What is a reborn?
A ‘reborn’ is
a doll that looks and feels incredibly realistic - just like a real
How is this realism achieved?
A doll or a
doll kit is painstakingly and meticulously transformed from a blank
canvas into a ‘reborn’ by a number of processes.
thin layers of heat set Genesis paints are applied to build up a
realistic skin tone. Further blushing, veining, and mottling
techniques are used to recreate the translucent skin tone of a
newborn infant. Tiny broken capillaries on the eyelids, baby
scratches, stork bites and milk spots can be added to achieve the
ultimate in realism. Each tiny finger and toe nail is coloured,
tipped and sealed for that ‘freshly clipped’ look and ‘moisture’ is
added to the corners of the mouth, eyes and nostrils for even more
Will the paint rub off?
No. Heat set
Genesis paints are permanent and will not fade or rub off.
What is micro rooting?
is a painstaking and time consuming process which involves
directionally inserting one tiny hair at a time into the doll’s
scalp using a very fine gauge needle. It takes days to micro root
one head of hair but the effect is stunning- there are no ugly plugs
of hair on my babies –just beautiful hair which follows the natural
hair growth pattern!
What is the crown?
The crown is
the swirl of hair that all babies have towards the back of their
directionally micro root a crown on all my babies, so even when the
hair is dry, they still have a definite swirly crown! Just another
level of realism that I like to add to my babies.
What kind of hair do you use?
I only use
the best Premium Angora mohair from the best suppliers. This hair is
shiny and beautifully soft, just like a real baby’s!
Can I style my baby’s hair?
Yes. It can
be gently styled and spritzed.
What fillings do you put in your babies?
I only use
the best fillings: tender touch ‘baby fat’, poly pellets, ultra fine
glass beads, non rusting steel shot and soft fibre fill.
Is there any sand in your babies?
absolutely not – so they can be posted worldwide.
Can I pose my baby in different positions?
Yes. All my
babies come with a high quality jointed body so you can pose your
baby in many different positions. As the head is weighted, you will
also need to support the head just as you would with a real baby!
Does the baby contain magnets?
give my babies a magnetic dummy/pacifier. Care must be taken around
electrical equipment and people fitted with a pacemaker as the
magnets are very strong. I can remove the magnets if requested.
What size clothes does the baby wear?
wears real 0 -3 month baby clothes and will arrive home with a
pretty layette, a talcum powder scented nappy, a dummy/pacifier
(unless otherwise requested) care instructions and a birth
