Jacki Dunkley and Sally Rumsey - Reborn Artists

Nanna Barbs Nursery and Dream Child Nursery

Hi. I am Jax, the proud owner of Nanna Barbs Nursery. 

I was never really interested in dolls as a child until, many years later, as a wife and Mum to two sons, (again no dolls), and Co-owner of a soft furnishing company, I saw ‘My Fake Baby’ documentary on TV and I thought, wow, it looks so real I would love to do that. After obtaining supplies off a well-known internet site the journey began.

I saw THE KIT! It was Cianne, sculpted by Romie Strydom and I just had to have it. My Mum bought me the kit for my birthday shortly before she died hence; Nanna Barbs Nursery was born; named after my very special Mum and I still have Cianne to this day. 

The rest is history as they say.

I have been reborning now for over 10 years and I am still loving and learning whilst striving for the ultimate realism in my babies and toddlers.

As a professional seamstress I take immense pleasure in designing and sewing bespoke outfits for them and I also enjoy knitting and crocheting baby garments too.

Custom orders undertaken, please message me on nannabarbsnursery facebook. Many thanks for looking at my babies.

I am Sally, sole artist at the Dream Child Nursery

I began my reborning journey almost 13 years ago after seeing examples of the art in my early eBay explorations.

The beauty and realism of those early babies blew my mind away, and I knew I had to learn more, and finally try for myself.

The rest is history. Over 200 babies later, and many, many, happy reborn mummies, I know this is one of the most satisfying hobbies I have ever had. I love every day with my paints and brushes, and seeing the most life like baby I can create emerge out of a blank vinyl kit, is not only totally absorbing, but every time it happens, is like a tiny miracle in my work room!

I do undertake  custom work and would be very happy to discuss custom orders via email or messenger.
