Some dolls come with a variety of accessories such as birth certificates, gift boxes, plush toys, pacifiers, and different outfits. Additionally, it's worth noting the size of the doll, especially if you plan on buying additional clothing. While some reborn dolls can wear real newborn clothing, others may require custom-made outfits.

Another aspect to consider is the type of reborn doll that suits your needs. These dolls cater to various age groups and purposes. Some are designed as toys, ideal for children of different ages. Others are targeted towards adults and are more suitable as collectibles, often displayed on shelves due to their fragility, high level of realism, and higher price points.

The brand of the doll is another factor you might want to consider. Certain brands have a reputation for using higher-quality materials and craftsmanship. However, rest assured that the dolls we recommend have been carefully selected based on excellent customer reviews, ensuring that they meet the highest standards of quality and satisfaction.

Here are the steps on how to make reborn dolls for beginners:

  1. Choose a reborn kit. There are many different reborn kits available online and in craft stores. Choose a kit that is the right size and style for you.
  2. Prepare the doll. Once you have chosen a kit, you will need to prepare the doll. This includes removing the factory paint and sanding the doll to create a smooth surface.
  3. Paint the doll. Once the doll is prepared, you can begin painting. Use a variety of colors to create a realistic skin tone. You can also add details such as freckles, birthmarks, and veins.
  4. Root the hair. Once the paint is dry, you can root the hair. This is a process of inserting individual strands of hair into the doll's scalp. There are many different ways to root hair, so you may want to watch some tutorials before you begin.
  5. Add the eyes. Once the hair is rooted, you can add the eyes. Reborn dolls typically have glass eyes, but you can also use plastic eyes.
