“If you really try to unpack why a childless woman, particularly one who has something that looks like a fake baby, is threatening, then we start to get to what we see as the role of women: a successful woman is a successful mother,” she says.
St Hilaire points out that, of the dozens of reborn collectors that she’s surveyed worldwide, none think of their Reborn dolls as “real” babies. (And, contrary to what many assume about collectors, she estimates that half of them already have children of their own.) Instead, St Hilaire has observed that the Reborn dolls tend to satisfy an imaginative itch in collectors, whether they’re making reborns from kits and online tutorials or merely choosing how to dress them. In her view, the Reborn dolls aren’t child substitutes so much as companionate props in something like a large-scale roleplaying game.
