As of 2015, Paradise Galleries and Madame Alexander's Newborn Nursery are brands of realistic baby dolls. The baby dolls from both brands have realistic facial features and baby-soft skin.
Paradise Galleries makes its realistic baby dolls out of GentleTouch vinyl, a soft material with lifelike details, as well as Flex-Touch vinyl, a silicone-based material that creates a soft, delicate texture and a realistic skin tone. All of the dolls' parts are handcrafted by expert doll makers and their lifelike facial details are hand-painted by artists. The sizes of the babies vary depending on the designer, but they can generally fit into real baby clothes.
