Blow Up 'Dolls' is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Joseph Daniel O'Toole from his bar in the Red Light District of Portland, Liberty City.


Toni drops by Paulie's Revue Bar looking for more work from JD, who informs Toni of The Dolls House casino and bordello, which is the main source of income for the Sindacco Family in Liberty City. JD suggests that Toni blow the building up and so Toni grabs a Sindacco Argento left outside of the bar and takes it to 8-Ball's bomb shop in Harwood and has the vehicle fitted with a bomb.

Toni then drives to The Dolls House and parks the car in the garage of the casino/bordello. Toni arms the bomb and then runs away from the casino/bordello and the car explodes, destroying part of the building.


Joseph Daniel O'Toole: So Toni, the Sindaccos' got this place - 'The Dolls House'. It's a casino AND bordello in one.

Toni Cipriani: Classy, so you might lose at the tables, but you can bank on the ass!

Joseph Daniel O'Toole: Heh heh! Well, the place is key to their setup over here. If you were to, uh... put it out of business, you know, uh... blow it up or something. I'm telling you, we'll be golden with Salvatore!

(Toni drives to The Dolls House in a van full of explosives)

Sindacco #1: Who is he?

Sindacco #2: I don't recognize him.

(The Sindacco guards see Toni in a Sindacco car)

Sindacco #3: Must be a new guy.


The reward for completing the mission is $1,500. Provided the player has passed Contra-Banned, No Son of Mine, and Overdose of Trouble, completion of Blow Up 'Dolls' should unlock Salvatore's Salvation for Joseph Daniel O'Toole. After the mission, Sindacco Family gang members become hostile towards Toni, shooting at him. A unique stunt jump, hidden package, and Molotov Cocktail also become available in the remains of the destroyed buildings.

Liberty City News will also broadcast a report on the explosion on the radio, adding that Leone Don Salvatore denies any involvement (as the order to destroy the building was issued by JD, not Salvatore).


  • The name of the mission is a reference to the blow up doll sex toy.
  • Either the explosive that was used to blow the Dolls House was more powerful, or the Dolls House was fitted with explosives, considering that if the player puts a car fitted with bomb in the garage of the dolls house before the mission, the building actually doesn't blow up.
  • A phone call from Joseph Daniel O'Toole may be heard after the mission if the player has already completed No Son of Mine for Ma Cipriani, Overdose of Trouble for Maria Latore, and Contra-Banned for Salvatore Leone. The phone call, however, is unlikely to be intended to occur after this mission. The script can be found here.
