From Vice, a piece on the increasing popularity of those "haunted" items--specifically, haunted dolls. Sellers sell, and buyers buy, these objects (on eBay, or on some other platform) and the fllip is that the toys are "possessed" by some paranormal spirit or entity. The seller affirms in some way that she or he has had some sort of experience with the doll, and the buyer purchases the doll based on the seller's description of that experience. Now, note that the buyer is actually purchasing the doll, and note the seller's experience, or any expectation of a future experience. One person the reporter spoke to noted that spirits have "free will." That's not so comforting. Do the sellers consider that maybe these entities decide that once a doll is sold, they don't want to make the trip to the new purchaser? Maybe they just want to stay with the sellers? After all, the entities aren't parties to the sale. They didn't agree. Someone call Wolfram and Hart!
