Why You Should Order Your Custom Reborn Baby From Me

Featured Artist at Dolls by Sandie

My name is Betty Coffman and I am a well-known, established professional reborn doll artist and I am active in the reborn community. I have achieved trusted artist status through more than a decade of hard work, continued learning and establishing a satisfaction guarantee that ensures that no customer is EVER stuck with a baby they don’t absolutely love. My artistry began in 2007 when I created my very first baby. I continued throughout many years developing my skills until in 2013 I began selling professionally on Etsy. Since then I have moved into full time artistry and now sell worldwide on Etsy and also through my private collection shop.

I depend on this work to provide for my family, therefore I am continually searching for ways to make my work better and more accessible for collectors all over the world – and from every economic background. I offer generous payment plan options for both silicone and vinyl babies so everyone can afford to buy a custom baby of their own. I believe in the work that I do and to me and many countless others these babies are much more than collectibles. They bring healing & comfort to those whose lives they touch. My ultimate goals in life are to serve God with my gifts & talents and to bring happiness to my wonderful community of collectors.

About My Babies

All of My Babies are painted with three dimensional skin and age appropriate veining that appears translucent in places just like a real baby’s. Mottling is added in multiple colors/shades built from the same palette. Creases & fat wrinkles are shaded in two different colors (to achieve the warm, natural effect and add depth). Depending on the Baby Style you choose for your baby your level of detailing & realism will be more or less realistic.

Barely There Eyebrows are painted in several layers in the color of your choice and will appear three dimensional. Sleeping babies will have eyelashes that are rooted.

A magnet will be added inside the head just behind the lips for a pacifier (unless no magnet is requested in the notes).

The body and limbs are weighted with ultra fine glass beads and topped with premium polyfil for a naturally poseable body and soft, limbs that are slightly squeezable when the sculpt allows.

The head is weighted, and will need support just like a newborn. You choose your hair type (rooted/painted/bald). Alpaca/Angora mohair is micro-rooted complete with baby swirl at the crown and then sealed from the inside of the head with clear drying adhesive to prevent excess shedding.

Packaging & level of detailing will vary based on your selections. All babies are wrapped and carefully packaged for their trip home. Baby Shower/Box Opening items may be delivered in the same packaging as the baby or may arrive separately depending on many factors including availability of items and efficiency.

Baby Care & Handling

These dolls are collector’s items and must be handled with care to avoid damage. Special care must be taken when dressing and undressing your baby to prevent tearing the body or separating the limbs. I personally check the integrity of each limb after assembly and dress the baby with the normal level of care expected to ensure the limbs and body are securely attached.

Babies that have rooted hair should be handled very gently. Don’t overstyle your baby’s hair. Regular gentle combing and an occasional spritz of baby conditioner will keep your baby’s hair looking great.

Be aware that everything cloth that touches your baby should be washed first! The vinyl and silicone can and will leech pigments from dark colored fabrics left in contact with your baby. Paints used in my studio are highly pigmented and heat sealed for longevity BUT they will fade over time. This is a natural degenerative process. Extend the life of your baby’s paint by carefully caring for it correctly.

Options For Return

1.  Return form must be submitted within 48 hours of receiving the baby. Requests initiated after 48 hours will not be honored.
2.  The baby must be returned  in the same condition it  was received.  If baby has been taken apart, altered or damaged in any way the return will be voided.
3.  Return shipping must be tracked and insured for the full purchase price. The tracking number must be provided in the form. If a baby is returned uninsured and it is damaged in transit the return will be voided.

Terms & Conditions

1. Orders are started upon receiving the materials. This is generally 14-21 days from your date of purchase. Occasionally, it may take longer to receive the materials. Such as in the case of temporary out of stock kits and brand new releases. It is the buyer’s responsibility to check for any delays BEFORE ORDERING.

2. Due to the nature and complexity of this artistry, please allow up to 32 weeks for the creation of your baby. You may guarantee delivery of your baby in 16 weeks OR LESS (from receipt of materials delivery) by request in The Baby Designer (Order # REQUIRED &  Provided In Order Confirmation Email). However, keep in mind that babies that spend more time on my table are always the most detailed.  Your baby is an investment for me too and I want it to be as perfect as possible. Patience is required when ordering CUSTOM hand made items!

3. These dolls are hand made art pieces.  Subtle variations and minor imperfections are normal and inherent in all hand made items and are NOT considered to be defects. To guarantee a baby without any subtle nuances or natural variations  you must choose a manufactured and not an artist made baby.Please keep in mind that manufactured dolls are NOT REBORNS and are not genuinely LIFELIKE in appearance the way REAL REBORN BABIES ARE.  They look like beautiful DOLLS but not exactly like a real baby.  There are no refunds, no cancellations and no returns on any custom made doll.

4. Reporting your transaction as an item not received FORCES immediate shipment of incomplete item. Please be patient and communicate with ME directly regarding your order. Once an item not received report has been issued it is out of my hands. Your incomplete doll must be sent at that time.

5. There are NO CANCELLATIONS on ANY ORDER. ALL sales are FINAL. If you ordered the wrong baby by accident I can change the kit for you at no cost as long as the materials have NOT BEEN ORDERED. If the materials have already been ordered you may change your kit at cost of materials.
