starting a small line of collectible dolls

Hi folks, I’ve thought up an idea for a line of collectible dolls and I’d like to take a stab at making them. I don’t have any design skills so I’d need to hire people to work with me. Is such a setup possible? Does anyone have some advice on where I could start looking for people to work with?

I’ve found places that will make simple plush dolls for a fee, but the dolls I want to make are a bit complicated. Probably a cloth skin but with a skeleton inside so the doll could hold different positions. On top of that clothes.

Ah, maybe I’ve bitten off more than I can chew with this question? Let me ask this instead, is it possible to hire some sort of “toy design consultant” that I can have a discussion with about whether my toy is possible? If so, where could such a consultant be found? What sort of rate might I expect to pay?

Send me a message of what you are trying to accomplish and I’ll point you in the right direction.
