Doll Anatomy's primary goal is to ensure that we delivery great customer service and lots of fun! We are a small independent entity that is constantly evolving and striving to improve your experience with us. This website was created with the art doll collector in mind. We wanted to artistically re-create & showcase dolls that would appeal to such collectors & their interests; therefore, the dolls on this site have realistic faces & expressions, resemble everyday people through hair styling, accessories, and handmade attire. They are near anatomically correct in a tasteful, proportionate, artistic manner. The dolls on this website are sometimes called "repaints", but they are so much more than just a repaint! The dolls listed on this website are fully customized dolls, which includes a repainted face, unique hair styling or wigs, handmade quality clothes using the artist's patterns, jewelry, and more! Our dolls are perfect for online stories, pageants, show dolls, play (by an adult), doll dramas, or to add beauty and excitement to your display cabinet! All creations are done by one artist who uses the entire doll as her canvas! All of the artwork is carefully done by hand, and it is not perfect, on purpose. "Perfection" is not one of our services, but we do provide quality customized dolls, repaints, handmade clothing, and dolls that are a joy to own! All artwork is based on the artist's free creative vision- she does not take commissions, but we do list unique art dolls regularly. Some of the dolls we customize and augment are not manufactured by us. We refer to them as re-creations because their original creators are Mattel, Robert Tonner, Fashion Royalty etc. We have no affiliation with these companies. We have simply taken these cherished dolls' possibilities to a whole new level. This is all done for the sake of artistic expression and fun! The artist is working on her own original doll prototypes, and we look forward to unveiling them in the near future.

Here at DollAnatomy.com our main priority is to take the time needed to create quality art work/ customized dolls, prepare & ship orders in a timely manner, and provide our customers with current orders with shipping updates.The best way to communicate with us is via email, or by using our Inquiries & Contact Form. Since doll customizing and repainting is both time and concentration intensive, and the artist is working very hard on customer's dolls & orders daily- all phone calls will be directed to voice-mail. Phone calls & emails will be responded to within approximately 48 hours. Our contact information is conveniently listed on one page that can be accessed by clicking on the "Contact Us" header tab above on all pages.

Here at Doll Anatomy we want all of our customers to be very satisfied with our services and items! We will accept returns only if we have grossly misrepresented a service or item. Due to external handling outside of DollAnatomy- a restocking fee in the amount of 50% the total price of the art doll will be charged for returns. In the unlikely instance an item needs to be returned to us- that item must be in the exact condition in which it was shipped. Items that smell of smoke, perfume, or are other wise tainted or rearranged are not eligible for a refund due to the loss of value imposed. Our return policies are as follows: We ask that you study all photos and literature that show or describe the item or doll that you are opting to receive in order to ensure that you will more likely be satisfied with the outcome. For your protection, since we are not responsible for losses, or damages that occur during shipping, all dolls must be insured!!! This way, you can be compensated for any unlikely losses.
Our body augmentations are permanent; and therefore not returnable. We are not responsible for damages done as a result of improper handling of the item by the receiver. If the customer is responsible for the damages to the work that was done by us- that customer will also be responsible for any repair fees & shipping fees that are required in order to ship an item back to us for repair. We will only accept items that are repairable.* Please contact customer service more information regarding returns.*
We usually allow reservations & layaway privileges for our customers who have had at least 1 successful transaction with us on DollAnatomy.com or eBay. However, if you see a doll you just have to have, and you are a sincere buyer who will complete payments for the doll on time- we may consider layaway for certain listings. We cannot guarantee that we can extend layaway to first time customers due to past experiences with layaway reservations gone south. It helps us with a decision if you have positive feedback on other sites that prove your are an upstanding buyer. The customer must make a down payment of 1/2 the total for all items placed on layaway, or to reserve a doll- and the item must be paid in full within 30 days. This down payment is non-refundable- so shop carefully & wisely. All cancelled dolls, or ones who are not paid in full by the agreed date will be re-listed for sale. Please contact our customer service for more details about our very limited and strict layaway plan for dolls listed in our store.
