16. How do you feel about the reborn doll industry?
What excites you and what upsets you? I Think it is amazing and has a great following! I do not like it when kits are not unique or ordinary, nor do I like the continued counterfeit kit production overseas. Very Unfair to the artists and the hard work put into each kit.

I feel it has come a long way! Love seeing the changing and growing following!

18. Do you think that this industry has a long-term future, or do you think it’s just a fad that will blow over?
I think it will be lasting as long as the artists continue to keep the kits fresh, exciting and new.

I am slowing down on silicone production and mainly focusing on vinyl kits and custom one of a kind babies.

20. Do you have something new in the works?
I am working on a custom baby right now and have plans for a finished doll by Christmas 2019, as well as another new proposed business targeted toward toddlers.
