Baby Dolls That Look Real

babydollsthatlookrealIsn’t it amazing at how realistic some baby dolls are these days? Recently, there was even a story on a TV news program about how police busted the window out of a car to save a baby that was trapped inside during a very hot day. However, as it turned out, the baby was actually just a very realistic looking doll! There is a trend in the doll collecting world that centers around baby dolls that look real. These dolls are usually referred to as “reborn” baby dolls. Most of them look incredibly real, and have the features and the weight of a real baby.

The idea of reborn baby dolls has been a bit controversial as there are many women who treat them like actual newborn babies. They dress them, rock them, stroll them around town and present the dolls as their children. Many of these same women have a large collection of babies which they have named and have nurseries decorated for them. Often, these are ladies who either never had kids of their own or their children are grown.

The doll artist will take the eyes, hair, and other physical features and put them together to create a very realistic looking doll. The skin is painted (and sometimes they use a process called mottling) and each tiny hair is rooted onto the head using a process called micro-rooting. It takes several hours just to make one doll. The dolls can also be made to look like any ethnic group such as Caucasian, Asian, African American and Hispanic. The craftsmanship needed to make the babies look real is really unbelievable.

The bodies of these little newborns are stuffed like a regular doll, however they are also weighted to make them feel as authentic as possible. When you are holding one of these sweet dolls, you will really believe you are holding an actual baby. In fact, there are accessories you can buy which create a simulated heart beat and breathing too! This gives the babies a truly real effect.

There are many price ranges involved when you are talking about bay dolls that look real. A lot of the cost depends on whether an artist crafted the doll especially for your needs, or whether you bought a retail version. For instance, you can purchase a realistic looking newborn baby doll online for $30-100, but it would not necessarily be considered a “reborn” as they can be priced upwards of $500!

If you are looking for baby dolls that look real just for a little girl to play with, you definitely do not want to invest large amounts of money. Instead, you can find some amazingly real looking dolls for under $50 online. Little girls love baby dolls, and they are not going to be at all concerned with how real they appear. You can find clothing, pacifiers, baby bottles, cribs, strollers and other accessories that will make your little girl believe she has a real little baby.
