Congratulations! If you’ve navigated to this page, you most likely want to know more about custom made reborn dolls; in hopes to have one made for yourself or a dear friend. Read on for more information.
What is a custom made reborn doll?
A custom made reborn doll, is a reborn doll that is completely created by your own specifications. You are allowed to choose the doll sculpt (also known as a doll kit), the hair color, eye color (if applicable), and skin tone. You also get to choose the gender (boy or girl) and skin tone of your reborn doll. If you are creative (like me!) you can request special features to your reborn baby like milk spots, birth marks, freckles, moles, and pierced ears!
Over the last 3-5 years, specially sculpted reborn dolls have become available on the market representing babies with born with varying conditions such as: achondroplasia (dwarfism), downs syndrome, and diprosopus/cranialfacial duplication. Artist Vencenzina Care of Chenza’s Dolls is credited for this amazing OOAK (one-of-a-kind) work of art.
How much does a custom doll cost?
Custom reborns are one of the priciest reborn dolls you can collect as they are made exactly the way you want. No two reborn dolls are made the same and yours will be truly one-of-a-kind (OOAK). The high quality materials used and the artist’s time is what you are paying for. Realistic custom made reborn dolls can be anywhere from $500 to thousands of dollars depending on the size of doll you want, the type of hair requested and skin tone. Let’s also not forget shipping charges!
Where can I buy a custom reborn?

Should I purchase my own doll kit to save money?
Honestly, the answer is NO. You will not save any money by purchasing your own doll kit as opposed to the artist doing all the leg work. Once you purchase a kit and pay for shipping, you will have to pay for shipping again to mail it to your artist. It is wise to simply pay your deposit fee and let your artist do all the work!
In the only case you should purchase your own doll kit, is if the kit is pre-order and limited edition. These doll sculpts are special and often produced in as little as 200 kits to be distributed worldwide! In this event, purchase the kit and find a reborn artist to bring it to life later.
