Reborn dolls are a new craze currently sweeping the UK - if you haven't heard about reborn dolls, they are basically baby dolls that have been expertly crafted to look, feel and even breathe like a real baby. They have extremely life-like exteriors and expressions made to look and feel like real human baby skin with the use of colours and the addition of veins and common baby marks & scratches. These reborn dolls sometimes have mechanical contraptions built in to their chests to mimic the breathing of a real baby in both movement and sound - with open nostrils. Hair can then be added to the baby doll both on their head and their eye lashes, along with lovely little finger and toe nails.
Prices vary greatly (up to many hundreds of UK pounds) depending on the quality of workmanship employed and the amount of labour involved in creating a very realistic reborn doll with familiar skin folds and creases you would expect to find on a real baby doll. As many of these dolls are manufactured to an exact weight and size to match a real baby's dimensions, reborn dolls can then be dressed up in real baby clothes, placed in a real moses basket with lovely bedding and become a member of the family!
