Synopsis for "All Dolled Up"
A father buys his little girl a doll that resembles her cruel stepmother. After the father accidentally steps on the doll and the woman's head momentarily feels like it's being crushed, she puts it down to coincidence. When she feels as though she is drowning, and sees the little girl get out of the bathtub with the wet doll, the woman feels uncertain. When the little girl spills hot tea on the doll's face and she suffers a burn, she tells the husband to get rid of it. The husband thinks she is being absurd but agrees to get rid of the doll and the little girl overhears. Since the little girl wants her stepmother to like her, and she has to get rid of the doll anyway, she dismembers the doll to help her win first prize in a child's art exhibit. When the husband comes home and looks into their bedroom, he chokes.
