Man spooks family with haunted doll collection


Posted on Friday, 14 July, 2017 | Comment icon 26 comments

63-year-old Barry Collingswood has a collection that is bound to give just about anyone the creeps.
A full-time carer for his wife who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, Barry's obsession with collecting china dolls began last November when one of them caught his eye in a local charity shop.

He now has a room filled with 30 creepy old dolls and maintains that most of them are haunted.

"I wasn't the sort of person to buy dolls and I never had done before but I went into an old shop and thought: 'Oh, that's a very nice old doll' only to be offered two more for free," he said.

Unsurprisingly however, his young son Josh finds the whole thing a little disturbing and is looking forward to moving out to live with one of his friends in the near future.

"It will be nice to be in a house where there aren't haunted dolls watching me," he said. "During the daytime the dolls aren't so bad but at night the mood in the house turns completely."

"I don't think all of them are haunted but I do get quite creepy feelings from them and I sometimes feel as though they're watching me when I'm home alone."

There's no way I'd have so many haunted dolls in my home. One would be bad enough.

Growing up i had a bozo the clown puppet. It was awesome to do childish act shows for family and friends...and then i saw poltergeist. That clown took on a new image after that and completely ruined my sleeping schedule.  But I'm all better now..

For some reason that conjured up images of you doing some kind of spell as you ritualistically burned the puppet in question

Not any more unusual than grown men who collect pastel-colored toy ponies.

Lol...oh ok...robots are kinda cool. I've sort of conjured this image up in my head.... Speaking of collections, I like to collect shells off the beach...and also these little guys. Seriously, I can't resist them ...

This reminds me have you ever looked at the ebay listings for haunted dolls? I do it sometimes because I find it interesting. Most of them are most likely fake but some of them have such eerie deions ( demonic etc)  I wonder why anyone would want to chance buying them.

For the novelty of having a haunted object, of course.
