    Default Dolfie dolls collection

    Hi I was wondering if I should start this new hobby of collecting these dolls so, how many have you collected already? Want to name them or name your favourite ones out?

    I don't collect any because it's not my hobby. But if you feel you like it then go for it. Not just because of that. These dolls are collectibles and some of them may even prove to be a luxury to you. And after some time when there's no one else producing them you may sell them as antiques for a high price or so.

    before jumping into any hobby, it's always good to find out more about it, and know what you're getting into.

    these BJDs (BallJointed Dolls)/ Dollfies don't come cheap at all.
    depending on the size and which company, you are looking at a price range of USD$250 to USD$1,000+.
    Limited editions can go to even more than US$1k.
    if you're looking for one that is less that SG$200 and bellow... when you find one, let me know too.
    technically, the chances of finding one at that price is very very rare.

    there isn't a physical shop in singapore that specially sells bjds.
    they're largely bought online.

    another thing also, these dolls are very different than your barbie dolls.
    barbie is made of vinyl. BJDs are made of hard plastic called resin.
    hand casted, and only made when ordered. hence the waiting time of 1to2 months from order.
    when you order a bjd, if it's not a limited full set, the doll comes with no clothes, shoes, wig, accessories, etc...
    at the most is just a pair of eyes. everything else you have to get separate.
    some basic cleaning and care also has to be done.

    if you're looking into starting this hobby, find out more and read the faq section before getting your doll.
    it's not something that comes very cheap, quite abit of money is involved.

    it's nice to see new owners coming up, but it's not a good thing when they just jump into it blindly,
    cause everyone has one and it's the in thing or whatever.
    and not care about finding out more, or how to properly care for these dolls.

    the whole lot of us are in facebook actually, that's why this section is really quiet.
    i'm just randomly checking in...
