PUDDLE’s gift bag items, treasure drawings, and contest prizes are all generously donated by our wonderful sponsors. (When you donate items worth at least $25, you get your name or shop name on our Sponsors list!)
Can’t decide what to donate? Here is a list of things we REALLY love to get:
- Small items for gift bags (up to 144 each — if you can’t do a full 144 items, sets in multiples of 5 help us out the most, but we will accept any quantity!), such as
- Hair clips, headbands, other headwear or accessories for dolls
- Individual outfit pieces (underwear, skirts, socks, hats etc.)
- Doll-size toys and stuffies
- Photo props (think Rement)
- Medium identical items for door prizes (minimum 8, maximum 150)
- Cases of Rement
- Gashapon or blind-box figurines
- Groove stationery
- Bigger items for treasure drawings, contest prizes, or other purposes:
- Outfit sets for Groove dolls
- Individual boxes of Rement and similar miniature-prop sets
- MIO Kits, doll customizing supplies (like wigs and eyechips), or bait Groove dolls
- Nude, redressed, full stock, or NRFB Groove dolls
- Custom Groove dolls in any condition
- Monetary donations, especially for website upkeep – it costs about $9 per month.
