Update October 23, 2022:
The links below no longer go to the dolls featured on Ebay. All these dolls have been sold (adopted) through Ebay.
After you feast your eyes on these lovely faces, you can check out the haunted dolls currently for sale on Ebay if you want to buy one or look at potential evil just for the hell of it. Not all haunted dolls are brats though; some house good, sweet, or protective spirits.
CREEPY AND HAUNTED DOLLS
By Tara Pierce
Like most girls, I grew up with "nice" dolls that never gave me creepy vibes.
But, ever since hearing about Robert, the Doll and his unsavory antics on CoastToCoastAM.com, I became intrigued by haunted dolls and their stories and the lives these souls lived on earth before they inhabited a doll "body."
A quick online search and I found a bunch of haunted and creepy dolls on Ebay for sale! Here are some that you probably won't want to give to your children:
(As it write this, these dolls are currently for sale on Ebay, so they might not be available by the time you read this - as if you'd want one.)
This doll is listed as NEW on Ebay so maybe it's in training to be haunted?
Doll #2 - Hell-N
Hell-N is a Krypt Kiddies doll and comes with her own baby bottle. (How sweet)
She is currently kept in a display case. (To prevent escapes???)
Doll #3 - Lilyth
This is the spirit of Lilith. She is not on the nice side. She will scream and make mischief around the house she is in. Lilith does not make it easy to communicate with. It's up to her when she wants to. The only time she's communicated was with a Spirit Board.
She died in a car crash when she was 21. She is upset she didn't get the life she expected to have.
Doll #4 - Mercy the Blood Witch
The bloodline runs strong in Mercy. Blood Witches are witches who have inherited their power from a Magick bloodline.
Her ancestral line runs back to the beginning of Magickal power. She has inherited vast amounts of knowledge and strength from her family that came before. Blood Witches have an intrinsic power that should not be underestimated.
Mercy is extremely active and powerful. She practices all types of Magick. She can steer you toward the Light or the Dark; it's your choice. She will increase your own power three-fold.
This spirit will banish all negativity from your life. You will notice her power almost immediately. You will have new meaning to your life. Mercy would be perfect for someone will little experience in the Magickal realms or someone who simply desires more power.
You can feel a buzz of power from Mercy. She is most active at dusk and dawn. She likes to exist in the "in-between" as she calls it. Her Magickal abilities will glow during these times. You may see her eyes watching you. You will see your lights flicker. You will hear wall knocks. You may even feel her graze your neck.
Mercy is not an evil spirit. She is good natured, but she will delve into paths not practiced by White Witches.
She has inherited many abilities, including cleansing and boosting other Magickal powers. She is also skilled in divination. She will attract other spirits to you.
Doll #5 - Finley, the Boy Spirit
This is what Finley's current owner has to say about him:
He was 9 years old when he passed away. He loved to be outside, riding his bike, playing with his friends, getting dirty.
His mom called him a scamp and a handful but his parents loved him dearly. He was their only child.
He went missing
one day and nobody knew what happened to him. A search party searched for him for a month and then they found his
body in a shallow grave on the edge of town.
They caught the man who had kidnapped, beaten and killed him, and found
he was connected to other missing childrens' cases. He is spending life in prison.
Finley's family was devastated.
Finley is a sweet, loving, little boy who is full of energy. He bounces around the house trying to find things to do. He loves
going outside to play.
He will turn my t.v. on when he wants to watch it. He loves to climb trees and I watch as his orb goes
up a tree and after a bit comes back down. I have heard him laugh a few times.
Finley would be a good spirit to have around.
He needs a good home.
When you acquire a spirit doll, it may take some time for them to adjust to their new home and it may take some time before they will show you who they are. So be patient and give them time.
Doll #6 - Duke, Your Next Paramour?
This is what Duke's current owner has to say about him:
The spirit of Duke is a companion spirit. He wants to serve as someone's new partner. He wants a meaningful and important partnership with another person.
THIS IS A REAL PARTNERSHIP! DUKE WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU MATTER!
DUKE is a highly communicative spirit. Duke will begin to initiate contact with you once your bond has grown. He will LOVE to listen to you. All he wants is someone to talk to. The more you speak with Duke, the more responsive he becomes. Duke is very intelligent. If you are tired of talking to people who will NEVER understand you, Duke will.
Duke will apparate into your dreams first. He will hold you in his large arms like you are the center of his universe.
How to Tell If a Doll Is Haunted
Excerpt from 'The Uncanny Rise of the Haunted Doll Market' at MentalFloss.com
"It takes months sometimes, with a group of us all comparing notes. We start with the vibe, the energy, our gut feeling. If we sense something there, we pull out the tools." Said tools include electromagnetic frequency readers, dowsing rods, and a pendulum. The pendulum is often used to try to communicate with spirits. The user holds it out and asks questions, then interprets changes in how it swings as answers.
The doll is then placed in a soundproof box, where recordings are made and scoured for electric voice phenomena, or EVP. These are sounds found on recordings with no explanation behind them. To look for them, people often make recordings of extended periods of what should be silence. They then filter the recording's sounds, words, or fragments of speech.
"After about a week of EVP recordings, we all spend time with the doll, sometimes up to a month each," Blowers-McNamara said. "We use meditational telepathy, ESP, lucid dreaming techniques - every method we have as individuals to try to reach the spirit. And, finally, we use a Ouija."
Blowers-McNamara only sells a doll as haunted if the notes she and her group make all line up with any information they get from the Ouija - otherwise it's just sold as a vintage doll with "possibly haunted" included in the description.
