FAQ

How can I find out about available babies?

First and foremost, 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.  When I have a doll completed, it will be listed for sale here on my website, my Facebook page, and I also will advertise on YouTube, Instagram, Etsy and Doll Fan. I will occasionally advertise and list a baby for sale on eBay as well. 

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

Usually within 24 hours. 

How can I purchase a silicone baby?

I complete dolls one at at a time and this process takes a lot of time to complete. I sell each doll individually once it is completed. I sometimes do special/custom orders or pre-orders for a baby. When I have a doll completed, it will be listed for sale here on my website, my Facebook page, and I also will advertise on YouTube, Instagram, Etsy and Doll Fan. I will occasionally advertise and list a baby for sale on eBay as well. 

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, type of silicone poured in, and the level of difficulty and time in completing the doll. 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 completed 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. 

What payment methods do you accept?

I use PayPal to process my orders. Through PayPal, you have the option of linking any credit card or debit card to your account as well as a checking account, savings account, etc., to purchase my dolls.  Additionally, PayPal offers other options such as their PayPal Credit and/or Bill Me Later plans. PayPal even offers their own PayPal Credit Card. Any questions about PayPal and their service offers and plans should be directed to PayPal. If in the USA, Cash App is also a great payment method. (That may be exclusive to Apple iPhone - not sure). Additionally, I accept a certified check/money order if previously arranged and discussed with myself in email or text conversations prior to sending. The certified check/money order is most certainly a preferred payment method if it can be sent overnight to me. I ship the same day certified check/money order is received and cleared.

Do you do other services such as painting a blank, never before painted, full body solid silicone baby or hair rooting on a doll I have or plan to purchase? 

Yes. If you have a blank, never before painted, full body solid silicone baby doll and would like to have it painted to include a matte finish, please ask me to quote you a price.  If you would like your silicone baby doll's hair rooted, eyebrows rooted, eyelashes rooted, etc., please also ask me to give you a price on this service. Hair rooting would be done in your choice of hair color. Eyebrows can also be painted in lieu of rooted - this would be your choice. I can do a full painting job or a hair rooting job, or both. You can click on the link for "Past Babies" at the top of this page to view my previous work and see my painting style and hair rooting styles. Have baby stud earrings and would like your silicone baby's ears pieced? Ask me about doing that also. Customer pays the shipping cost to and from. Customer also pays PayPal fees for processing your payment transaction. I accept PayPal payment or certified check/money order only as payment for these services. I am based in the U.S.  I do not paint vinyl dolls. I specialize in painting and rooting silicone babies.  These services are paid upfront and are nonrefundable. To request a quote on the service(s) you are interested in, please email me at amykatedolldesigns@gmail.com.  All email inquires are typically answered very quickly within 24 hours.

Do you make Custom Dolls or Portrait Dolls?

No, I do not take custom doll orders or custom portrait doll orders. I sell my dolls only when they are completed and ready to ship. I will, however, consider painting and/or rooting a full body solid silicone blank doll kit never before painted or rooted of any size that a customer has or would like me to purchase for completing for the customer.  A special payment arrangement would be made in this scenario.  I do not paint vinyl dolls. I specialize in painting and rooting silicone babies.    

Do you ship internationally?

Yes I do ship internationally primarily to the United Kingdom, Canada, Norway, Finland, Germany, and Australia, but the buyer is responsible for all customs charges and taxes imposed by their country. International shipping is typically 6 to 10 business days to most countries. Occasionally, shipping can be delayed by Customs especially near the holidays.

Do you accept layaway?

I prefer payment in full, but I do sometimes allow a short layaway plan. If layaway is an option, it will be written on the doll's purchasing page. My standard layaway is 3 to 4 months long and will require an immediate deposit of a down payment that will be based upon what the total cost of the doll is and monthly payments made toward the balance. The doll will not ship until the entire amount has been paid in full. Again, PayPal Credit is a great option also, because PayPal Credit offers interest-free plans that allows the buyers to receive the baby upfront and allows the seller to be paid in full upfront.
