Meet Baby #23
born April 12, 2014 at 4:06 pm.
5 lbs., 7 oz.            18 in.

Lainey is a custom-ordered baby. He lives in Ontario.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Lainey is a one-of-a-kind work of art.

  Lainey was lovingly created from Marissa May's "Lainey" sculpt.

To achieve his baby complexion, multiple layers of
Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked
to ensure that his baby skin will retain its beautiful detail forever.

Subtle veins, mottled newborn skin, blushing, and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.

His silky soft Dark Brown mohair was micro-rooted by hand,
in a natural growth pattern, one or two strands at a time, with a
fine gauge needle, sealed from inside with waterproof glue, then cut and styled.

Lainey has beautiful Cobalt Blue eyes with amazingly realistic detail.
Long dark brown lashes were hand-applied, and his 3-dimensional eyebrows
were painted on with a superfine brush. His skin and brows were then
texturized for incredible realism.

Lainey's little limbs, head, and body are weighted with tiny glass beads
and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester

fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give him the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn.

Moist looking lips complete with little spit bubbles, a hint of baby tears,
a moist nose, and tiny manicured fingernails and toenails
add to the realism of this little boy.

His little nose has been opened, shaded for depth, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". He has a magnet behind
his mouth so he can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Lainey bears the artist's signature.
He traveled home with his birth certificate signed by the artist,
a beautiful layette, and his favorite little stuffed animal.
