So how long is that??
So if everything goes well and there are NO delays, we can usually ship out 8-9 months from our initial pre order opening. However, with current logistics issues it is more likely to be 9 - 12 months because there is often a delay - Covid might shut down a factory for a month, customs delays at the departure or destination port, or even courier delays at the final stages.
The timeline description above is the best case scenario, when it all goes amazingly smoothly.
Pre orders are still the best way to bring you high quality product at the best price.
We are keen to keep our prices as low as we can, but with the rise in cost of raw materials and labour costs we have to come up with other areas to save on costs. This is why we are offering pre sales - a pre sold doll means that we do not waste precious resources on warehousing or marketing. We know that a pre sold doll does not need further spend from us to help get it out the door.
But pre sales is not just good for your wallet - it's better for the planet as well. Pre sold dolls have a smaller carbon footprint because we don't waste energy warehousing longterm and we know that we can manufacture only what we have sold. No long term storage, no end of season deep discounts, no chance of any of our products going to landfill because they have not been sold.
I hope this answers some of your questions but you are always welcome to drop us an email if you need any further help!
