Today's uncanny doll story comes from this English account. It's about a business in Tyneside, which carefully crafts dolls into lifelike baby simulacra for childless people. This is the only picture I could find - if it's a doll, it's very well done.
The article begins with a fine Gothic touch:
A bag of lifelike eyes hangs on the wall of the Scotts’ loft. Like something out of a horror film there are heads, legs and arms strewn across the benches and poking out of boxes.
There are packs of nappies piled on top of baby clothes and birth certificates surrounded by clumps of what looks like real hair.
That comes right away this story about multiple uncanny limbs. What's going on in Britain this season?
For its part, Google offers this chilling suggestion when I googled "Turning Dolls into Babies":
Did you mean: Turning Dollars into Babies ?
That's a genre waiting to happen: Google Gothic.
