The rain started around 1am. It was a freezing rain. There was lightning and much thunder. An ice storm in the middle of the night that kept me awake for a few hours. In the morning, sleet was on the roads and tree branches covered with ice were falling. Not a happy sight but I had to go to work. The roads were ok and kiddo did go to school so it was not as bad as I thought. The freezing rain will continue for a few more days apparently.
The good thing is I am finally over my cold and the kids are doing slightly better. After they went to sleep, I managed to stay up instead of crashing in bed in complete exhaustion like it was the case lately.
I have been wanting to show you pretty new dolls I have been hiding in my cupboard for months. They are named Miki-chan and Maki-chan and they are Licca's twin little sisters. According to Licca's official website, Miki and Maki are 4 years old and were born on June 12. Miki is a tomboy while Maki is a little spoiled. Miki has wide open eyes while Maki has droopy eyes.
I got Miki-chan and Maki-chan from an Ebay seller in China. They were cheap at only $8 a doll including shipping.
The box was simple and easy to open.
Notice their name is printed inside the box!
There were ties around their neck and feet. It was easy to untie them.
I love the little tags/bags with their name on it!
I also bought two other dolls to be their friends: the brunette Aoi-chan and the blond boy Riku-kun. I got them from an Ebay seller located in Japan. They were slightly more expensive at $16 each including shipping.
The back of the box has the same ties but no tape like Maki's and Miki's box.
Riku-kun is wearing a typical Japanese kindergarten uniform.
He comes with a little yellow hat.
I had the four dolls for many months already but did not open them yet. Now that I have a playroom, I decided to take them out of their box! They are slightly too small for the playroom I had prepared for my Ai-doll.
The miniature sweets that Jennifer from PlushPussyCat sent me were the perfect size for them though.
I think they are super cute and quite cheap so I didn't break my budget getting a few of them! They came with adorable clothes that are easy to take off and put back on again. Their garments are made the same way as most Licca's clothes (with the velcro closure in the back).
One thing I didn't like about them is that their movements are limited... but at least they are not as difficult to pose as Little Pullip, Little Dal and LPS Blythe!
Another aspect I didn't like is the hair. They were awfully thin. Aoi-chan had the worse doll hair ever! It is crinkley and dry. I tried washing her hair in warm water and then conditioned them but they still looked terrible!
- Easy to unbox
- Easy to dress
- Pretty clothes
- Bad Hair
- Limited movement options
- Definitely bad hair!
Do you like them?
I will write about them in more details in another post. It's time to sleep now!
