Frequently Asked Questions and Pricing
Hi I'm Karon...
Your child's artwork is my inspiration to craft a soft, huggable toy. I will reproduce the design as close as possible using colorful soft fabrics. These custom made soft toys are one of a kind.
I have been a crafter for over 30 years. My hobbies are crafting, sewing and crocheting - usually with my own designs. My craft designs have been featured in national publications.
I have made numerous toys for children and I love seeing them smile with that first big hug.
All DoodleHugs are proudly made in the USA.
If you have any questions or special requests please contact Karon at Karon@doodlehugs.com.
How much does it cost?
Prices start at $65 and up, depending on complexity and details in the child’s drawing along with the size of the soft toy. Please email Karon at Karon@doodlehugs.com and attach a copy of the child's drawing for a quote or use the Request a Quote Form. Shipping charges (postage and handling) are $10 for U.S. destinations. For international destinations, a shipping quote will be supplied.
How big is the soft toy?
Usually around 12 to 20 inches wide or long.
How do I send the drawing to you?
You can upload an image of the drawing (jpg, gif, pdf files only) in the Request a Quote Form or you can send it as an attachment to Karon@doodlehugs.com.
How long will it take?
From two to six weeks after payment is processed. Rush orders are possible, but there will be an additional cost which I will quote to you.
What are the toys made of?
I use a wide range of fabrics that include cotton solids and prints, fleece, felt, flannels, other embellishments, etc. The toys are stuffed with new, hypoallergenic 100% polyester fiberfill. Not intended for children under 3.
What if I’m not happy with the DoodleHug?
Refunds are not provided as these are custom designed one-of-a-kind items. However, once you receive the DoodleHug, if there is a problem, you are welcome to contact me and I will try to make adjustments. Additional charges may apply.
Can I specify the fabrics I want or can I send you some fabric (an old favorite piece of clothing or blanket) to be used in the soft toy?
Sure, if it is a fabric I think I can work with, I will be happy to incorporate it.
