And just to confuse things further; when they were in the limo Tina said to
Klamm, speaking of Green: "He needs your help, Papa." Klamm matter-of-factly
answers her: "Then he shall haff it. Whatever I can give." (300) Why did
Tina call him "Papa"?

Almost by definition, children in the Otherworld to whom the dolls were
given wouldn't have a daddy. Given the necessarily limited amount of memory
available in a mechanical doll, I don't think it would be expended on a
person the child could never know.
