To think is going to be how I die?

We have twin boys who are 3, both autistic and non verbal.

They love songs and one has recently started signing for more so I want to try and encourage them. They also don’t have much interest in people especially other children.

After doing some reading I decided to buy a living puppet / signing puppet and it’s just arrived...

This thing is going to come to life and kill with its empty floppy hands, isn’t it?

😂 Most probably.

FindaPenny Fri 18-Oct-19 11:34:42

Kill it first!!! 🤣

Annabelle number 2 grin

It has Peter Stringfellow hair <shudder>

Ooh I can just imagine that creeping silently/floppily up your bedspread in the night... before gazing into your face. grin sorry but you started it grin

I'm crying laughing

He looks a bit like Boris

He looks very much like Boris... shall I burn it as an effigy?

They’re really expensive new and I found someone selling an overstock on eBay (can’t think why) so I didn’t get to choose the design.

I’ve put it face down so I don’t have to look into its eyes...

Put it in the freezer. It’s horrific OP.

I’m not saying it’s definitely possessed, but it’s possessed.

NearlyGranny Fri 18-Oct-19 11:57:38

Heeeeeere's Boris! You have to call it Boris, OP. For our sakes.

And yes, he will infiltrate your dreams and you will wake up in a cold sweat. 😅

Bluewavescrashing Fri 18-Oct-19 11:57:40

Good luck sleeping tonight OP!

LaurieMarlow Fri 18-Oct-19 11:58:31

OMG. Burn it.

Ahundredpercentthatbitch Fri 18-Oct-19 11:58:45

Make sure you post back here tomorrow OP so we know you’re still alive.

Ridingthegravytrain Fri 18-Oct-19 12:03:12

It probably posted itself on eBay....after killing it’s first family!!!!

@Ridingthegravytrain grin

DogAndCatPerson OMG you are right - it does have Peter Stringfellow hair. I can't unsee that now.

OP - I hope you have a suitably creepy trunk to keep him in. Put a chain around the trunk when you aren't using the puppet, and try to ignore the rattling sounds at night.

Oysterbabe Fri 18-Oct-19 12:09:56

Awww he just wants to play with you.
Forever and ever and ever.

fannyanney Fri 18-Oct-19 12:11:58

He's lovely!! Of course he's not going to kill you. He's a friendly puppet.

KurriKurri Fri 18-Oct-19 12:17:46

Haha grin

I once won a very creepy doll in a raffle - my daughter called it 'The Curs-ed Doll' and made me put it facing the wall.
I re-raffled it as soon as possible (it is still probably doing the rounds of raffles years later grin)

Yours looks much friendlier than The Curs-ed Doll. Would it look less unusual better in a hat? <clutches at straws>

TottieandMarchpane Fri 18-Oct-19 12:20:21

Well at least that’s Halloween sorted.

ChrisPrattsFace Fri 18-Oct-19 12:22:37

Your poor children. 😂

The worst thing is - they’re probably going to absolutely love it and you’re now stuck with it for life!

SinkGirl Fri 18-Oct-19 12:25:12

Heeeeeeeere’s Boris!

Or just BJ

Slaymill Fri 18-Oct-19 12:25:30

Just hide the knives to be on the safe side.

OP you do realise that you can never ever leave this thread now as we'll be convinced you've been brutally murdered by Boris/Chucky/Annabelle II grin
