The doll, dubbed 'Creepy Chloe' has been taking adventures with the little girl, all documented on Instagram under @creepychloeandbriar.
Children always have a perspective on life that boggles us. For this Florida mom, it couldn't be more true. Brittany Beard took her daughter, Briar, to the Spirit Halloween store where she begged her mom to get the "creepiest baby doll you’ve ever set eyes on." What happened next was literally one of the cutest things that no one could say no to. "She said, “But I’m it’s mommy and it needs me!” Briar named the doll, Chloe and I then immediately nicknamed her Creepy Chloe," she said, joking, "I’m pretty sure Creepy Chloe is stealing my soul when I sleep."
Recounting an anecdote of the day, she posted a few pictures to show their adventures. The pictures along with the captions were posted on August 26th, it now has around 16,000 likes and has gone viral. "Yesterday we went to Magic Kingdom and Briar insisted on dressing Creepy Chloe in a princess dress and bringing her along. Because creepy babies need Disney magic too I guess? So I dug out Briar’s Haunted Mansion cast member dress to carry through with the theme," she starts. "While eating breakfast at the Grand Floridian cafe, they brought out the cast member pastry chef to meet Briar and Creepy Chloe because apparently she loves all things spooky. She said she adored that Briar loved the doll and at the end of the meal, she suprised Briar with an amazing spooky cupcake and a mini handmade chocolate Haunted Mansion poster. It was actually really sweet!"
While Briar's sister, Belle, 8, may have been playing with American Girl Dolls but Briar's affections for Creepy Chloe have given her some serious perks. "Then we walked over to Magic Kingdom where Briar had a photoshoot with Creepy Chloe. The photographer was eating it up and kept coming up with posing ideas for Chloe. I’m sure it was quite an unexpected change from her usual never-ending line of glittery Bippity Boppity Boutique princesses!" she explained. Adding another experience, "Then we of course ventured over to the Haunted Mansion. There was a 50-minute wait to get on the ride but when they saw Briar, they immediately whisked her away into the secret “Servants Quarters” where we got to see the keys to all rooms and the bells that ring to call the servants up. Then they popped us right out into the stretching room. The cast members were waiting for us when the doors opened to present us with official Haunted Mansion Caretaker certificates and to walk us right onto the ride. It was so magical!"
She realizes that the doll is not as a terrible assortment as we would normally think. "So all in all, I guess the moral of the story is when your 3-year-old throws a fit over absolutely needing a super creepy Halloween doll… buy the doll. Creepy Chloe might be stealing my soul while I sleep, but we are making the best of our time left over here! 🤣" She adds the kinds of looks she gets from people around her when the doll joins in on some trips, she tells TODAY. "I’m always having to explain myself because we’re walking through the parks or swimming and people are just giving me the weirdest looks because there’s Briar just walking next to me holding this super creepy doll that’s dressed up,” Beard said. “I just feel like I always have to explain it like, ‘Oh, she fell in love with this doll at Spirit Halloween and I’m just letting her be her.'"
But others love Briar's personality and her bond with the doll. Beard's husband seems more on board than her about this, "I talked to him this morning and he was like, 'You know, maybe it is a good lesson that you love everything no matter what it looks like.'" But Brittany hints that if the doll goes missing, there is no unknown culprit.
