Reborn Baby Dolls in the News
Reborn Dolls have been getting a fair amount of coverage in the news, most of the stories told for shock value and entertainment. When you look a little more closely at the stories, there isn’t anything shocking about them – but fascinating.
Reborn Dolls have grown into a highly specific sub-culture that is providing many women with a unique form of solace, grief support, stress release, and/or a much needed outlet for their desire to care.
Why all the fuss about a Reborn Baby?
The fuss really centers on the fact that the Reborn Baby Dolls are made so well.
Each doll is hand crafted to be a unique replica of a newborn child. Buyers “adopt” the doll, and costs can reach into the thousands – but most come in at around £100.
The fuss is in the realistic appearance of the dolls. As their owners carry them around, or drive them around in real car seats – they have often been mistaken for real infants left in what could have been dangerous situations.
Here is the funny thing, the women who own the dolls never lose sight that the doll isn’t alive. They can’t be faulted for leaving a doll in a car on a hot day.
That’s ridiculous. It’s the shame/shock of the person who first thinks it is a real child left in a hot car who finds out it’s a doll that fuels any outrage – when there is none there at all.
Why are some Women drawn to Realistic Reborn Babies?
The off demographics of the Reborn Dolls tell only part of the story of why they are so attractive to some women. The buyers are typically white, conservative and Christian women though of course not always.
This is a demographic that values childbearing and rearing highly. For women who cannot conceive, have lost a child, are past child bearing age, or cannot support having more children – the dolls are a way to preserve and protect the integrity of their identity.
Lifelike Reborn dolls UK are about much more than collecting, they are about healing.
This is about more than Collecting Lifelike Baby Dolls
Psychologists are torn about the helpfulness of the dolls. They recognize, as does the rest of the medical profession, that cuddling a doll can cause the body to release hormones that promote relaxation.
For those who have lost young children, the doll can become a way to transition from grief back to life.
For many collectors though, the issue isn’t about grief or stress.
It can give some Women a Chance they never had

The main difference is you can hold this avatar in your arms.
