Beneath the soil, there used to be a crate — buried to hide a crime, dug up to reveal the truth. It smells like earth but you detect a subtle note of something unnatural as well. Curiosity wins over your better judgement as you pick it up off your doorstep, and bring it inside.

This is how you come to learn the story, and bear the responsibility, of young Jacob’s confession.

He was a teenage boy going through tough times — alone against the world, with no one to confide in but his journal, which you now hold in your hands. Between the pages, a dark comedic horror unfolds, something bizarre and troubling that underlines every stroke of his pen. There are codes to break, and secrets darker than you could ever imagine.

Uncoiling the mystery of Jacob’s buried puppet is dangerous. Be careful; or it may just have you in stitches.

Synopsis

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.

Audience

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.

    Given as a gift.

    I purchased this as a birthday gift for my daughter in law. She told me this was the best gift she had ever received. She was amazed at the detail of the items in the package.

    A cute puppet that might murder me

    I liked the puppet and the journal, and how the story subverted my expectations, then did an additional fake out on me. Was unsure if I should dare [REDACTED] for the final physical secret, but I was pleased to see that was the right call. Used the whole lot as an RPG adventure, so I got double use out of it. Mr. Bellylaughs had a great time GMing the game! To conclude, Mr. Bellylaughs is a cool dude and you should let him in your house.

    Fascinating and creepy, but short.

    I highly enjoyed what I got. The story was engaging and the puzzles interesting. I was unsettled enough by the whole experience to take the main prop, close it inside a box, and bury the whole thing in the back of my closet! So story-wise it was everything I wanted.

    I removed one star because it only took me around 2.5 hours to do everything. I wasn't expecting days of engagement for a one-mailing experience, but thought it would take at least four or five for the price.
