Haunted Playthings

Posted by Randi on Wednesday, March 13, 2019

What they want:
As the title suggests, Haunted Playthings will contain thirteen short stories about just that…haunted playthings. Including (but not limited to):

  • Ouija boards
  • Haunted dolls
  • Haunted video games or electronic toys
  • Possessed rocking horses
  • Haunted tricycles
  • Spooky swing sets or playgrounds
  • Whatever other kind of haunted plaything you want to write about! Yoyos, hula hoops, Slinkys, stuffed animals, fidget spinners, puzzles, action figures, dress up clothes, Slip and Slides, coloring books…there are loads of possibilities really.
Your story can be based on a true account of a haunted plaything (think Robert the Doll, Annabelle the Haunted Doll, or even Lake Shawnee Amusement Park). Or your story can be a total invention of your imagination. Your choice. Get creative and have fun!
