What’s A Reborn Doll?

A reborn doll is as close as you can get to a human baby. With extremely lifelike features and a realistic size, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is a baby when you first glance at it. 

The creation of reborn dolls started in the 90s. Back then, it was nothing more than a hobby for some doll enthusiasts. However, the demand for realistic dolls increased, and the dolls became increasingly baby-like in features and appearance. Presently, reborn dolls have kick-started a flourishing industry with some dolls fetching thousands of dollars.

They are known by different names such as reborn baby dolls and lifelike dolls. They are named so for a good reason. Reborn dolls are not just a product of mass manufacturing in some random factory. They require hours of time and craftsmanship to achieve their lifelike aesthetics.

How are reborn dolls made?

Reborn dolls require a lot of time to be made. They also require a lot of skill as well as raw materials to achieve the right results. The process of making a reborn doll is called reborning, and those who make these dolls are called reborners. However, if a doll is made from scratch with a kit, it is called newborning.

The different steps involved in making a reborn doll include:

  1. Prepping and stripping

The first step is to find a vinyl doll. The doll must be of roughly the same size as the final size of the doll you want. 

Then you remove the head as well as the limbs of the doll. If you need to remove the factory paint from the doll, it is done at this stage. Soak the different parts in warm water to get them ready for painting.

  1. Base painting

Applying the base coat typically involves using a blue color wash. This is done so that the undertone of the doll’s skin imitates the skin of a newborn baby, veins et al. The base paint should be applied and dried thoroughly before moving to the next step. 

  1. Applying the paint

The painting process involves putting multiple layers of flesh-colored paint. After each layer of paint, it is set with heat either with a heatgun or by baking the doll inside an oven. 

The number of paint layers depends on the color of the doll you want to achieve. A reborn doll with the lightest skin can require up to 30 layers of paint.

Blushing or adding more color to the doll’s cheeks and other parts of the body are also done at this stage. 

  1. Detailing

These include removing the factory eyes and replacing it with realistic and high-quality eyes, the opening of the nostrils and adding details to nails, and so on.

  1. Applying the hair

The hair is applied by any of the methods of rooting, wigging or microrooting. Wigging is the easiest way, but the other two ways require drilling and rooting individual hair. It can take more than 30 hours to root the hair of a single reborn doll.

  1. Weighing down and stuffing

Stuffing and weighing down the reborn doll gives it a realistic feel so that owners are required to support the head of the doll, much like a newborn.

Electronics that mimic the action of the heartbeat, umbilical cord and magnets to support pacifiers, voice boxes and stuffing to mimic baby fat are all done at this stage. Stuffing is typically done with materials such as fiberfill or pallets. Some reborn dolls come with breathing device in incubators and are called premie dolls. 

  1. Putting the doll together

The final step is to put together the head as well as the limbs of the doll, and your reborn doll is ready.

Factors to consider while buying a reborn doll

Reborn dolls are not just vinyl dolls that you pick up at the local fair. If you have been thinking about buying a reborn doll, it is important to understand a few things. Making the right choice can be a challenge as there are so many to choose from. 

Here is our list of the top factors to consider while buying a reborn doll:

  1. Price

Reborn dolls are not cheap by any means. They can carry a price tag ranging from a few hundred to thousands of dollars. In most cases, the pricier they are, the more realistic and lifelike they will be. So it is important to have a budget before you start looking for your options.

  1. Features

These dolls come with sophisticated features such as movement, mimicking heartbeat, ability to talk and motor skills. Some reborn dolls have the feature to change facial expression, mimic your skin and eye color.

They also have features to sit or lie down without assistance. The best suggestion is to establish what you want your reborn doll to do and then you will have an easy time buying the right doll.

  1. Material

Most reborn dolls are made of silicone which is a great option. This makes the doll have a soft texture and also last a long time. They are also very easy to clean. 

Some other reborn dolls are made of soft vinyl called Real Touch or Gentle touch. This has a more velvety touch. They are also easy to maintain and durable as well.

Another factor related to materials is whether or not you want the dolls to be waterproof or not. If you are buying the doll for your toddler, it is best to buy a reborn doll which is waterproof.

  1. Size

The size of the doll is another important factor to consider. Reborn dolls come in a variety of sizes ranging from 11 inches all the way up to 23 inches. At reborndollworld.com, you can choose from a wide variety of available sizes.

Reborn dolls can weigh as much as a real baby. Therefore, a reborn doll of a smaller size is perfect for children and toddlers. If, however, you are buying the doll for an adult, a bigger sized doll is a better option. 

  1. Hair

When it comes to hair, reborn dolls either have hair, or they do not. Those with hair will cost more and are a good option for adults. 

Reborn dolls with hairs are better for adults such as moms and collectors. It is because those with hair will require more maintenance and grooming. On the other hand, reborn dolls without hair are better for toddlers and babies as they will have no trouble with the doll’s hair.

  1. Clothes

Most reborn dolls come with clothes and styled with all the accessories. However, there are some reborn dolls which do not come clothed. In this case, you will need to pay extra money to buy the doll’s clothes. 

If you buy a reborn doll from an online platform, check with the seller whether the clothes are included. Some websites may advertise the doll with the clothes on, but it is not included. When this happens, you will receive only the doll and not the clothes. 

All the reborn dolls at reborndollworld.com are sold with the clothes they are advertised with. 

  1. Gender of the doll

Another factor to consider is whether you want a girl reborn doll or a boy. Although this is a personal preference, it can affect how you care for the doll and the clothes you buy. 

You also need to consider the gender of the baby if you are buying the reborn doll for a child or a toddler. For collectors, this is not much of an issue as they know exactly what they want in their collection. 

Buying reborn dolls online or making it yourself - Which is better?

One of the many good things about reborn dolls is that you can buy them online as well as make it yourself. Many people have a tough time deciding whether to purchase a ready made doll online or undertake the project oneself. The numerous tutorials and DIY blogs add to this confusion.

In this section, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of both options.

Advantages of buying reborn dolls online

Ever since the first reborn doll was made available for online purchase in 2002, they have been very popular all over the globe. The advantages of buying reborn dolls online include:

A wide selection to choose from

You can also choose the dolls based on your preference for hair length and color, eye color, those which come with accessories or without and so on.

Premium quality

When you buy a reborn doll from an online store, you can be sure that the quality is top-notch and the craftsmanship is outstanding. It is because reborn dolls sold online have been crafted by a single reborner from scratch to finish. 

Sculpting a reborn doll is more than a hobby for many artists and sculptors. It is an art form and a way of life. They will not put out anything mediocre for sale on the internet.     

Personalized reborn doll

Another great advantage to buying reborn dolls is that they can be customized to your needs and requirements. Every reborn artist or a sculptor has a unique way of fashioning the dolls since it is their creation.

So when you go online to buy a reborn doll, you can either choose the one that is already ready to be shipped or select a sculptor of your choice and give him or her your requirements. Some reborn artists can create a doll that is exactly like a child if you send in a picture of a loved one. A reborn doll is special in itself but having one made to your exact requirements is even more special. 

Value and authenticity

Many reborn artists and sculptors leave a signature mark that is unique to their work on the reborn dolls. This makes the reborn dolls sold online have a high value. It also reflects the authenticity of the artists’ work and originality.

These factors can only be availed when you buy a reborn doll online. All reborn dolls sold on our website come with a birth certificate as well.


Disadvantage of buying reborn dolls online

The only disadvantage of buying a reborn doll online, or anything else for that matter, is the inability to feel the object you are buying. Since the transaction is purely mechanical, you cannot carry the doll nor feel its texture before buying.

The best thing you can do is to read the specification of the item very carefully. And also do not hesitate to contact the seller with any question you might have. While buying a reborn doll from us, we always encourage potential buyers to contact us freely. 

Advantages of making a reborn doll yourself

There is nothing like making something by your own hands and enjoying it. The distinct advantage of making a reborn doll by hand is that you can revel in creating a doll from scratch. 

Whether it is the size, the color or type of hair, you can make the doll precisely according to your likes.

Disadvantages of making a reborn doll yourself

The disadvantage of making a reborn doll begins with the fact that you need expertise and knowledge about sculpting a doll. When you look at the videos and tutorials online, it can seem effortless and easy.

However, the real process is complex and time-consuming. You need to gather the right materials, the right tools and have knowledge of painting and mottling to get the right results.

It can also be an expensive project since you have to invest in a lot of materials, including paint, tools, hair and accessories. 

By now, you must have gathered that the advantages of buying a reborn doll far outweigh the few hiccups. Making a reborn doll by hand is by no means an easy feat. It requires skill, time and money to produce a realistic doll, and it is best left up to the experts.
