There is something about the cold, dead stare of china dolls that gives a lot of us the heebie-jeebies, but a woman in Scotland has voluntarily adopted a brood of haunted dolls as her own spooky children.
Katrin Reedik, 33, has spent thousands of dollars on purchasing dolls that she believes are vessels that spirits have attached themselves to after death.
According to Reedik, being the guardian of a clutch of twelve possessed dolls is hard work and they are capable of making as much mischief around the house as twelve children.
The spirits inside the dolls have even started a fire in the house with their energy and now their human mother doesn't dare to leave them alone without an incredibly brave babysitter.
Just like having a clutch of twelve children, being the guardian of a whole soccer team of haunted dolls is hard work... check out her spooky family:
From wise 103-year-old Mystical to deceased infants Michael and Baby Blue, Reedik has a full set of haunted doll children. This includes four who contain the spirits of dead kids - Ashley, Isabelle, Heather and Gretchen - and three who confine three tragic young women confined to this mortal coil: Iris and Pearl, and 33-year-old Yulia who died in a plane crash.
However, two of Reedik's dolls are more sinister - Trena is a suspected witch, and Agatha, who Reedik thinks is evil because children are terrified of her.
Or maybe they're just freaked out by spooky-lookin' dolls...?
