VILE perverts are paying £6,000 to sneak sex dolls that look like children into the UK to fulfil their sick desires.
A probe found 153 paedos were caught importing the realistic models from Japan.
It was also discovered sellers gave the dolls names such as Petite Nano, CandyGirl and Pettite Jewel.
Some of the life-like figures were designed to look like adults, but many stand at just 4ft and are dressed in school uniforms.
Owning child sex dolls is legal under UK law, but importers can face jail time.
Tokyo manufacturer Orient Industries bragged of record numbers of Brits who are spending thousands on the creepy models.
Manager Junpei Oguchi positioned the dolls in provocative poses in his facotry and claimed clients “enjoyed design them”.
He told The Daily Mirror Online: “Many people buy them for companionship, just looking. They enjoy dressing them.”
But child protection charity the NSPCC said sickos only had one thing in mind when buying the “toys”.
Almundena Lara, head of policy at the organisation, said: “These sinister dolls look like children and their purpose is to simulate sex.
“Yet in England and Wales, it’s not a crime to make, sell or own them. And while it’s legal to import an obscene or indecent item, a loophole means defendants can argue their sex doll is not obscene – that it’s just bizarre.”
