    Q: What shipping method is used and how much is shipping and handling?
    What shipping method is used and how much is shipping and handling?

    A: All Babes are shipped via the USPS, priority so the Babes are received within 4-8 days. Shipping and handling is $11.00 per Babe. If more than one Babe is ordered an additional $3.00 per additional Babe is required. I pay for insuring the Babe when mailing.

    I ship within the continental United States only including military addresses outside the continental United States. Some restrictions do apply to certain military addresses. I will contact you directly if a restriction applies to your order. The customer will be responsible for all shipping and handling fees outside the continental U.S.

    Q: What are the Babes made of?
    What are the Babes made of?

    A: The Babes are made of fabric, polyfill, two buttons and hair accessories.

    Q: Are the Babes washable?
    Are the Babes washable?

    A: The babes are NOT washable as the hair, shoes and accessories are glued on. The clothing may be removed - with effort. However, if a Babe becomes dirty, I believe it is a sign of a well loved doll and only adds to her character. A damp cloth will clean the Babe.

    Q: Do you make boy dolls?
    Do you make boy dolls?

    A: Yes, I do. I make Vincent, a black toddler w/a diaper; Mr. Gross, a pot-bellied elderly fellow who loves to fish; Private Timmy, a military private complete w/tattoo; Jeffrey, a groom, and sports figures as requested - always within reason. The hair for the male dolls is very labor intensive; therefore, all male dolls come with a hat and are priced slightly higher than the girls. I do not keep an inventory of male dolls, so they would be made by special order only.

    Q: Do you sell additional outfits for the Babes?
    Do you sell additional outfits for the Babes?

    A: Each Babe is hand-crafted individually. The final accessories are selected for each outfit; therefore, no additional outfits are sold. Each accessory is permanently secured to the doll.

    I have completed a special order where a second outfit was requested. The doll was completed with accessories that coordinated with each other. Second outfits are $30.00.

    The Babes are completed such that in some instances the outfits cannot be removed and in most others, it is very difficult. I think that once a doll looses it's clothing, they don't seemed to get redressed. Separation of Babe and clothing shortens the enjoyment of the doll.

    Q: Do you give discounts if more than one doll is purchased?
    Do you give discounts if more than one doll is purchased?

    A: Unfortunately, not. It takes 16-20 hours to complete each Babe.

    Q: What are the recommended ages to give a Babe?
    What are the recommended ages to give a Babe?

    A: There is no recommended age. I have found the Babes are welcomed at any age. I have sold a Babe as young as pre-birth and as old as 84 years young - both male and female recipients. The Babes are enjoyed at any age and make great room decorations.

    Q: Do you accept special orders?
    Do you accept special orders?

    A: Absolutely. I welcome special requests. All special orders must be prepaid as the Babe(s) will be created to meet your specifications. I am happy to oblige a customer any way I can.

    Q: Do you accommodate RUSH orders?
    Do you accommodate RUSH orders?

    A: Absolutely. Life is very unpredictable. Rush orders are subject to a $25 fee. Usually, a rush order means "drop everything and create the Babe now." I am usually very flexible and will work with the customer as best I can but want to be certain there is an understandable distinction between a special order and a rush order.

    Q: How well are the Babes constructed?
    How well are the Babes constructed?

    A: The Babes are made durable to last even for the most active child. They are made with the hopes of becoming a treasure for the recipient. The head and neck are sewn three times. The arms and legs are sewn three times. The eyes are put on with dental floss in an 18-count stitch. If would take a hard nasty tug to remove the eyes. The shoes/boots and socks are secured to the Babe. The ribbons on the sleeves are tied in knots so if the bow comes undone, the sleeve will still remain secured. The pony tail/pig tails are tied in six double knots. The hair ornaments are secured to lessen the likelihood of the hair coming undone.

    I have to transport Babes for craft shows and I want to make certain they arrive in tact. I once took a really sweet Babe to a show and did not secure her shoes and one was lost. She is still waiting to get new shoes. I don't want this to happen to the customers.

    Q: What if I change my mind and have to cancel my order?
    What if I change my mind and have to cancel my order?

    A: If the Babe is a special order, depending on where I am on the construction, a partial refund is possible. If I have created and completed a special Babe for you, there will be no refund.

    If the customer refuses the Babe at his/her end and is returned to me in the original unopened package, you will receive a refund less a 20% restocking fee.

    Q: Method of Payment
    How can I pay for my Babe?

    A: Acceptable methods of payment are: check, money order or direct withdrawal from you check or savings account on large orders. I have used Paypal but found them to be fast and free with my money. Also, I have had to wait up to six weeks for payment to be forwarded from Paypal and only after threat of legal action. I have not found either Paypal or Propay to be very "customer friendly."

    Q: What if I am not comfortable using a credit card online?
    What if I am not comfortable using a credit card online?

    A: You may pay by phone through your personal checking account or a certified check or check*. Please remember by paying through your checking account or certified check, your Babe will be held until the funds clear. I am happy to work with you as best I can just let me know.

    Other means of payment: lay-away.

    All checks are cashed through Money Tree.

    Q: Do you accept international orders?
    Do you accept international orders?

    A: Shipping outside the U.S.A. is extremely expensive but if you want a Babe I will be happy to ship to you. You will be charged the full shipping price to get the Babe of your choice to you.

    I reserve the right to refuse shipment of an order to certain areas of the world.

    Q: Size Appropriate
    Size Appropriate

    A: I used to make recommendations on the size of a Babe for the size/age of your child. I now believe any size Babe would be appropriate for a child.

    However, there are two yards of fabric in the pig tails on the 24" dolls head. When a small child with a height of 26.5", or less, carries the doll, generally the hair falls and more often than not drags on the ground; thus, causing wear and tear on the Babe.

    I have provided this information to ensure the longevity of the doll. I have watched little girls under the age of five carry a 24" Babe and it appears to be cumbersome for the child to manage with comfort. If the Babe is not a comfortable fit for the child, the child may loose interest in her Babe or damage to the Babe may occur.

    I do have as much concern for my Babes as for your little girl. The 22" Teri Ann Babe for the littler girls is a good fit. The hair is shorter and the size is more manageable.

    But any Babe you choose will be perfect for your loved one. But please consider the style of hair for a really good fit.

    Q: What does #479, 357, 522 ... mean?
    What does #479, 357, 522 ... mean?

    A: Each Babe is numbered on her the rear with stamped lips and the Babe number written on it. These numbers are the numbers given to the Babe.

    Q: Where do you get your patterns?
    Where do you get your patterns?

    A: The only pattern I have is for the dress, apron and pantaloons. All other outfits are made by stretching these patterns to get what I see in my mind.

    Q: Button Eyes
    Are the button eyes harmful?

    A: Definitely NO. In nearly seventeen years of making the Babes, I have not had a child injured from an eye coming off. When I do shows, I know the buttons are a concern for the parents so I encourage mom/dad to gently tug on the eyes so they will know how secure the buttons are. I now use dental floss. I use six through stitches, six top stitches and six bottom stitches for a total of 18 stitches securing the buttons to the Babe's face. The dental floss adds to the security of the eyes. If the buttons get wet from a young child chewing on them, the button stays secure and the moisture will not weaken the floss. It would take a good masculine "pull" to remove the eye which would take part of the face with the still attached button ... destroying the Babe or break the shank. :(

    Q: What is the return policy?
    What is the return policy?

    A: I will accept any Babe that is returned in its original unopened package. I charge a 20% restocking fee for any returned order.
