Caring for Dolls

How should I clean and help preserve my Glitter Girls and accessories?

We’re really glad you want to take good care of your Glitter Girl and her things. For doll faces and bodies, gently wash the surface until clean with a wet, soapy cloth, and then air dry at room temperature. For clothing and accessories, spot clean with cold water and a mild soap, and then air dry. Do no put any GG doll, clothing, or accessory in the washing machine, dryer or near any direct heat source.

How should I care for my dolls’ hair?

For best results, it is recommended to use a wire brush.

  1. Divide doll’s hair into small sections and gently brush them one at a time. Make sure to brush out the tangles starting from the bottom of the hair and then moving up.
  2. Mist doll’s hair lightly with water from a spray bottle if you are having a hard time detangling it.
  3. If doll has wavy hair, be very gentle when brushing the ends, as this will help preserve the curls.
  4. For tight curls, finger style the doll’s hair. Separate a small section of the hair and work your fingers through it, twirling as you go.
  5. For braided styles, tightly braiding the doll’s hair while damp will help control frizzy ends.
  6. Avoid using styling products like gel or mousse, as this may permanently damage the doll’s hair.
  7. Avoid using a blow dryer, hot rollers, curling or straightening iron.
  8. Always keep doll’s hair away from extreme heat.

Why are GG dolls and accessories made in China? +

Our toys are designed in Canada and the USA, and then manufactured in China.

Affordability is one of our priority. Our production partners in China allow us to offer our high-quality dolls, doll clothing and accessories at prices most can afford. We have strong relationships with our production team overseas. We also conduct random on-site audits of factories to ensure the highest standards are met in manufacturing and in employee health, safety and human rights.

Who is Battat? +

Battat is a family-run business based in Montreal, Canada, and Plattsburgh, NY, that has been making family-focused products for over 100 years. Through innovative thinking, unique design and a steadfast commitment to safety and reliability, Battat has created some of the world’s favorite toys.

Is it fun to work at GG? +

Working at GG is the coolest experience! We work hard over many months to get our product to be just right, in hopes that girls all over the world will enjoy playing with this dazzling line. We get to be creative all day long and immerse ourselves into this wonderful doll world. Often times we have to remind ourselves that GG and her friends are make believe!

The Environment

Are your packages recyclable? +

YES! Actually, we’re so glad you’re asking! We have been relentless in choosing the most recycled and recyclable materials we can to package our toys. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. It’s a way of life around here. We plan everything for reuse from the very beginning. Of course, that all starts with using recycled materials. All of our boxes are made from recycled paper that is easily recycled again. Where possible, we create packaging that doubles as a toy. (We hear our boxes make great closets. Didn’t you need a place for all these outfits?) Next, we make sure all our packaging is recyclable. All of our boxes can be recycled again and again and again. And the plastic that holds our toys in place so they arrive at your house safely? We’ve carefully chosen and invested in #1 PET plastic because it’s the most easily and widely recycled, and is even able to become polar fleece in its next life. (Meaning today’s package could become tomorrow’s mitts). On top of all that, the inks we use in our packaging are soy-based and our varnishes water-based, which are a lot better for the environment. As you can now tell, we poured our hearts into making as little impact as possible on our planet. We wouldn’t have it any other way. (And we know you wouldn’t either).

Are your toys recyclable? +

We make our dolls, fashions and accessories sturdy, so they can be collected and saved, or recycled the good old-fashioned way – by being passed from one girl to another. Tired of an outfit? Consider having your friends over for a GG swap. You can all bring outfits you’ve had for a while and trade them for outfits your friends have had for a while. Suddenly, what’s old is new!

Safety

Are the GG dolls and their accessories safe? +

Rest assured that all GG dolls, fashions and accessories go through stringent testing procedures that meet or exceed all U.S. safety standards, all regulations regarding age guidelines, all Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) directives and guidelines, and all regulations of the American Society for Testing and Materials. We then retest products with our own engineers, both on-site during the manufacturing process and again before they are shipped from the factory. Tests, tests and more tests. We take safety very seriously!

I have a safety concern. Who do I notify? +

We want to hear about any concern or safety thoughts you might have. Please fill out the following form, here: www.battathelp.com with the words SAFETY ISSUE in the subject line so we can make it our first priority.

Be sure to include as much information as you can, including required fields, in order to receive a response. Please note that response times vary depending on the time of year, however you can expect a 2-3 business day turnaround in most cases.
