My husband did that once and I remind him of it every chance I get!

when a was younger i had a small stuffed animal that spoke when you poked it's belly. i was sleeping one night and i heard it go off across the room. I shared a room with my mom at the time so I screamed for her and when she woke up the toy stopped talking. I told her what happened and she just told me to knock it off and go back to sleep. before she could finish her sentence though, the toy started up again. freaked her out more than it did me! We figured out later that the batteries were dying but that didnt stop me from ripping the doll to peices before i threw it out the next morning. :)

Gee, I am surprised that so many are placing so much emphasis on the doll. I would either create my own monster be gone spray or buy the product and make a big production before bed time, spraying (gee, it could be air freshener) all around and telling your sweetie, there now there will be no more monsters or anything scary in your bedroom again and that mommy and daddy are in the other room.

Hmmmm any one have the number to Ghost Busters??
When I was 9, we had a rather large earthquake while I was at school. I came home early and camped out in the den with my mother and brother while my dad stayed at work. My mother agreed that my brother and I should sleep downstairs, in case of an aftershock she'd rather we were downstairs, and us too.

I had to go up to my room to get my jammies on. I went up, stuck my arm through the door, scared as all hell, and flipped on the light. The first thing I saw as I peeked my head through was the porcelain doll my aunt had given me, sitting atop the shelp in the corner of the room, STARING AT ME. Scared the living bajeezus out of me. Today I can still remember, the look. Horrible.

I am convinced little kids hear and see things adults don't.
