HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (CBS) ― Thousands of women say their wish came true after they come in contact with a set of statues, wooden figurines from Cote d'Ivoire believed to grant fertility to whomever gives them as much as a stroke.
It's a phenomenon that draws women worldwide to see if there's some truth behind the folklore.
Some of these women were told by doctors that they'd never be able to conceive. With just a touch of a hand, they say, things changed. Some avoid the statues for the very same reason!
The statues will premier in Hollywood on May 2, 2009, at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium.
Would-be parents are invited to come in and touch them for free during regular business hours, 10 a.m. - midnight daily.
