The Buried Puppet
A crate, once buried deep beneath the soil, is discovered on your doorstep. The truth of a ghastly crime is hidden within its contents and a subtle, yet strangely indecipherable scent, seeps through the cracks. In spite of yourself, you pick it up and bring it inside.
And so, you begin to unravel the story and bear the burden of young Jacob’s confession. Feeling alone against the world with nothing but a journal as his closest confidante, a teenage boy struggles through very tough times.
Now within your hands, begins the revelation of a dark, comedic and utterly bizarre horror. Page after page divulges an ever-troubling descent.
There are codes to break and secrets darker than you could ever fathom, but be warned: uncoiling the mystery of Jacob’s buried puppet is highly dangerous. If you attempt it be careful; you just may find yourself in stitches.
This is the story of a young man’s confession, written on the pages of his detention-centre notebook. It tells of a boy moving to a new town after the loss of his mother. The bullies pick on him, his father grows distant, and — if that wasn’t bad enough — he starts seeing ghosts emerging from his bedroom walls. That’s when he finds a hidden puppet, and puts it on his hand…
Mr. Bellylaugh, it seems, is able to keep the ghosts, the bullies, and the loneliness at bay. But is the puppet really Jacob’s ally, or is there more to him than meets the eye? The answer might be found among the pages of his journal, in his free-hand sketches, through library database searches, or somewhere far more devious.
The main themes of this experience are isolation, dark humour, bullying, haunting, murder and demonic possession. Your recipient will enjoy it if they are fans of horror, comedy, puppets, the occult, or just strange stories set in small-town America.
The Buried Puppet is unsettling and therefore not suitable for young audiences. It has has been officially classified 13+ by a third party rating expert.

I have watched the mysterious package company from the sidelines for a few years, never pushing that checkout option. Well I finally did and The Buried Bundle was everything I wanted and more. Engaging story, unique items that put you in the middle of it all. It spooked my daughter so much I unfortunately had to keep the crates in my trunk as I tried to solve them so when I tell you how authentic it all looks feels you know I’m telling the truth. Well done!
Bought this for my 3 kids (ages 9-11) who have a pretty good grasp of thriller/horror for their age. They loved it! The story was brilliant (we read it as a family) and the artifacts were interesting and cool. My kids have each claimed one. The only thing that could be improved is the internet links, while it was super cool that they were there, they didn’t add a lot to the story and were a bit tedious to sift through. Overall a great experience!
A true one of a kind experience like it, would give someone goosebumps and send chilling senses through their spine. From the distressing book, to the sinister puppet, the bundle is worth it down to the cent, an essential piece of what's only described as hauntings from another world!
I ordered this for my son & his girlfriend. They are both into scary things so this fit the bill. The girlfriend tore into it immediately, but doesn’t like keeping the artifacts out of the box, because it creeps her out, especially the puppet. Also, customer service was incredible. I had to have it delivered by some way other than USPS because of package theft at my son’s apartment complex and they worked with me to have it delivered by UPS to a UPS store for pickup. My son has said he will definitely get others as a gifts for his girlfriend. Always looking for unique gifts for my grown kids and this company has hit it on the nose. Will be a repeat customer!
