Talking Ernie Doll Scare

Thank you for reading my story. In April of this year, it was a cold night night and my father and his wife were out and I don't like being alone, so I decided to call one of my friends to keep my mind off of being alone.

Since it is warmer down in their area of the house, I walked into their living room. When you go down into that area of our house, you have to walk through an office room and there are two doorways that go from that room into two other rooms. One doorway leads into the living room and the other leads into the other kids' bedroom (the kids were with my dad and his wife).

While I was sitting in the living room talking on the phone, I heard someone say "I feel great!"! My body froze for what felt like 10 or 15 minutes but was probably only 10 seconds. I snapped out of my trance when I heard it again and while I was trying to remain as calm as I could, inside I was freaking out.

My friend asked if I was ok and I asked her to please stay on the phone with me while I checked the house. As I stood up, I heard a loud snoring sound! I took 5 steps and then I heard "I feel great!" again. This time, my friend on the other line heard it too and asked what that noise was, but I didn't say anything yet.

I was trying to be quiet in case somebody was in my house. I walked into the office room, and didn't see anything that could possibly be making that sound. The second I turned by back so that I could look into the playroom, I heard "I feel great!" right behind me! I turned and saw my brothers' sleep and snore Ernie doll propped up in a corner facing me. It started snoring while I was staring at it. I ran out of that room and into the main living room, slamming the door shut. About 5 minutes later, I heard Ernie say he felt great about three more times, even through the shut door.

The next morning, I told my father about it and he said maybe the battery was dying or it's motion activated but his wife tried everything she could think of and the doll was silent. Then, she pressed her fingers into its' stomach and he announced that he felt great. I have heard that there was a child that died in our house before we lived there, and we have had previous experiences with its' spirit and other spirits before.

Please comment and tell me what you think!

  1. did you get rid of it? did it ever do it again?

  2. wow, I have never heard of anything like this, I will never stay home alone with dolls in the house.... then again, I'd never stay home alone; but freaky story I totally believe you.

  3. When my daughter was a baby around 1998 ,I bought a Ernie doll that snored and said the words "I'm sleepy " .It was at a garage sale and the man who sold it to me for 3 dollars told me it belonged to a child who died. I felt sad but bought it anyway because I was unemployed and had 2 older children already . Well in the middle of the night around 3 am it would start snoring and say I,m sleepy .This happened every night for quite some time and it would wake me up so I put Ernie in the closet thinking it would stop ,well it still went off for no apparent reason and to make it snore you had to press down pretty hard . Finally I said a prayer and blessed it and thrwe it in the garbage . It just freaked me out .

  4. I got rid of mine

  5. Bought my daughter one in 1996. Ernie still talks to this day on his own. Have never changed batteries in him.
