ABC News: Lifelike Baby Dolls Become Cult Item When I was selling my sculpts on eBay, these dolls and those who bought them always fascinated me. I didn't make re-born babies, but I sculpted mini ones from clay. I remember one time I recieved a message from a grandmother who said that one of my "babies" looked just like her deceased grandson. This kind of freaked me out and was actually about the time I turned to sculpting fairies instead. This article is about reborn babies and how they are becoming a cult item. People buy them, dress them up, cuddle them and take them out for walks in strollers. I'm curious about this, considering these are mainly adult women buying them, some for $1000's of dollars.
