Creepy doll collection for sale on Trade Me

An unusual collection has hit Trade Me - and it's immediately obvious why the current owner may want it out of their house.

The "creepy doll collection" boasts "over 20 dolls and lots of limbs".

If that doesn't quite sell it enough, the user added: "They've kept us company for long enough, now it's your turn.

"I often wake up in the night with them snuggling me, which is weird, because I always lock them in the cupboard before I go to bed."

Some of the dolls pictured have gouged out eyes, missing limbs, or mismatched heads and bodies.

It isn't clear what anybody in their right mind would use a collection like this for - except possibly for pulling an awful prank on a friend.

The listing has a $4 reserve, which it has met already with seven bids so far.
