My one of a kind babies are all created with the utmost love and care. Each little one takes approximately 30-40 hours of work time, plus many more hours in drying and curing sessions. If their hair is micro-rooted one piece at a time, this is an additional 25-30 hours put into each creation. Babies from Hollow Tree Nursery are not toys and should NEVER be given to children. They are collector items meant only for adults.
Each babies’ skin is painted with professional artist grade permanent paints (ie. Golden, Utrecht, etc.) and sealed several times with a high quality matte varnish. Many, many (almost) transparent layers are added to get the right skin tones, fatty mottling, capillary mapping, veining and normal infant skin imperfections. For their custom bodies, which are sewn in-house of a very soft microsuede, I use secured glass gems for weight and many layers of high-grade polyfil to make them cuddly. Glass gems are also used in the head, so their necks need to be supported at all times, just like a real newborn. For joints, I use steel assemblies instead of cheap plastic, assuring many years of posable enjoyment; these joint are also internally linked together to prevent limb issues. Each baby's limbs are weighted with non-toxic polypellets to add to the lifelike qualities of these little loves. Hair can either be painted or penciled, then sealed, or can be rooted with quality mohair.

Layaways: I will accept layaway arrangements. Payments will be spread out over 3 months and the baby will not be shipped until the last payment has cleared. All payments are 100% NON-REFUNDABLE, even if you decide to not purchase the baby. An electronically signed agreement will be emailed, and if not returned in 24 hours, the baby will be relisted for sale. First deposit payment is 50% of the purchase price, due at the time of sale, with remaining amount to be divided over the following two months. Please contact me directly for this type of arrangement.
Shipping: Domestic US only and sent through Priority Mail with tracking and insurance, which the buyer is responsible for. I will refund excess shipping, if there is any. I do not offer free shipping on reborn babies. I usually ship within 2 business days to allow for clearing of payment and return of sale acknowledgement email**.
**To prevent scams and chargebacks, buyer will be required to respond to an email stating they acknowledge their purchase of the baby, and that we do not accept refunds or exchanges.
Refunds/Returns/Exchanges: All sales are final. Hollow Tree Nursery doesn’t accept returns or exchanges, nor do we offer refunds. Please ask for more photos or information before ordering/bidding. (I take photos during packaging to assure buyer receives everything in the ensemble, and to protect myself in the meantime.)
Hollow Tree Nursery is a non-smoking facility, though we do have 2 dogs. Babies may come smelling of baby powder.
Thank you for your interest!
With care, your baby from Hollow Tree Nursery will last many, many years. Please follow the directions on the Certificate of Authenticity to assure this.
