Can you tell me please where I can find some of your rainbow yarn you use? I am making some dolls for my kids and my daughter is in love with rainbows. I especially love the nubby yarn. Any help would be appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Teri,

We use several different types of yarn for the hair, one that comes up a bit is ‘Mochie’. Hope this helps!

Thank you!

Hi Nicole, we aren’t doing custom dolls right now, but we all fell so in love with this one, I’m sure similar versions of her will be in future uploads ๐Ÿ™‚

YES on a waiting list!!! I already know I want to be on it ๐Ÿ™‚ XOXO

michelle - September 5, 2012 - 9:35 pm

Love the idea of the waiting list. After 2 years of trying for an LB throught all avenues a waiting list would give me another chance. One day the LB will come to live with us. Now with 2 tries a week.. We love you Bamboletta.

Kristin Z - September 5, 2012 - 9:36 pm

Please give the waitlist a try! I would be more than willing to add my name to the very top of that list. ๐Ÿ™‚

jennifer - September 5, 2012 - 9:42 pm

sounds good, but me on the wait list.

Morgan Nahanee - September 5, 2012 - 9:42 pm

You are such a thoughtful business owner. I can’t wait to be able to buy a doll from you and take a trip to the island to pick him/her up in person!

Ida Norwood - September 5, 2012 - 9:42 pm

Will this weeks upload of dolls be at 3:00 p.m. as stated on the calendar? ( I know thurs. your have a wee ones upload, just a little confused about Friday) Thanks!

Renea Pike - September 5, 2012 - 9:45 pm

Ohhh a waiting list would be amazing!!!

Ann k - September 5, 2012 - 9:49 pm

Thank you for giving consideration to a waitlist. I have 1 or 2 seemingly impossible dolls on my ” need to have” list.

Jennie - September 5, 2012 - 9:56 pm

well as always you’re so eloquent and lovely in your writing. Your love for the dolls and the homes they go to shines through your words. You’re amazing! and I’m sure like all your fans feel…Thank you for sharing and communicating the ins and outs.


Tanya - September 5, 2012 - 10:01 pm

Great ideas. Thanks for trying so many things to resolve the problems. I would LOVE the waitlist idea!!!

Adam Patterson - September 5, 2012 - 10:19 pm

I really like Shopify,

I completed a site about 2 months ago and they have had great success. The support was wonderful, let me know if you need any help.

I had to overcome a few challenging issues as well with this site but anything seems possible ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck!

Lisa W. - September 5, 2012 - 10:22 pm

A waiting list sounds great!! You are such a sweetie, always thinking of your customers!

Claire - September 5, 2012 - 10:23 pm

I think a waiting list is a great idea!

Katherine G - September 5, 2012 - 10:30 pm

Yes to the wait list!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Theresa - September 6, 2012 - 1:38 am

amazing how much thought and consideration you dedicate to your sweet dollies finding their homes. and yes, would absolutely love to be on a waiting list for a Little Buddy girl ๐Ÿ™‚

Abigail - September 6, 2012 - 2:15 am

A waiting list sounds great, my daughter is desperate for an ‘all coloury’ (rainbow) haired doll and this may be the only way we could land one!
I hope your new changes work out well for our business.

Heather - September 6, 2012 - 4:12 am

I agree a wait list would be wonderful idea to try.

Jennifer - September 6, 2012 - 4:21 am

Wait list? Yes please!! Everything sounds great!

Barbara H - September 6, 2012 - 4:31 am

All of the proposed changes sound well thought out and fabulous solutions to some ongoing problems. Love ya guys!

Brenda Bell - September 6, 2012 - 5:22 am

The new plan looks great, and I appreciate how you are having different upload times! So exciting. Lots of love xoxoBrenda

Michelle Schneider - September 6, 2012 - 6:05 am

I have yet to be able to get a doll. What is the process?
Thx, Michelle

michelle Yager-French - September 6, 2012 - 6:25 am

A waiting list for custom? Yes please!

Alma - September 6, 2012 - 6:37 am

Hi Christina,

A waiting list sounds great! I have been trying for a year and half for a doll with no luck. I’m not on facebook or twitter so I can never figure out upload times. It’s been stressful! Look forward to hearing more about your decision on the waitlist aspect.

Take care!

Erica - September 6, 2012 - 7:31 am

Great idea! I’d love to be on a waiting list as well โ™ฅ

Samantha W - September 6, 2012 - 7:40 am

Thank you for trying to make it easier for us to find our perfect dolly companions. I’ve been trying for about 9 months straight to get a Little Buddy for my daughter. I still really hope to be able to get one before Christmas but they just go so fast and I guess my Internet (or me, lol) is just not fast enough. A waiting list would be a great idea! I love what you did last week putting the dolls up on etsy that were being held in carts too. You are doing a great job Christina and your thoughtfulness toward your customers, employees and business as a whole is commendable ๐Ÿ™‚

NAJ - September 6, 2012 - 9:32 am

A waitlist?? Yes, please!!!!

Leah Killian - September 6, 2012 - 9:43 am

I think a wait list is a good idea. I like that it is a bit more spread out.

It would be nice if all the LBs went up together on one day rather than spread- simply because it is going to bring it back down to more people going for less dolls. I could never cart one until you started bigger uploads. If 100 people are all going for the same 7 dolls again- it’s impossible.

I love random etsy shop uploads ๐Ÿ™‚

Darice/Healing Gems - September 6, 2012 - 10:41 am

A waiting list would be great.

Tanya W - September 6, 2012 - 11:07 am

I always love hearing what you have to say C~ I think as a customer, we really have no idea of all the work that goes on behind the scenes in the shop!! You’ve made some great changes that I hope will make buying a doll easier on everyone (including you!). I love the idea of the frock shop being open all week too ๐Ÿ™‚

jennJK - September 6, 2012 - 2:44 pm

i would LOVE to be on a waiting list!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Jan Winters - September 7, 2012 - 10:33 am

I am really hooping that this works. I want a LB baby so badly.
I keep trying but by the time I click in everyone is in a cart.
Keeping my fingers crossed. Would really love to have one by Christmas.

Jan W - September 7, 2012 - 10:35 am

Oh yeah I forgot…….Pleaseeeeee do a wait list.

cara - September 7, 2012 - 5:30 pm

Love the waiting list idea! Sign me up! At this point I would love any LB to live in this house! 2 years & still trying! Thanks for all that you do!

Rebekah - September 8, 2012 - 9:34 pm

The changes sound like a good idea. I like the idea of a waiting list. I already have one Bamboletta for my daughter but I have 5 other children that need their companion too. We would love a to be on the waiting list if you start one.

Ying - September 11, 2012 - 8:35 am

I love, love, love the idea of a waiting list! I detest competition, so the idea of trying to pick out the doll of my dreams under time pressure and in competition with faceless others is totally off-putting. I read the blog because I love to see your dolls’ sweet faces, but I just can’t buy one under these conditions. Thanks for considering it!
