The Korean company, Pipos, was established in 2006. Though they are more famously known for their anthro lines, Pipos also makes non-anthro dolls on occasion. Their first anthro doll, Baha, didn’t come along until early 2007. Inspired by the company’s office cat, sculptor Kwak Jong Chul spent three years developing Baha- the cat doll that would soon become the company’s mascot.
Since Baha, Pipos has released several different types of animal dolls and non-anthro dolls in a variety of sizes and resin colors, as well as make improvements to previous sculpts. As of 2011, Pipos continues to grow strong in their design and creativity.
About Ordering & Payment
Pipos releases a mix of limited and standard edition dolls throughout the year. Announcements of these items are usually made a few weeks prior to sale date on their official blog and website, as well as here on DOA. Generally there is a time period in which you can order the dolls which is stated on the website.
You can order directly from Pipos or from one of their authorized retailers: Denver Doll Emporium. The main benefits of ordering from the Pipos site directly is the security and chance to be entered into their special drawings.
