How Chinese New Year Will Affect Your Sex Doll Order

How Chinese New Year Will Affect Your Sex Doll Order

As you may know, nearly all sex dolls are manufactured in China. This includes well-known brands like WM Doll, Piper Doll, 6YE, Irontech, etc. All businesses that work with Chinese manufacturers know about the up-coming Chinese New Year (CNY) factory shutdowns, and have to plan ahead. If you have been procrastinating in getting a doll, you may be out of luck until March 2021.

In short, Chinese New Year is the biggest national holiday in China. During this time, all Chinese factories and businesses are shut down for a week or more. In 2021, CNY begins on February 12, 2012 and lasts for 1 week minimum. How long factories are shut down is completely dependent on the management. Some factories shut down for only 1 week, and some shut down for 1-2 months. Because many workers in China move to a new city to work, CNY is the one time of the year they get to return home and see their families. Therefore, some factories will close for many weeks or months to give their workers more time to spend with their loved ones.

Knowing this, you need to plan ahead for CNY when ordering a doll. Because all factories will shut down on CNY for at least a week, most will set an order deadline. For example, if you order past a certain date, they will hold off on production until after CNY as they try to wrap up all their existing orders (before that deadline). If you order past their deadline, unfortunately, you will have to wait until after CNY for them to produce and ship your doll which can take weeks or months. During the CNY holiday, vendors will have zero contact with any of the manufacturers.

Here is what we know so far regarding CNY timelines for various brands. This list will be updated as we find more information.

Sino Doll

The deadline to place an order for completion before CNY is January 1, 2021. If you place an order after January 1, 2021, your order will be held off until after their CNY holiday. Due to the timezone difference, the actual deadline date for customers in the Western Hemisphere is December 31, 2020.

IL Doll & Hitdoll

IL Doll and Hitdoll brands are no longer accepting any international orders. They are currently relocating their factory. According to them, it will take 3 months to prepare their new factory for production.

Gynoid

Similar to Sino Doll, Gynoid’s deadline to order for completion before CNY was December 31, 2020. All orders after December 31, 2020 will be held off until after CNY.

WM, YL, & OR Doll

The deadline to order for guaranteed shipping before CNY is January 11, 2021. Jinsan (WM, YL, & OR Doll) will be closed from early February to around February 20, 2021.

Doll Forever, Doll House 168, Piper Doll

The deadlines to order a doll to be made and shipped before CNY are as follows:

1. Piper Doll TPE, Doll House 168 2019 series: 28 Jan., 2021;

2. Piper Doll Silicone: 9 Jan., 2021;

3. Doll Forever, Doll House 168 Silicone: 31 Jan., 2021;

4. Doll House 168 old series: 22 Jan., 2021.

They will go on CNY vacation on February 3, 2021. Their return date is TBA, but it may be as late as mid-March.

SE Doll

SE Doll will be closed between February 10-17, 2021. They will resume production on February 18, 2021.

6YE & HR Doll

6YE and HR Doll will be closed from January 28, 2021 to February 19, 2021.

More Brands to Come

More doll brands will be added soon as we gather more information.

Conclusion

The main takeaway is that if you haven’t already ordered before January 1, 2021, then your order will likely be held off until after CNY. When the factory is closed, your vendor will have no contact with any of the manufacturers, so if you order in January 2021, expect no responses or updates until late February or March 2021.

If your order already shipped before CNY, it will be delivered as usual UNLESS it is still in China. All couriers including UPS and Fedex in China will be closed during CNY for one week.

Note: In-stock dolls outside of China (i.e. in the US) are not affected by CNY.

      Hi J,
      If it is already in your country, then it should arrive soon. I’m not sure how long UPS shipping takes in Canada, but CNY won’t affect it in Canada. It may be delayed by customs.

      Hi J,
      Depending on the brand, it probably shipped already or will ship before CNY. Ask your vendor to be sure.
