Hi Faceless39. I guess it depends on the individual. If it helps them in a positive way then it matters not what others think. Thank you.

Yes, I agree with your answer, especially being you have firsthand experience. I did not know of such dolls. They would be disturbing to me for the very reasons you've stated. I don't know that I could bring myself to hold one for thinking it dead.
Hi Kylyssa. I already have an opinion on these dolls. Psychologists have already stated their opinions in many articles about it. I was just curious what others think about the dolls. Thanks for your answer.
My opinions are that psychologists will be the ones to ask after a lot more time has passed and a lot more data gathered and that I, personally, find the dolls disturbing. I'm sorry those weren't the opinions you wanted.
And I appreciate your opinion and contribution to the subject, Kylyssa. This is why I asked the question - for opinions. I do not want any particular opinion, just anybody's and any opinion. I think you brought up some good points.

I agree on it not being healthy for an extended time. I personally believe it could prevent or drastically delay some people from going through the grieving process.

I have many dolls and my favorite is one about the size of a newborn. I dress her in my daughter's baby clothes. Thanks for your reply, Jackie.
