If you are a new visitor and not familiar with what a reborn doll is, let us explain. Reborn Dolls or Fake babies are becoming very popular and highly collectible.
The process of reborning a doll is being able to create as realistic baby as possible. This is achieved by firstly buying or creating a doll mould to start the reborning process. It is then neccessary to begin colouring the dolls head, body and limbs through a variety of different techniques to give a very realistic human skin effect. This takes multiple layers of different paints to create mottled effects such as that of a newborn baby. also add veins and other methods to add that real lifelike quality effect.

The babies are weighted and stuffed to feel very cuddly and similar to that of a baby. The arms, legs and head are also weighted to give each doll a comparable baby weight. For the doll to have realistic hair our prefered option is to root the head and eyelashes with high quality coloured mohair. The rooting process is achieved by using a special needle which locks each individual strand of hair into the vinyl doll body. This is done strand by strand and can take days, patience is essential. The baby dolls hands and feet are also coloured, their tiny nails have been manicured and varnished to give a nice gloss finish. the dolls have both open and closed eyes. The nostrels are also opened so the baby can breath and also gives a lifelike finish. Other ideas can be added such as heartbeat, magnetic dummy and magnetic hair ribbon depending on customers specifications. To finalise the creation the new lovely baby is dressed in quality baby clothes and boxed in a nice package ready for a new home.
