chucky dolls from the child's play movies
Chucky dolls are based on Charles Lee Ray, the
main human and doll character in the Child's Play movie series. The
voice of Chucky is done by Brad Dourif. In the original Child's Play
movie, the human Charles Lee Ray is shot and killed, but before he
dies, he holes up in a toy store, and transfers his soul, through
voodoo, into a “Good Guy” doll. The store sustains a lightning strike
and burns down, and the doll Chucky is picked up by a homeless man, and
sold to a woman who gives the doll to her child.
Many dolls are made for children, but the Chucky
doll is not one of them. He is based on that iconic character in the
“Child's Play” movies. Horror movie fans simply adore Chucky. Serious
collectors often add dolls to their collections avidly, especially as
new memorabilia is available after each movie release.
The Child's Play movies are not for the faint of
heart, and Chucky is not a lovable bad guy. The dolls recreate the
character that had audiences jumping out of their seats. The doll
carries on with the wicked ways of the man who was killed and who put
his own soul into Chucky.
The collectibles from the movie series are
available widely, and they run the gamut from static dolls to action
figures that have moving parts. The face of Chucky is quite often
covered with scars and stitches, and he often wields a knife or an axe.
The most common outfit to see him in is the bib trousers with a striped
jumper. Some of the scarier dolls have a head that turns around. Some
of the Chucky dolls also serve as banks. Chucky is a talker too, often
heard saying “I'm Chucky, Want to play?”
Chucky has a family at his side, even though he is
a ruthless killer. Tiffany is his true love, and we met her in the
movie “Bride of Chucky”. She usually wears a lovely white wedding gown
along with a biker jacket. She has a cool tattoo, as well. After the
movie Seed of Chucky, where he and his wife are granted a son, we met
Glen, who makes the family complete.
Since the Chucky doll's first film, he has
developed a cult following, right up there with Jason and Freddy
Kruger. Since Chucky is a doll, that somehow makes him even more evil
than a human murderer. Right now, there is a dark surge of interest in
Chucky dolls, and he is slated to be seen in comic books soon. Chucky
won't die, and neither will the popularity of Chucky dolls. Maybe his
“son” Glen will grow up to carry on Chucky's killing ways.
