about. (I couldn’t remember which stocking stuffer was in the “Oddball” post. Then of course I laughed my head off! ~ karen!

  4. karen n says:

    brilliant! is it just me or did we all fantasize about doing this to one of our dolls? and having blood squirt out her eye and have her puke shavings is the bonus!ha ha! all my little girl fantasies!!

  5. Jeff says:

    I cannot believe I misspelled “college” in my response this morning. I realized it just seconds after sending it and it has been eating at me ever since. OMG, I think my OCD is in high gear today and enhanced by 12 cups of fully leaded coffee. Maybe there is a prescription strength “chill pill” I could take but until I can get my hands on them, re-posting and acknowledging my error is going to have to suffice. OCD…it’s not just for breakfast anymore.

    BTW – I have checked out Mezco Toyz. Ho! ho! ho! vs hack, horror and heebee-geebies. Love it. The Goonies figurines are a must!

    So creep and so great!

  7. OH! I want this!
    I once wrote a little musical ditty called “Dance and Kill Barbie” named after a doll a friend had “accessorized” with combat boots and automatic doll weapons. OK, NOT for kids, but very funny. If you want you can hear it at:

    not promoting – just amusing.

    Hello! I have only been reading your blog for a little while now, but it is for posts like this!
    This post both fills me with sheer delight and sadness. Delight because I have a friend who would be utterly terrified to receive this, sad, because I have spent all morning looking for this gift to torture this dear friend of mine…but alas…Sadie is sold out everywhere I have looked!
    Thank you so much for bringing us all these random little joys!

  9. Jules says:

    oh Im not going to try and get one of these for my 6 year old? too scary you think? NAHHH..its good for I cannot stand watching him do his homework with a dull pencil..LOVE IT!

  10. mimi says:

    I’d love to bring her into the school where I teach! those kids would be sharpening pencils and making her puke ALL day!

  11. Natalie says:

    Uh…creepy! :(

  12. Liz S. says:

    I know too many people that would enjoy receiving gifts like this. My neice loves Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride.

  13. Oona says:

    This is the greatest pencil sharpener in the history of the world! I actually have two dolls from the first line of living dead dolls, they are super fun. Unfortunately, since I’m a grown-up now (boo!), they’ve been packed away in the attic. I thought about getting them out for Halloween, but I can’t bring myself to take them out of the packaging they’ve been in for 10 years.

  14. Debbie Doodles says:

    Thanks for the tip! It would be a totally great gift for my four brothers who used to delight in ripping the heads off my dolls and melting or otherwise mangling them. Ahhhh Christmas memories.

  15. Jeff says:

    I need this. I would then also need a gross of pencils to sharpen. I think my daughter at collage would also like one so she can put it on display for her roommate to see. So disturbing. I love it.

  16. Alexandra Dare says:


    …I’m scared.

    If I pulled that out of my stocking, I think I’d pee myself. I wish I knew someone who would like this! I think all my friends would think it was a death threat, LOL.

  17. Stephanie says:

    Love it. Now if I only had stockings to put some of these in…

  18. Alisha says:

    I want one for myself. Is it wrong to put one in my own stocking?

  19. Janelle says:

    Once I had a little pitcher in the shape of a cow who vomited the cream out of its mouth…but it was nothing like the sheer disturbing genius of Sadie. I just realized one of the reasons why your posts are so hilarious…it’s not just funny writing, and funny pictures….it’s that you seem to have a knack for knowing when to say it with words, and when to just present yet another picture of Sadie the puking pencil sharpener, but with her hair styled a little differently than in the previous picture. Did we really need that last picture of puking Sadie? The one with the windblown look? YES! We DID! Brilliant!!

    • Karen says:

      Janelle – I am QUITE impressed you noticed I re-styled Sadie’s hair for the last photo! LOL. Yup. Yes, I did. Thanks! :) ~ karen

  20. omg so freaky. I know a lot of people who would like this!

  21. Wow… Just wow… Too much? No! Awesome? Yes!
