At the baby factory

"Nearby were unpainted heads with staring eyeless sockets. And down on the desk beside them were their missing multicolored eyes."
This is how Edit International describes the workstation of Marco and Anna Valente, a Brazilian couple who live in South Florida producing what are known as reborn dolls-lifelike dolls for which a cult following exists.
The realistic qualities of the dolls draw couples that have lost or cannot have children, and even empty nesters. Many owners treat the dolls as if they were alive.
"'These dolls are a great substitute,'" Valente told Edit International.
The dolls are so lifelike, Adelaidenow.com writes, that "they have resulted in passers-by breaking car windows on hot days amid fears they are real and could be in danger."
