Date of Encounter: July 15, 1977
When I was a child, I had a Raggedy Andy doll. I hated that doll, I couldn’t sleep if that doll was in my room. I just couldn’t stand it. Not long after my parents gave it to me, odd things started to happen. I had a wicker chair in my room, next to my closet, and I sat Andy in it. The only thing was, while I tried to go to sleep, I couldn’t stand Andy looking at me. So, I turned him around to face the back of the chair. The next morning when I woke up, I turned and looked over at the chair and Andy was facing toward the bed. I thought maybe my mother had come in and had turned it back around. She’s like that, everything has to be perfect. So, I didn’t think anything of it.
That night, before I went to bed, I turned him toward the back of the chair again. The next morning he was again facing my bed. So the next night I turned him toward the back of the chair and the next morning he was staring at me AGAIN! I asked my mother if she was turning him around and I just wasn’t waking when she entered my room? She told me she hadn’t been in my room any of the times Andy moved. That did it, this time I put him in the closet and locked the closet door… the next morning he was back in the chair! WHAT THE HECK! That did it; I wanted nothing more to do with him. I picked him up, walked into the kitchen where my mother was washing dishes, and threw it at her. I told her, “I don’t want HIM anymore!” It was a brand new doll, not an antique. It’s now down in my basement in an old trunk.
