My nearly 5 yo has an obsession with reborn babies, she would love one for Christmas. Does anyone know anywhere I can buy a beautiful baby that doesn't cost the earth? Xx

I bought my two Berenguer dolls from eBay (about 10 yrs ago now mind) for £40 & £45. These are apparently the dolls that are used to make the reborns, so already quite life like. I bought lots of newborn baby clothes rather than doll clothes which helped make them even more realistic. I have no clue how to upload a photo sorry so can't show you what they looked like.

I bought small ones (twins) off eBay and whilst they weren't actually reborn full designer ones they were smaller dolls that had been refilled and painted and added eyelashes etc so were perfect for dd two years ago. It was someone's nursery on eBay iirc.
I wouldn't pay tonnes for a full one as they are big to handle and difficult for wee ones.

I got DDs from the Bradford exchange company, think it was £100 but she loves her head to noise etc, there was cheaper options on the website. At the time (2 years ago ) it was the cheapest I could find for the size etc

Thanks everyone. She had the newborn berengeur doll last year and a tiny treasure. I don't mind spending £100 if it's good quality. Xx

Interested in this as well. I got dd the rub a dub dub doll by Aston Drake last year cause she wanted washable reborn, which doesn't exist! This year she still wants a reborn! So it doesn't have to be washable but she wants it real like! I am looking for a lifelike doll, floppy head, soft body etc and I don't mind paying 100£ But it's hard to tell what they are really like online. It that little miss princess floppy like a " real doll"?

My little cousin Chloe has two Mary shortle dolls for sale, My aunties paid £375 for one and £400 for the other. They have been so well looked after and treated like real babies there's not a mark on them she's just outgrown them smile if your interested you could send me a message through WhatsApp I think she wanted £150 each for them x

The Bradford Exchange - They do beautiful dolls, their customer service is great and the prices are very good. My DD loves hers

There's a boy and a girl with soft bodies and floppy heads, personally I think they are scarily real she's actually had people pull her saying should you really be holding a baby like that at your age in the past grin it's such a good price for something that really does cost the world! X
