Did you know?

In the real life, Annabelle is a Raggedy Ann doll said to be haunted by Ed and Lorraine Warren, who describe themselves as paranormal investigators and demonologists. The doll resides in a glass box at The Warrens’ Occult Museum in Monroe, Connecticut.

The real story of the Raggedy Ann doll

I had a Raggedy Ann doll as a child as so many others, but back then I didn’t know the story of a real possessed one.

The doll was purchased at a second-hand hobby store and given to a friend as a gift. The two girls, Angie and Donna, lived together and quickly feared the doll. As strange things began happening, like the doll would end up on the floor instead of the chair, or ended up on the couch instead of the bed. Outside Angies’s door immediately after she was returned to Donna’s room.

The Annabelle doll story quickly became more sinister. Soon, the girls started to find notes around their apartment. The strange thing was that the notes were written on parchment paper, and neither of the two girls had ever used parchment paper before. The notes said various things, but most commonly, they said things like “Help Lou” and “Help us”.

Finally, the doll was found with literal blood on her hands. It seemed almost like the blood was coming from the doll itself. That was it. It was time for the girls to call in some help in the form of a medium to find out just what was going on with this doll before things got worse.

The first medium

The first medium sat down with the girls and Annabelle. The story that Donna and Angie were given was that the land on which their apartment complex was build used to be a field. A young girl, aged around seven years old, was found dead there many years before. When the doll came into their apartment, Annabelle’s spirit was still in the area in which she’d died, and because she was fond of the doll, her spirit became one with it. Annabelle became Annabelle the doll. Unfortunately for the girls, Annabelle became Annabelle the haunted doll. Donna and Angie were very loving and giving, however, and because they were felt sorry for the poor girl that had been found dead alone in that field, they wanted the doll to stay because they didn’t want her to be left alone.


Lou was a friend of Angies and one night while hanging out together in the house they heard a strange noise. At first they thought it was an intruder, but realized it was coming from Donna’s bedroom who wasn’t home at the time. Lou entered the room and instantly felt pain on his chest, and saw a series of claw marks, like someone had scratched him. No one was in the room. What was stranger still about these scratches is that they healed straight away and within just two days there was no trace of them at all. The Warrens were then called in.

The Warrens

A priest was called into the apartment along with the Warrens and it was discovered that Annabelle’s main goal was to take possession of Donna’s soul. Annabelle was a demon. She was attached to the doll. The Warrens said that demons don’t possess items or things, instead, they possess people. The priest eventually exorcised the apartment, and the Warrens took Annabelle away with them. They were plagued with car problems the whole way home: the power steering failed, the brakes failed and the engine of the car kept stalling. The problems ceased for a little while once Ed Warren sprinkled Annabelle with some holy water.

When the couple arrived home, Ed put the doll on his desk, but strange things continued to happen. The doll moved from one room to another all by herself.

Annabelle is still around today, residing in the locked glass case that the Warrens built to keep her from getting free and roaming around their house. There is a warning sign on the case, saying “Do Not Touch” as well as a cross. Some say that they see Annabelle moving around the case, waiting to get free.

Annabelle in the Conjuring wreaked havoc on those around her, and the real Annabelle doll most definitely did the same.
