Many reborn doll owners role-play with their baby dolls, by cuddling them, feeding them, changing their diapers, dressing them up and taking them out to places as if they were real babies. Some say it is just like any other hobby , but, mostly, these aspects of the reborn culture have been widely criticised for some sectors, sometimes referring to the reborns’ owners as people suffering from mental conditions.

The cost of these realistic dolls is hugely variable, and it might range from a bit over hundred dollars up to several thousands. There are many aspects that might influence the price of a reborn doll, but they mostly have to do with the type of materials used (vinyl, silicone or a mix of both), the quality of these materials, their ability to achieve a higher realistic look and feel, and especially the talent and reputation of the reborn artist.

As you can imagine, there is lots of hard work and time involved into reborning a doll. The production cost of it, including the original doll parts, the paints, the tools or the accessories, and, especially the time required to create a reborn baby doll, are factors that add up to the price of these life like babies.

Reborn dolls are not usual dolls and they are definitely not toys. This is why, many artists and collectors will not talk about buying and selling reborn babies. Instead, they talk about “reborn babies for adoption”. Infant Adoption, Talk, Artists

The creation of a reborn doll from a kit is sometimes referred to as “Newborning”, as, opposed to “Reborning”, as it is understood that the doll did not exist before and that it came into existence for the first time thanks to the artist’s work. However, the use of these two terms is pretty relaxed and they are usually interchanged without paying too much attention to the details. Understood, Exist, Paying, Terms

In many cases, artists would use an existing vinyl doll and transform it into a reborn by manually adding many layers of paint (sometimes up to 60 layers for darker skin tones)*, rooting its hair, adding glass eyes, eyelashes, and providing many other realistic details. It is understood then, that the old doll has been reborned into a new one. That is why this process of artistically transforming an ordinary doll into a more realistic looking baby is called “Reborning”. Vinyl Dolls, Dark Skin Tone, Ordinary

However, as reborn artist Melanie Katryn explains, a reborn is not simply a “realistic-looking doll”. It is true that reborn dolls aim the closest similarity to a real baby by presenting a very natural skin color, texture, weight, feel, hair or gestures, but for a doll to be considered a reborn there are few requirements that need to be met.

Since then, there has been a growing community of people (estimated around 20,000 worldwide) who have been interested on adopting and collecting these dolls.

Reborn Babies have become collectors’ items and also a very powerful form of art that emerged not so long ago. Despite some people dating the origins of reborning in the Cold War, when, in Germany, some mothers will renovate the old dolls of her daughters to make them look newer and more realistic, it is mostly considered that reborning started in the United States in the early 90s.
