This is one of the creepier things I've ever heard... the doll's picture does look like a baby corpse. Somehow I see a link between this and the German corpse story, but I'm not sure what it is.

Corpses can have that uncanny valley aspect, Jen. The flicker of life removed, they're objects, yet we nudge our perceptions of them backs towards housing life once more.

reborn dolls

It's not creepy at all. Not only are the reborn babies fun to collect but they can be very theraputic, especially for women. Studies have shown that holding and cuddling a baby, whether a real baby or a realistic baby, releases hormones in the body that promotes emotional well being.

Why should there be so much fuss about so- called "reborn dolls"? If people want to collect lifelike dolls, why not? If you want a realistic portrait painted of a real person, is that creepy too? A doll is a facsimile of a baby - why shouldn't that doll look as realistic as possible? Personally, I think it's OK for people to collect reborn dolls, have their portrait painted or have any other hobby they want, as long as they are not harming anyone else.

GeenaMae

Personally, what makes ME shudder is watching grown men spint 'n polish their thousand dollar remote control car collections. How's that for creepy?

Reborn Doll Sale

I don't see a point why people depend their happiness with this reborn dolls. They were just merely a craft, an art or whatever you want to call them but having a feeling like they were your own child, parents should consult their psychiatrists really soon.

reborn dolls

It doesn't seem all that crazy or creepy. After all, there are MUCH worse hobbies out there which people could be participating in, so who cares if they collect dolls.
