The fake reborn babies, featured earlier on Trend Hunter, are causing dangerous mix-ups.

It was a situation waiting to happen. The Reborn Baby dolls are so realistic, it was only a matter of time before they cause a major panic in a case of mistaken identity. The Courier Mail (Australia) reported that police smashed the window of a parked car in Queensland after being alerted to what looked like an unconscious baby in the back. People were fooled because the doll is very lifelike. The baby doll's owner was reported to be “non-plussed and apologetic.”

Although it had a “happy" ending, this incident shows that Reborn Baby Doll owners should be aware of possible situations like this. The police have better things to do like rescuing real people.
