Misfit Toygirl

Not all the toys on the island of misfit toys were good, if morose, members of the child entertainment industry. Some carry grudges. It wasn't Baby Molly's fault that instead of saying "Mama" she would say the most horrid things when her string was pulled. It was a prank by some nameless factory drone, and Baby Molly suffered for it. But she decided she wouldn't suffer alone. Sometimes at night, certain workers of the Jollytime Doll Collective would wake up in the middle of the night, seeing a tiny shadow in the dark. They wouldn't see much more, and afterwards they never had much to say.
