To dream of a doll represents a person or situation in your life that innocently molds or complies to your wishes. Using your innocence to get others to do things for you. It may also reflect waking life situations where you are talking to someone that never disagrees with you.
Alternatively, a doll may reflect your own tendency to be perfect for someone else. Feelings about yourself being well behaved and perfectly compliant. Acting like a “perfect little girl.”
Negatively, a doll may reflect your expectations of other people doing what you want because you are innocent or young. Feelings about other people naively or passively doing exactly what you want them to. Children may dream of dolls to reflect their expectations of the parents doing things for them because they are so little. Arrogantly assuming that someone else is too stupid or little to think for themselves. Talking to others like you are too innocent to have to confront anything difficult.
To dream that a doll comes to life may represents feelings of surprise that someone passive or easy to control is thinking for themselves.
To dream of a doll turning into a dinosaur or monster may reflect your feelings about passive or complaint people turning on you. Gentle or innocent people beginning to assert themselves or stick up for themselves. Conflict with people who don’t like to be patronized or spoken to like they are stupid. Total embarrassment that you have thought too highly of yourself with someone.
Example: A young girl dreamed of her doll becoming mean to her. She feared and hated the doll in the dream. In waking life she was going through puberty and having issues with her mother no longer treating like like a little girl anymore.
