In continuing our experiments into techniques and gadgets used by other paranormal researchers, Bryan suggested we give the "Devil's Toy Box" a try.
Joshua P. Warren first discussed this paranormal gadget on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. According to Mr. Warren by taking six mirrors and facing them inwards to make a box, it will cause a back and forth energy loop. Allegedly after some time you could be hearing strange noises coming from the cube. Mr. Warren claims to hear growling and other weird noises have been reported coming from the mirror box.
Jenny Kerr:It was pretty quiet with this toy box.
Becky Ray:In doing research into this project, several places claimed that the box built up activity the longer it sits, so I built it about a month before we conducted this experiment.
What happened after I built the box? Absolutely nothing. When I attached the amplifier to the box to record EVP what happened? Absolutely nothing unexpected. In my opinion, the "Devil's Toy Box" is a waste of time and yet another bogus paranormal research tool.
Jennifer Sprague:Over the centuries there have been tons of stories, legends and folklore surrounding mirrors and the supernatural. They've often been viewed by some as "portals" to other dimensions. And over the years many people have equated mirrors with having some sort of "supernatural" or "paranormal" ability giving them the "power" to possibly give us the ability to see into the future, trap the dead, release so called "demons" and so forth. It was even said at one time that mirrors should be turned to face the wall after a person has died because if left facing the deceased person their soul would be come lost. In my opinion the idea the "Devil's Toy Box" represents is no different than those folkloric stories. The idea that a "spirit" can be trapped inside a box simply because it has "mirrors" and giving those "mirrors" some sort of supernatural ability to be able to magically trap a "spirit" is no different than believing black cats are bad luck or any other sort of superstitious belief. We decided to test it out. Becky kept it a month prior to our group experiment to see if she could find any similarity in Mr. Warren's findings during our experiment. We found no similarities what so ever. No noises, no rattling, no growls, no words. Just the simple hum of the amplifier. No EVPs were found either. So it's my opinion that in our findings as a group during our experiment that there is no evidence to support that a "spirit" or "entity" can be "trapped" inside the "Devil's Toy Box." We look forward to continuing our experiments into techniques and gadgets used by other paranormal researchers as well creating and testing out new experiments as well. We will post our experiments on this page! Looking forward to the next one! :-)
