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.

Sorry to butt in to this conversation, but Fairyland isn't a good company anymore. Their doll quality is not what is use to be (unless that has changed very recently). A lot of BJD collectors LOVE fairyland, but in reality they are just not the same and it is sad because one of my firt loved dolls was an older one of Cerburus project. I always wanted a minifee. :< I have two older fairlands now, but I wouldn't touch their new stuff...

Also, Mine-kun beware Yo-SDs are addicting. XD

Ashiya (8 months ago) #2438023Sorry for my writing, tthat's kinda what I meant, that they stopped selling even at the fairyland site, though I'm still confused at the store's ordering system. I just had heard that they pulled out those molds "temporaly" but "indefinetly" :( I'm thinking there's no way to order the EL?
I even heard people say that Delf El from Fairyland "not being the same" as the EL sold from Luts (maybe people were just being purists) -.- ...He was the first bjd I ever saw and it was love at first sight, so I hope I get one some day some how.
My only bjd is a SOOM mini gem Asis, she is my favorite mold ever (another love at first sight) even if she's had like 3 owners before me, so she's far from looking/working perfect xD and it's so hard to find anything that fits her size. I have to restring her and/or suede her but I'm too scared. And I lost one hook of her extra fairy legs D: (Though I doubt I'd ever use those legs, but still)


I've been wondering as well what happened with their F60 line since I really would love to get a dreaming Lishe and a boy Rin. :D Hmm I'm not sure about that but i don't see anything difference between the two. You know you can always ask Fairyland about the availability of F60.


I don't have a doll right now but I want to get one so badly. The only thing is that I'm so torn between Sd or Yo-sd. I'm a huge Volks fan so I'm not sure about other company.

Mine-kun (8 months ago) #2436498You see Fairyland and Luts before we're kind of sister company so they have the same maker. (not sure about all the details) So they kind of split up and Fairyland got the licence to make the heads for their minifee line as well as to their F60 lines. I don't think they'll ever return again in Luts but they release again the Delf line. Though Fairyland's F60 have been sold out for awhile now.. -_- They did release the new body for girls F60 but the a la carte are still unavailable.

Ashiya (8 months ago) #2436112Thought they had stopped offering all the molds they sold on Luts, was that a temporary thing?
Unfortunately I don't have access to the market place, I mostly lurk there so, not enough posts... my bjd is from an ebay seller.

Mine-kun (10 months ago) #2336250You can still buy the headmold from Fairyland! But you can always check DOA market place. ^^

tetora (9 months ago) #2351073No problem! If you really want to make sure the clothes fit, I would suggest possibly asking the shop about the sizing of their clothes (or even asking if they'll take custom measurements).oh wow I didn't even think that was a possibility ^.^ thanks again
