Reborn Dolls: Fake Babies? Or Real Lifelike Dolls
Reborn Baby dolls, whatever people would like to name them, fake babies or real baby dolls, they stay as dolls. Just as these dolls were carefully hand-crafted with creativity and passion, Reborners and doll enthusiasts alike hate to render them the title fake babies.
Anyone calling them that name would certainly face a mob of angry reborn doll lovers. Even if it is somehow true, the word fake is not appropriate to be used for these baby dolls, simply because it connotes mockery, forgery and crime. Calling these dolls fake means mockery to the artist’s ingenuity and hard work. Would it not hurt the same, if your favorite toy is given some names you hate to hear?
Likewise, every artist would claim that, no two reborn baby dolls are alike. So, no forgery or imitation has been committed while they crafted their creations. Each doll is carefully washed, painted, mottled, accessorized and re-assembled to become reborn. They are dressed and christened with names. Human names that the artists think are perfect for them. These newly reborn baby dolls are also furnished with birth certificates to support adoption documents. Literally, these dolls are treated like real babies.
As the prowess and realism become more comprehensive, reborn babies become more precious. Reborn artists believe that these dolls have significant roles to fulfill in their lives and in the lives of their future foster parents. Many reborn dolls are deliberately hand-crafted for mothers who have recently lost a baby, or to mothers who desired to have one. Some others make use of reborns to help treat patients experiencing dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Even more important is the kind of joy and pleasure that these dolls give to their owners. If you give a little girl, her own baby doll “sister”, you simply can’t take the smile off her face. She’ll be happy to have it and cherish it for the rest of her life.
Also, if you present sick grandma, a sweet and smiling reborn baby doll, she’ll pamper it as if the baby is one among her many children. If she can no longer recall your face, at least she remembers your name, which she gives to the real baby doll on her arms.
There’s nothing alarming for something that has been crafted with love and passion. Reborn dolls are not fake babies. They are real baby dolls that anybody would want to own and pamper.
