By their very nature, these extremely realistic dolls have become highly sought after for their intrinsic value and their characteristics. Their similarity in human features and in human size has also been responsible for the drive to collect them. A majority of the Ashton Drake Dolls that are sold online are marketed as toys not meant for small children. They are designed to be displayed, not played with. Furthermore, many of these dolls are marketed as dolls 'for the child in you,' and many of the websites that feature these dolls have an outlet where dolls are sold in a manner congruent to a hospital discharging a newborn baby. The entire buying experience is based on birthing experience. Buyers are the parents, and once a doll is selected, he or she is discharged as if being released from the hospital. This is just one of the many instances in which the toy creator and the toy buyer interact in a creative experience that rivals few others. Almost all of the Ashton Drake Dolls are created based on certain themes, and they are marketed with those themes in mind. One of the theme-based collections called Tiny Miracles features Emmy, a very realistic-looking baby girl doll that has become one of Ashton Drake's most popular products. While many traditional baby dolls are made of plastic, fiber, or wood, the Ashton Drake Dolls are well-known for trademark materials that give their dolls and their other products, including Teddy Bears, jewelry, Figurines, and Ornaments real-life characteristics and feel. Many buyers and collectors feel that Ashton Drake is one of the premiere manufacturers of dolls and Teddy Bears. The Aston Drake Dolls are carefully carved out of the trademarked-material Real-Touch Vinyl Skin; the hair is micro-rooted; and, the fingernails and toenails are hand-painted to further contribute to the life-like look. Trying to tell the difference between real and fabricated eyelashes is even difficult.
