Announcing Michael Joseph

Born: January 4, 2012

at 10:08 am

Weight: 7 lbs 4 ozs

Length: 20"

This sweet baby boy is the ''Sugar'' sculpt by Donna Rubert. He has 3/4 arms and legs and a luscious doe-suede body. He is truly one-of-a-kind and there will never be another baby like him! If you've fallen in love, do not let this baby slip through your fingers. He is a wonderfully realistic reborn baby doll and will bring many hours of cuddling and holding.

He is absolutely an heirloom doll.

He was a pleasure to reborn, and will bring so much happiness and light into a special mommy's days! He was tenderly brought to ''life'' by master artisan Margaret McGehee. She has many years of artistic experience and has brought her talent to this intriguing new art of Reborn Dolls. She has five years of experience reborning these beautiful treasures!

Each Calla® Reborn Baby is painted by hand with multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints. The paints are heat set to ensure an heirloom quality, without fading, chipping, cracking or peeling. The process of painting layer after layer gives the baby a realistically life-like skin tone. There is subtle veining, slight discolorations and baby mottling on his entire body.

His fingernails and toenails are delicately tipped in a natural white that doesn't look fake or over-done. They are sealed with a soft finish so they will never chip. They have a perfect trimmed newborn look.

Michael's hair is 100% professionally processed, treated and purchased salon-grade natural human hair. This is the same hair that is used for hair extensions.  It has been micro-rooted by hand to give a look of truly real hair growth. The hair has been sealed with a waterproof sealent inside his head so you can gently comb, brush, and wet baby's hair. His hair is varying shades of blonde to accentuate the realism of human hair. 

Many people are allergic to Mohair, which is animal hair, the most commonly used hair in reborn babies.  With human hair, there will be no allergic reaction!

His lips have been painted and sealed with a special sealer to give them a moist look that adds to the realism of this remarkable reborn baby. Michael has tiny capillaries painted onto his cheeks, something all babies have! His barely-there eyebrows have been painted one hair at a time to give the look of a true newborn.

Michael's body is a super soft doe-suede that is fabulous to hold. His arms and legs are weighted with tiny glass beads to give him a life-like weight. His body is filled with poly fiberfill and poly pellets to give him an unbelievably real feel to his little bottom. He is so wonderful to cuddle and squeeze! It really feels like you are holding a real baby! He has a soft baby powder scent that makes him smell just like a new baby. His bottom is signed by master artisan Margaret McGehee. He wears size 0-3 month size baby clothing.

His head is weighted with poly pellets to give it a heavier feel, and you will have to support his head just like a real baby when you hold him. His head will flop if you don't hold it, just as a newborn's head does.
