Reborn Dolls and Doll Therapy

Reborn Dolls have gained much popularity. These dolls look and sometimes feel like real babies and or toddlers. Often times people purchase these dolls to cope with the loss of a loved one, to deal with being an empty nesters,  help to ease the pain of losing a child or provide comfort to a woman who can't birth a child. The reasons may vary but these dolls serve a purpose.

Statistics show that Doll Therapy or "Cuddle Therapy assist patients with Alzheimers. Interacting with dolls help to ease anxiety and bring joy to those who suffer from dementia.

Whatever the reason, it is a fact Dolls can help the Young and the Season individual become Happy and that's important for all human kind.
