Conclusion:

Based on the investigation conducted on this date , ThePPA was not able to detect any evidence of interactive spiritual activity. No proof of a haunting was discovered but at the same time, ThePPA was not able to dismiss any claims made by the clients nor identify any alternate causes for activity that may have been perceived as paranormal but were not. ThePPA recommends to the clients to check any toys that activate by themselves to see if they had previously been in the “on” position. Toys that are “on” but have secondary buttons to activate the action often start to play when the batteries are drained. This could not be determined during the investigation as a cuasing factor. This information along with keeping track of how old the batteries are may identify some of the toys turning on by themselves as being caused by normal malfunctions, but not all of the toys, and by no means can it explain any movement by the toys that do not run on batteries.This investigation remains inconclusive at this time.
