At the risk of being kicked off mylot, please check out the following link. I've never posted a link in a discussion but this is really one of the strangest things I've seen in my life. Where does mind over matter end nowadays? http://www.aolvideoblog.com:80/2008/01/08/my-fake-baby/

It is tragic. These women cannot have their own baby, and because of the abortions performed and unmarried girls keeping their infants, there is a lack of infants available for adoption. People sympathize over women dressing up their little kitten and puppy that becomes a substitute child, but now we leer at these poor women who because they cannot give birth, will not be considered as someone who want to take care of your child unless she is a nun or a teenage girl babysitting. So they have the experience of taking care of a virtual baby.

I feel less strange towards a person who dresses up a pet. I kinda' feel they at least have one foot in reality, knowing it's an animal.

Oh my God! I am flabbergasted. I didnt think the dolls were going to be soo life like and at the same time people are going nuts over them..Then again there were quite a few in that video that were creeped out as well. I guess I just dont understand why people would spend hundreds of dollars to buy something soo life like and not have the satisfaction of just having a real baby. I give the artist/ dollmaker kudos for doing such a wonderful job on them, but Wow! I just cant even explain in words..LOL...My jaw was on the floor the whole time I was watching that clip.

Me too, and this woman is no rocket scientist. Think what a real scientist could do if they set their mind to it. I just wonder how she got the training and information to create this. I don't like the idea of substituing a doll for a real relationship with a living, breathing human.

Wow...amazing baby dolls huh!I guess in every woman's heart, there is a mother .But couple's trying to substitute their childless state of a family life would be bizaare for me.They need to adopt rather than buying dolls such as this.Got two beautiful boys,eldest is my own blood but the second is my hubby and I adopted son.When I saw the videolink of your discussion cdblankink, I felt sadness for people buying it to substitute it for their situation.But like the fact of life, not all could be a mother. I am overwhelmed seeing the video too, realizing how great life is to me sharing life goodness itself for an real baby.Funny, you know, after seeing the video I went back to my baby's crib and kissed him.He moved abit in his sleep, felt his breathing and thought, life is good, God gave ne a gift to enjoy all the pleasant reactions of having a real baby. On the other hand, I think a reborn baby would be a great tool for educational purposes in school.But most of all, a sort of collection.I would like to buy one and give it as a gift to my 6 years old niece.She loves doll, and she would be delighted to have such. How much do you think it cost?

I haven't a clue about the cost, and yes, you are fortunate to have real children. It just seemed so sad to me when I watched it. But some of the people seemed fully aware that it was just a doll, they just enjoyed the attention. Which kinda' makes me wonder about people. Like, I've known a woman who keeps having babies just because of the way people treat her and the attention it brings. Sounds like a self-esteem problem to me, and no reason to have a child. But I think it could be a good educational tool.

It did seem a bit bizarre...but I can think of some situations where it could be justified or at least somewhat understandable. Maybe those dolls should be made widely available in high schools too, might do some good there.

You know, I hadn't thought of that. Excellent point. A little bit of real life training
