This just may be my most life-changing post yet, so pay attention! If you saw Lars and the Real Girl, or even head of it, then you need to read the following pressing information. Lars was based on the documentary Guys and Dolls, which followed three men and their relationships with their Real Dolls. For those who don't know, Real Dolls are the ultimate blow-up doll: tailor made with physical specifications of your choice, Real Dolls can fulfill your every fantasy, including basic companionship, as seen in the docu. It's fascinating and disturbing at the same time, but once you've watched, make sure you Google the Real Doll website and check out the FAQ section. The inquiries' absurdity brings the LOL's and the names and looks of each doll, including male forms, are priceless (actually, the dolls thousands of dollars). Can't get enough of the creepiness? The doll craze expands with Re-borns: baby dolls made to look as unique and fresh-out-of-the-oven as real babies. Similar to Guys and Dolls, My Fake Baby: Living Doll introduces us to re-born 'parents' and a re-born doll artist. Though most owners are adults who are unable to conceive, suffered the loss of a child, or simply want a baby without the responsibility, my friend who intro'd me to the re-born world has also seen young girls with these dolls, being used as a high-end toy.
