Terrifying Doll That 'Moves' Going On Display In Australia

If you ever experienced a creepy looking doll moving without being touched, the world would collectively appreciate you throwing that object in the goddamn bin.

But one bloke in sunny ole Australia has decided to keep hold of Letta Me Out and even put it on display for everyone to see.

Owner Kerry Walton has organised a whole convention for the 200-year-old 'haunted gypsy doll' and it will only set you back a fiver to get a picture with it.

Letta looks straight out of a Chucky prequel and apparently it has unexplained movements, even in front of people.

Kerry has told the Warwick Daily News: "I reckon he walks in the night time, we came in here as a new house and I've never heard so many strange things in my life."

He discovered Letta underneath a haunted house in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales nearly half a century ago and has cared for it ever since.

Inanimate objects, by their very definition, are not supposed to move, so the idea that people are claiming a 200-year-old doll is moving objects and itself without outside assistance leads me to call bullshit or plead to the owner to destroy the object to ensure it doesn't go on a murderous rampage.



If you're dead keen to see whether Letta moves in front of you, head to the Warwick Criterion Hotel Ballroom from April 20th to 29th.

But Letta's rumoured movements are child's play compared to this doll that was allegedly hurting its owners.

The doll hit headlines mid-last year, after its owner, Debbie Merrick, said the item had started attacking her husband, scratching him in the night, as well as setting off fire-alarms and taking off its necklace.


Poor Debbie and hubby Cameron, both 50, had to lock the doll in the shed after its night-time antics. The drama got all too much for the couple and they put the creepy bugger on eBay.

Paranormal-investigator Lee Steer, from Rotherham, paid a whopping £866 for the doll and had to fight off a bunch of other interested ghost-fans to clinch the sale. But Lee said shortly after getting the item that he ended up on the receiving end of the doll's fury and woke up with scratches which were the size of the doll's tiny hand.


Thirty-year-old Lee said: "My dad was downstairs in the morning, at this point the doll was still packed away, and he heard like a tapping noise on wood. He said it was a bit unusual.

"Later that day he was watching the repeat of one of our live streams with the doll. I was doing a live stream upstairs in my room.

"Then he said to my mum, 'My arm's hurting'. He lifted up his sleeve and he had six scratches on his arm."

Hopefully they either resold it or threw it in the flames where it belongs.
