10 Of The Weirdest Objects Michael Jackson Kept At Neverland Ranch

- Page 1

You've all heard of Neverland Ranch, and if you haven't...well then I'm not sure you live on this planet. Owned and occupied by Michael Jackson, Neverland Ranch was based off the fantasy island of Neverland from Peter Pan, where boys never grow up.

The property became pretty controversial, after allegations of sexual assault against Michael Jackson started circulating. In 2003, the Neverland Ranch was searched by 70 police officers after accusations arose that Michael Jackson had molested children on the premises. After the investigation, Jackson abandoned the property, saying it has been "violated." In 2006, the property went into foreclosure.

But while he was living there, Jackson accumulated some pretty odd items, all of which cost a butt load of money. These are some of the weirdest ones.

1. The Edward Scissorhand Gloves

The gloves Johnny Depp wore in the iconic movie lived at Neverland Ranch, and are estimated to have cost about $5,300. They were put up for auction after Jackson's death.

2. Life-Sized Child Dolls

When investigators raided MJ's home in 2003, they found a collection of life-sized child dolls dressed in sneakers, jeans, and other "normal" clothing. Some of the dolls were positioned as though they were having conversations with each other, and another one was set up to do a shoulder stand on a giant throne. The dolls were found in a room filled with Disney memorabilia and children's toys.

3. A Door Knocker With Two Boys Kissing

While pretty minimal, I'd just feel weird interrupting a private moment when trying to gain entry into the home.

4. A Throne

The self-proclaimed Prince of Pop really took his title seriously, and spent $1,800 to get himself a throne. There was no real gold used for it, which is why the price tag is lower than you might expect. This was also auctioned off after his death.

5. An Animatronic Grandmother Fortune Teller

I'm not sure if this was functional or not, but all I can picture is MJ sitting in front of this machine and asking it questions.

6. A Picture Of Michael Jackson As The Pied Piper

Michael Jackson can say he didn't molest kids all he wants, but the more you look at the items he had in his home, the less you believe him. I'm not saying this picture confirms the accusations, but you have to wonder how he viewed himself to have a picture like this done up.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the

The Backstreet Boys Are Trying Out The Food Industry Because They Really Do Want It That Way

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips! Well now, our favorite pop group is not only filling our hearts, they are filling
