On this week’s episode we are delving into the history of one of the most famous haunted dolls in the world, Robert the Doll. This one has always given me the heebee jeebees. Maybe because it’s relatable. Robert has been to blame for people losing their jobs, relationships, deaths, and all sorts of mishaps. He has gained celebrity status from his little home at the Fort East Martello Museum in Key West, Florida where he receives 100s of visitors, letters, candy, and other presents a year. Many believe that he is the inspiration for the Chucky franchise.
But what/who is Robert? What haunts Robert the Doll? Has he come to life because of the love of an obsessive child or is he a demon? There’s so much to this one.
So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.
