Description

This is a handmade, one-of-a-kind 11 inch cloth baby doll, with a hand-painted face, a pink flowered body with a red heart, and a personalized hang tag by artist Elizabeth Ruffing.

"Gumdrop Babies" are full of sweetness. They have lots of love to give and they're always happy to give it.

Want to name your own baby? This baby doll is all ready for adoption. All (s)he needs is a name from you. Please include a message (in the notes at checkout, or contact me) with the name you would like on your hang tag (shown in the bottom right photo). You can name your baby, or I can print "For + a recipient's name" on the hang tag, which comes tied to your Gumdrop Baby with a ribbon. I also have room on the back of the tag for a short message, if you would like to include one. If you would like to send your baby doll as a gift, to a separate address, I can include a gift note for you as well. Just let me know what you'd like your note to say. This listing is for one "Gumdrop Baby" with a pink floral body, with lavender flowers and golden yellow butterflies, a red heart, black hair, mocha brown skin color, and brown eyes. Please allow one to two business days between your purchase and shipment for me to make your hang tag.

“Gumdrop Babies” are original one-of-a-kind dolls, created from my own original design and pattern. Each is hand signed on his or her bottom. “Gumdrop Babies” are handmade by me and are meant to be displayed, loved, played with, and most of all, hugged. Their little smiles are contagious too.

They are sweet, whimsical gifts for people of all ages. They've been sleeping companions for children, have welcomed new babies, and have celebrated birthdays and all kinds of special occasions. They have also comforted and cheered people who needed a hug. They make cute additions to a baby's nursery, a child's bedroom, or any room in the house where you'd like to have a huggable baby smiling back at you.

"Gumdrop Babies" have no loose or removable parts and so they are safe for play (their cute hang tags are meant to be untied and put away for safe keeping before giving to small children). I hand paint their innocent-looking faces with acrylic paint and heat set them. I fuse their appliqué features on and then use zig zag machine stitching to finish their edges for added durability. They are stuffed with Poly-fil polyester stuffing.

Her body is made of 100% cotton quilting fabrics, which have been pre-washed and machine dried. She can be gently spot cleaned with cool soapy water, avoiding the painted areas, rinsed with cool water, and set out to air dry. She should not be submerged in water or placed in the washer or dryer to insure her stuffing does not settle.

This “Gumdrop Baby” is approximately 11 to 11 1/2 inches tall.

What buyers have said about my dolls:

"Absolutely the BEST! !!!!"

"Thank you so much! Everything Perfect! A+++++++++ Beautiful doll! I love her!"

"He's beautiful..Marvelous craftsmanship and I hugged him immediately! Thanks so much."

"I absolutely love Doris! She came very quickly, packaged with care (personal note included), and ready to be loved. My whole family passed her around and gave her hugs and squeezes.........she was a big hit. Very creative!"

"Very unusual and fun piece of art! I love it! AAA+++!!!"

"Beautiful doll, very sweet and rapid transaction! Awesome! AA++!"

Should you like to make this “Gumdrop Baby” your own, (s)he will come to you carefully packaged and delivered by Priority Mail with delivery confirmation, within the United States. Outside of the United States, she will be shipped via First Class Mail International. If you would prefer Express Mail, Priority Mail International, Priority Mail APO/FPO Flat Rate shipping, or you'd like to ship to a country that isn't on the "Ship To" list below, please inquire for a shipping quote.

I accept PayPal, money orders, and cashier’s checks. Please contact me within 3 days if you are mailing payment. Payment is expected within 7 days.

I’ve ordered upwards of 50 items from Etsy. The most responsive and accommodating shop I’ve ever ordered from, was this one. The owner was creative and helpful. My daughter loves her “hug me slug”, she named her Mrs. Sluggyness. I ordered another for my son. You will be thrilled with your purchase. The packaging was adorable too!

Shipping policies

I ship most packages via USPS Priority Mail, within the United States, and by USPS First Class International Package Service, outside of the United States, unless otherwise noted in the listing. I usually ship within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday), sometimes the same day. I am shipping from North Carolina, USA. The Post Office here is closed on weekends. I will send you a shipping date and a tracking number. Priority Mail shipping usually takes 2-3 days to arrive within the United States. The Post Office strives for 2-3 day shipping for most locations with Priority Mail, but sometimes that varies. If you are closer to the west coast, the Post Office strives for 3-day shipping for Priority Mail, which may also vary. USPS First Class International Package Service arrival dates vary, depending on customs and other factors, including holiday traffic and destination. Please allow at least 2 weeks or more for international orders to arrive. International orders may be subject to customs fees from your own country as well.

(The United States Post Office also offers Priority Mail Express 1-day shipping within the United States, and I can do that for you if you let me know right away. It costs considerably more however, and I need to bill you and receive payment for extra shipping before I can ship. The Post Office also offers Priority Mail Express International 3-5 day shipping, for orders outside the United States, but again, it is very expensive, and the same applies.)

I calculate postage based on the current United States Postal Service fees, plus the cost of the box or envelope, and other packing materials, where applicable. Please feel free to contact me for an accurate shipping quote on specific combined items, or for an exact amount to your specific zip code. If you don't see your country listed, please ask for a shipping quote, and I will look up the information for you.

Additional policies

Please make sure that I have all the information I need, in your note to me during checkout or in a message to me, to send your toy (or other item):

I also have room on the back of the hang tag for a short message, if you would like to include one. I can also make the tag blank.

2) Let me know if I am shipping your toy (or other item) as a gift to an address other than your own. I can also include a gift note, at no extra charge, if I am shipping the toy as a gift directly to his or her new home. If you would like gift wrap on smaller toys, I can add that onto your order too for a small additional charge to cover a gift bag and the shipping for a larger box. Feel free to ask.

3) If you need your package to arrive by a certain date, please let me know that as well.
