Your parents house can be an absolute goldmine when it comes to odd and random trinkets. We all collect things over the years, a lot of it crap. But amongst it all there are some gems, weird objects that have an interesting background story and add to the rich tapestry of your family story.

With the holiday season upon us and family visits aplenty, we at Bored Panda have decided to compile a list of the strangest things that people have come across when catching up with the old folks.

It all kicked off on Twitter during thanksgiving when someone tweeted out a request for the oddest things found at their parents place. People responded with glee, sending in pictures by their thousands. Here is a selection of the best, don't forget to vote for your favourite and feel free to add your own!

And there are no birds. And also no neighbours anymore. Just graves, some fresh, some older...

I wonder how they explain this to the guests. Like, it was a gift from Captain Jack Sparrow?

This doll is from the mid-60's, I think. Her name is "Little Miss No-Name". Although, I'm not sure if this one is an original because it looks like she's missing the painted tear from her face.

Need something for scale... or they just look like regular anvils... which is still a weird collection to have... unless they're blacksmith descendants... or have some weird horse shoe fetishes....or have horses.... or make jewellery... or remove handcuffs.... On second thought, maybe not so weird

HHHmmm " back door guests" used to mean people who were casual and familiar with the household and not up themselves.. Only trouble came through the front door. Like tax collectors and such.
