-DollZone is temporarily re-releasing their 1/4 dolls that were discontinued in April! The re-release dolls are available thru MoC until June 23rd, and are only available in Tan & Grey Skin. During this re-release the dolls will be discounted at 12% off, (no discounts for the heads though). For complete details please view a re-release doll listing, (all of them say "*Last Chance!*" beside them), on our website

- We have a LoongSoul Doll shipment on the way!!! July orders will be in this, and likely some August orders. We are giving you all the tracking #, but please understand that once the parcels arrive we have A LOT of dolls to look over before we can mail your orders out to you, (there are 32 boxes in this shipment). We will get your orders out to you as soon as we are able to.

UPS: 1ZE7795X6756069173


-The way MoC operates is going to alter a bit. We have decided to change when we place pre-orders with companies. Most brands will be in-stock only except for various times throughout the year when we turn pre-ordering on. There will be a few brands that will always have pre-order available, they are:

-DollZone
-Doll Chateau
-Aimerai
-Angel-Studio
-LUTS

All other brands will have the pre-order option turned off after the current pre-order submission date has passed. Because the pre-order option will not be available year-round will be stocking *much more* than we used to. We will also be creating a "Stock It!" button to put on listings so that you can all voice what you would like us to stock.
We realize that this news will be a bummer for some of you. We apologize for this, but currently this seems to be the best direction for our business to take. We are excited about stocking more dolls, and we hope that you are too. We will announce here on FB, on Twitter, and on our website News Page when pre-ordering has opened up for certain brands. And we will let you all know when the "Stock It!" function is up. We appreciate your business & we hope that you will stick with us as we experiment with this ever changing hobby. Have a great weekend everyone! :)

February 10th '16:

- Reminder about LoongSoul Doll pre-orders! LSDoll mails items out to us as they complete them. Meaning... as soon as they have enough items to fill at least one large box they will mail said box out to us. That means that there might be dolls/bodies/etc inside the parcel from various orders, (example; several dolls from July, bodies from August, & some blank dolls & heads from September). Orders are not necessarily sent to us in the same order LSDoll received them. ***Please don't be concerned that your order was given to someone else, causing you to wait longer. If someone else placed an order for the exact same product, the person who ordered it first will receive it first. :)**** Because of the way LSDoll ships products to us we never know what we will be getting in each shipment until we open it, so we have no way to update any of you on the progress of your order. We do gently remind LSDoll of the orders that we have been waiting a long time for, so be assured that they do know that you are all anxious & excited to get your dolls! Thank you all for your continued patience. :)

- ATTENTION! Those of you waiting on DOLLZONE July pre-orders, we have some not-so-awesome news. After we received our August order we contacted DZ to inquire about our July order. On occasion orders are shipped out to us not in the same order that DZ receives them in, but usually they warn us ahead of time if they are going to mail things out of order. We assumed that this was the issue with the July order, but it is not. DollZone forgot about the order. :p They are putting a rush on it now, and are going to try their best to get it shipped out to us before the start of the Chinese New Year holiday in February. Please be aware that once the 27 week mark had passed you are still able to cancel your order for a refund if you wish. Anyone who ordered a Doll or Doll Body will be receiving a blank Little Bean doll as an apology gift from DollZone.
We are incredibly sorry for the additional wait for your orders, we will update all of you via email when your orders are on the way to us. We thank you all for your patience.

September 14th '15:


-So....DollZone & Doll Chateau have a new policy when it comes to body switching now. It USED to be that if customers wanted to switch a dolls body then they would just have to pay the difference in price from body to body, (if the bodies were the same price nothing would change, if the switched body cost more then the customer would have to pay a little more). NOW DZ & DC are getting the price difference from doll to doll. Meaning, when a customer orders a doll and wants the body switched, DZ & DC are going to look up what dolls have said body as a default & they are going to charge the customer the price of the doll with that body. Of course many times there are multiple dolls with the same default body, and they are not always the same price. When that happens DZ & DC are going to go with whatever doll costs the most.

So from now on when you are thinking of doing a body switch for a doll from either of these brands please know that the price difference is NOT going to be from body to body, but from doll to doll.

Hopefully we explained this OK. If you have any questions please email us.



September 9th '15:

- Just a heads up to those of you who are planning on buying a DollZone or Doll Chateau doll in the near future. We are having a really hard time getting birth cards for dolls from these brands. They either send us the wrong birth cards or no birth cards at all. :p The good news is these cards do not contain any important information, (no serial # or anything), they are basically just a piece of paper with the dolls name, picture, and brand logo on it. If you want something to prove that your doll is legitimate these don't really do anything for you, as they can easily be copied. You can register your doll at our 'Sculpt Authenticity' page on our website though, and that will prove that your dolly is the real deal. ;)




September 3rd '15:

March 5th '15:



- We have a rather disappointing announcement to make. We will no longer be carrying Illusion Spirit and Doll Family - H products. :( We have had a few frustrating back & fourths with this company, (both brands are owned & operated by the same person), over the years but what has happened this week was too much for us.

The short story is they haven't been making our orders. After submitting our most recent order, (and having an issue with that due to them neglecting to tell us that one of the bodies has been discontinued), we asked about our IS & DF-H orders that we are still waiting on. They said that they 'lost' the orders and needed us to re-send them. One of the orders is from October, and we've placed new orders since then, so we asked if the October order was fine/being made, and if they only needed the December orders. They said that they had not started working on October or December orders, they needed us to re-send all of them. With the way we were spoken to, (we were speaking with them live, not via email), it became clear to us that IS/DF-H does not care about our customers, which in turn are their own customers. :(

We are extremely disappointed and upset about this. We had no plans to stop carrying Illusion Spirit & Doll Family - H, but we honestly feel that we have no other option. We can't work with a company that isn't up front with us. Everyone who is waiting on an IS or DF-H order will receive an email today, (please do not email us unless you have not receive an email by Friday, and check your junk/spam folder please). You will be given the option to keep your order or cancel it for a full refund.

As of today Illusion Spirit & Doll Family-H pre-ordering has been turned off. ****** So there is no confusion; Doll Family - A is an entirely separate company from Doll Family - H, we have had zero problems with DF-A, so we will continue to carry them. :)*******




March 5th '15:

-We will have something special available for purchase come Monday! HaoQi Bags will be placed in stock in the afternoon on 3/9/2015! Regular bags are $30, (valued between $51.50 - $131.50), and Super bags are $65, (valued between $112.50 - $228.00). Customers are allowed ONE of each bag type. If we have not sold out of bags by the end of April then we will allow customers to purchase a 2nd bag. Since these bags have a combination of various products we had to just pick a category to put them in, we went with clothing. :) You can find the bags under 'BJD Clothing > MoC HaoQi Bags'.


February 23rd '15:

- We have a new policy regarding layaway orders. Customers can only have 3 active layaway orders with us at a time. Active layaway orders are orders that have not been paid off yet. Anyone who has more than 3 currently are fine, but as of today no one can have more than 3 active layaway's.

February 2nd '15:

Chinese New Year is fast approaching, and with that we have announcements:


- Online shopping will be turned off starting on Friday the 13th, (Ooooo...spooky! Teehee), and will resume on Sunday the 22nd. This is to give our staff time to do inventory without interruption, and also allow owners Jim & Lindsey a break for the Chinese New Year holiday. :) If we are able to get through inventory prior to the 22nd then we will turn online shopping back on earlier. While we are closed we will still be processing layaway payments.

- This is a friendly reminder that orders placed during Spring Events take much longer to receive than orders placed throughout the rest of the year. All of the companies that we work with take a *minimum* of 1 week off, but most take 2 weeks off, with most casting companies taking an entire month off. This causes delays with orders. If you are placing an order this month please keep this delay in mind. Thanks!

We can't submit an order to time with the event end-date and then also submit another one only 1 week later to time with the end-date for Larry, so sales for Larry will be ending on March 19th our time, (March 20th where DC is).

We have a few changes to announce:

-Fantasy Doll and HZ are going to be stock only soon, meaning we will not be accepting pre-orders for these brands anymore. You still have some time to place pre-orders for Fantasy Doll and HZ, (clothing only), before this goes into effect. The last day for Fantasy Doll pre-orders is March 11th. The last day for HZ is March 4th.

-We will no longer be carrying Akagi Doll. The company managed to forget about our last two orders and never made them. :p Because of this we do not feel comfortable working with them. Everyone who has an Akagi Doll pre-order with us will be emailed today and given a full refund.

September 4th '13:

Further explanation for the long pre-order waits. Several BJD companies have told us that they are having trouble filling open positions within their companies. Wages in China have increased a lot for the last couple of years, this year in particular. What is happening there is familiar to what has happened in other countries; the economy improves, wages increase, and people leave labor intensive jobs for less labor intensive job, or a desk job. Asleep Eidolon, Xaga Doll, LoongSoul Doll, and DikaDoll are all having trouble finding workers.

No one wants to sand dolls for a living.

It's hard tedious work, and usually in uncomfortable conditions. AE has raised the pay for sanding jobs 3 times in the last 8 months, but things have still not improved for them. AE is more popular then ever. Orders have been large, that is usually good news for a company, but it is daunting when you don't have enough workers to get the orders done in a timely fashion. These companies are stuck with only a few choices:

  • Increase wages to a point that their dolls become out of reach for many people, (price wise).
  • Move their entire company to a different region that has more workers who are willing to take on sanding jobs.
  • Stop offering sanding altogether.
  • Charge for sanding.

Any of these decisions could negatively impact their business. Customers might stop buying if prices get too high. If the company moves it will cost them money, loss of orders during the move, and with time they will likely find themselves in the same situation again that they are in now. If they stop offering sanding then customers might choose to go with a BJD brand that does offer it. If they charge for sanding, that adds to the cost of the doll and make it look less appealing price wise, (people never like having something that was once free 'taken away' from them). Traditionally Chinese BJD's always come sanded, so that is why not sanding them does not really feel like an option to most of these brands.

As of right now we do not know what these companies will ultimately choose to do, but your opinion could help them decide. They can easily get the opinions of the domestic Chinese market, but they need our, (your), help to know what the rest of the BJD hobbyists think. Please join our discussion on facebook with your opinions. Thank you. :)
