A 'creepy' Annette Himstedt doll that's been terrifying customers for days has finally been sold to a brave new owner.

The collector's doll has been turning heads in the Woodside Animal Welfare Trust's Saltash shop since it was donated last week with many customers speculating it's 'haunted'.

Knowing they were in the presence of something unholy, the shop posted on its Facebook page and begged customers to take it off their hands.

They wrote: "Is it just us or is this doll SCARY? Come on guys it’s all good as will help the animals ".

And it now appears someone has unwittingly purchased the 'demon child' and taken it into their family home.

Speaking to the Daily Star, a shop member said that little Annette was sold yesterday (July 26) however they did not specify who the lucky owner was.

During its short stay in the shop, the creepy doll with a thousand-yard stare unnerved customers and staff alike.

Responding to the shop's Facebook post, many customers compared it to the possessed little girl from The Exorcist film.

Lorraine said: "I'm expecting her head to turn completely around and then green projectile vomit."

Daniel added: "Probably want to get a priest to bless that first."

Tanya added the doll had a "pretty little face" and just look "unloved".

Others praised the artist for capturing "the expression" very well.

Helen Lecointe, Woodside Sanctuary Manager told PlymouthLive she and her team were 'so grateful' for the donation but admitted it was 'scary.'

She said: "We are so grateful that the doll was donated. I did find it a bit scary but to be honest, not as frightening as the fact we have so many animals at the sanctuary that we need to raise funds for."

It remains to be seen whether the new owners of Annette will be hearing things go bump in the night.
