Everyone is afraid of something. The more common phobias are claustrophobia (the fear of confined spaces), arachnophobia (the fear of spiders) and acrophobia (the fear of heights). There are some really strange phobias out there that are so rare they’re never talked about. Here are 9 bizarre phobias you won’t believe exist – but they do!

1. Pediophobia


Pediophobia is the fear of dolls. While most people will admit that some dolls are definitely creepy, some people are afraid of any doll no matter how normal or weird it looks. These people have pediophobia and are even afraid of mannequins and robots. Luckily there aren’t enough robots to be a problem. Who knows about the future though?
