After all, dolls are supposed to be 'babies' to little girls aren't they? Kids have seen their mom 'playing' with their brother/sister and want one of their own to 'play' with, dress, etc. Thats normally a good experience so what makes it a 'bad' experience?
some dolls just look creepy.

Yes, there is another doll that "lives" in the Florida Keys named Robert. A little boy was given this sailor doll many years ago and he was heard speaking to it, then later people heard a voice speak back to the little boy. Years past, boy grew up and the doll was put up in the attic, but neighbors and passersby saw the doll peering out of other windows of rooms in the house. Family was notified the doll is looking out of a room, then they would check and Robert would be in this other room when he should have been up in the attic. The doll is in a museum now. For some reason, a couple of years ago I ran into Robert's twitter page The museum must have set it up though.

There are a couple dolls like that, lots of people are familiar with the Annabelle doll, that has caused problems for everyone that has owned it, it too, now sits in a protective case.


What I find interesting about these things...why and how do they even have the ability to 'inhabit' an object like a toy doll? If these entities are truly demons, God would have been the ONLY one that could have created it this way, or enabled them to inhabit objects.



Another thing I have wondered about, if these things are not demonic, why do bible verses and other christian objects seem to hold so much power over what these entities do?

I guess I should apologize to Robert. Sorry about the cuteness comment. When anyone says anything unflattering about Robert, they have to apologize.

Good questions. I think that it isn't only demonic spirits that occupy these dolls, could just be earthbound souls and they find a doll to inhabit. The Annabelle doll story is really scary, I saw all the movies.

I saw the movie Anabelle when it first came out and that scared the pee out of me. If the buddah statues have power then, why not other dolls/idols?

Wow, true and both scary - I think the other dolls have energy in them, both good and bad. Sometimes people have lucky charms, like a rabbit's foot, but how a rabbit foot would have good energy, I don't know. Sometimes a doll has good luck, too - good energy. They say you rub the Buddha's belly for good luck. Sometimes dolls have the other kind of energy, not so good.

Well, the same question would apply to 'earthbound spirits'...why would bible verses, or christian objects effect these entities?


I asked that question when I saw the first Annabelle movie, its scary to think that angels, demons, may actually be real and demons are actively trying to harm us with this behavior!!! Of course, it follows, if demons are real...maybe Christianity is correct, and there is a 'heaven or hell' waiting for all of us?


Scary to contemplate.
