Island of the Dolls

18 Apr


Miss Cakehead has come over a bit National Geographic with this post (normal service will resume shortly) – it is just so mental & macabre I could not resist posting it.

Mexico’s Island of the Dolls is one of the World’s strangest tourist destinations. Many years ago a doll was first placed on the island to appease the spirit of a young girl who had drowned there. It was from this starting point that today we find the island is literally covered with 1000’s of dolls, each doll showing varying levels of decay. Seriously eerie…

    This pics are cool, i know there set up but seriously like behind my house, I was walking one day and found two old baby dolls ripped apart and spread over barbedwire and other old metal toys. I took a few pics two years ago and they look very similar to these. Funny.

    Outstanding doll collection! Creepy ,but done in
    to appease the spirit of a young girl who had drowned there. Sad yet sweet too.
    I would love to see it.

    This is totally creepy. I think I would freak out if I visited this place. When I was in Hilo, Hawaii there was a strange shop along the waterfront. They had souvineer stuff but they had also dolls heads sort of like on the island (old & decrepid) in glass jars. I think they also had old operating tools? I can’t remember. IT’s been so long since I’ve been there. I don’t know if the doll heads in jars were for sale. I should have bought one even though it would freak me out to have something like that in my house.

    I watched an episode last night about this island, and one of the dolls opened their eyes when the host was looking at it. CREEPY!!

  11. jessica September 17, 2009 at 5:56 pm #

    yea, i saw that syfy show about it last nite too! so creepy! dolls really creep me out, i would never go near that island, two people have drowned there already because of those dolls, im not risking it. i mean dnt get me wrong i love the thrill of being scared, but thats just too intense for me!!!!lol

  12. Punkie September 17, 2009 at 7:48 pm #

    I am so fascinated with this! Oh my word! I too, saw this yesterday night, on the SyFy channel! (: It was so amazing that I just had to stay up late to watch it! 😀 I want one of those dolls! haha ^-^

    I didn’t think I’d be able to sleep after watching it on Syfy. You couldn’t pay me to be on that island after dark. Creepy is an understatement! Destination Truth is pretty cool.

    I think Jay & Grant from Ghost Hunters should go investegate this island, that would be so cool. It would make a great halloween special, like the ones they have done the last 3 years or so.

    i would love to go there, but ONLY in the daytime. never at night. that is soooo creepy!!!!

  16. Porche September 21, 2009 at 1:56 pm #

    Oh yeah creepy as hell, they weren’t just placed there for the appeasement of the dead girl, the caretaker started putting them up to scare trespassers

    Watched it on syfy twice, you can also watch it on

  17. Christina September 22, 2009 at 11:06 pm #

    Does anyone know anything about the little girl who died there?

  18. Karitow October 15, 2009 at 2:00 am #

    Yeah, it’s creepy!! This island is in Xochimilco, in Mexico City and you can visit it only if you are in a “trajinera” (kind of boat) tour.

  19. What the Fuck?! November 4, 2009 at 10:25 pm #

  20. Denise November 11, 2009 at 9:51 pm #

    Yup … Scary as all heck!

    Those dolls do remind me of Chucky and nothing like the our generation dolls I love so much!

    I hate mannequins. These pictures are coming VERY close to me making that hatred and fear spread to dolls o.o;

    I live in Mexico, The Doll’s Island is in Xochimilco, you get there when taking a boat trip in the “trajineras”. It’s not shopped you should visit that place if you’re interested in those sort of creepy places. It’s a very small island.
