Pullip Dolls - Introduction

My article from Open The Toy blog  Photos and dolls credit to my wife Akane*

Pullip is an Asian fashion doll series that has been gaining popularity locally in recent years. The main characters in the Pullip line are Pullip (the main doll), Taeyang (male doll and Pullip's boyfriend), Dal (Taeyang's little sister) and Byul (latest doll, Dal's best friend).
Update: A new doll, Isul (Pullip's little brother), was added to the family early 2011.

Pullip Papin. Her stock wig has been changed to this.

A stock Pullip doll already has many playable features like eyes that can glance left/right and eyelids that can close, giving the appearance of sleeping or winking. (Dals and Byuls do not have closing eyes though.)

Pullip owners will go one step further and change the stock body to one that has more articulation and can pose better. The most popular bodies are Obitsu. They have good articulation and, more importantly (at least to me!) changeable hands.

Without these grabby hands, Pullips wouldn't be able to eat! =P

More hand uses.

Dangerous use of these hands!  =O

Most owners will also change the wigs (hairstyle and colour), eyechips (eye colour and details) and makeup to make their doll uniquely their own and OOAK (one of a kind).
