Squid Game doll appears in Birmingham and Manchester

If you travelled in or out of Birmingham or Manchester this weekend, you may have been in for a fright as the creepy doll from Netflix’s Squid Game arrived in the cities.

The three-metre-tall doll from the hit Korean series was on display at Birmingham New Street Station and Manchester’s Trafford Centre on Saturday.

The doll, accompanied by the iconic masked guards in dark pink suits, attracted large groups of onlookers and fans of the show to both locations.

Fans waited in long queues to take pictures with the doll, which was complete with 360-degree rotating head, light-up eyes and an eerie singing voice.

Fans were also given the chance to try to carve the dalgona cookies featured in the show, without the threat of a brutal death, of course.

People took to Twitter to express their excitement, shock and fear of the creepy doll.

The doll was also seen in London’s Westfield shopping centre in Shepherd’s Bush on Halloween.

Squid Game is Netflix’s most popular show, amassing 111 million views in its first few weeks of release.

The thriller follows gambling addict Seong Gi-hun, played by Lee Jung-jae, as he and 455 other debt-ridden players compete in the lethal squid games in hopes of winning a 45.6 billion Won (£28.2 million) cash prize.
