How to: Make a Magnetic Pacifier for Your Reborn

For ultra-realistic reborn dolls, adding a pacifier can make your baby doll look even more lifelike. A magnetic pacifier will give the reborn the appearance that it is sucking the pacifier like a human infant. Modifying a reborn pacifier is as easy as purchasing a baby pacifier and some strong magnets, then assembling the pieces. Learn how to modify a reborn pacifier in the 5 steps below:

  1. Find an appropriately sized baby pacifier. The baby pacifier should be about a size 0+, which will be proportional to a newborn-sized reborn doll.
  2. Cut off the plastic nipple from the baby pacifier with a craft knife or scissors.
  3. Using strong adhesive, like E6000, attach an extra strong magnet to the back of the pacifier and cover with a piece of soft cloth so that the magnet doesn’t scrape against the painted lips of your reborn doll.
  4. Note: if your reborn has already been assembled with a magnet in the head, be sure to align the magnet with the head before gluing to be sure that the correct side is facing out when glued to the pacifier.
  5. If your reborn baby doll requires a magnet in its mouth to hold the pacifier in, then you’ll need to insert the magnet inside the head, usually detaching the head and inserting through the neck. Holding the finished pacifier against the head will attract the magnet when you are inserting it and hold it in place while the glue dries. Once glue is completely dry, complete assembly of your reborn doll.

Spreading the Love This Holiday Season

Spreading the Love This Holiday Season

This past holiday season, we donated many of our dolls to the "Adopt A Senior" organization. Providing many elders, including Maria in the photos we're sharing, with dolls gives them a sense of joy and makes them feel less alone around the holidays. Our friends at Adopt-A-Senior organization told us the seniors faces lit up when they receive a baby doll and nothing makes us feel better than that!

Sealed with a Kiss 💋

The first doll of January 2019 has arrived... and she's ready to give you a kiss! Inspired by the sweet sentiment of “Grandma Kisses”, we created a doll with UV color changing kisses! When our product development team was brainstorming for our 2019 dolls, they wanted to create dolls that were fresh, exciting and something our customers had never seen before. They came up with many ideas including this adorable girl, Sweet Kisses!

A lot of work goes into creating the personalized charm. After an order is placed with Paradise Galleries, your special request is set to an engraving company. Each Wings of Love figurine can be personalized with up to 3 lines of engraving on the silver-toned heart. From there, each charm is carefully taken to their in-house personalization department; then the magic happens.
