home all listings how it works our schedule selfies FAQ

What size animal do I need?
SMALL is typically about 10″ tall and not weighted.
PREEMIE is made to your baby’s actual height and weight, 0 pounds up to 4 pounds 15 oz.
FULL TERM is made to your baby’s actual height and weight, 5 pounds 0 oz. and up

Is this going to be the same size as my baby?

No, although the animals are the same height within half an inch, and the same weight within 0.2 ounces, these are animals, not babies. Therefore, they will still be shaped like a fluffy stuffed animal, and will likely be larger in girth than your baby was.

How many clothing items do I need to send?
One “clothing item” is considered a sleeper, or an outfit.
SMALL bears can be made with one clothing item.
Other small animals, send 2-3 clothing items.
PREEMIE animals need 3-6 clothing items.
FULL TERM animals need 6-8 clothing items.

What if I don’t have that many clothing items?
You can also send blankets, sheets, or fabric.
Or, you can purchase a fabric add-on so that I can purchase your fabric for you.
If you don’t send enough clothing items, I will fill in with a coordinating solid color fabric.

Do you send back scraps or unused clothing items?
Absolutely. We send back all scraps larger than 2 inches, as well as all unused items.

What if I’m uncomfortable sending my baby’s clothing?
You can rest assured that your clothes are taken care of in a clean, smoke-free, pet-free home.
If you are not comfortable with sending clothing items, I do also offer gifts made without clothing items such as this bear and this babydoll.

What is your current turnaround time?
Approximately 10+ weeks.
After you order, I’ll message you with your order number, and you can keep track of our progress with our schedule.

How will you ship my items?
We ship via USPS priority mail, which takes 1-3 days after the turnaround time for our custom animals.

You will be emailed a USPS tracking number when your order has shipped.

How much is shipping?
U.S. shipping is included in all prices.
International shipping is calculated at checkout.

Do you make other animals?
Please message us on Etsy with custom animal requests.
In general, we are not making new animals at this time due to high order volume & long turnaround time.
However, I may add new animals in the future, or if there is high demand for a certain animal.

What is the smallest and largest animals you have made?
The smallest animal we have made was just 5.5 inches and less than 1 pound.
The largest animal we have made was 33 inches and 26 pounds.

Are these toys?
No, these memory bears are meant as keepsakes rather than toys.
They look perfect sitting on a shelf.
They are handmade, machine sewn, and also have hand-sewn elements.

Most animals have plastic safety eyes and nose, which are secure, but could become detached with rough play. The weighted animals contain small steel beads. Although these beads are enclosed in a bag inside of the animals, but could still pose a choking hazard.
Please use supervision and common sense.
