Dolls can be spooky without the frills, but reborn babies are so realistic you'll think that they're going to start moving or crying at any given moment.
Many of us have played with dolls that have very basic, if not cartoon-like features. And let's be honest, they were terrifying! As if Chucky didn't put the fear of dolls in us, others started cropping up (Annabelle, anyone?). Dolls can be spooky without the frills, but reborn babies are so realistic you'll think that they're going to start moving or crying in any given moment. The trend began in the early 90s when people began asking for dolls with realistic features. These reborn babies are so real, they're going to leave you feeling rather uncomfortable.
