Reborn baby dolls look so real that sometimes you don’t even think it is a doll! It takes them up to a year to make a doll. They are made in a sole copy and sold by auction, on the Internet and at fairs.
The hobby of creating reborn baby dolls began around 1990 when doll enthusiasts wanted more realistic dolls. Since then, an industry surrounding Reborn dolls has emerged. Depending on craftsmanship, they range in price from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
On the Internet, there are hundreds of mummies who are crazy about Reborn babies and this is what they say about it in specialized blogs…
‘Hello everybody! The other day, Arseny and I had a walk in a park and took a bunch of photos. Let’s listen to what my son says:
‘It was a cloudy morning and I didn’t want to wake up. I was enjoying my sleep’.
‘Then a phone rang and mom began to talk to someone. She came up to me and said we had to get ready for a walk and that some friends of ours were coming by. I didn’t want to get up, so I cried out loud’.
‘Then mummy said that it was going to be fun, so I calmed down’.
‘It was cold outside and I understood why I had to put on my warm jacket. I was about to burst into tears again but mummy showed me a real squirrel so I didn’t!’
‘I wanted to touch the squirrel so badly!’
‘That forest made me want to sleep… But as soon as I began dropping off, a dog came up and started barking!’
‘Here we are! Right at the feeding trough!’
‘It got colder and mummy wrapped me up’.
‘At home she made me try on a one-piece suit she made for some girl’.
‘Then I played for some time and went to bed’.
‘Now it’s my turn to tell my story. Look who we have in our family now! This is Alesha! I can’t help playing with him all the time!’
‘This is my daughter, my everything!
I’m happy that she is just like I’ve imagined her to be. So beautiful and gentle. She’s my second doll and doesn’t look like her older sister at all! The older one is serious and Varya is sort of cunning. I don’t know what I would do if I hadn’t had these two in my life’.
