kimmidoll

folks and friends around me will know that i have a penchant for cute, prettily-packaged, sometimes not-very-useful things and ornaments :P well, i just have a soft spot when it comes to that. can't explain my obsession... but who doesn't like beautiful things? :)

i had never heard of the kimmidolls until i saw some displayed behind the cashier counter at takashimaya. yes, i was on my way to pay for some items and had to do a re-route the moment i caught sight of those ornamental dolls :P i might have been able to resist buying one, if these dolls didn't look so adorable, and each comes with their own "life's true value" attached to it. *lol*.. yeah, big sucker i am.

i would have loved the "choya" (butterfly) doll but since i didn't find it, i brought home instead "yoko" - a pink-dressed mini doll (S$12.90) with a crew-cut hairstyle. she's adorable. according to the attached collectors' card, "yoko" represents "positive" and is supposed to send positive vibes to her collector... so that's not a bad thing :)

for more information, and to see the complete set of dolls, check out http://kimidoll.com. some nice gift ideas....

Oh my, they are really adorable!!

Do we have to buy something before we can purchase these dolls? Do they limit it to 1 per person?

yup, they're so cute :)

btw, these are sold at the gift section within taka (#B1), not over the cashier counters.. so it's not a purchase-with-purchase thing. you can buy the entire set if you wish.. hehehe.. no limit ;)

let me know which one you got, if you did buy!

yes, they're cute, but not as good as Momiji!

I think they are amazing and are a bit more classier and funkier than the momiji dolls, i think the momiji dolls are a bit juvinille,
