    2. I ordered a 1/4 Rena in white skin
      It was ordered January 2013

      I believe that the product was worth what i paid for it.


      Yes, Rena does look like the picture.


      I was very satisfied with Rena.


      Rena very easily stands and she has OK pose ability. She came with three extra sets of hands which was awesome, but unfortunately the loops in the hands are either too deep in the hand or covered in resin. These problems are easily amended, but still annoying.


      I would definitely buy more from Dika Doll.

      When did you order? January 2012
      Did you order directly from the company, or through a distributor or dealer? From a dealer, WindDolls.

      Would you buy more from this company? I have and I will.

      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product?
      Dikadoll Autumn was and is my first BJD so I didn't have much to compare him with. I was very satisfied with him when first received him and I'm of the opinion that he was a good choice for my first doll. However, as I now have more insight to what the dolls from other companies are like, I've begun to see his positive - and some of his negative points more clearly.
      Dikadoll resin is really nice, thick and smooth, I personally find it pleasurable to he touch. They have cute and unique sculpts and make very attractive dolls. Their dolls are well worth their price, this I must say. The company face-ups may differ a bit from what they look like in the promotional pictures, but they are still very well done and look stunning nevertheless.

      I only have the old Dikadoll Senior body so I don't have any experience on what the new one is like. So all this that I'm going to say is about the old 3-part male 70cm body. As compared to some of the SD+ sized bodies from other companies, I think the old Dikadoll Senior body has a pretty nice range of movement. He can do a lot more than - say my Soom Super Gem can. Especially the arms hold poses quite well.
      It's also very easy to balance the body and get it to stand on its own. However, this can also make the poses look somewhat stiff and unnatural if you are not careful. Also, with more experience and a more developed taste in dolls, I do find the old Dikadoll Body a bit too slim and I'd like it to have more muscles sculpted in. It's easy to conceal that with clothes, and make it look a little bit more natural, but nowadays it's one of the things that kind of bothers me with this body. I do think that they've made an improvement with this with the new 70 cm male body and I'd really like to get one of those so that I could compare these two.

      One of the things that I find difficult with Dika's dolls is the eyewells. Both of my Dikadoll Seniors, Autumn and Adler, have very narrow eyewells and it's been hard to find eyes that fit snugly in there and don't gap. I didn't notice it at first, but with trying on different eyes I've noticed that my Autumn has asymmetric eyewells. It makes him look cross-eyed if I'm not careful with the eye-replacement. The case is not as visible with Adler or my Dika 1/4 Kid AAAAA, but both of them have this same problem.

      All in all, I think Dikadoll is a very good company and I would recommend buying their dolls.

      DikaDoll Kid Blanca in Pink and DikaDoll Kid Bonnie in White, both with the v1 bodies.

      I got them on sale and was quite happy with the price I paid.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Hard to tell, since I didn't get the face up on either and they didn't have any pictures of the dolls nude.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes! They both seem like lovely dolls. I am excited to get them painted and on display.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      The posing seems really nice, though I am going to have to hot glue suede the shoulder sockets on at least one of the dolls.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      DikaDoll just raised their prices, so I am not sure if I will be able to justify another purchase from them in the future. But I will definitely keep an eye out for sales!
