As of 2015, Paradise Galleries and Madame Alexander are companies that specialize in making lifelike baby dolls. Both companies make their lifelike baby dolls look and feel like actual babies, giving them realistic facial features and baby-soft skin.
Paradise Galleries employs sculptors and designers from all over the world to create its lifelike baby dolls. It claims its dolls are made of the finest vinyl, come with expertly sewn clothing and feature heartwarming facial expressions. Only some of its baby dolls are anatomically correct. Paradise Galleries either makes its baby dolls out of its exclusive GentleTouch vinyl, a soft material with lifelike details, or its Flex Touch vinyl, a silicone-based material that creates a soft, delicate texture and a realistic skin tone.
