Pediophobia

A child's porcelain doll went missing one night, as did a pair of kitchen shears and the town magistrate.

The previous owners of this doll would probably have some spine-chilling stories to tell.  You know, if they hadn’t disappeared without a trace.

Pediophobia...

It is an anxiety disorder that can be associated with a range of dolls from old-fashioned china dolls and porcelain dolls to dolls that talk and move. Pediophobia is considered a branch of automatonophobia, or a fear of humanoid figures. 
 
The psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud claimed that children fantasize about dolls coming to life. Psychologist Ernst Jentsch theorized that uncomfortable or uncanny feelings arise when there is an intellectual uncertainty about whether an object is alive or not and also when an object that one knows to be inanimate resembles a living being enough to generate confusion about its nature.
