I have been searching through the threads on "large size dolls" and cannot seem to find what I am looking for. So thought I would start a thread. If there is one someplace else, please let me know. I would appreciate any and all input. I would love to buy a large male doll. First, to go with my two large Narae girls I am expecting. Second, I love to knit and have designed a couple of male sweaters that I would love to knit up and have him wear. I have checked out several doll sites to see what appeals to me. I always come back to Volks but want to understand why they command such high prices. The standard SD male dolls available really do not interest me, although I guess I could re-paint the faces. Eden is coming out for the lottery. I like his size and mature face but the price tag of almost $1,000. A FCS would be nice but it will be a while before I am in the LA area and I really do not want to pay a deputy to do my shopping. The nice thing about Volks is the standard size and availability of shoes and items I really don't care to sew. Is the Volks male doll worth the price? Are there better male dolls out there that would work for me? Please all of you Volks fans, let me know if Eden or a FCS male is worth the price and wait. Those of you that are fans of other brands, let me know what makes you love your boys so much! Thank you in advance for your comments.
