Reborn baby dolls are a highly collectible niche within the doll-making industry. They have found a broad audience and fan base on the internet thanks to dedicated Facebook groups, fan clubs, and organizations.
When looking for a completed reborn doll, you’ll want to find qualified, professional artists with experience in the field. These artists typically sell in online stores, at conventions or other hobby conferences, and on collectible sites like eBay, auction houses, and museum shops. They may also sell their dolls in exclusive collections, like the Paradise Galleries One of a Kind Dolls Collection.
Prices for Reborn Dolls
Prices for reborn dolls will vary widely depending on the amount of craftsmanship in the finished doll, how well-known the reborn artist is, and the demand for that particular doll.
Standard prices range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Finding a Mass Manufactured Doll for Reborning
Another option for buying a reborn doll is to buy a mass manufactured doll and use it as the base for your reborning process. This is the most DIY and labor-intensive option out there, but top of the line dolls from companies like Paradise Galleries, Ashton-Drake Galleries, Apple Valley, Bountiful Baby, and Secrist Dolls make the process easy because the manufactured dolls already have lifelike features and are molded to look as realistic as possible.
We encourage you to do research in Facebook groups and other hobby sites to find the perfect reborn artist or mass manufactured doll. Resources like Doll Reader Magazine and Art Doll Quarterly offer resources for finding, pricing, and researching different buying options for reborn baby dolls. Research is key to making an informed decision and purchasing the best reborn doll for your preferences and your budget.
