Our brushed yarn tails are handmade in our studio and have a strong, flexible wire armature which fits securely into the stand socket at the base of the Smart Doll's back . Because they are handmade, they may be minor differences between items or small imperfections. Although we try to represent the colors as best as possible the colors shown may appear different due to differences in dye lots and computer monitor settings. If ordering multiple matching tails - leave a note during checkout requesting the materials used come from the same dye lots. Tails are made-upon-order so please allow for manufacture time which varies based on the number of items ordered.
