Dollstown is the company name for the work of the Korean sculptors An Jong Hak and Torre. An Jong Hak produces complete dolls; Torre designs heads to fit the bodies made by An Jong Hak. The first Dollstown doll was released for sale in October of 2004. Dollstown dolls are characterized by large, youthful faces and realistic body sculpts with an aesthetic inspired by Western art traditions. The sculptors are committed to producing their dolls entirely by hand and have issued a statement to this effect. All current Dollstown dolls are professionally cast by DollsheCraft in Daejon and are then shipped to Dollstown in Seoul for finishing.


Lines

Dollstown has created six doll lines delineated mostly by body age. Initially, each age group was developed to have interchangeable heads that would fit bodies of either gender, but this design was not strictly adhered to with the more mature sculpts for aesthetic reasons. An Jong Hak stated in 2011 that he and Torre were working on 17yrs and 14yrs bodies.


5yrs type

The five year old body was released as boy or girl type with a single part torso. The assembled doll measures 41cm tall. The boy body was discontinued in March of 2011.

Heads compatible with the 5yrs type:

7yrs type

The seven year old body was released as boy or girl type with a three-part torso. The assembled doll measures 46cm tall. The body sculpt features the reversed hip joint sometimes used by An Jong Hak, which places the ball on the pelvis and the socket in the upper thigh. The boy body was discontinued in March of 2011.

Heads compatible with the 7yrs type:

Elf type

The elf type body is a slender, small-breasted female body type with a two-part torso. The assembled doll measures 53cm tall. The body sculpt features the reversed hip joint sometimes used by An Jong Hak, which places the ball on the pelvis and the socket in the upper thigh. An updated version of the elf body was released in 2013. Updates made include adding double jointed knees and elbows,and slightly modifying the forearms and calves.

Measurements:
height 52cm (head+body)
sitting height 26
length of arms 15.5
length of hand 5
length of foot 6.4
width of shoulder 11
circumference of neck 8
circumference of bust 19
circumference of waist 16
circumference of hips 22.2

Heads compatible with the Elf type:

Various 60cm and 45cm clothing will fit the Dollstown Elf body; tight and/or stretchy 60cm size, and loose/baggy 45cm clothing are both effective. Some larger-sized Dollheart 45cm shoes may fit depending on style. Zaoll clothing fits the Elf body relatively well, though the fit may be off slightly due to the difference in body.

13yrs type

The thirteen year old type is a female body type with a two-part torso. This was the first body type made by An Jong Hak in 2005 and has been released in several iterations, some of which were available simultaneously: The 13A and more slender 13B; the 13A2 and 13B2 released August of 2006; 13C; and 13B3 (the current version, which is now simply called 13yrs girl). The 13B3 version was selected as the remaining version available when the 15yrs girl body was released in an attempt to streamline production to only two girl body types.

Heads compatible with the 13yrs type:

A 13yrs boy body was planned, but An Jong Hak sidelined this project to focus on the 18yrs bodies.

15yrs type

The fifteen year old body was released as a 62cm boy or girl type with a three-part torso.

The 15yrs girl type was conceived as a "glamour type" body. It was sculpted in 2007 and released in February of 2008. There was originally a 15A and 15B type girl, just as there were A and B types of the 13yrs girl, but initial customer feedback led to the release of only the 15A type. The girl body sculpt features the reversed hip joint sometimes used by An Jong Hak, which places the ball on the pelvis and the socket in the upper thigh. The 15yrs girl type body was discontinued in 2011.

The 15yrs boy type was conceived as a "muscle type" body with inspiration drawn heavily from Michelangelo's David. The 15yrs boy body was discontinued in May of 2012.

Heads compatible with the 15yrs boy type:

17yrs type

The seventeen year old body was released on September 25, 2015 as a girl type only, with a two-part torso. It can offer a happy medium between the 13yrs and 18yrs girl types in terms of height and overall aesthetics.

Heads compatible with the 17yr girl type:

sitting height 32cm

18yrs type

The eighteen year old body was released as a boy or girl type with a two-part torso. This body type was sculpted in response to the increasing demand for taller and more mature ABJD body sculpts. It is the first Dollstown line to feature double-jointed knees and elbows. The female body also has a flex joint in the ball of the foot to fit high-heeled shoes. The 18yrs type is intended to replace the "sexy, mature" aesthetic of the 15yrs type.
