From what I've heard, the doll isn't likely to have been found in an Irish family in around 1860s. I'm no expert, but it's something about the head and shoulders aspect of it, and the set of the hands. The hands are definitely a more modern addition, apparently.

HHhmmm, sounds suspiciously like a book i read years ago about a girl who was killed and whos spirit came back to haunt the proclain doll of the girl now living in her house..

As a book it was a good read (Blind Fury i think it was called)!!! :

Nicole,

I tried to check the doll out with the company, but they offered to sell me an Eddowes doll. What cheek!

Over the years I have seen and been offered a number of alleged haunted items. These range from teddy bears to dolls, and at one point I was given a OUIJA Board which was allegedly haunted!

The tales around such items can range from mysterious fires being caused by the objectsto things moving in the night. Other activity reported includes positioning of the haunted item by the owner, only to find it moved!

I believe it's all in the mind, if you tell someone something is haunted enough, they start believeing it!

I have a collection of "Dolls" from Horror Movies, including several "Chucky's" from Childs Play, the doll on the bike from "SAW" and more recently a 12" high Slimer from Ghostbusters! There not haunted, but the wife does not like them in the bedroom!

Here is a gallery of alleged haunted dolls!

Hi Mike,
You count the OUIJA board amongst these items????
As someone who works in this field,I would have thought that you would have appreciated the full extent of the dangers of using this object,and of dismissing it lightly.
I am usually not really too much of a serious person,and usually put in something light to go along with anything serious...but on this occassion I have only my serious hat on,so to speak.
I have seen it used on various occassions,from the time it was sold to the general pubic as a board game in the late 60's.
***Please people,DO NOT USE AN OUIJA BOARD.***
Mike,for once,we disagree.
On the toys....yes,100%...on the OUIJA...a definite NO.

ANNA.

Anna, I got rid of the Ouija board, had it burnt!

I have never, and will never use one, and try to discourage people to use them.

Recently I read an article that someone had a "Lilo and Stitch" teddy which was haunted! It was in an issue of Fortean Times, some time ago!

Hi Mike,

The only sensible thing to do with an OUIJA is to burn it.
Best Regards,

ANNA.x
