Kathy Cadle Makes Baby Dolls That Look Too Realistic
Meet Kathy Cadle, an extremely talented grandmother from Sheffield Lack, Ohio, who spends her days painting and selling baby dolls that are uncannily realistic.
Her company is called Bunny Bundles Reborns, and her dolls are often used as therapeutic tools for patients suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia.
As Metro reports, the doll-making is a family tradition, passed down to Kathy and her sister by their mother.
The amazing dolls are made of vinyl, then painted, and they look like this:
The dolls are so realistic, in fact, she had the police called to her house because people thought she was literally selling babies.
Sergeant Frank Goscewski took the matter very seriously and wouldn't leave until Kathy proved she wasn't selling humans.
She gave the sergeant one of her dolls to inspect, and he left soon after. But she then found out the police went and questioned all her friends, just to be sure.
Now, you might think, "Wow, these cops need to relax," but when it comes to even the slimmest chance of baby-selling, I'm pretty sure we want our cops to be the opposite of relaxed.
These realistic dolls provide many people in nursing homes much-needed comfort. They're effective therapeutic tools for people who really need help.
But, putting how amazing they are aside for a moment, the pictures of these dolls also haunt my dreams.
They're especially upsetting when detached from their bodies.
Because, I mean, they look like real babies -- but decapitated.
I don't like this.
OK, sorry, sorry.
Really, these dolls are awesome and help people a lot, and are so amazingly made, and I'm sorry I talked about how terrifying they are when they don't have bodies attached to them.
But also, WTF.
I'm a terrible person.
