Reborn Dolls

What can be called “Cuddle Therapy” by some while also causing “feelings of intense unease” in others?  Lifelike “reborn” baby dolls.  They look real.  Really real.  Many appear to be breathing and have a heartbeat. 

They look so real that you better not leave one in plane sight in your car or the police may smash your window to rescue the ‘baby’.

Some customers are the elderly who may be lonely, missing their children.  The reborn dolls provide a lifelike experience.  Grieving parents are using them to help them say goodbye.  Others are weirded out but that’s OK.  I’m a little weirded out by it, but I can see why some could find them comforting. 

Here’s a good description from TLC Baby Creations: http://home.earthlink.net/~pamsbabies/berenguer.html

    Do you teach classes on how to begin reborning? If not, do you know anyone that does?
