My buddy was a large doll that was marketed for boys. It had a large head and plush body and was supose to be "a boy's best friend." Parents who were against violence usually bought this doll as a replacement for G.I. Joe.
My brother got one for christmas one year, that doll is just creepy. Like a dolled up version of chucky.
"A my buddy doll! I wanted a G.I. JOE!"
