Creepy New Trend Has People Adopting Haunted Dolls In Thailand.
The Look Thep dolls are believed to be possessed by the spirits of deceased children, invited to inhabit the manufactured doll through ancient rituals.
If you thought Thomas Edison’s talking dolls were creepy, get prepared to witness something even scarier: the Look Thep dolls.
A new superstitious trend which sees people cradling, feeding and dressing up haunted dolls like a human child, is taking Thailand by storm. The supposedly possessed dolls are believed to bring wealth and luck to its owner – or parent, as they call it.
Look Thep dolls, which translate to “Child God,” are actually the modernized version of the ancient Kuman Thong practice, where people worshiped dead fetuses for blessings and prosperity. The followers of the ritual believed the soul of the child who died in the womb would make their wishes come true.
