Ruby the Haunted Doll

Ontario, 1920-1940

Planet Weird Private Collection

One of the most mysterious pieces in the private collection of the museum, Ruby the Haunted Doll, has the distinction of being of being the only object that makes guests feel physically ill.. so far, at least.

Passed down from generation to generation, Ruby spent decades in attics and basements, her owners too creeped out to keep on display. Not only did she have a talent for moving from room to room by herself, whenever picked up, her touch seemed to induce feelings of intense sadness, and in some cases, nausea.

Fortunately, Ruby found her way into the care of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, where the curators now transport her around the country, sharing her strange and sorrowful story with thousands of people. Just watch your gaze. Ruby doesn’t enjoy being stared at, and she has a funny of way of letting people know..
