Complaint: The original doll I ordered for my step-daughter in November 2013 was received and given from Santa on Christmas day 2015. By New Year the hair on the doll was frizzed and lost it's sheen despite attempts to care. After several e-mails from March to August 2014, I finally took the doll from my step-daughter through her tears and protests and returned the doll via *** to the My Twinn doll hospital with a lengthy description of my dissatisfaction of their product and replacement policies. I was contact by **** in the Doll Hospital and was told a replacement doll would be made and shipped. THe new doll was received but had the wrong color eyes. When I attempted to call, I reached a recording they were closed. I offline messaged them and received a call from *****. She said that a doll with corrected eyes would be prepared on rush and shipped on rush. I however had to return at my cost the incorrect doll I received. I asked why I had to pay to return a doll which they made the error in making and was told they had no way to credit me for shipping. I was offered and e-mail gift card which was never received. The new doll is coming in the original outfit and I wanted a different outfit. When I called to order the outfit I wanted I was told by **** that the outfit was sold out and they did not expect have it back ever again not even after Christmas. I'm disgusted with the customer service, poor quality of product and lack of inventory. I appreciate their efforts to replace the doll at no charge, but even then they processed an order with the wrong color eyes. When clearly they have the original order and photographs of my step-daughter to use in constructing the replacement.
Desired Settlement: I don't know what to ask for. They are attempting to replace the doll, but continue to botch it up. I just would like them to have some regulatory oversight from an agency such as yourself. And for them to know that they can't just bully around customers and do a shoddy job. I'm done recommending them and have shared this tale of misery with friends and co-workers. I'm very disappointed given how much my step-daughter loved/loves this doll that this company doesn't have their act together better.
Business Response: The Customer purchased their doll in November of 2013. They first wrote to My Twinn on 08/11/14 to describe that the dolls hair had become very frizzy and no amount of brushing or washing could help it. They also stated that the dolls legs had turned blue. The customer sent the doll into the doll hospital and requested a full replacement of the doll. We were very apologetic and were happy to help the customer. Our warranty period is 45 days from the date that the customer receives the order and does not include normal wear and tear of the doll, however, we were happy to assist the customer with their request. We received the doll into the Doll Hospital on 10/23/14 and created a whole new doll for the customer as she requested for no additional charge. The Customer received the doll and stated that the eye color was incorrect. They stated that they received light blue eyes and were supposed to receive the blue green as the original doll had. We apologized for the incorrect eye color and we offered to correct this mistake for the customer at no charge.On 11/13/14, we created another new doll for the customer before the return of the incorrect doll was received. The outfit that she originally wanted had recently ran out of stock. The Customer contacted us on 11/18/14, to purchase the outfit that they wanted and stated that she was very upset that we did not have it any longer. We explained that when the returned doll was received we would be happy to send the outfit back out to her at no charge. Her husband contacted us back on 11/19/14 as he was told that she was getting no help from us. We assured him that the outfit would be sent out as soon as the return had been received. We have had no further contact from the customer. We have tried to contact the customer to check in and make sure everything is okay to no avail.
Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau: I have reviewed the response offer made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below. The company insists that they made every effort to "check in" with no avail. No check in communication was made until 12/23/14, the date upon which this response was made to you. And in the effort, the representative ***** ****** called my cell phone and left a message stating that she was just now (some 5 -6 weeks later) checking in with my satisfaction. In an attempt, by both myself and my husband to return the call, we reached a recorded message advising that My Twin was closed for the holiday. Approximately 45 minutes to an hour after the initial attempt to contact me, Ms. ****** called my work phone number and I did speak to her. I relayed that - No, we never received the promised replacement outfit and I never received an e-mail from her with the promised gift card. She apologized did reference this complaint and said it would be taken care of right away. I noted for her that I could not browse her website for any additional outfits as I was at work and I work for a bank and the security on our network prevents me from certain tasks. She said it would all be taken care of right away. My husband received a UPS overnight package on 12/24/24 containing the promised outfit again some 5-6 weeks after they received the returned doll (I have postal proof of mailing with tracking and delivery confirmation). I confirm that I have an e-mail with the promised gift certificate. I will say that my step-daughter is pleased with her doll and the hair is of superior quality to the hair on the initial doll. I continue to be disgusted by their customer service and of the inability to reach a person by phone when they leave a message and by the inability to speak to a manager or anyone in a supervisory capacity. And I fulyl reject that their efforts to contact me were made to no avail as I am fully accessible on my work phone unless I am assisting a bank customer and return calls to messages left on my cell phone on my breaks or lunches. It is my Twinn not this customer that is lacking in accessibility. It is my desire at this point to simply be done with them - to have no more communication from them and to never have to discuss them again. If they had put the level of care and quality into our initial purchase doll and provided the customer care they maintain that they did this complaint never would have been made in the first place. Regards, ***** ******* *********

Complaint: I purchased two My Twinn dolls, one for each of my daughters. We received the dolls and were so surprised to see that the doll for my oldest daughter looked absolutely nothing like her and the one for my youngest was so-so. Nothing was the same. I followed the steps, submitted 3 pro pics of each girl, up close and with & without smile. My older daughter has full cheeks and full lips, the doll we got was very long faced and super skinny lips. The doll for my younger daughter was better in the face, but the hair was WAY to dark and now that I have looked through their "gallery" I see another head shape that would actually be the exact shape for my youngest instead of what they chose, which is also more narrow than my younger daughters face. I payed full price for each doll plus s&h and ear piercing, then had to pay $18 each doll ($38.00 total) to send back to My Twinn and included the receipts because they advertise that they will pay shipping up to $15 if it is "their error". They did not reimburse me a single penny. I picked out a new head shape on my own for my oldest daughters doll and requested them to paint her lips full like they naturally are. My younger daughters doll got a wig replacement although the hair came back sloppily done and the bangs cut uneven. The replacement head on the doll for my older daughter looks good, but the head is not secure and wobbles. The doll for my youngest (that had a wig replacement) came back to us with the lower left eyelash only half way glued on.The 2 dolls bodies look like they were made by different companies. Though I requested the same skin tone one has more of a glow while the other is flat and the tone is not the same, plus one has elbow dimples and the other doesn't and when they sit down one dolls legs go out and the others straddle very much even the tags are different but both are labeled My Twinn 2013. I spent so much more money than I expected and feel very disappointed with the lack of detail the artists took the first time around. I used to paint faces on porcelain dolls and know the detail that must be applied. I feel that My Twinn just wanted to pump the orders out and not take their time to be thorough. In this case I could have got an 18 inch doll elsewhere for a fraction of the price. All of this took place before my children could ever even play with their dolls! I have spoke with My Twinn customer service team many times, plus proved typed letters and emails. I was actually told that this was the only time they would fix the mistakes they made in producing the dolls, and if anything came back wrong when I received them again I would have to pay their "Doll Hospital" fee's although we had never even taken the dolls out of the box and sent them back the following day we received them.
Desired Settlement: I would like to be reimbursed for the $38.00 I spent sending the dolls back to be fixed as well as a possible discount on the dolls because they went on sale after we received them and did not get them back until the sale was over as if we ordered them during the sale. I would like the eyelash attached to the doll we received with it hanging half off. I would like to discuss a head shape for my youngest daughters doll since I see they actually have one that matches her shape but did not provide it in the beginning. Most of all I would like them to realize many mothers, like myself are not made of money and something like this is a huge investment and not just another toy. Its really about advertising properly. If they can no longer make "twins" like the old company then they should advertise that they make "friends" and not lead adults and children to believe they will be receiving this amazing doll and then have it just be mediocre.
Business Response: Like all original works of art, My Twinn advertises an artistic likeness rather than an exact replica. To get a more custom look, We require the customer to make color selections as well has selections for the hair. My Twinn requires one to three photos to be submitted for the Custom doll orders. These photos are used by our Artisans to select a face shape only, based on the overall appearance of the child. The photos are never used for color selections because photos are taken under different lighting and we can not always get a true color depiction. My Twinn has quite a few face shapes available for our Artisans to choose from. Unfortunately, customers are not provided this option when placing their orders as this is done by the My Twinn Artisans. If the customer receives the doll and is unhappy with the face shape chosen by our Artisans, we do have options for the Customer. We provide the Doll Gallery for customers to review. As they see their child everyday, they may feel that a face shape from the gallery is a better match than the one selected by our Artisans. In the case of ********* two orders. For order number ********, the Customer chose Golden Brown which was the color that was used to create the doll. Upon receiving the doll, the customer felt that the hair color was too dark. The customer stated that everything on the doll was good except the hair color and requested that we change the hair color to dark blonde. As the doll was created as ordered any changes, not a result of My Twinn’s error, would incur a charge and would not receive the $15.00 shipping reimbursement. However, as a courtesy to the customer, we did change the hair color for the customer and returned the doll to the customer at no charge. This would have been a cost of $51.95. The $15.00 return shipping reimbursement was not awarded for this order as the doll was created as the customer ordered. For order ********, the customer was unhappy with the face shape for the doll and the eye color that they selected. The customer reviewed the doll gallery and selected another face shape that they felt looked more like their oldest daughter. As a courtesy, we created a new doll with the face shape that the customer selected and changed the eye color as requested and returned the doll, again, at no charge. This would have been a cost of $81.95. A $15.00 electronic Gift Certificate will be issued for this order for the return shipping cost to the Doll Hospital. We often offer promotions and discounts for our customers. As we are not always aware of when they will become available, we honor any of our new promotions against previous qualifying orders up to 7 calendars days prior to the beginning of the new promotion date unless otherwise stated. The Customer placed her orders on 3/2/14 and 3/3/14, the sale for the custom dolls started on 03/14/14 and ended on 03/24/14. The customer’s dolls were received into the Doll Hospital on 03/26/14. Unfortunately, the customer did not fall within the specified 7 calendar days to receive the discount on the new dolls. However, as a courtesy to the customer we will honor the sale price and will include this in the electronic gift certificate being issued for the return shipping to the Doll hospital. The total gift certificate amount that will be issued is $55.00 ($20 for order ******** and $20 for order ******** and $15 return shipping reimbursement for order ********) Thank you, ******* **
Consumer Response: Hi, this is ******* ********* and I am responding to My Twinn's offer. They are offering to give me a gift certificate in the amount of $55.00 when I was asking for a partial refund in the amount of $78.00. A gift certificate will not do. I have no plans to purchase anything else from their company after this is settled. I will accept their offer of $55.00 but it needs to be in a check or direct refund to my debit card. Something traceable so it cant just "get lost in the mail." Thank you for your time. Please let me know what else I need to do to follow through with this matter. Sincerely, ******* *********

Complaint: On 11/25/2013 I mailed my grand-daughter's "MyTwinn" doll to the My Twinn Doll Hospital for hair replacement and the repair of a broken arm (which necessitated the total replacement of the doll's trunk). I was assured that the doll would arrive in time for Christmas. When the doll still had not arrived two days before Christmas, I called to inquire as to the delay. I was told that the doll had been shipped to the wrong address (my previous address in Lexington, Ky). After several weeks and several more inquires, I finally did receive the doll at my correct address in NC. The color of the skin on the doll's trunk, however, did not match the color of the doll's face so I again returned the doll to the Doll Hospital on January 20, 2014 asking them to replace the trunk with a skin color that matched that of the face. I was told that the current color of the doll's trunk was the best match available (apparently they switched body part suppliers since my original purchase), and they would return the doll to me in its current state. On Feb. 5th, when the doll had not yet arrived, I inquired about the delay and was told that once again (for the second time) the doll had been shipped to the incorrect address!! It is now March 4th and I still do not have my doll. Additional inquiries made on Feb. 18th and today reveal that MyTwinn has not as yet received the doll despite having sent a letter to the recipient's address requesting its return. They have not suggested a satisfactory resolution to this problem.
Desired Settlement: I have invested a small fortune over the years in clothing and accessories for this doll and I want it to be returned or replaced with a replica by the end of this month (March 2014).
Business Response: To whom it may concern: March 5, 2014 In the case of ***** ****, Ms. **** had sent a doll into our doll hospital for services and when the doll was completed it was shipped back to the address she had on file which was the address in Kentucky. The doll was eventually returned to us and we were able to ship it to the customer’s correct address in North Carolina. Upon receiving the doll back the customer was not happy with the new body color that had been placed on the doll and wanted to send it back into our Doll Hospital. The doll Ms. **** has is an older doll with a reddish coloring to the head of the doll. At the time the body was changed out the body coloring had been adjusted to not have the reddish tint to it. Ms. **** was made aware of this change and was told we could send the doll back to her as it was without changing the body again. The doll was shipped to the default shipping address in our system, which unfortunately was the Kentucky address. Ms. **** contacted us inquiring about her doll via chat and was told the doll was showing delivered. It was during this chat that it was discovered it had been sent to the incorrect address. We mailed a letter to the address the doll was delivered to in Kentucky to tell them we believed that a doll had been inadvertently delivered to them and asked that they contact us and we would be happy to send a pre-paid UPS label to bring the doll back so that it could be sent to the correct customer. As of today, 3/5/2014, we have had no contact from this address. In the chat yesterday Ms. **** had with *******, we offered to send another letter to the address requesting that they contact us regarding the doll. The chat was disconnected by Ms. **** before ******* could offer for her to pick a new doll from our existing Adopt a Friend or our Vintage Friends available on our website. We would love to be able to send Ms. **** her original doll, however unless we are contacted by person(s) at the address the doll was sent to and are able to get the doll back we are not able to send her that doll back. I understand that she would like and exact replica of the doll she had, unfortunately that may not be possible. The doll Ms. **** had is believed to now be considered a vintage doll, which means it was created with components that are no longer in active inventory, and we do not have the components to create a replica. Ms. **** is more than welcome to select any doll from either the Adopt A Friend or the Vintage Friend area of our site to replace this doll. Along with the doll we are more than happy to send Ms. **** a $50.00 gift certificate. Ms. **** can contact our customer service department at 1-800-469-8946 when she has made a selection of a new doll and they will be happy to assist her in getting the order placed to have that sent out to her. Thank you, ******* ****** My Twinn Customer Service Supervisor
Consumer Response: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution would be satisfactory to me. I will wait for the business to perform this action and, if it does, will consider this complaint resolved. Regards, ***** ****

Complaint: I ordered a My Twinn doll for Christmas for my 7 year old daughter. I was so excited when I saw it sitting on my front porch. When I opened it, I started to cry. It looked nothing like her. She wanted a doll that looked just like her and this doll didn't. Imagine having to send back your child's Christmas present and her not having it to open. I shipped the doll back expecting a refund for the doll ($99) and the earrings ($14). To my surprise, only $83.85 was refunded back. I contacted customer service and was told that there was a $30 non-refundable charge to return the doll (which I did not know about). Then they took the discount off of my refund (that was a cyber Monday deal) which really only covered getting the doll shipped to me and taxes. Let's add this up. My order was $125.75 plus I had to pay $12 to ship the doll back. $137.75 was the total I put out for this disappointment. They have kept $53.90 of my money. Then I had to turn around and buy my daughter another doll because she was so upset. There went another $130. I am now out $267.75 because of My Twinn's mistake. It was also horrible costumer service by someone named *******. The only answers I received were we can't we can't we can't. Well you took the money off of my credit cared, you can put it back. I should not have to pay for this companies mistakes.
Desired Settlement: I would like the $99 for the doll, $14 for the earrings and the $12 I had to pay to ship it back. Totaling $125
Business Response: To whom it may concern: January 14, 2014 In the case of ******* *****, Ms. ***** placed an order via our website for a custom doll. She decided to return the doll to us for a refund. Marking on the return slip changed mind. We had no communication with Ms ***** that she was unhappy with the doll. Per the refund/return policy listed on the pack slip and our website, custom dolls are subject to a $30.00 non refundable customization fee. When the doll was returned to us, the fee was deducted from the price of the doll. Ms ***** used a discount code on her original order and received a percentage off her order. When the refund was processed that discount was also applied, as it would be for any order that used the code on the initial order. I have attached both the original order confirmation as well as both of the refund confirmations. I have also attached a screen shot of the refund/return policy found on our website. Based on the refund/return policy and using the discounted amount Ms ***** paid initially the refund amount she received was $83.35. After the chat Ms ***** had yesterday, in which she stated we could at least refund her $99.95. (4:10:41 PM [*******] You can refund me $99.95 at least.4:11:26 PM [*******] $69 for the doll, $14 for the earrings and $16.95 for shipping.) She was emailed and told that even though she had been refunded correctly with we were willing to refund the additional $16.00 to make her refund total the $99.95. While we understand that Ms. ***** was not happy with the refund processed for her, the refund was done correctly and we did go outside of policy to refund her the additional $16.00 she requested in the chat. Thank you, ******* ***** My Twinn Customer Service
Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:I have reviewed the response offer made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.[Provide details of why you are not satisfied with this resolution.] I was never told that they would refund me the extra $16.00. I have a copy of the online conversation I had with the customer service rep. All I was told was that they would not refund me any more money. I did not change ny mind, I called on 12/18 and spoke to a rep and stated I was not happy with the doll at all. I was told I could send it to the dill hospital but may be subject to a $60 fee to have it fixed. I should not have to pay twice. I would like the whole refund back for the doll, earrings and money I had to pay to ship it back. Regards,******* *****

Complaint: On 12/2/2013, I made an online purchase of a My Twinn doll for my granddaughter as a Christmas gift. A personal profile of my granddaughter was required and submitted, along with three electronic photos with the understanding, according to their advertisement, that the doll would be designed to look like my granddaughter with choices of her hair style and other features selected by me from the options listed on the My Twinn website. When the doll arrived on 2/17/2013, the doll did not have the hair option that I'd selected. In fact, the doll had spaces in the head where no hair existed at all and the scalp could be seen, very unacceptable. I called My Twinn today 2/18/2013 and was then told that their company could not accommodate me with the hair style that I had selected from their website and that this was impossible for them to do. In unbelief, I asked why, then, was this option on their website if it was impossible for them to do it? I was then subjected to a number of reasons for their false advertisement. The person that I spoke to in customer service admitted that this option should not have appeared on their website nor in their catalog and that she understood my feelings. I was given options to try and resolve the issue that involved my grandbaby not having her doll for Christmas with all the disappointment that goes along with that hurtful situation. They kept me waiting several times on the phone for long periods of time, finally, someone at My Twinn named ****, came and spoke to me very rudely, talking loud over me, and hung the phone up on me. Their website and catalog both offer the option that I'd selected, I was never informed that this option was not available until after I'd received the doll in the mail and gave them a phone call concerning the matter. I have all documentations of my order along with all the feelings of deception from the My Twinn company.
Desired Settlement: Make corrections on My Twinn website as well as the calalog so that no one has the same experience as I did. Train your customer service reps to be truthful and respectful to their customers with viable options so that no one has to get hurt, like myself and my grandbaby here at Christmastime, over a gift of love.
Business Response: To whom it may concern: December 19, 2013 In the case of ***** *****, Ms. ***** placed an order via our website for a custom doll. In the selections made online by the customer, she selected chin length, tight curls to be styled in Pigtails. On our website under the option of pigtails, it states “one on each side of the head”. See photo below for website wording. The wording for the hair options is the same on both our website and in our print catalog. The photo of the doll to select the hair length shows the pigtails. We do not style the hair in the photo, which from what was understood from Ms. ***** what she was wanting. At this time, we are not able to offer her the style of hair in the photo of the child provided as we do not have a wig that would allow us to do so. Ms. ***** was told that she could return the doll for a full refund if she would like to, as we are unable to offer the custom style in the photo. A pre-paid UPS label was sent to Ms. *****’s email address so that she did not have to incur any further expenses to send the doll back to us. Ms. ***** told us that she was not returning the doll and wanted a refund processed that day. We are not able to process a refund without either having the doll show tracking back to us with the label that was emailed to her or having the doll back in our facility. Once the doll is on its way back to us we will process a full refund waiving the customization fee and we will refund her shipping as well. We understand that Ms. ***** is unhappy with the hairstyle she received and does not want to be without a gift for her granddaughter for the holiday, we are willing to offer her 10% off her order should she like to keep the doll as it is, or she can return it to us for the full refund. However we would not be able to custom style the hair as in the photo. Thank you, ******* ****** My Twinn Customer Service Supervisor
Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau: I have reviewed the response offer made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below. [Provide details of why you are not satisfied with this resolution.] Regards, ***** ***** I see that Ms. ****** described the exact selection that I made of the hair style as offered on their website and in their catalog, however, she failed to mention that I did not receive this selection as explained to her over the phone. I even asked her, as supervisor, did she examine the final product before shipping it off and she told me that she didn't see the doll before it was shipped, that it was not her job to do that. The doll that I received in the mail had spaces in the head where there was no hair and the scalp could be seen and the hair is not chin length. It was from their various selections on their website and in their catalog that I chose those personal characteristics that would best match my granddaughter, had they custom made the doll for me just as they'd advertised; then I would have gotten just what I ordered but I got what I did not order and was told by Ms. ****** that it was impossible for them at My Twinn to make what they had advertised and fulfill my order. At no time did I ask Ms. ****** to use my granddaughter's picture to style the doll's hair. My request for the doll's hair was made to them on their website using their selections listed, not mine. Attached are photos of the doll that I received in the mail: The first photo is a profile of the doll with a large space on the scalp with no hair. The second photo is a back view of the doll's head with a number of bald spaces with no hair (not conducive at all to the kind of custom hair style that was advertised on their wedsite. There is a picture on the website and in the catalog that shows how the back of the head should look on a doll with two pigtails; the way that the back of my granddaughter's doll's head should have looked but didn't. The third and fourth pictures show that this doll's hair is NOT chin length and that was the clear choice that I'd made from their selection. Ms. ******'s offer for UPS return is no solution for me in regards to my granddaughter, (no one that I've spoken to at My Twinn seems to care about that) and the personal gift of love that I've made every effort to give to her. In fact, Ms. ******'s UPS offer to return the doll, days before Christmas, shows me this company's lack of human sensitivity and unkindness to the very customers and children that keep them in business; how ironic and very, very sad. I'll NEVER do this to my grandbaby, refund or not. There's nothing in Ms. ******'s offer that comes even close to human decency. I'll continue to pursue this matrer, not only to protect my granddaughter but other children, like her, with the expectations, hopes, and dreams of a twin doll and companion.
