Bad Ebay baby

I bought 2 cheaper dolls off ebay from the same seller thinking they would be okay for my girlfriend’s daughters to play with. They were so badly made when I got them that I was too embarrassed to give them to them. ( I know, my fault for not asking questions and for better pics). I decided I would strip them and use them for practice and then make other dolls for the girls. I’m working on the first one now. When I took apart the second one today, she had a baggie of small rocks in her belly ( no wonder it was “rock hard”…lol), no weighting in the limbs and loose rocks, paper and an old paint sponge in the head. Who does that?

Who does this?? Unethical sellers who are out to make money off of someones love of a doll. They are not artists and
they obviously don’t mind stealing your money. There are quite a few things that can be used to weigh a baby correctly.
Rocks, paper, and paint sponges are not on the list.


Well I was just hired to redo an ebay reborn play doll’s hair. The wig was poor quality and was glued on backwards. It was a berenguer sleeping Mary face. It had a bit of blushing, 1/4 limbs, with original body. It was weighted rock hard and had poly pellet and sand all loose in the body. I rooted her as that was all I was asked to do. I offered to re-weight her at no extra expense but Mom said no so I respected their wishes. It killed me to give them back the doll with the sand in it. I did not put the sand back in the head.
Buyers beware… if it is cheap there is a reason for it!
