Creepy Dolls


This is something that I just remembered, actually. This happened when I was twelve, and it happened in my bedroom (the bedroom that I still have. I have always been really scared of dolls, ever since I was six years old and saw a horror movie about dolls coming to life. But, even though I have a vivid imagination that can sometimes freak me out, I know that I was not imagining this: Like I said, I was twelve years old, and it was in the middle of the night, and I had just gone to bed.

Under my bed I had a big box containing this doll (the Amazing Ally-doll) that I used to play with when I was nine or ten (yes, I played with dolls when I was little but I played with toy cars and action figures as well and I still hadn't put it away in the attic, so it was still in its box under my bed (and since I was so scared of dolls in general, I had put silver tape all around the box... I know, I'm paranoid)

That night when I was trying to sleep, I suddenly hear the doll turning on under the bed! I hear the creepy Ally doll saying "Hi My name is Ally! We're going to be best friends...blablabla" (it was the same thing that the doll always said every time it was turned on) and I just lay there, paralyzed, as I heard the doll speaking. Something that scared me even more was that, the next morning when I took the doll out of the box, I discovered that there were no batteries in it at all! That day, I got rid of that doll forever.

So what do you think about it? Do you think someone/something was just messing with me, or was it something bad?

That is horrible. You should get rid of it! 😐

The only thing I could say to help you really is give it away or throw it away!

My sister have this baby alive doll and sometimes when we are asleep it laughs on it's own without batteries. Maybe you should get rid of of it for awhile and observe it.

The same thing happened with my daughter's doll... Amazing Ally! There was no batteries in the doll either. It could be that the doll held the charge of the battery even after the batteries were taken out. I know it freaked me out too!

I used to have a Barbie doll, but after I realized they were scary I donated it to someone else, but I am still very very scared of them they always seem to follow you with their eyes. 😨 I hate them

To tell you the truth I don't think anyone really likes dolls all that much, including me 😢

But the fact that it had no batteries afterwards was enough to send a chill down my spine. I would have gotten rid of the demonic doll too.

May be this was your hallucination problem. As you said you've been always scared of horror movies like dolls coming into life. I guess this matter has affected you a lot.

Oh the same thing happened with me but the only difference was that it was my cousin sister's doll who is 4-5 years old and in the middle of the night it started to "laugh" without anyone pressing the button on its stomach 😢

Are you sure maybe someone was trying to scare you? Maybe while you were sleeping someone snuck into your room, turned the doll on, retaped the box, then when you fell back asleep snuck back in and removed the batteries, retaped the box? I know it's far fetched but just a thought. But then again you could probably tell if someone opened the box.

Pupper123 Thats terrifying! To be honest, I just plain hate realistic dolls and have watched those creepy doll movies as well. My grandmother has these porcelain angels and some of them wear maid clothes or victorian dresses. And one of them is out of its box and whenever I'm in that room I turn it away. My second cousin has a one of those dolls on a string and it flat out creeped me out and I kept thinking it would attack me when I held it. I'm beginning to hate dolls more and more lately and want to burn them all!

Wow that is a creepy story 😨 I had something similar happen to me when I was a child. The story is posted on here if you would like to read it. I think it could have been the spirit of a child who liked the doll a or mischevious entity looking to rattle your nerves. But if there were no other paranormal events taking place in your house at that time, then I would agree with Sasha40. Thanks for sharing your story with us. 😊 ❤

That is very creepy. My best friend has an ally doll she's my age but she got it when she was six. I hate realistic dolls and not that scared of them as most people are because honestly if they started coming to life I'll burn the little monsters! I'm only afraid of real life spirits that have aren't little pranksters that go messing with dolls to scare us and waste sleeping time. God bless ~Katherine~ ❤

Nephele: As I said, I was not asleep, I was very much awake. And no, it couldn't have been anyone messing with me since I was alone in the room (and the room is quite small, so there is no space for anyone to hide. Not even under the bed, cause I have a bunch of stuff under it) and the door was shut, and I would have seen if anyone opened it.
Sasha40: The thing is, the doll wasn't going dead or anything. I checked it several weeks after that incident (I had put it in our basement) and the doll worked just fine.

Sasha40 thanks for the info about the backup battery in toys that makes a lot of sense.

I think they got recalled cause mine did it all the time and it didn't have batteries either plus I had one of those pony heads on a stick that you played with and it had no batteries either as well and it went off almost everynight. It scared the crap out of everyone in the house. ❤

Thanks for all your comments!:)
Shinigamivixen: Well, maybe taping it was a little overboard. But hey, paranoia can make you do the strangest things xD
Flutterby: Yes, that is the only time that happened. I mean, I did have nightmares about that same doll before that, but I can't say that those dreams were caused by anything other than my vivid imagination:P

KimonoRyuu- could I have a link to that video? And what a story. I'm scared of dolls even now, I use to turn my Barbie's head around so it wasn't faceing me at night. How horrible. Is that the only time it happened?

I know how you feel about dolls, they freak me out too. Rag dolls and stuffed animals are OK, but the realistic ones, don't get me started. Your story though does remind me of a video I saw of a little girl's neglected doll (she was playing with a new one) that moved and pushed a candle. Of course no one noticed it until they watched the tape.

Here is something that you may haven't thought of. The doll had a NiCad back up and when it was going dead the doll started to speak. My son had a toy car like that it talked and made noise but it had no batteries in it, it was just the NiCad pack going dead. Hoped this helped. 😁
