What do you mean by eco-friendly dolls?
It means that all the materials used for our dolls are renewable and biodegradable, they will not harm the environment. Our dolls are handcrafted in the Waldorf tradition out of wool felt, wool, cotton interlock knit, cotton thread, pipe cleaner wire, wood, recycled paper, non-toxic textile paint, non-toxic felt glue. Their packaging consists of recyclable paper and biodegradable cellophane.
Is the height of the dolls measured with or without the flower on the head?
It is measured without the head decoration, that's why dolls listed with the same height may actually appear as having different heights.
What do you mean by bendable arms and legs?
It means that you can bend a doll's arms and legs to get it into various poses, like holding something, sitting etc.
How does the bottom of the dress that look like?
Currently we are transitioning from covering the bottom with glued felt to sewn felt.
The glued bottom looks like this:
The sewn bottom looks like this:
Can children play with these dolls?
Yes, children ages 4+. We do not advertise them as toys, but as decorations. They contain small parts that can accidentally detach. After opening, carefully remove and dispose of their cellophane bags.
How do I leave a review?
Please go to the individual page of the doll that you purchased. After its description you will find a field entitled CUSTOMER REVIEWS. Click on "Write a review" and fill in the fields, including how many stars you think that the doll deserves (5 stars maximum). Your reviews will help us to build the reputation and the credibility of our business.
Wool can be eaten by the larvae of certain moths. Is this the case of your dolls?
Unfortunately yes. We use wool felt for their outfits and natural wool for their hair, and wool is the main food source for these larvae. We don’t use any chemicals to prevent this to happen since the dolls are intended to be eco-friendly. The moth would lay eggs on items made of wool and then the larvae will feed on it until they turn into new moths. If the dolls are kept unpackaged in an open space like a shelf, toy basket etc., they should be fine. However, if you store for instance your Christmas dolls in a place prone to moth development, like your closet, you might have an unpleasant surprise to find a disintegrated doll next time you need them. We suggest that you keep the seasonal dolls in a Ziploc bag with a few cedar chips in it, that will repel the bug. In Romania we use a small piece of naphthalene for this purpose. Until now we only have one customer who had this issue. If this happens we will send you a free replacement. I found this article to help you to lean more about this common problem with wool derived products:
What are your shipping terms?
We offer free shipping for orders of minimum $300.00. For lower orders the shipping costs are passed on to the vendor.
How does your retail packaging look like?
We use eco-friendly recyclable gift boxes in three seizes, depending on the size of the doll. Below you can see the most used box (small box).
What is the delivery time for the items in stock?
The items in stock are shipped within 3 business days or less, depending on the volume of orders.
How can you tell how many dolls you have in stock for each skin tone for the dolls that come in more than one skin tone?
If you select the desired skin tone from the "Skin tone" drop down menu (which can be "fair, light, medium or dark"), the picture of that doll will become the main picture of the page. On its right, above the price, the inventory quantity will automatically get updated for that skin tone as well. If the doll is available in stock it will say, for instance, "We have: 10 in stock". If it's out of stock the blue "ADD TO CART" button will turn into a gray inactive "SOLD OUT" button.
What is your policy for returns and refunds?
Our products are guaranteed to be free from defects but we do accept returns if you are not satisfied with your purchase. Please mail the dolls back in their original unopened packaging. The cellophane bag will allow you to inspect the doll prior to opening its package, so you can easily decide if you would like to keep it or not. We guarantee your money back for the value of the returned purchase, but we do not refund the costs of the original and return shipping.
Do you ship internationally?
No, sorry, we only ship domestically within the U.S.
