A Doll's Story is the 5th episode of Season 2 on Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


After agreeing to babysit Amanda, Sabrina gets excited at the thought of being paid $100 to keep an eye on her incorrigible cousin. However, Sabrina soon realizes that Amanda is more than she can handle when she gets turned into a doll and put in her cousin's toy box, where she meets the other people that made Amanda mad. The Quizmaster then shows up to tell her that her assignment is to get everybody out of the toy box.

Meanwhile, irritated at how much time they have spent together, Zelda and Hilda decide to go to an Other Realm spa to spend some relaxing time apart but discover that they have been put in the same room and become rivals for an appointment with a renowned witch known for her "baby-butt facials."
