    Probably not, but I’m generally in the dolls = creepy camp, so I don’t have any regular dolls either.

    Hell no.  That’s one of the creepiest things I have seen in a long time.

    Interesting.  I personally wouldn’t buy one, but I’m amazed at how real they look, wow.

    I just watched a segment of a TV show regarding this exact same subject.  The women featured were women whom treated these dolls as if they were their very own child – some ‘stay-at-home mom’s’ to what they truly believe were their infants.  Most had made a connection with these in such a profound way, which I could not pretend to understand.  It actually broke my heart watching them, because you could see that they were distraught over the inability to ever have children, etc, and so filled that void with life-like dolls. 

    I could say today that it is not anything I would personally buy, but who knows what I would think/do if I were unable to have the one thing I have wanted all my life, and to what degree I would fill that void…

    But yes, although they look ‘real’, dolls in general creep me out ;(

    @DeathByDesign:  Personally, no.  I think they are a bit odd.  

    I just watched an episode of Taboo about these dolls though.  The two women featured were unable to have children of their own.  They were insanely attached to their dolls and even took them out in public in strollers, Ergo carriers, etc.  I find it extremely odd.  However, I feel like I am being really judgmental.  They helped the women on the show cope with their sorrow over not being able to have children and it is harmless.  I think I am just more of the “get a puppy” mindset.

    @OUgal0004:   I saw a TV show about that, too.  I also saw a show about some people, mostly men, who purchase “adult female” dolls like that (very realistic looking) as “companions” or “girlfriends.”  There’s something kinda disturbing about that, idk.  The cost was sometimes in the thousands of dollars.

    No way, those things are creepy…but I’m in the “most dolls are creepy” camp.

    Like SaphireSun, I am not a doll person. 

    I tend to be a little freaked out by their realism, but I can see how they could fill a void for some women, especially if they faced infertility or a loss.

    Oh wow, no way. I think a doll should clearly look like a doll. I would totally be one of those people smashing a car window to rescue this thing.

    This is really weird and creepy to me, but I have a phobia of dolls… like really… I hate them and can’t stand to be in the same room with them. I would have no qualms with burning this thing.
