Woman's Troll-Doll Obsession.
Remember those troll dolls from the 1960s?.....Michelle Kerrins doesn't have to strain hard to conjure up the memories. All she has to do is walk into the spare room she calls her "troll sanctuary," which houses her monster collection of spike-haired plastic dolls.
The 38-year-old L.A. gymnastics instructor began collecting troll dolls at age 10 and has now amassed more than 3,000 of various types and sizes, spending four days a week thrift-shopping for more.
Her 14-year-old daughter helps with the collection, but alas, her husband, Dean, is less enthusiastic. He considers it a turn-off when Kerrins puts on a troll-doll mask and bikini and tries to flirt with him.
No accounting for taste, I guess.
