The Wonder Woman Nutcracker was beautifully made. You can see the level of detail that was applied. The recipient absolutely loved it, they were amazed. Thank you so much! A++

The custom nutcracker that I ordered is everything I asked for and more. The amount of detail in the clothing, hair, and even eye color is just amazing. All of the requests I made were graciously accommodated, and it's obvious that great care was taken to make everything just right. It was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. These are truly unique and wonderful gifts!

Hi and thank you for checking out Really Cool Nutcrackers. We are a husband and wife team, that started out as a hobby for me making custom nutcrackers for family, when I opened up my Etsy shop and sold my very first Army nutcracker to someone other than family. Then sold my second one days later and I knew I had stumbled on something quite unique...

I bought a few nutcrackers from a craft store and painted them and my husband said "I can make these, you know..." and that was all he wrote! He soon bought a mini lathe and a used band saw and got to work! I tell him what I want made next and we discuss the look of the doll and then production starts!

Each doll takes time to make. From turning the block of wood on the lathe, to making the moving parts, to fitting it together and then it is handed to me where I do the finishing touches like paint and/or clothes. Start to finish takes about 3 to 4 weeks, give or take.

Most of the nutcrackers on my site are my own design, and some are custom orders. Any nutcracker you see on my site, active or sold, can be duplicated. It wont be an exact, but it can be close and if you want a little of your own look thrown in that can be arranged. I can make you a custom doll or dolls, just start a conversation with me and we can discuss what you would like and send pictures back and forth until you are satisfied with the result. I will do my best to make you the nutcracker you requested, however if there is something I just can't do, I will let you know.

Since my nutcrackers are made from Pine, you will see wood grain in the exposed areas, like arms, face, and legs. If you don't like the wood grain, I can paint the exposed areas with acrylic paint to hide the grain in flesh tone colors. Just specify whether you want the body painted or not or if you want a little grain showing through like a whitewash or something. If nothing is said about it, I assume natural wood is good with you.

Once again, thanks for stopping by and I hope I can do business with you sometime in the future!

Refunds and Exchanges
What you buy is what you get. What I mean by that is everything is either ready to be shipped or custom made so there is no surprise when you get it, unless it is BROKEN! :( I take pride in my work and my craftsmanship, however sometimes things happen and things get broken upon shipping. If that is the case and you receive a broken doll, please let me know immediately, please send it back to me and I will reimburse you the shipping cost. I will fix the doll, and send it back to you better than ever! So be sure you like it before you buy it! There will be no refunds for CUSTOM MADE ORDERS.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love doing what I do. And I really love seeing or hearing the expressions on people's faces when they see the doll and hold it in their hands. My mom says, "the doll's are pretty in pictures, but when you see them in real life, they really are gorgeous..!"
