Robert the Doll

top13 Robert the DollOne of the scariest tales I came across when researching this book was Robert the Doll.

I won’t even put a picture in the book of the doll which some readers have chuckled about. One criticized me but I’m not adding it.

This story is scary. The doll is possessed and neighbors complained to the parents of Robert, he named his doll after himself, that it mocked them when they walked by the house. Robert could be heard talking to the doll. The doll was evil. It was later owned by a little girl who swears to this day that the doll tried to kill her.

If you want to see Robert the Doll you’ll find him at Fort East Martello Museum in Key West. He is kept in a guarded glass box perched on a rocking chair and he has his trusted lion by his side.

Stories are if you want to take a picture of Robert at the museum, you need to ask him for permission. If he doesn’t want you to take his picture, he will tilt his head to one side.  If you take the picture without Robert’s approval, it is said that both you and your family will be tormented with bad occurrences for the rest of your life!

See why I didn’t include the picture? You can read more about Robert the Doll in the book above.
