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!

My 26 yr old son would sh*% his pants if he walked in & saw that lol. He is deathly afraid of dolls even though he had a baby doll at age 3 & loved it & took care of it. When he got older we were looking for Christmas decorations downstairs & all of a sudden he let out a scream & said Nope I'm done. I thought he saw a mouse or something. Come to find out he opened one of the plastic bins & my Grandmother's old china doll (The size of a human toddler) was laying in there on her back & when he opened it in the semi dark under the stairs storage closet he got a scare lol. Ever since then he's been afraid of dolls.

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.
