"The evil dummy comes to life to tell his own twisted tales and scary stories!"
―Official description

Goosebumps SlappyWorld is the current main series of Goosebumps books written by R.L. Stine. The series focuses on Slappy the Dummy, telling his own "twisted tales and scary stories." Slappy will occasionally interrupt the stories and provide his own commentary.

The series was first announced by R.L. Stine on March 1, 2016, during a small Q&A session on Facebook hosted by the organization Save the Children.[1] Stine later confirmed the series on Facebook in July 2016.[2]

The covers are very similar in design to Most Wanted's covers, with a solid color background presented behind the character. But unlike Most Wanted, some covers feature background elements, such as Revenge of the Invisible Boy having lockers in the back. Slappy's design on the covers and logo is based on his appearance from the film Goosebumps.

List of characters



Other characters



  • This is the first Goosebumps series to focus on one specific character.
    • To no surprise, this series features the most sequels to the Living Dummy saga at seven books currently, as well as the most sequels to a single saga in a single series.
  • Most book titles in this series are similar to other R.L. Stine books and other media:
  • Even though Slappy is the narrator of the stories in this series, he refers to himself in the third person during the books he appears in.
  • The book Fifth-Grade Zombies featured a completely different synopsis before its final release.
  • Since its inception in 2017, there has been at least one book released with Slappy as the villain per year. However, the only year to not feature any book with Slappy as a character is 2021.
  • Slappy, Beware! is the first special edition hardcover book since 2012's Goosebumps Wanted: The Haunted Mask.
  • An early title for Night of the Squawker was Feathers!
  • With the series continuing into 2023, SlappyWorld will officially be the longest running single series in all of Goosebumps with an over six year run. The runner-up for this was the original series at five and a half years.
  • Due to him providing the voice of Slappy in every single SlappyWorld audiobook, Joe Fria now holds the record for most performances of Slappy in any official Goosebumps product.
