In the Left Column of this page, under Shop Info, click ABOUT to see more info about my Mouse (or Rat) Dolls!

I spend between 9 and 12 hours on each of these 18" dolls. Using non-toxic glue, the eyes and noses are glued and attached with permanent "locknuts" on the inside; the nose is glued and additionally sewn at the base to the inside seam for additional security against removal. The heart-shaped birth mark is sewn on with 2 or 3 stitches on each side and glued on the back side, and it could possibly be torn off with effort.

These dolls are of the highest quality imaginable--they are a true treasure, and a quality doll that can withstand play! (I have three 7-year-old GrandDaughter's, and their Mouse Dolls that are now 3 years old still look brand new! (The dresses show wear if not cared for, but the Doll holds up miraculously!)

ONE-OF-A-KIND (OOAK) DOLLS AND NAMING CONVENTIONS POLICY:
Because these dolls are so unique, replications will be offered. The Replica will not be "exactly" the same due to random placement of embellishments upon a dress; for a Replica, the doll number will be enhanced to indicate it's true position in production, combined with the number of the doll being replicated. When specific fabrics are no longer available, similar fabrics can be offered as an alternative for a Replica as long as the general description of the fabric is the same as the original "intent" of the original fabric. Replication will be limited to availability of dress fabrics and will not be available for replication when the original supply or suitable substitution fabric supplies run out.

For the Mouse / Rat dolls with personalities, If a doll named "Susan" is sold, a new "Susan" should carry a middle name such as "Susan Eileen" or have a distinctly-different Personality and Clothing. Non-personality dolls will not be controlled in this manner. Any Rat Doll can have the same name as a pre-existing Mouse Doll, subsequently using the same criteria, and a Personality can be similar to the Mouse Doll of the same name simply because one is a Mouse and one is a Rat.

WARRANTY/RETURN POLICY: The 18" Mouse or Rat Dolls are is warranted forever for the stringing of the Arms and Legs--if it should ever fail, simply return it to me and I will fix it and return it to you. The product is warranted for 3 months against normal wear-and-tear defects and during this 3-month period only the specific defective item will be replaced (unless there is a problem matching the item); for example, a leg ripped due to a failed stitch or defect in the fabric and the replacement fabric for a new leg doesn't match well--the entire doll will be replaced if that is the case--or if the dress fabric failed, the dress will be repaired or replaced as appropriate with the same or similar-themed fabric. After 3 months, for any defects or damage, I will negotiate a low price for you to recover your loss, however, the defective item must be returned in order to substantiate the claim.

SALES TAX: I am required to collect Sales Tax for sales that originate from the state of New Jersey.

PRIVACY POLICY: I do not share any information about you with any other party. I have no tracking for my Web Page and do not know who visits my store. I am only aware of the words you use to search for my products. I am a sole proprietor. Refer to ETSY's Privacy Policy for more information.

PRODUCT CONTENTS:
The Stuffed Toy Act requires manufacturers to list the contents of a Stuffed Toy and to register with states that require registration. The State of New Jersey, where I am located, does not require registration. Additionally, for states that require registration, a requirement is that there is a stationary location through which the toy is sold in that state. I am an independent toy maker, and I do not have a stationary location through which I sell this doll in the state of NJ--these dolls are only sold on-line and at some Craft Fairs. From my research, an online seller does not have a real-estate location that makes them eligible for registration. Additionally, the requirements for the statement of content does not have a high level of requirements, and I am providing a list of contents that far exceeds the requirement. However, under the registration required by some states, flammability testing by certified laboratories is required which is adverse to small toy manufacturers based on the cost; for that reason, a bill has been passed to remove that burden from small toy manufacturers.

This information is being offered to you, the consumer, so that you are aware of laws that are provided to protect you, the consumer. On the 18" dolls, it is my pledge to you that I affix noses with strong string, locknuts, and glue, eyes with locknuts and glue, and the wooden buttons on the doll's arms and legs with strong string and glued multiple termination knots in order to protect from choking hazards. Additionally, I use non-toxic glue. For the smaller 8" baby mouse/rat and 4" infant mouse/rat, the beaded eyes/noses are below the standard for choking hazard, and the weighted bottoms consist of small plastic bags covered with food-safe paper and filled with either course sand or miniature glass beads that are also below the standard for choking hazards. The small amounts of Pink color on the ears of these smaller dolls are created with permanent ink markers, which could be toxic if licked or chewed, as there is no publicly available information on the cured mobility or toxicity of those inks. Other interior stuffings are 100% polyester polyfill. Types of plastic, rubber, and fabric contents are provided on the labels by an estimated percentage of total content.

I also suggest that you visit Country Mouse Inn here on Etsy, as I have purchased her felted 3" ornaments and removed the string to use them as baby mice for my GrandDaughters!
