“Early in 2011, my twin sister Linda and myself - along with our husbands Phil & John - joined forces to create ‘The Cradle’ through which we produced and marketed our very own reborn kits. Linda sculpted the originals and I reborn the prototypes so that customers could see what they may look like when completed. The resulting CradleKits, which were 100% finest German quality, were available for purchase through a completely new web site at”

“Since April 2012 I and my husband have ceased to be directly involved with The Cradle, but Linda and John have taken the business forward and I have continued to reborn most of The Cradle prototypes. Shown below are my reborn versions of all of these CradleKits.”

“More recently Phil and I have been separately operating as a UK dealer for The Cradle and following my successful sale of Linda’s latest Tippi, Penny, Anna, Mia, Ellen, Lily and Catrin prototypes now look forward to receiving more kits to be available for sale ourselves. These will be obtainable via eBay - along with a range of other available items - including highest quality Fine Art Glass Eyes from Lauscha in Germany.

These kits are manufactured in Germany using top quality vinyl.
Although as with all reborn vinyl kits, we cannot actually recommend the use of the oven to use Genesis Heat set paints, Helen has used these paints using an oven with care in a well ventilated room away from the family kitchen. This vinyl will also colour beautifully with air dry paints.
