This precious little boy came into the nursery as "Justin" by Kimberli Durden. Made of Gentle Touch Vinyl the mold to start out with is very realistic and putting him through the reborn process enhances that realism even more.  With delicate handling and extra special care this little baby has been transformed into a treasured little OOAK "Cream Puff Babies Nursery" baby boy.

It's very difficult to describe each step that goes into creating a "Cream Puff Baby" as in real life each baby’s skin tone is unique and different, several different techniques are used on each baby to achieve the desired skin complexion for that individual baby.  The vinyl is colored on outside to give little Justin the most realistic newborn "blotchy" tone complexion. This natural shade of coloring was created with Genesis heat set paints, stencil paints, & etc. that I’ve applied over multiple steps to achieve the true to life look.  Each baby is carefully hand painted until I have achieved the desired results for that individual baby.

I have micro-rooted little dark brown mohair eyelashes to accentuate his new life like look. His lips were color blended to a more natural tone and sealed so his mouth looks moist and wet.  I also applied tiny barely there little brush stroke eyebrows. Additionally, his little nose was carefully opened. Notice the newborn like shades of blues and greens on his face to really bring out his realistic look.

Every little fold and wrinkle has been attended to with blushing and coloring.


Justin original  muslin cloth body that has been re-stuffed and weighted to give him a realistic feel.  The flexible body has been delicately weighted and stuffed with a combination of fluffy soft PolyFil and plastic pellets. This feature provides that realistic baby feel that’s just right for holding.



Justin’s little head & 1/4 hands/ arms & 3/4 legs/feet have also been weighted and gently stuffed with the same combination as his body.  His little head needs supporting just like a real baby’s head when you hold him. Justin can be posed and displayed in a variety of positions.


Justin has been given hand painted finger and toenails that have been sealed with a satin sealer to highlight the details of his tiny hands and feet.

Justin has micro-rooted baby soft, dark brown mohair.  Each little strand was rooted in the direction that his hair would naturally grow.  His hair was then trimmed and shaped to appear as realistic as a newborn baby’s hair does.

He has subtle veining throughout his hands/arms, legs/feet, forehead, & even on his little eyelids.

Justin is no longer considered a play doll, but a ”One of a Kind" collectible doll to be handed down from generation to generation. I have signed and dated him with his birth date on the back of his neck.
