I've been wondering about this. I've been to a few meets where someone has to prop their doll against something because it can't sit. It falls backwards at the hip. Some of these have been very expensive dolls... (EID comes to mind). I know we're all kind of numbed to the price of these dolls in a way, but if you looked at it with fresh eyes, the thought of spending hundreds of dollars on a doll that cannot even sit up is pretty ridiculous... so why do people put up with this? I can understand dolls that can't stand because achieving perfect balance is a bit harder than achieving sitting stability, particularly with the larger ones. But something as simple as sitting...? I know it has sometimes to do with the pants but even then, the doll should be able to sit while wearing pants, since that is certainly possible with other dolls I've seen. I'm not trying to sound complaining or anything, I'm just honestly curious. The owners of these have behaved as if its just part of the sculpt, and not something that's a problem... but I think we can all agree that this is not what we should expect for the money spent. So I guess to put a couple questions out there..... 1. Do you have a doll that can't sit up? Did you contact the company? Does it bother you? 2. If you don't, what would you do if you got a doll like this? Do you think it's a problem? EDIT: By the way, I don't consider dolls that can be made to slouch dolls that can't sit. Slouching is a form of sitting ;P I'm only talking about ones that can't sit straight, can't slouch, but just fall backwards no matter what. Also, people have been saying that they dont mind so long as it can be fixed with modding, but is it really okay for companies to cut corners on design, expecting the new owners to fix their problems?
