    2. What did you order? Dream Doll Bella
      When did you order? I ordered one of the left-overs when the dolls came in, because I missed the pre-order. I think it was late October?
      Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? Definitely yes. The resin is good and sturdy, and the engineering of the body is better than any other doll I've seen. All seams were also sanded.
      Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes.
      Were you satisfied with the product? Very.
      Tell us some of the positives and the negatives of this product.
      I only have positives:
      - The doll is great at posing. There are two torso joints, and unlike most of my dolls, both joints are fully functional and lets the doll's torso bend whichever way. She stands amazingly well, and she can even do yoga-poses like "the tree" without problem. This is an unsueded doll. Elbow and knee joints are also double jointed.
      - Bo delivers by far the best customer service I've experienced in this hobby. She'll willingly set up layaway-plans tailored to suit your exact needs, packs the dolls securely and ships when she says she will, and sometimes even includes high-quality, useful freebies (did with me, at least). She also answers messages quickly.
      Would you buy more from this company? I would, and already did, so I'm now waiting on my second doll from her.
       
    3. What did you order? I have ordered several dolls from Bo: Ambriel, Addie, Bella & Sophia
      When did you order? Ambriel was in 2011 and Addie, Bella and Sophia were in 2012
      Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? Absolutely. The dolls were very fair in price for artist-painted full sets
      Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes, the dolls looked exactly like they were pictured. In the case where Bo was creating an OOAK for me, she consulted me several times in the process to make sure she was delivering the look I wanted.
      Were you satisfied with the product? Yes, 110%.
      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional): I also only have positives here:
      -She has ALWAYS delivered early or on-time, which is very rare.
      -Her dolls are by far the best posing dolls out of any that I own (and I have over 50 from various companies, US and abroad). They are engineered really well, and the resin is quality and all seams are sanded.
      -Bo's customer service is absolutely amazing. She has personally answered every one of my questions, which have been many.
      Would you buy more from this company? Yes, and I have since pre-ordered 3 more dolls: Precious Babyfat Twins and Poppy from her 2013 pre-order.
       
    4. What did you order? I ordered five dolls from Bo: 2 Ambriels, Sophia, Bree and Addie
      When did you order? All in 2012
      Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? Absolutely!! Bo's dolls are well priced for such fantastic quality!
      Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes, exactly like in the sales photos!
      Were you satisfied with the product? Definitely yes. Since I received my first doll from Bo, her dolls are one of my favourites.
      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Only positives!
      1. Bo's dolls are wonderful. The resin has a porcelain feel, very smooth and silky, all seams sanded. And they pose like a dream!
      2. Fantastic customer service. Bo replies to every email and very quickly. And has always done face-ups as I asked her for, which makes my dolls really special. Also, it is very nice to receive free extras together with dolls!
      Would you buy more from this company?
      Definitely yes!

      Since I am allowed to show my purchases, here is my family of Bo's dolls!

      • What did you order? I first ordered msd-sized brown sugar Bella and pink sugar Emma directly from Bo's website.. I loved them so much that I have since ordered Sophie Denim Dreams from her and Ambriel and fair Bella on the secondary market.
      • When did you order? I ordered Bella late May of 2012 and Emma a few days later. I'm not sure about the dates for the other three.
      • Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? The dolls are all extremely high quality, with wonderful jointing systems for posing. The resin is solid and beautiful. The faces are uniquely endearing. I must love them since I keep buying more!
      • Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes. Bo has a knack for letting their personalities shine through in their photographs.
      • Were you satisfied with the product? Completely, blissfully satisfied!
      • Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional) No negatives. One of the things I like best about buying from Bo's site is the customization possible. We can select outfits, wigs, eye color. Bo communicated by email with me after my first order to get an idea of my personality and preferences, a type of individual attention I'd never experienced before! The resulting doll was more wonderful than I could have imagined!
      • Would you buy more from this company? I have already ordered two more of Bo's dolls that haven't yet arrived, and there is a third I'm dying to order if I can pull the funds together!
