‘She has no children or close family. She has no idea where this came from or how it got there. There were no other toys or children’s items found in the home. I wouldn’t look at it too long if I were you. As for me, this is staying in a bin at an off-site storage facility so it doesn’t scare me or my family.’
The seller, who is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, offers free 30 day returns if viewers aren’t satisfied with their spooky purchase.
