New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review

The newest member of our ball jointed doll family has arrived.  Anna ordered her from the Junky Spot, and three days later she arrived at our door.  Such efficient service.

Of course we were all eager to meet our newest companion.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: The floating head wants to see too!

Even Usagi’s “friend”, the head (see Welcome Home, Doll Family-A Unboxing) is showing some excitement.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Straight from the Junky Spot.

There are numerous notices attached to the package warning of it’s fragile contents.

And inside the initial box of course is the doll box.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: What's inside the box?

Usagi is attempting to listen inside the box.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Random goodies inside.

Upon opening the box, we find a pair of socks of all things.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Attack on Titan socks?

The words “Attack on Titan” appear to be woven into the socks.  Anna says it is some sort of anime program.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: With candy and My Little Pony!

We also uncover a My Little Pony figurine, an edible candy bracelet for a human…

…This large candy lollipop…

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Random goodies and business cards in the box.

…And several other trinkets as well as business cards for the shop. 

This is a sort of trademark for the Junky Spot.  They include several treats and knick-knacks with every order.  Anna says it adds to the fun.

Now the moment we have been waiting for, time to uncover our precious new doll.

Here she is, and….wait, what is on her face?!

That’s right.  Unlike Hikaru and Usagi, I ordered the new doll with a face up (see Doll Owner's Corner: The Face Up).

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: It's a Mystic Kids Vanetta 1/6 scale or yosd sized bjd.

She is a Mystic Kids Vanetta, at 27 cm. tall she is a yosd sized or 1/6 scale ball jointed doll.

Anyway, the Junky Spot only had this doll in stock with a face up instead of blank, and the sale price was still pretty good anyway.

She looks gorgeous although possibly a little more done up than I was expecting.  Her card here shows the default face up looking a little softer, more subtle.

I was a little surprised by the eyes too.  Bjds usually come with a free pair of eyes in a random color, but both Hikaru and Usagi came with blue.  So I half expected to end up with blue eyes again.  Imagine my surprise to see pink eyes with purple pupils.  They are really pretty though, so it’s okay.

This is information Anna neglected to mention to me.  What a shock indeed.  To see this tiny bjd, fresh out of the box with a full face of makeup.  Meanwhile I’ve been waiting over a year for a face up, but that’s besides the point.

But what’s done is done, now is the time to properly meet our new petite doll.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Meeting the other dolls.

“Are you a ghost?”

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Meeting the other dolls.

“Is that why your face is colorless?”

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Meeting the other dolls.

Oh, she’s so cute! :)”

Wow, your hair is so pretty!”

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Meeting the other dolls.

“This is my friend. :)”

“He isn’t finished yet?  Can I play with him?  Can the ghost lady play too?”

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: Time to get dressed.

Enough of that, now it is time to get dressed.

Hikaru is using the New Doll dress. 

It is a dress I made before I got her so she would have something to wear until I made something else.  She then passed it on to Usagi until I made Usagi some clothes.  Now this new doll gets to wear it, hence why it’s the “new doll” dress.

New Arrival: A Mystic Kids Doll Review: The dress is too big.

Sadly it’s a bit big on her.

It’s humongous, but it has become a tradition and it will do fine for now.  Anna will need to start sewing something more befitting immediately.

Mystic Kids Vanetta, 27 cm 1/6 scale or yosd sized ball jointed doll.  Isn't she cute?!

In the meantime, we shall help her get acquainted with her new home.   I’m sure she will learn well by my example and will come to greatly admire me.

“Are you sure you aren’t a ghost?”

Yes, she will learn, but it may take some time.

Time and loads of patience.  Be at peace.

  1. I do like your new doll Anna. Those eyes are compelling, she does need a new dress, so we will look forward to seeing that.

    1. Her eyes are interesting. I thought about replacing them before, but now I wouldn't dream of it.
