Open Mouth
By Nurture Reborns

20 inches (50.8 centimeters)

Any of my dolls can be either boy or girl. Please let me know at time of order.

Hello and welcome to Nurture Reborns. My name is Barb and I am the artist behind this sweet baby boy. I loved working on this Realborn Sleeping Charles sculpt. Hunter is 6 pounds and about 20" long. Much time and love went into reborning him and I am very pleased with the results. I am confident that you will adore him as well! He is waiting for your arms to hold him. He comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate has a picture of the real baby and actual footprints, as well as a place for you to write birth details about your baby (weight, length, etc).

Hunter is a Realborn® which is a Real Baby Replica, created directly from computer photometric scans of a real newborn baby.
Virtually every sweet baby fold, wrinkle and crease of the head, ears, eyes, nose, fingers, feet, and toes are captured with this technology. Then small details are carefully checked to assure the detail will transfer over beautifully into the vinyl. Then a 3D prototype print is created using one of the highest resolution 3D printers on the market today. From the 3d prototype print, the molds for the most perfect reborn artists' canvas (the Realborn® vinyl doll parts) are created.

Hunter's realistic newborn skin tone was achieved using permanent Genesis heat set paints in many, ultra-thin layers. Each translucent layer of paint was permanently heat set to give him the beautiful "living skin" that he now has. Much time and care was given to capture the perfect coloring, veining, mottling, shading and blushing of newborn baby. His body is made of soft doe suede.

You will see that no detail was ignored. Hunter has finely painted eyebrows. His lips have been tinted with several layers to achieve the natural coloring of a real baby and then have been sealed with a sheer sealant as have his toes and fingernails. You will see that great care was taken in the painting of his hair. You will notice that his scalp was painted with layers the same detail as all his features, with light veining and mottling for added realism.

Hunter has soft vinyl full arms & legs so he can wear almost anything newborn clothes you would like to put h. He has been weighted with small polished glass beads, which gives the most natural feel and polyester fill to give him the weight and feel of a real sized baby. He will cuddle perfectly in your arms or lay her head on your shoulder just like a real baby. You can't help but rock back and forth when you hold him.

I have crafted Hunter's mouth open so he can take a regular pacifier & a faux baby bottle. His mouth is backed by a dark piece of felt that gives her a more realistic look. The felt is adhered with permanent adhesive. Now there are more options for you with your baby. So many more poses with the pacifier & baby bottle. (I have included the both these items with your baby. It is not recommended that you leave the pacifier or bottle in baby's mouth for any length of time). A gentle squeeze of the cheeks or pushing in the bottom lip will open the mouth (depending on the sculpt). The inside of his lips are uneven due to crafting the lips open but this does not show when mouth is closed or bottle/pacifier is inserted. (See photos). A care sheet is included with the baby & I am available to answer any questions.

Welcome to Nurture Reborns. I am a reborn artist from Wisconsin. Reborning has been a passion of mine for about six years. I use only quality products so my dolls have a realistic appearance and feel. I use Genesis Heat Set paints and small glass beads & poly pellets for fillers. I have sold my dolls to a worldwide prop company and have buyers in Europe, Japan & Canada. My reborns are created in a smoke-free environment. With every doll I make, I look forward to it's adoption to a good home. Please ask any questions before you purchase as there is a no return policy. I ship to the US & some other countries. USPS insured.
