Who We Are:
BAVAS International is a small business specializing in doll repair kits and supplies based in the Midwest. The business began in 2009 on eBay. Over the following years we received PowerSeller and Top Rated Seller status and have received over 2000 positive reviews (and counting!). In 2011 we launched this website and our business continues to expand. We are an independent company not affiliated in any way with any doll manufacturing company. All trademarks and copyrights belong to their respective companies.
Who We Help:
Whether you are an experienced collector, or just a mom who just needs to repair her child’s favorite doll, we are here to help! You will find that our products will help you repair your doll a lot cheaper and faster than sending it off to a doll repair company or hospital.
Our mission is to provide you with high-quality doll repair merchandise with lighting-fast low-cost (or free!) shipping and excellent customer service. If you have any doubts about our commitment to this, just visit our eBay page at www.ebay.com/usr/bavas*international to read some of the glowing 2000+ positive feedback messages we have received. Since we don't have to pay eBay a commission when you buy an item from our own website, you can enjoy the same quality merchandise we offer over there, but at a lower price here.
