Shortly after the rare quintuplets were born, they were taken from their parents Oliva and Elzire and were put on public display in the Quintland museum where they became an attraction to almost 6,000 tourists a day. Through tons of memorabilia, the sisters brought in $51 million revenue to the Government of Ontario.

In 1943, their parents won the custody battle of the five sisters. However, the sisters claimed that they were deprived and abused by their parents during their stay with them. Three of the surviving sisters even claimed that their father sexually abused them when they were teenagers.
