Interesting recent discovery! About 25 or so years ago (around 1995 I think) a woman came into the music store I was running at the time, situated in central Auckland’s cool and buzzing Karangahape Road. She had heard through word of mouth by mutual friends or musical acquaintances, that I was interested in the paranormal… Continue reading A doll with a message
I get given items often these days. Maybe a little too often. Items that have been either gifted, inherited from a deceased family member, or purchased from an antique store, weekend junk market or garage sale. The owners are always certain that the item is haunted or has some sort of attachment. Soon after receiving… Continue reading Recent ”Adoption” – Feb 2021

People give me me items that scare the heebies out of them, to the point they don’t want them in their home. While I do like the concept of possessed dolls and have watched… Continue reading Two new ”haunted” additions

Can spirits attach themselves to an item or location? Can an object become cursed, possessed or haunted? How could an object store something like that? If one item can hold an energy / curse / entity (in theory), what happens if a whole room is filled with these items?

Something about this doll… Continue reading New Haunted family member from the UK!
Thought I’d introduce you to a few from my ‘haunted’ family of toys that I’ve been collecting through the years. The porcelain doll (her name is Maryanne), was given to me about 10 or so years ago.
