Reborn Baby Dolls


Hey Folks:
A friend and I were looking at pictures of the twins when they were babies; reminiscing about how cute and cuddly they were at the early stages of their lives. While looking at one of the photo's my friend said that I should get a doll made based on a picture of Leah. Of course we were saying this in jest but being the curious woman that I am I googled 'life dolls' and low and behold I found an article that linked to a YouTube BBC Documentary about Reborn Baby Dolls.

According to Wikipedia -
A reborn doll is a manufactured vinyl play doll that has been transformed to resemble a human baby with as much realism as possible. The process of creating a reborn doll is referred to as reborning and the doll artists are referred to as reborners. Reborn dolls are also known as living dolls or unliving dolls.


So.... what do you think super odd, or really cool?

Yes... this is the type of post that I choose to come back with :-)

Until next time...
MUAH!

    1. there is a cycle to life, yes babies grow up. Normally they get married and have children of their own and so on and so forth. In traditional family there are always new babies to follow behind the one's who are growing up.

      I come from a very large family, so did my husband. We wanted a large family, nature interfered. Instead we had our own and when we could no longer we became foster Parents.

      2 out of my 4 children though they have wonderful marriages going into their 10 year married each, wanted so badly to have families, but both son's married woman who could not have children.

      This was not a accident, it just happened. It also happened to my friends children and my sisters children. All wanted children and none were able to have any. No one knew why not, it just was.

      Adoption is expensive, some out of the 18 couples I know and love have adopted pets and etc.

      If people find themselves in a situation where they are not done having children around them and they are doll lovers, then why not.

      Some of us are just big kids that never grew up and still love to have our dolls and barbie collections. That makes us awesome playmates for those of us that do have Grand children, when they come to Grandma's house ;0)

  2. This is only the second post I've read from your blog. So pardon me if I'm just butting in. I just happened to be looking at these dolls yesterday because I saw one somewhere and was curious about them. I think they are on a fine line between slightly cute and creepy. I think it depends more on how you are with the doll, some women tend to treat them as if they were real people and attach feelings to them. But if you just have it as a decorative piece with other dolls perhaps, then it's not too weird. It may only startle people at first glance.

    1. there are online stores where you can buy the kits pretty cheap Around 14-20 and you can make your own body. Everything you need to learn you can learn for free on youtube.com.

      One of the stores I and my daughters buy from is "Bountifulbabies.com" My 8 year old grand daughter gets a small allowance from me for helping with chores and extra things around the house.
      I give her $1.50 per week. She wanted one so badly and her Uncle and Aunts put her to work doing small things as well.
      She has just completed her first reborn doll, and at 8 years old she did a better job than some of the dolls I've seen on ebay.com for sale. It can happen for you too ;0)
