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!

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.

Actually, I take that back because you can only really see one side of her face.

This doll is actually called little miss no name. I believe she is supposed to represent a poor or homeless child begging for something. Hence the outstretched hand with the palm up. She also has big dough eyes and a tear on her cheek
