Want a newborn but don't desire the stretch marks and fat ass it takes to get one? Perhaps you should indulge in the creepiest toy this side of TeleTubbies. Destiny's Reborn Babies are probably the most disturbing new "thing" on the market I've ever seen. Go ahead, look at the web-site. These are not real babies. The weirdest thing is, I think they're intended more for adults than children. But WHY? I guess maybe if you're really old and miss the company of a newborn in your house? Or maybe they're for 27 year-old blogging wannabe Mom's that aren't ready for a baby yet. Maybe they're good practice for if your baby is mute? I've run all the possible reasons, and haven't found a good one yet.
On the flip side, they are very life-like and extremely cute. But hand-on-the-Bible, I could not go to bed at night with one of these suckers in my house. I would have nightmares beyond which the normal human mind can comprehend. Their eyes look real. And it appears to me that you can rearrange them on their side, their back or whatever position strikes your fancy. I can't help but picture a housewife buying one of these babies unbeknownst to her husband. Can't you just see the husband coming home from work only to find a crib and blankets where his favorite recliner used to reside? Now that would be a sight I'd pay money to see.
