  1. #1 Frantic rescue effort saves doll, not baby

    FRANTIC police smashed a window to rescue a seemingly unconscious baby from a locked vehicle in Queensland last week only to find it was an extremely lifelike doll.

    The embarrassing mistake, made in regional Gympie, is not an isolated incident and passionate creator of the "reborn" baby dolls Vynette Cernik knows just how easily they can be mistaken for the real thing.

    Ms Cernik said last week's case of mistaken identity mirrored a similar incident in the US when the window of a new Hummer was broken by police trying to rescue a "baby" that turned out to be a doll belonging to the owner's wife.

    Selling for up to $1000, the painstakingly hand-painted dolls were so lifelike with eyelashes, fingernails, milk spots and wispy hair that they were constantly fooling people, Ms Cernik said.

    That picture of the "baby" is kind of creepy. It looks like a real infant. WOW..

    Why would a grown woman drag a baby doll around with her anyway?

    It really does. It has that "Yoda" look that real babies have.

    "He said when the car's owners were eventually found they were "nonplussed and apologetic"."

    I can understand being nonplused, but I'd be damned if I was "apologetic" if someone broke my car window. I'd expect to be on the receiving end of the apology. And on the receiving end of some repair money, too.

    Here's the site for the lady that makes the dolls. Creepy! It's called "Reborning".

    The other ones that creep me out are the ones that look like toddlers, hiding their faces like they're standing in the corner or something.

    The dolls can even come with umbilical cords, cord clamps and their own birth certificates.

    You know what this kind of shit leads to right?

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    OMG! My mom actually had one of those. It had Tristan's face! It freaked me out. She finally put it away after I complained enough.
