Why do reborn dolls cost so much?
Reborn dolls have a higher cost than store bought dolls for many reasons. The first being that the supplies to make these dolls are high. Then the artist charges for their work and the quality of their work. These dolls take many, many hours to make and you have to factor in all of the work the artist is doing into the cost.
View the supply pricing breakdown below.
Remember this does NOT include the cost of the work of the artist.
Supplies Cost (CAD)
Packing Supplies (box, ribbon, tissue etc) $10-$15
Outfit $15-$30 each
Rooting Needles $15
Cable Ties $3
Eyelash Hair $4

TOTAL = $342 (on the low end)
Remember, this is the total cost of SUPPLIES and does NOT include the artists time, quality of work or any extras.
These dolls take weeks and weeks to make and once you factor in the artists work you can see why the total cost of these dolls makes sense.
