DOLLY DIMPLES REBORN NURSERY
I am a self employed professional Reborn Artist.
For the last 14 years my babies have travelled all around the world to many happy Mummy's.
My dolls have featured in a television series and also in a film made at Pinewood Studios.
Each baby is painted over many layers using heat set paints which do not fade. No two babies are the exact same as they are hand painted.
I usually give my babies a glowing new born look, but I can also make them more mottled or with little scratches on them.
All my babies a tiny little beauty spot on the left side of their head so that customers know it is a Dolly Dimples Reborn Nursery doll.
Every doll has hair which is hand rooted. This takes a lot of time time to do and I only use the highest quality mohair for every baby.
Over the years the price of the mohair has greatly increased, but I always try my very best to keep my prices as reasonable as I can.
I do not take the time it takes my to make each baby into consideration when I am pricing my dolls as that would probably double the price!
The sculptures vary greatly in prices.
Some of the sculptures can cost over 100 pounds.
All my dolls have a doe suede body which is disc jointed so the limbs can be moved.
I usually use fine smooth glass beads and top quality fiberfill to fill my dolls to make them feel like a real baby. They also have a floppy head which needs supported just like a real baby.
I have recently started using Plastisol to fill the limbs. This is heated and then poured into the the limbs and then sets sort of like a jelly. This makes the limbs feel softer and more realistic. It is not as soft as silicone, but I think it could be a game changer for the dolls as it is the nearest thing to silicone.
It is completely safe and hygienic. It is already used in manufacturing to make baby toys and other soft items.
It is more expensive to use than the other filings, but worth it for the result.
I love making my babies and I still get excited every time I receive a new sculpture!
Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I look forward to hearing from you.
All my babies now come with a safety photograph of your baby and my logo.

When you buy a Reborn Doll you are not buying a toy, you are buying a work of art.
