Not everyone is enamored with reborn dolls. The realism can rub some the wrong way.
“There are some people who hate them or don't like them or find them disturbing,” Jonderko said. It’s the “uncanny valley” concept that we often see with robots: As an artificial being becomes more like a human, it can turn people off.
Smolinska has also seen the dolls make people uncomfortable, but she and Jonderko said the majority of their experiences have been positive.
“Most of the people are really fascinated,” Jonderko said. “They are not reacting like: ’Oh my God, what is this? This is horrible.’ But they are fascinated with how precise they look. They were fooled. They thought it was a real child.”
