Poppy Playtime - MOMMY LONG LEGS!

Poppy Playtime - 5" Figures Series 1 - Mommy Long Legs - Phat Mojo 2023

I legitimately think the most terrifying living toy in the Poppy Playtime game is Mommy Long Legs. This action figure seems so innocuous and sweet, but the few gameplay videos I've watched have changed my view of her completely. When you first meet her, Mommy Long Legs seems childlike and maternal. But throughout the game she becomes more unhinged; delivering the same mommyisms ("Play nice, now") in a more sinister tone and running in a spider-like fashion with her stretchy arms and legs. She has a "furious mode" where her skin becomes mottled and withered and her mouth forms an angry frown. But I personally find her "deranged mode" more scary. In this mode, she looks essentially the same as her happy appearance but her eyes are fully dilated and she acts and moves erratically. That juxtaposition of innocent appearance and unpredictable demeanor gives me chills. She's essentially a demonic Betty Spaghetty. Let's check out Mommy Long Legs below!

Multi-hued pink (and purple) toys are very hard for me to photograph for some reason. The photos end up looking either bright neon or tinged with yellow. In reality, this Mommy Long Legs' coloring is somewhere in-between.

Despite her "bendy" appearance, Mommy Long Legs has solid plastic limbs and is only articulated at the traditional joints.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the two 5" ladies from Series 1: Mommy Long Legs and Kissy Missy.
