Pupaphobia: The Fear of Puppets

Pupaphobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of puppets.  Those who suffer from this phobia may also fear team mascots and marionettes.  Pupaphobia may be caused by the exaggerated features or the strange movements they make.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
