A man who creates child-like sex dolls for paedophiles has called himself an ‘artist’ as custom officials crackdown on shipments being imported into Australia.
Up to 18 consignments of life-size dolls – that are sold by Japanese company Trottla – have been seized by the border force officials since 2013, Fairfax Media reported.
The anatomically-correct rubber dolls sent from overseas have been destroyed or used for further investigation, an Australian Federal Police spokeswoman said.

The dolls, which resemble children as young as five, are sold to paedophiles globally
The sexualised dolls, which resemble children as young as five, are sold via the Japanese website to paedophiles across the globe.
Trottla founder Shin Takagi, a self-confessed paedophile, has defended his range of dolls, telling Fairfax Media: ‘I am an artist’.
A Department of Immigration and Border Protection spokeswoman said owning a child-like doll was deemed a child exploitation offence.
‘The Australian Border Force works closely with the AFP and state police agencies to target and seize this objectionable material at the border, and bring before the courts those that seek to possess or are in possession of a child sex doll,’ she said.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and Australian Federal Police for comment.
Earlier this year, Mr Takagi claimed the dolls act as a substitute to satisfy the needs of paedophiles so they don’t commit crime against real children.
‘I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire,’ he told the Atlantic.

More than 60,000 people signed a petition this year to ban the sale of the child-like dolls
More than 60,000 Australians signed a petition this year to ban the sale and import of ‘these sickening aids for paedophiles’.
The dolls that appear on the Japanese website are dressed in lace or leather lingerie, sometimes completely naked.
Many of the imitation girls are sprawled out on a bed or laid in other provocative positions, often with child-like props like a school uniform and backpack.
Some girls are smiling while others are made to appear as if they crying or in pain, which Mr Takagi stating the dolls are made in a ‘variety of expressions to fulfill a variety of client needs’.
