Do you make emotional driven purchase? I sure do. Once I forgot to bid on a set of Petite Jenny dolls which I really wanted because they were so rare and usually quite expensive. I was so upset that I went ahead and bought somewhat similar looking dolls >.<.
I ended up with 5 little dolls from a South Korean company called MimiWorld. The dolls I bought are the small size dolls but the company also offers taller Barbie-size dolls. MimiWorld Official Website is HERE.
The small dolls are usually priced at $15 including shipping. But sometimes they are put on auctions and you can get them for about $8 each. In my case, I bought them as a 5-pack Fairy Tales Set for only $7 each including shipping (all the way from South Korea!).
I don't recommend anybody buying on emotional impulse because they sometimes result from bad financial choice and/or regrets. But to be honest, in this case, I was very happy getting the dolls! Here below is a close-up of each of the box.
Alice in Wonderland
Little Red Riding Hood
They are very pretty, their costumes are so cute and they have interesting accessories. For this blog post, I will only review the Cinderella doll. Here she is out of her box but still attached to her backdrop. She is tied by three ties. One behind her hair, one at her waist, and the last one at the hem of her dress. She comes with shoes, a headband, dress, underwear, a hairbrush and a mirror.
She was rather easy to unbox but it was more tedious than for Licca's sisters or the Petit Jenny dolls.
Here she is completely unboxed.
Her dress is so long you can't see her shoes so I lifted her dress up to show you her "glass" slippers.
Here hair is tied in the back in pony tails with big rubber rubber bands.
The dress is beautiful and retains its shape well.
Similarly to the Licca and Petit Jenny dolls, the garments are closed with a velcro closure.
The tag says "Made in China" and "Mimi World".
The headband is made of fabric and is tied by a rubber band.
I chose to unbox Cinderella because she reminds me so much of Miki-chan!
But the Mimiworld doll's face-up is less detailed than the Licca's doll. Notice how Miki-chan's eyes are much more defined and her cheeks are more rosy.
Their naked body also looks almost identical.
And Cinderella has a flaw on her body like this white speck on her right arm. It's not a flat blemish, it's like a slight bump. Her body's seams are not as smooth as Miki-chan's.
Their feet are the same size.
And their shoes are the same size too but Miki-chan's shoes are softer and bend more easily.
I made them swap clothes and you can see they fit each other's clothes perfectly.
I do like the Mimiworld Cinderella very much because she has nice feature and very great hair! If you remember, I had a bad experience with my Aoi doll and I disliked her thin and crinkly hair!
A major difference I see between the two dolls is the scent! The MimiWorld doll has a strong chemical scent that I hope will disappear now that I have unboxed her. It's unpleasant but not overwhelming. The price of the doll is cheap enough that I would probably by another one but I must admit, it would be more for the clothes than for the doll itself.
