    10. 27 turning 28 end of March
       
    11. I'm 21:) I ordered my first doll in March 2017 and she arrived a few days before my 21st birthday:XD:
       
    12. The majority seems to be in the 21 to 29 age range. But I'm happy to say I'm in the "over 60" group. :)
      I'm 68, and retired, so I have lots of time to spend on my doll hobby.

      I also no longer have parents to answer to when spending money. I don't think I could have justified buying expensive dolls when I was young and still answering to my parents. My parents were not the sort who would have told me that I couldn't collect, but I would have felt guilty knowing I should be saving money.

      I also don't have a husband (widowed) to answer to. Though I'm sure my husband would have LOVED BJDs and joined me in the hobby. He also had a collector mentality like I do. He collected action figures and G.I. Joe dolls. I can totally see him with his own BJDs, if he were still around.

    16. I'm 18, and will be 19 in June. I've always loved dolls, and been into bjds for quite a while. Two years? And just got my first doll.
       
    17. 37 years young - joined DoA in 2007 after discovering Souldoll by accident.... didnt we all? :) I begun my lifelong dolling habit when I was just 5ish repairing my friends throw-away Sindy dolls, which years later graduated to repairing dolls including antique museum restorations. My work shop (when it's un-mothballed) scares the bejebus out of the uninitiated :)

    19. I just turned forty last month and though I've wanted a bjd for a decade or more, I got my first just a few years back. I personally love the age range that we can see in this hobby and the different perspectives it brings to discussions.
