Extra Shipping Information
What Happened to Free Shipping?
The Doll House previously offered free shipping with all doll orders and prided itself on our all inclusive pricing. However due to the increase in demand for shipping along with tensions between the United States and China, the price of shipping has skyrocketed. In reality shipping was never "free" and must be included into the price of the product, so we had the choice to either increase the price of our dolls by several hundred dollars in order to account for the increase in shipping costs, or drop the façade of "free shipping" in order to be more transparent regarding the price increases. While we regret that we have to increase our prices, we feel that by being transparent with the shipping increases that we are being more honest with our customers.
Price changes may happen at any time, but will not affect orders that have already been received and processed. If there are other websites offering vastly lower prices, they likely haven't been updating their prices and will most-likely cancel and refund your order once they realize that they will lose money due to the shipping increases. We will be following the situation regarding shipping prices and will lower them according as the situation allows.

Delivery times can vary depending upon the complexity of the order and number of dolls ordered.
The typical times from order to construction can be up to 7-days.
Once the order has commenced production can take 7-14 days. If the Doll specification is very typical, there is the possibility that the factory may hold that model in 'floating' stock. This would reduce the production time to 1-3 days. This is of course, at the discretion of the manufacturer.
Upon completion the delivery time is typically 14-21 days.
WM-Dolls Delivery Times
WM-Dolls use high quality simulation software in order to produce the life-like body/face models using the latest environmentally safe material (TPE ThermoPlastic Elastomers.) WM-Dolls adopt an advanced unique production process, that enables the feel of smooth and delicate skin, with more elasticity than flesh, and yet, a very human skin feel and realistic visual appeal.
All materials involved in the process were compliant with National Health & Safety Standard which is harmless to human health and is environmental friendly.
Due to these reasons, the production phase can take some time.
So Customers are respectfully requested to expect a delivery time of 14-31 days from Order to Delivery for their Doll(s).
Of course customers do not want the "sex doll" on the paperwork, so the paperwork will declare the doll "mannequin(s)."
DS-Dolls Delivery Times
As we receive your order, an email confirmation is sent, confirming receipt, the doll order details, price, shipping fee and payment in the email.

For a few countries the international shipping may not give door to door service and it may go to the closest Customs clearing office to your location, which may be your nearest airport. If this is the case, when the doll arrives you will be contacted by the shipping company. Of course customers do not want the "sex doll" on the paperwork, so the paperwork will declare the doll "mannequin(s)."
