Announcement   NOTICE: I will be raising my prices on May First. Any doll ordered before that date will be at my current pricing. I currently have two May slots available (so if you purchase a doll spot, your doll will not be completed until around June first. I'm happy to answer questions!

Welcome! Introducing Maimeo Dolls, handmade dolls that are styled in the Waldorf tradition. Please see my shop policies to learn more about the story behind our creation!
Offering custom sweaters, dresses, and dolls! Let me know how I can help you!

My husband does not work a conventional 9-5 M-F job. Because of this I may work straight through a Saturday & most of a Sunday, but be unavailable on Wednesday and Thursday. If you have not heard from me at all in 24 hours, please email me again, or try on Facebook. I'm kind of addicted to my smart phone, but I also live in an area that gets almost ZERO 3g coverage.

I plan on offering 4 custom doll slots a month, as well as several ready to go dolls!

Please convo me here on etsy if you have any questions! Thank you!

Ordered a custom made Waldorf doll for my daughters first birthday. Shaina was a pleasure to work with, open communication and a great process. Can't wait for my baby to open her new baby!

Welcome!

I began making these dolls as a Christmas present for my two daughters. I adore crafting in general, but there is just something special about making these dolls!

When I was searching for a name, I knew I wanted to honor my grandmother who made dolls. I also discovered that my husbands grandmother made them as well, so I knew that was the direction I needed to head. After some research I discovered that Maimeo (pronounced MAM-O) is the name Irish children call their grandmothers (it doesn't actually mean grandmother, but is a term of endearment). Here in the hills of KY, we generally call our grandmothers Mamaw. It is my (totally uneducated) guess that we probably morphed Maimeo into Mamaw, as eastern Kentucky is made up of a lot of Irish ancestors. So Maimeo it is.

I will offer 4-5 Custom spots a month. You can buy a month or so ahead of time (or message me and I will set up a custom listing for you to pay half the price of the doll now, and the other half at the beginning of the month your slot is for). I will offer a few ready to go Dolls and Seconds dolls (dolls that have a boo-boo and will be offered at a discounted price, the boo-boo will be clearly stated in the listing). Thank you!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I want you to be happy with your doll. If you aren't, then I want to try and fix it.

When you receive your "proof" pictures, PLEASE let me know if something doesn't meet your expectations. We can work together to make you happy!

If you receive your doll and have an issue with it, please contact me ASAP. I will refund you the full price of your doll up to one week after you receive your doll, so please inspect it as soon as it arrives. I merely ask that you pay return shipping to me. If you have not mentioned anything in the proof pictures before receiving your doll, I will NOT refund you for your yarn. That's my "payment" for the work that I put into your doll.

If your doll needs a repair within 1 year of your purchase, please contact me with photos. There are certain repairs that I will happily make free of charge if you pay for shipping both ways.
Payment
Custom dolls have a set price for a "basic" doll (as stated on the listing). Any additional add ons that you decide on will be combined into one custom (for you) listing.

If you need to cancel your order please contact me ASAP. Your custom slot can be transferred to someone else.
Shipping
All purchases will be shipped Priority, with delivery confirmation and insurance. International orders will only be shipped priority, fully insured, and you must pay the difference.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am a mom to two small girls (both under three). Because of this, timing may be affected. If someone gets sick, I am first and foremost a Momma. I have overestimated in how long it takes me to complete a doll to compensate for this, but I just wanted to put something in my policies to this note. If a serious illness (honestly though, other than my little one teething, my girls only get sick around Christmas) happens, I will let you know ASAP and post it to my Facebook page.
