Believable Babies' reborn dolls are quite real looking. They are hand made one by one. Each baby takes between 25 to 40 hours to create and incorporates quality materials to bring them to life. Oil-based paints applied in 11 layers, heat set, and cooled between each layer; soft doe suede body; mohair for hair and lashes, which is micro rooted with a fine felting needle; and micro glass beads for weighting the head and bottom for the feel of a real baby. In the final stages of the process, a scented wafer is folded into the fiber fill of the body for that freshly-bathed baby smell. She is unisex and can be made a boy just by changing her clothes. These babies range in length from 18" - 20" and the weight is around 4-5 lbs for the Alzheimer's community.
