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!

Forget the table and the rabbits: there is a pentagram on the other ceiling!

Jhoa
Community Member
3 years ago

The pentagram is a symbol of truth and life; with each point representing an element of the earth. Some people have different meanings they ascribe to it, but it's generally a positive sign. It's a 'negative' sign if two points of the star point upward, instead of just one. Then it's a symbol of satan. Since tis one is on the ceiling, it's hard to tell which one it was intended to be, but I'm guessing it's just a harmless pentagram - actually looks quite pretty, imo, but that's just taste.

The mirror. No point in having one that high if it isn't angled to reflect something of interest. Ah, maybe it's a Feng Shui mirror. They reflect bad energy back to the original sender.

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.
