Goodreads Review: Demonic Dolls

Demonic Dolls: True Tales of Terrible ToysDemonic Dolls: True Tales of Terrible Toys by John Harker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fun and fascinating.

We’ve all heard tales of haunted dolls, regardless of our positions on the scale of skepticism. Collected here are a pile of those stories, from well-known miniature miscreants such as Robert and Annabelle, to internet mainstays like Harold the Haunted Doll, and numerous lesser known dolls with… Ahem… Questionable habits and provenances.

Regardless of your belief standpoint, each article is interesting and well written, and some of them – Claire and Peggy come immediately to mind – are incredibly disturbing. The last section and it’s warning of “caveat emptor” as regards deliberate purchase of “haunted” objects is perhaps a much needed warning, whether you take it to avoid being scammed or because you don’t really want that lovely Eeyore plush choking you to death one night.

All in all, a fun read and had some cases and information I hadn’t seen elsewhere before, so worth checking out if this is your sort of thing.
