Im not sure I understand the Tommy taffy stori…

Im not sure I understand the Tommy taffy stories? Is he an alien or a doll or just a weird dude? And does he purposely pick people or is it just a random thing?

I’m not sure what exactly he is actually, although I’m fairly sure he isn’t human. He could be a creature taking the form of a human to inflict his pain onto others. There’s are a few pretty interesting comments in the original story page about how instead of being an actual creature, Tommy Taffy could possibly be a personification of the sexual abuse that the children go through – that could explain why the story focuses more on sexually implicit events.
