Bjd Unboxing: Kids Sky Doll Review Part 1

First I must apologize for the lateness of this post.  It should have gone up over a month ago, but it was delayed due to Anna’s laziness (laziness!?).

Anyway, it is finally time to share some glorious news.

We have a new doll!

She is from the bjd company Kids Sky and was ordered through Alice’s Collections.  Anna said she had wanted this doll for ages.  However, when she finally ordered her, she chose not to mention it to anyone at first due to the expected timeframe.  I shall allow her to explain.

Well, normally ball jointed dolls are made to order, as in they don’t make your doll until after you place an order.  And it can take quite some time for them to be made.  Depending on the company and sculpt, it can take anywhere from 3-4 months to a year before your doll is ready to ship to you. 

So I was expecting to have to wait about 4 months for this doll to ship and then make an official announcement.  So imagine my surprise when after barely over a month I receive word that my new doll had shipped.  Super fast.  And even more surprising was how fast this doll showed up at my house afterwards.  So much for making an announcement.

So I grabbed the camera, woke up the dolls and opened up the box.  And then nothing.  I found myself too busy with other things to finish this and just kept putting off posting this.  Day after day and then week after week.

But enough of that, let’s start the post the way it was intended.

Indeed, let us begin.

The Kids Sky Bjd Unboxing

Here we all are, anxious and ready to meet our new doll.

Yuna is quite eager to meet her new companion, though not quite as much as Sakura.

Inside the shipping box is the doll box bearing the logo for Kids-Sky.  The journey must have been treacherous, just look at the damage to the box.

Thanks to the ample padding provided by the cushion, our new doll is perfectly safe.

The fine people at Alice’s Collections have included a cleaning sponge as a gift.

There was a special offer on doll eyes with the purchase of a doll.  Anna took advantage of the deal for Usagi’s sake.  We will discuss this at a later time

Here is the doll card.  Our new doll is the Kids Sky Momo, a yosd or 1/6 scale doll which is why Sakura and Yuna are so excited to meet her.  She will be their new playmate.

Kids Sky included a little instruction booklet for bjd maintenance, how very thoughtful of them.  I shall expect Anna to study it well, she needs to reveiw some of the basics.

Here is our newest little doll, packed in foam and wrapping for her protection.  I am relieved to find that she comes with appropriate undergarments.

She came with the default company faceup (see Doll Owner's Corner: Face Up), it was done free of charge as part of the sale.  How fortunate for her (when will I get one?!).

The painting is nicely done, though I’m afraid her eyelashes may have suffered in the journey home. 

She came with free eyes in such a peculiar color.  Anna says they are blue, but they look near-purple in this photo and brown in others.

Anyway, she seems to be a sweet and well-mannered doll.  The children are quite taken with her.

“I’m Sakura!  What’s your name? Do you have a name yet?  Do you like my name? Wanna be friends? Nice to meet you!”

“Nice to meet you too.”


“And that’s Yuna!”

“….You’re pretty….Nice to meet you…”

“It is a pleasure to meet you Yuna.”

“This is Shiro.”

“Oh what a sweet little deer.”


Now that we are well acquainted, it is time to present the new doll dress.

“…Must I?”

Yes, I insist on it.

As with Yuna and Sakura, the new doll dress fits quite loosely on our new doll, but it is a tradition that must continue.

Because Anna had indeed wanted this doll for a long time, she had planned ahead for some necessary items.  Such as this wig purchased along with Sakura’s and Yuki’s (see Of Bjd Hair: Reviewing Three Wigs?), and these shoes purchased along with the others (see Bjd Unboxing: Doll Family H Body and Shoes?).

I have always adored this doll wig, and am glad to see it finally in use.  It looks so charming on this new doll.

And the shoes fit her well.  They are sold by Alice’s Collections, and I highly recommend them for a slightly more mature look for yosd bjds.

Our new doll is dressed and ready…for some much needed rest. 

We shall continue on tomorrow.  Until then, be at peace my dear readers.
