Nina's Dolfi is here!

My daughter Nina has saved all her money to buy this limited edition Japanese doll called a Dolfi.

These are resin dolls that are jointed to move into any position with hand painted faces and custom eye color. This one is 18" tall. They are shockingly expensive. Some sell for several thousand dollars. This is one of the cheaper ones and it was close to $400. It took almost 2 months to get here and it comes naked. This is a boy doll! Very androgenous, just like the male anime and manga characters. My daughter is extatic.
The nice thing is Nina has become extremely interested in sewing. For the last week in preperation for the dolls arrival she has been making clothes, learning how pants and shirts are made. She has so many costumes that she has designed for the anime characters she draws. Now she wants to learn how to make them.


  1. Oooooooo.... Now I am jealous... You've seen "Wicked", are going to see "Spamalot" and now Nina has a Dolfi! What fun!!! Denise at has some really good tips about sewing for dolls. You may have to poke around the site a bit, but it's worth it. Sewing for dolls (especially fashion dolls) is not always like sewing for humans but can be just as rewarding. Enjoy!

  2. I've heard of these dolls! You're right--very anime-inspired.
