Aussie company creates life-like Prince George doll

AN AUSTRALIAN company is cashing in on the recent royal baby hysteria, hand-crafting a human-like Prince George doll.

The new company, Celebrity Dollhouse, is making its debut on to the doll scene with the royal replica.

The company's creative director, Adriana de Simone, began crafting the Prince George replica a week ago and will unveil the finished baby on Friday.

The mother-of-three said her hobby, of making human-like dolls, celebrates new life.

"The birth of Prince George was probably the biggest celebration of a newborn that most people are likely to see in their lifetime," she said.

"I'm incredibly excited to celebrate the prince's arrival on the planet with this human-like, detailed replica that I hope will preserve the those many positive things associate with babies, as a symbol of new life."

The company said they will reinvest most of the profits in to local creative industries and donate a percentage of sales to children's charities.

Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton welcomed their first child, Prince George of Cambridge, on July 22. He is third in line to the throne.
