Seriously. From my point, this is like a two sided sword. On one hands some kids might actually be mature enough to own a doll such like BJDs. But on the other, much larger hand, most aren't. However is this to say that a young mature child (ages 9-15) should own one? *Personally side. My answer, it depends. My sister has a tiny, and she doesn't really take care of it, per-say, as in, she leaves in on the self all day. She finally gave it back to me, after having it for a month, today.
