Little Pullip Hime yuri
Hime yuri is adorable. She has long silky black hair, blue eyes, and bold red lips. She comes wearing an adorable little kimono.
She has lovely inset eyes and rooted eyelashes. Little Pullips do not have the moving eye mechanisms like their full size counterparts though.
Her hair is pulled up on top and she is wearing a green pearl hairpin and a pink ribbon rosette with pearl bead details.
Little Pullips come with matching star shaped stands. The stands have a little screw on the part that holds their waist that can be adjusted to the desired height, then tightened to secure it in place.
Little Pullip Dormouse
Dormouse is another adorable Little Pullip wearing a very unique costume. She is dressed up in a fuzzy gray mouse suit with a pink felt tummy and an orange bow tie. She wears grey and black striped overalls on top of her mouse suit. She also has a black top hat with grey/black stripe ribbon trim to match her overalls, and an attached cute stuffed mouse face plushie.
She also has a tiny grey tail with a black bow at the end. She comes with a purple stand to match the purple buttons on her overalls.
She has the most precious purple eyes and such a sweet face.
Little Dal Princess Tulip
Princess Tulip is actually a Little Dal. In the Pullip family, Dal is Pullip's boyfriend, Tae Yang's little sister. I always think Dal has a little more of a solemn face, where as Pullip is more smiley. Princess Tulip is too cute in her pink tulip petal dress. She also has a matching pink tulip bud with pearl details that ties on her head with a ribbon. She has brown eyes with soft yellow eyeshadow and light pink lips.
Her dress is adorable with it's long pink petals and lace underskirt. It has pink and green trim at the bodice and waist. Princess Tulip is actually dressed as a flower.
Here you can see the lovely yellow and white lace underskirt underneath the petals of her dress.
She has yellow painted on shoes.
She also comes with a pink stand to match her dress.
Her hair is a pretty soft turquoise color and is braided and tied into two loop ponytails. I love how her hair is parted in the back.
Just to show how a "Little Pullip" compares to a full size Pullip, here is Dormouse with my full size Peter Pan Pullip. Full size Pullips are around 12 1/2" tall, and Little Pullips are about 4 1/2" tall, not including their hats. I just love things in miniature, especially when I can compare it to a full size version.
The Little Pullips are pretty close in size to the Ai Ball Jointed Dolls from my previous post. Both are made by the same company. Here is Dormouse with Ai BJD Leucocoryne.
Even though they are about the same height, their body proportions are different. Here is a picture to compare Ai BJD Thyme's body to Little Pullip Hime yuri's body. The BJD's body is proportioned like a child. BJD's also have a lot more joints which makes them more posable.
Closeup, you can see a lot of differences between Little Pullips and LPS Blythe. The plastic that is used is very different, a difference that you can both see and feel. If you tap on the face with your nail, you can even hear the difference between the two. The Little Pullip makes more of a glass-like sound, whereas the LPS Blythe sounds like rubber. The painting also is very different. The Little Pullip has delicately painted eyebrows and lower lashes that LPS Blythe is missing. Both have rooted lashes, but the Little Pullip's lashes and inset eyes appear more realistic. Little Pullip's hair appears to be a wig, but LPS Blythe has rooted hair.
I find the LPS Blythe stands to be very fiddly. It's difficult to get the dolls balanced on the stands straight. The Little Pullip stands are much better. With the ability to adjust them, then tighten the screw, these stands are not fiddly at all.
Here is the LPS Blythe with all three of my new Little Pullips for comparison.
I would highly recommend the Little Pullip dolls. They are very well made, and make an adorable addition to any doll collection. They are a super bargain at just $9.99 each. If you find them at Tuesday Morning, grab them... I definitely would. :)
I'd love to hear your thoughts on Little Pullips. How do you think they compare to other mini dolls?
Until next time...
