Doll Show 55 SpringDoll Show 55 Spring

dollbyndollbyn1 month agoMisc
The cold weather is retreating and spring is nearly upon us. What better way to greet the incoming season than with the official Spring Doll Show? It was held on March 10th and many companies have revealed what's in store for doll fans. Some companies couldn't make it, but others had some cool things to share!

What is the Doll Show?
It is essentially an event for creators and companies alike to show and sell dolls and doll items. It's held multiple times a year since 1998 in Tokyo. There is usually one show per season and it is numbered (next one will be Doll Show 56 Summer!). It is often a chance for companies to show off soon to be released items and what they have in store for the future.

How do I find news/pictures for the Doll show?
This can be tricky! If you have enough patience, doll news sites like The Dolly Insider (my personal favorite!) will often give you the full rundown for multiple companies along with pictures. If you don't want to wait, your best bet is searching tags on Twitter! #ds55 will get you a ton of posts, but also add the company or type of doll like #azonejp or #momokodoll when searching to narrow it down to what you'd like to see! You can also go to company twitters directly (like Azone International) and see things that way!

I'm a big fan of Azone International, and there seems to be a lot to be excited about:

- The blonde version of ITEM #805234 was sold as an exclusive to this show.
- The next major EX-Cute line is going to be magical girl themed and starts with a pink-haired Koron! It's going to be exciting to see how creative they go with it.
- Another Marshmellow Rabbit will be joining ITEM #761186, ITEM #761185, and ITEM #805234 but it will be a little different as it's a collaboration with Obitsu!
- More additions to the Alice's Tea Party pureneemo line! Two new boy characters will be a boy version of Alice and the Cheshire Cat, and Raili will be a red-haired March Hare!
- Another Kinoko Juice collaboration which seems to be a brighter, pinker version of ITEM #644702
- Although not the first time it's revealed, a 1/6 version of Enma Ai with inset eyes will be released sometime in the summer! ITEM #806389

Are you excited for anything announced at Doll Show 55? Anything you are hopeful for at Doll Show 56 Summer slated for June 9th?

Busty (1 month ago) #53874969too much good stuff this time! D: i saw they're making new picconeemo bodies, i'm pretty excited for more info about that.

I kind of just want the hands, haha I have the Sahra A la Modes and while I live my girls the giant hands seriously bug me. It’s cute for the lil fairy series and makes since, but not for this one in my opinion.

I follow Mes Crazy Experiences on youTube and she was kind enough to make a video of all the pictures that she took there. I absolutely fell in love with Ruruko, and want her so bad. I would want to change her eye color though.... pets works doesn’t sell just their blank faces though

For sure! There was a variety of new things to be really excited about. The new Picconeemo bodies do look nice, it seems like there's now a version with slightly smaller hands? Or perhaps I missed that body type as I don't collect too many piccos, lol.

I hope they announce more clothes for Pureneemo in summer, especially mature outfits a la ITEM #154598. I'm also hoping that they decide to make some tan girls after selling the bodies last year!
