Robert the doll is a popular haunted object, with many articles, blogs, podcasts and YouTube videos discussing him. The doll initially belonged to Robert Otto, an artist. It was made in Germany and given to Robert as a young boy by his grandfather.
After Robert and his wife passed away, the doll remained with the property until 1994 when it was sold East Martello Museum, although it also spends time at the Old Post Office in October.
By all accounts the doll moves independently and can change its facial expressions, it has been heard to laugh at times, typical creepy doll stories.
But there is more to it than that, local legend claims that the doll has caused car accidents, loss of employment, injuries, divorces etc Apparently the doll does these things because people are disrespectful to it in the museum or Post office, taking pictures without asking is a big no-no. However, it has never been explained how the doll causes these mishaps.
What do you think, superstitious people blaming misfortune on a creepy doll? Or unexplained paranormal stuff at work?
