Child Angels dolls owners worship and treat them as human infants by cradling, feeding and dressing up them up. Dolls cost from 2,000 Thai baht (55.65 US dollar or 51.47 euro) to 20,000 Thai baht (556.5 US dollar or 514.84 euro). The trend has even prompted Thai Smile Air to allow passengers to buy tickets for their Child Angels dolls, agreeing to serve them onboard drinks and food and several restaurants in Bangkok have announced they will serve children's meals to the dolls.
