I apologize in advance to anyone that I offend with this post, but if you relate to what I am about to write about, we likely have nothing in common anyway.
I am working from home today, so I am multi-tasking and the Today Show is on in the background. I’ve now heard the same story twice (they repeat stories, apparently). Have you ever heard of Reborn Dolls? This is one of the most disturbing things that I have seen in a long time.
People are buying these and “raising” them as real babies. It seems to be older women and empty nesters, but no matter what the reason, it is an odd “hobby”.
Doll collectors and fancy dolls have always weirded me out a bit, but these Reborn Dolls… a new level of weird. I mean, women are carrying these things around! Changing their diapers! Building nurseries for them!
Hang on, I’m going to try to figure out how much these crazy things are…
…Ok, I spent all of 30 seconds researching this… you can buy them on eBay for $61-$250. THESE ARE DISTURBING. I’m sorry, they are.
Check out this gallery. It’s giving me the heeby-jeebies. I highly recommend a google image search for Reborn Dolls.
Apparently, you can build your own or have one made that resembles a picture that you provide.
