As of January 1, 2021 due to the rising costs of materials and my painting techniques and turnaround, I’ve made changes to my layaway plans and deposits and final value cost (adjusted accordingly.)
–Custom orders currently CLOSED–
4 slots will be open, when advertised. Or you can request to be put on the waiting list for the next available queue. It takes approx 6-8 weeks to paint your doll.
I charge $497 for deposit. This covers shipping cost and kit costs, as well as any customization stuffs (mohair, rooting needles, eyes, tummy plate). Deposits are non-refundable only after the order has been confirmed and the kit has been ordered on my end (& the reborn process has begun).
At this time I’m only opening customs on sculpts I have in my inventory or have preordered. And they will be completed using my own artistic style and finishing, like all my ready to ship babies do. They will include a full prototype style layette, certificates, hair care, and keepsake photobook as well.
You can choose the gender or leave that up to me, your choice. There may also be flexibility to choose the skin tone or ethnicity of a kit.
I will treat this sculpt like a ready made baby and create using my full artistic freedom. Babies will have my signature combi hair, painted and textured with mono rooting through the crown. They will have individual differences based on their age and painting, to reflect the height of realism. This means baby may have peeling skin on their ankles or wrists, a lip blister, sleep in the eyes, milia, and birth details like heel prick or a creamier skin tone if the baby is older and not so newborny.
All sleeping sculpts (unless they were difficult to secure or high valued kits who are now sold out) will be 1697+shipping.
Opened eyed sculpts will be 1797+shipping.
If you desire a belly plate I can paint one for $100 more.
I can also send baby home without a layette or photobook & keepsakes – just certificates and a blanket & onesie for $1547 (sleeping) or $1647 (awake) respectively.

I have created over 500 babies & have a full portfolio on facebook.com/Rebornsweet & on my webpage www.rebornsweet.com. I have done prototypes by some of the top reborn sculptors like Ann Timmerman, Lorraine Yophi, Laura Lee Eagles, Olga Auer, Sandy Faber, Samantha Gregory, Lenka Hucinova, Iveta Eckertova, Lisa Stone, Doris Moyers Hornbogen, Ghadir Al Shirazi, Angela Degner, Toby Morgan, Cathy Rowland, Bonnie Sieben, and companies like Puppen-Traumland, Macpherson Crafts, and Truborn. My business was also featured in GLOBE & MAIL (Dec 2015).
All my custom babies go home with a three piece outfit set, sleeper & handknit bonnet, photo romper or boutique outfit, pacifier (magnetized or modified depending on the doll/request), BIBS pacifier and handmade pacifier chain, hair bow/headband, blanket, birth certificate & the sculptor’s signed authenticity sheet (COA) by artist and keepsake photo album and birth certificate, care instructions, and hair care set.
I require the balance to be paid in full before shipping. Deposit on custom dolls is non-refundable after the order has begun.
Shipping is approx $30-50 within Canada, $60-90 US; $110-200+ (estimate) worldwide.
*** PROTOTYPES ***
My prototype babies will all be listed at a set rate (just like my custom order babies) and be available first come first serve (as per custom order listings). They will remain one of a kind as well – no lookalikes. I’ve long since felt that the way in which prototype babies sell on Ebay and the like, while fair to buyers in a way (making it open to all who want to own) often means dolls sell for a very large cost to their moms, with very high stakes bidding wars. And in the end so few can actually purchase the finished baby (even after they’ve fallen in love with it).
One of the things I set out to do with my babies, coming into the industry, was make it so that my babies could be affordable to all, while achieving the highest level of realism and joy to own. Because a prototype is a great honour and first of the sculpts in the market place, they do deserve to be priced higher. HOWEVER, I want to keep it reasonable. From now on, all my prototype babies will now be $1897 and open for 3 mos layaway after 24 hrs of listing. I will give lead time for each baby before it’s put in shop as well. If you’d like to be notified about a prototype (or ready to ship doll I’m making) email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: (dolls name) or early bird.
I’m absolutely thrilled to finally be able to do this. And eliminate Ebay much as possible. Please note, prototypes will never be remade, I will not do a lookalike of baby either.
Prototype babies go home with the same layette as customs + a boutique knit hat and romper set, extra goodies, and a custom new baby photo album of all pictures taken of baby for its showcase.
*** LAYAWAY PLANS IN EFFECT (as of January 1st, 2021)
* For custom orders- All non-refundable deposits will be $497 and the remaining balance is to be paid over 3-6 months in 3-6 installments. You must let me know at the outset of the order if layaway is required so I can plan accordingly. Otherwise balance will be due when baby is done and ready to head home. Additionally: Failure to make regular payments on the designated dates of your layaway terms may result in forfeiture of slot as well as any and all payments unless prior arrangements are made. Doll will then be publicly listed for sale.
* For existing babies, they are available on a first come first serve basis. For layaway, the initial non-refundable deposit will be 1/3rd of the doll’s final price to reserve, with remaining balance to be paid in 2 installments over 2 months. Any payments not received will result in forfeiture of all payments made and reborn will be resold, unless prior arrangements have been made.
*** FREE BABIES ***
YES! I give away FREE reborn babies on my FB page (/rebornsweet) Giveaways are on a quasi regular schedule and will be posted often with LOTS of lead time so everyone can participate and no one misses out. Dolls are given away by random draw (and not by request). Private messages asking for freebies WILL be ignored.
Thank you for being a fan and supporting my shop – it means the world to me!
I also now offer painted hair and combi hair for hire services (not subject to the queue). My turnaround for hair is 1-2 weeks. 🙂
