Dolfie...should I get one...?

Super Dollfie (スーパードルフィー ,Sūpā Dorufī), often abbreviated SD, is a brand of ball-jointed doll, or BJD, made by the Japanese company Volks. They are cast in polyurethane resin, a porcelain-like, hard, dense plastic. The most common standard models are about 60cm, or 2 feet, tall, taller and heavier than most comparable Western dolls. They are designed in a style which is both realistic and influenced by anime, and most models are anatomically correct. The various body parts have ball joints for articulation, and are strung together with a thick elastic cord.

The term "dollfie" is a contraction of the words "doll" and "figure". The original Dollfie dolls are Barbie sized vinyl figures, and the term "Super Dollfie" was introduced to distinguish the larger resin dolls. Super Dollfie, or even just Dollfie, are sometimes erroneously used as a generic terms to refer to BJDs made by other companies. However, both Super Dollfie and Dollfie are registered trademarks and should only be used for Volks products.

When we talk about Dolfie, We`re not talking about $100-$200 toys/dolls (Just like what Alan said in his blog, :p). These dolls can cost you around BND800.00~BND1500.00!!


Super Dollfie dolls are made to be easy to customize. The hair is a wig that can easily be changed. The head can be opened to change the eyes and adjust the stringing. The face paint can be removed and the head repainted. Optional hands and feet are available, and heads and other body parts are removable and interchangeable. The resin parts themselves can be carved or sanded to reshape them.
