Special Order Dolls and Puppets
To see a full screen image of any doll or puppet, simply click on the their photo.
All of our orders are special orders, as we make each doll and puppet to
order. Even if you choose Cinderella or Little Red Riding Hood, we will
ask you what skin tone, hair color, eye color, and dress colors you prefer.
However, sometimes people are looking for a huggable cloth doll who looks like
their child, or a hand puppet to match a story that they wrote, or even a
completely new creature all together. This is how the first Yoblitt came
into being, as well as the first Selkie. We happily try to accommodate such
requests. The simplest are ones where we can adapt existing patterns, for
instance a doll based on an Australian fairy tale with two little girls could
use a basic Cinderella pattern, but with different clothing, skin and facial
features. We usually
fill such requests in our regular 2-3 weeks. Sometimes characters require
a whole new pattern, such as the Selkie did. This takes more time (4-6 weeks), and
frequently requires more materials. And don't forget, no matter what doll or puppet you order, they
will always be a unique, signed, huggable creation made specially for you.
Some previous special order characters include:
- How to place a special order:
- Create a character (a story character, a friend, a child, a pet, etc.)
- Choose a format (hand puppet, double sided doll, pouch doll, etc.)
- Choose a skin tone:
- Choose a fur color if an animal.
- Choose a general color scheme. Would you like blue clothes, pink clothes,
purple clothes? We will work with you to choose specific fabrics and patterns
when you call.
- Choose facial features: drawn or plastic eyes, sewn or drawn nose.
Don't forget to select eye colors.
- Choose hair color and style if applicable: long or short, straight or curly, pony tail(s), braids or loose.
- Contact us by phone (650) 996-2280 or e-mail us at
Realms of Gold to place your order. We will create a detailed
description of your special order, calculate the total cost (including shipping and
handling and tax if applicable) and provide you with a purchase order number and
shipping date. If we can use an existing base pattern, the doll or puppet
will usually cost the same as those on our other pages, $18-$60, and will
usually ship within 2-3 weeks of receipt of payment. If the character
requires me to design an entirely new pattern, the character will cost
$75-150, depending upon size and complexity. New designs
ship within 4-6 weeks of receipt of payment. All payments and ship
dates are confirmed by e-mail.
