As you've no doubt discovered in our previous urban exploration features, the only thing creepier than an abandoned building is one filled with the glassy stares of long-forgotten dolls and other children's toys. Maybe it's the shattered images of innocence lost, or maybe just the accusing way those orphaned toys seem to stare back at you. Either way, you just know an excursion into any abandoned toy shop has guaranteed nightmare potential.

Opacity forum moderator Tony C faced those nightmares on a recent visit to the long-defunct Toy Loft, where he documented his findings in hundreds of ultra-spooky photos, apparently at high risk to himself (he reports taking a nasty fall while exploring the upper floors).

Tony survived the incident and posted his favorite shots to the forum, which not only includes all the scary dolls you'd ever want to encounter, but also a fascinating historical look at the once-hopping facility which boasted a well-stocked game arcade, mini-golf course and laser-tag arena back in the day.
