Creepy fake babies

By erincarrasco | In Babies, Mom, Random thoughts, Uncategorized | on November 2, 2008

I clicked on this link by accident (I was looking for images of babies and this came up).  I then thought it was a link to those babies some people get in family studies classes (usually in high school to teach about caring for baby). it was not!

It’s a documentary about UK women who buy these fake babies, to fill some void in their lives, or to collect them.  The creepiest thing is that they LOOK real! The artist Deborah King sells them on Ebay for around 400 GBP-which is called adopting the baby.  If you would like to take a look at her gallery click here, it is quite amazing how real these little dolls are.

Once you get past the fact that it’s a little creepy, she’s very talented. These babies are amazing works of art, I just wonder if people are not buying them for other reasons.  I’m sure not all of them are buying them to have one in their collection, getting attached to an item like this seems a little unhealthy if people treat this doll as a real baby. But I’m not here to judge, to each their own.

    I saw the promo for this show you’re talking about! They cover different topics every week. One of the recent ones was about women who are grandmothers in their thirties. Some even planned their teenage pregnancies because they didn’t want to be old (30!!) when they had a baby. It was interesting, disturbing and I couldn’t stop watching. I missed the fake babies episode, though.

    Holy Freaking Hell. That is so so SO unnatural and sad. I can see how real the womens emotions are, but holy cow. It just doesnt seem right.

    I wouldn’t call this a fad, but there is definitely something strong going on with collecting reborn baby dolls, and classic dolls like these in general. This is interesting, considering how these realistic dolls earned their name.

    You’re right… each to their own, but I couldn’t have one of those in my house. They’re far too real. Like they might come to life at any moment. Like Chucky.
