Haunted Dolls Terrorise Family!

A DAD\ has revealed his unusual collection of “haunted” dolls and even claims one of them tried to KILL him with a pane of glass.

Full time carer Barry Collingswood, 63, started picking up the dolls eight months ago and since then has seen his collection swell to more than 30.

Barry and wife Sarah’s bedroom now contains 30 old dolls which have been brought from second hand shops with Barry believing at least ten of them are “spirited”.

Sarah, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, told her husband to get rid of the first doll he bought home without even seeing it because she claimed to have a bad feeling.

Barry said: “The very first doll I brought into the house Sarah said, ‘I don’t want to look at it and I don’t want it in this house.’ So I went to get rid of it.

“I know it sounds crazy but I got up on the wall outside about to put the doll which was still wrapped in polythene in a bin when a gust of wind unwrapped it and all of a sudden I was on the floor.”

“There was a pane of glass which I almost put my wrist through. She must have sensed what I was doing and tried to kill me.”

Son Josh, 18, has compared his dad’s home in Kingsbridge, Devon, to something from the 2014 horror film Annabelle which features a haunted doll which torments a family.

He said: “It will be nice to be in a house where there aren’t haunted dolls watching me. I’m hopefully moving out this year to live with a friend.

“During the daytime the dolls aren’t so bad but at night the mood in the house turns completely.”

“I don’t think all of them are haunted but I do get quite creepy feelings from them and I sometimes feel as though they’re watching me when I’m home alone.”

The family also believe the dolls have turned appliances on and off in the home without warning.

Barry’s wife Sarah, 56, has even claimed she found an unplugged tumble dryer switched on during the middle of the night.

And their daughter Natasha is also not happy with the extra house guests.

The 21-year-old said: “Every time I go home there’s a new addition. Mum will send him out to get milk and he will come back with a new doll. We often don’t know where he gets them from.

“At the start my mum would have to throw a blanket over them before she could go to sleep but now I think they’ve both adjusted to the odd collection.

“I try to avoid them totally when I visit home.”
