Welcome Earthlings

A New Frontier of Customizing!

After 22 years of customizing it was time for me to step up and make customizing toys fun & affordable for all ages! At age 9 I was busy collecting, playing & customizing my barbies. I was fortunate to have parents that saw my potential as an artist & enrolled me in many art classes over the years.

In 2015 I was frustrated with how difficult it was to find the tools and products that I wanted to use at an affordable price & shipped in a timely manner. My husband, Seth & I worked diligently to find solutions for this 1st world problem of mine :)

After a tremendous amount of research we placed our first large order of 11 solid colors and 5 Ombre colors of High Temperature Nylon Doll Hair. When our order of 900 pounds of doll hair arrived on October 31st 2015, we immediately got to work taking pictures, creating youtube how to videos & setting up shop through Ebay.

At the time Etsy didn't offer several critical aspects of what we felt needed to be included for our online business to work. In May 2016 Etsy implemented these important selling options that allowed us to set up an Etsy shop that could not only serve our USA customers, but also our awesome International customers.

In January 2016 we added 4 new bright solid colors; and then again in April we added an additional 22 solid colors which helped balance out several of the missing bright colors, and also bringing to our store 11 much needed Natural colors for a total of 42 color options...

Our mission is to reach out to all experience levels of people in every country, by showing everyone how rerooting and customizing toys can be a true blessing in your life.

Adults and children alike discover value by being artistic. Rerooting offers a very therapeutic and methodical way to process emotions. Communities of customizers have come together all over the world through forums & group pages on Facebook and other social platforms that have formed friendships; while allowing each person to feel expressed & valued for who they are, without the pressure to be someone they are not.

At The Doll Planet, we want to make rerooting not just a craft for professionals who use it as a tool to create income, but also as a creative outlet for kids and adults to express themselves.

We bring to you a simplified product selection of colors and sizes that that make rerooting simple to learn.

1st, we determined that High Temperature Nylon is the most universal doll hair for a huge variety of custom styles & the most durable! You can use traditional methods of boil curling and heat styling, but these methods are not well known and typically require a higher skill level to create certain looks.

 

We discovered that Our Nylon handles heat above 400 degrees. Our nylon styles easily with Human styling tools like styling wands, curling irons, flat irons and crimpers. How cool is that?!

The 2nd important thing to mention is what the heck is a Hank/Skein? A Hank and/or a skein is a portion of hair. There is really no defined value for the hank size. But really, who cares right?! As a customer wanting to reroot a doll we have one question in mind....Is this hank/skein enough to reroot my doll or pony? Right?!

We have made it super simple for everyone. We took a doll from each head size, we removed their factory hair, weighed their heads, rerooted & then weighed again fully rerooted. We rounded the weight up to the nearest ounce & created our definition of what a Hank is at The Doll Planet.

MLP 0.5 oz hank is enough to reroot any generation MLP mane and tail, also perfect for Megos.

Large 1oz hank is enough to reroot any Barbie and friends

XL 2oz hank is enough to reroot any Monster High or Ever After High dolls (17" requires a Mega 5oz hank)

Mega 5oz hank is enough to reroot Blythe and Crissy dolls.

For several slightly larger heads like many Disney dolls, Tonner and Gene, you will need about 3 oz. Many of these heads are harder to reroot because of the hard scalp, so it's not as common to reroot these dolls. For these you would get 1 Large hank and 1 XL hank.

3rd, how long should my hank be? In the small world of retail doll hair, you will find long portions of hair to be quite common. However, as customizers we felt like the extra cutting, tangling & combing was frustrating to work with. For Ponies & most dolls, 18" length is more than enough.

Using the rerooting tool you fold the hair in half so you end up with a 9" hair fall length, (We do take custom requests for hair length if you need a longer length).

So now you have it! How we got started, what is a hank and our mission! We look forward to creating a lasting friendship with you & will do everything we can to make your experience at The Doll Planet fun & affordable!

This is truly a new frontier of customizing!
