How can I purchase a silicone baby?

My dolls are all handmade one at a time and take a lot of time to create. I sell each one individually once it is completed. I do not take custom orders or pre-orders. Most of my dolls are sold here on my website, occasionally a doll will be listed for sale on eBay. If you are interested in purchasing one of my dolls, I recommend signing up for my newsletter to receive an email notice whenever I have a new baby available.

 

What is the cost of a silicone baby?

The price of each silicone baby doll varies greatly depending on the size of the doll, the features of the doll, and how complicated the doll is to make. When I have a doll available, I will post details about the doll, including price and layaway information (if layaway is available for that doll).

 

Do you have a price list?

Each one of my dolls is individually made and individually priced. I do not have a list of prices for my dolls. Price is provided for each doll when it is available for sale.

 

Do you ship internationally?

Yes I do ship internationally, but the buyer is responsible for all customs charges and taxes charged by their country. International shipping is typically 6 to 10 business days to most countries. You can choose to upgrade your shipping upon request. Occasionally shipping can be delayed by Customs, especially near the holidays.

 

Do you make Custom Dolls or Portrait Dolls?

No, I do not take custom doll orders or custom portrait doll orders. I do not have time to accommodate all of the custom requests I receive. I sell my dolls only when they are completed and ready to ship.

 

What payment methods do you accept?

I use PayPal to process my orders, however you do not need to have a PayPal account to purchase. You can also use a debit or credit card to purchase dolls on my website.

 

Do you accept layaway?

I prefer payment in full, but I do sometimes allow layaway on my larger dolls. If layaway is an option, it will be written on the doll's purchasing page. My standard layaway is 3 months long with a 25% deposit and monthly payments made toward the balance. The doll will not ship until the entire amount has been paid in full.

 

Do you offer repair or re-matting services?

I stand by my work, and if there is a defect in a doll when a collector receives it, I will fix it for the first owner of the doll if I am contacted within a week of receipt and the doll has not been obviously damaged by the collector. If the doll has been damaged due to rough handling or alterations, I will not repair the doll. I have no control over the way collectors use or handle their dolls and am not responsible for dolls bought on the secondary market. I also do not offer repairs for other artists' work.

 

How can I find out about available babies?

You can see my available silicone dolls on my Available Babies page here on my website. I also usually write what's coming up next on my website as well. To be notified when a new baby is available, you can sign up for the newsletter to receive an email when I have a new silicone baby available for purchase.

 

Will you remake a sold out doll?

When I paint a doll produced by another artist, I usually only paint one. When it is a doll I have produced, I will usually paint and sell a few from the edition, but once the edition is sold out I will not make any more.

 

How long does it take to receive a response to my email?

Usually 1 to 3 days. I receive a LOT of emails every day and I want to respond to each one individually to keep in contact with my collectors, however if I were to respond right away to all of my messages, I would be left with very little time to make dolls. I typically set aside time to respond to all emails and Facebook messages 2 or 3 times a week.
