Those who struggle or are unable to conceive have also been known to seek solace in a reborn doll.
The lifelike dolls also appeal to those with dementia as the dolls can trigger positive memories and even go some way to prevent agitation and anxiety.
There is also a demand for the dolls to plainly be collected as a hobby. One such example is the YouTube channel ran by a 15-year-old girl named Sophia who creates videos detailing ‘a day in the life’ of each of the dolls to her 52K subscribers.
She takes the dolls out shopping for clothes and gives each individual doll dedicated mealtimes and bath times.
