What is a Ball-Jointed Doll?
A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. In contemporary usage when referring to modern dolls, and particularly when using the acronyms BJD or ABJD, it usually refers to modern Asian ball-jointed dolls. These are cast in polyurethane synthetic resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic.

The modern BJD market began with Volks line of Super Dollfie in 1999.

I am posting this here because this club is somewhat related to youtube (BJD collectors on youtube).

I know that the timing seems strange, but I assure you that this is not a foolish April fools joke, as I do not personally participate in April Fools, If you have noticed the abuse of copyright policies against content creators on youtube, including those in the anime community such as Misty Cronexia, The Anime Man, and Lost Pause, please watch this video and sign the online petition no matter if you are a youtuber or not! Please help me protect this amazing source of information and entertainment that we all love.

drowranger (2 months ago) #7974792I can link some stuff if you guys want. I was just suddenly made moderator some years ago without notice from the creator or admins, so I felt rather nervous about doing any editing to the stuff here. But I can happily add some of the new bjd entries to the 'related items' list.

annjoo (2 months ago) #8020701I agree. Since the name of the club is "Ball-Jointed Dolls" I think we should keep it about dolls with the ball-joint system.

You're probably right.

drowranger (2 months ago) #8019456I could only find 3 in the database, but I added them anyway. I sort of think that resin bjd should be the main focus though, since there are already clubs for vinyl dolls (Volks DD, Azone, etc. ).

kurokitty-mimi (2 months ago) #8005241I also think SFD (seamless figure doll) should be added to the list of terms.
