      ok, so a little personal review:

      i was unsure about ordering a POPO doll, as i could not find any reviews, or even owner pics, but i ordered anyway based on the promo photos, and the event specials. my customer service experience was perfect, and i felt reassured in ordering from this company. the order was placed immediately, the doll was shipped promptly, arrived in perfect condition, in lightning fast speed. i am very impressed with the overall quality of their product, the doll, and the gift carry bag as well. the resin is a good quality, heavy, smooth, and matte finish, no seams or rough spots showing. the doll is very steady on it's feet, and poses easily, holding the poses well.

      i would not have any reservation about ordering from POPO doll.

      Personal review
      Couldn't ask for better service. I've waited up to 4 months for other companies to ship their dolls and Popodoll shipped in 3 days with full faceup despite warning me there could be a 25 day delay.

      The faceup is FANTASTIC, immaculate and the eyes were glass and the inner ears blushed (as I bought a VERY long eared elf).

      The packaging was great and sunniezg PM'd me as soon as he was shipping with my tracking number. I would not hesitate to recommend this company, it will go very far with a bit of support from members willing to take a risk on a new company and their products, you wont be disappointed!!

      :)

      Personal review
      I am very pleased with the customer service provided by sunniez the company rep and with the quality of the doll I received :(e.g All seams sanded, nicely detailed sculpt with tons of personality, nice heavyweight resin, great poseability etc.), the care of the packaging, and the professionalism involved with the entire transaction.

      This was one of the best doll purchases I have experienced yet.
       
    5. 1) what did you order:
      WS Mumu

      Wonderful! Sunnie responds quickly and is very friendly.

      how did you make the payment:

      Through paypal

      how long did it take to receive the doll:
      Almost exactly a month- she arrived 1/12/2010 (today).

      was the quality appropriate for the cost of the doll:
      YES. And moreso.

      what kind of sales photos were there:
      Plenty- every angle. A long time ago i also asked for the bodyshots (before they were posted) and they were quick to appear. .

      were you satisfied with your purchase:
      Extremely. Thrilled, actually.

      would you order from them again:
      Yes! Without question.

      would you buy this companies product second hand:
      Yes. <3



      I was shocked with her faceup. Honestly, I expected to like it, but I didn't expect it to be SO delicate and professional. She isn't just airbrushed, she has exquisite detail on the level of DOD's faceups. Tiny eyebrow hairs, eyelashes...the spots/line on her mouth aren't as dark as the sample pictures. And yes, her ears are blushed! And removable. They sit in the head by way of pegs that seem to hold very securely.

      All in all, this was a fabulous purchase, and I have no regrets at all. <3

    8. I bought one doll (new) on ebay. YiFan (63 cm body)

      What I really want to point out is that the doll is absolutly wonderful. Non my other dolls has a so agile body.

      Doll and face-up are simply great. I can only commend this brand.
       
    9. 1) what did you order:
      I ordered a Nangong You through MOC in tan.

      2) when did you order:
      July, 2011

      did you buy direct from the company or from a distributor:
      MoC

      how was the communication:
      With MoC? great. Bewteen MoC and Popo? Terrible.

      how did you make the payment:
      Credit card

      how long did it take to receive the doll:
      I didnt. See, they forgot to make the doll. They said they would and that they would send it out later. The second shipmets (from the august/september orders) did not include my doll. It is now December. I have cancelled my order, and as sweet as MoC is, they have refunded my payments.

      were you satisfied with your purchase:
      No.

      would you order from them again:
      Honestly? I would have considered it if after all of this my doll was in the last shipment. But between them taking forever to answer emails, forgetting to MAKE a doll, and not shipping my doll as soon as they could... no. No I will not order from them again. I don't want to sound bratty, but if a company forgets to make a doll from JULY, I feel it should be a little more prioritized.

      would you buy this companies product second hand:
      Maybe.

    15. What did you order:
      Shirui with default face-up in white skin

      When did you order:
      13th September 2012

      Did you buy direct from the company or from a distributor:
      I bought her through the french retailer Winddolls

      How was the communication:
      not very good, either with Winddolls and also Popodoll

      How did you make the payment:
      Through paypal

      How long did it take to receive the doll:
      She arrived finally after 4 1/2 months on 1st February 2013

      Was the quality appropriate for the cost of the doll:
      yes, she was packed very good and the resin is also a nice quality. Was a bit disappointed though there wasn't any free gift after such a long wait.

      Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Well, the promos don't have a good quality; to my mind she looks a bit different but I like her very much anyway.

      Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes, but I still have to learn how to handle her, she doesn't stand very well and tends to fold like a pocket knife.

      would you order from them again:
      Yes, I'm also interested in other dolls from them.

      would you buy this companies product second hand:
      Don't know, depends on the offered quality.
