My Collection Part Three: J-Dolls

Well, here we are again, finally! J-Dolls are discontinued now, but they were made by the same company that makes Pullip dolls. They have the same bodies as the Pullip #3 and #4 types. J-Dolls are 27cm tall, and I find them to resemble Momoko dolls the most in the doll world. These are only four out of my collection; the rest will get photographed at a later date. They're all wearing their original dresses, except for Lindsay, who I bought nude. Lindsay also has a new wig, because hers was pretty dry. Lindsay and Anni's shoes are both from Momoko's line.

I printed out the new walls and floor with the new color printer that Mr. BTEG bought me as a birthday present. Do your loved ones find you hard to buy gifts for? Mr. BTEG and my daughters feel that way about me.


Total dolls: 15

  1. The dolls are so pretty. I didn't know about them so thanks for the information.

    Your husband was very nice to buy you a printer. My husband is imaginary and he never buys me anything (laugh). I usually tell my family to give me gift cards and then I can purchase what I want. I have a friend who hates getting gift cards but they are my gift of choice.

    1. We used to give our nephew gift cards when he was in college, and we gave a young friend a Steam gift card for Christmas last year (Steam is a place where you can buy games for your PC.) Usually we try to give something specific, though.

  2. Oh, that printer was a thoughtful gift indeed! I love your J-Dolls; they do look a little like Momoko, now that you mention it.

    1. Yep, they do look kind of similar, and they can share clothes and shoes, which I like, because J-Doll shoes usually don't hold together well. In my opinion, though, the inset eyes give J-Dolls an edge.

      I'm looking forward to finding out what all I can do with the printer. It's already nice to have more choices for backgrounds.

  3. Your dolls look beautiful. The blue/teal haired one is my favourite, but the others are beautiful too. I also love your new backdrop, with the blue gingham wallpaper and the white panels. Is that type of wall called Wainscot?

    The printer is a great gift indeed. I don't have a color printer, my parents bought me the one I have now when I started college, but it's black and white. I was talking to Mr. Monster about buying a color one, but that's way down on our priority list, since we still need to buy other things for the house first.

    When it comes to gifts, I feel that I'm quite simple, but others seem to feel that I'm hard to please. I come to the conclusion that those that feel that I'm hard to please are simply not listening or have no real interest on what I really want. Mr. Monster always hits the nail when it comes to what I want though (that's how I knew he was the one, hahaha).

    Hope yo have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thanks for your compliments on the dolls and the background. The white panels are indeed called wainscot, or wainscoting.

      Mr. BTEG and I have bought a lot of things for our home over the past couple of years, so it's time to buy some fun items too. Sometimes Mr. BTEG has been good at buying gifts for me, but this time it was just lucky for him, as he was going to order the printer anyway, and I said it could be my birthday present.

      I hope you enjoy what's left of your weekend!

  4. I guess I thought Momoko had bigger feet than J-Dolls. I'm surprised. I have a really nice printer Ken bought for me that I have never set up! One of these days I'll get it going and make some miniatures with it.

    1. I have some Momoko pumps that I kind of have to fit around a J-Doll's foot, but everything that I've bought so far fits. It would be fun to have a Momoko and be able to do direct comparisons, but they're too expensive for me to buy one just for that.

      I hope that you get your printer set up! It's fun to have the capability to create some stuff for your dolls that way.

  5. Happy birthday! What a great gift, and you used it for your doll diorama already, the walls and floor look beautiful. The J-dolls are lovely, and they do have the same petite look as the Momoko dolls have, which I love. :)

    1. Thank you! Yes, I couldn't wait to get started getting new things printed. There are office stores here which will print items for you, but the people that work at them, at least around here, can be kind of grumpy, and there isn't an office store particularly close.

      "Petite look" is a good way to describe J-Dolls and Momokos. Have you ever had a Momoko on your wish list?

    2. I would love to have some Momoko dolls, but they are so expensive, especially with shipping and custom costs added. I really like the Snow White Momoko, and she's kind of still on my wish list, but I haven't sought after her lately. When the J-Dolls first came out, I wanted a few, but somehow I never got around to buying them.

    3. Momoko dolls are definitely expensive! I bet there are some for sale in Europe second hand, though. That Snow White Momoko dolls is very pretty. She looks like she stepped out of her own fairy tale.

      J-Doll retail prices are pretty expensive too, but since they weren't/aren't as popular as Momoko, you can find them at better prices.

  6. That's one big printer! You'll be able to do lots of fun things with that.
    I really like your j dolls. I always plan on buying one but whenever I have money, I forget about them or can't find any.
    My parents always give money for birthdays and Christmases. My husband used to have a lot of trouble buying for me, but at the moment he's got a list of books I want and buys me those.

    1. This new printer is a lot bigger than the black and white printer that we already owned, but the ability to print in color is just so useful. I'm even thinking about printing my own fabric, once I print more paper things and get to know the printer better.

      I like having my J-Dolls, but I bet they're harder to sew for than your bigger dolls. It would be fun to see what you would do with one, but if you're meant to have one, I think you'll find one eventually.

      I have lists of gift ideas at various places, but I made the mistake once of throwing a few things for my niece on my own list. It was clearly marked on Amazon from my view, but I guess notes don't show up when the list gets sent to someone outside of Amazon, so my sister-in-law bought me one of those things. So now my family is too afraid to use my lists, even though I've said that I've cleaned them up. :(

    2. If you do try printing fabric, try a few different kinds. The ink will show up with different amounts of vibrancy and bleed depending on the fibre and weave of the fabric. But I found the big issue with home computer printed fabric is that the ink tends to run if it gets wet. Although if it's for dolls clothes, that you can get away with vacuuming instead of washing it's ok. There's other ways to waterproof the ink but they're pretty hit and miss in my experience.

    3. Thank you for the information! I think fabric printing will definitely be a big learning process, but I'd love to be able to print out my own fabric. Although here in the States, we have Spoonflower, which will print out your fabric designs for you. The extra cost would be a trade-off to not having to mess around with getting the print right myself.

  7. Hi Barb!
    Happy Birthday! Sorry the wishes are late, but better late than never. :) I haven't seen these dolls before, so thanks for the intro. I really like Rachel, she's gorgeous.
    That printer looks like a real giant compared to mine, aren't some thoughtful, it's a perfect gift!
    Big hugs,

    1. Thank you! Rachel's hair is very pretty, and I love the color of her eyes.

      Mr. BTEG informed me that the printer is so big because it's also a scanner and can print double sides. So I guess that's why people are saying that it's extra large. It was indeed a great gift.

  8. I love the blond girl with the tan, she's very pretty.
    I hope you had a great birthday, belated best wishes!
