Tokidoki Grail

To me a doll grail is a doll you want desperately but have next to no chance of ever obtaining due to ridiculous price, terrible circumstance or really limited quantities. I have a few of these grail dolls: Happy birthday Pullip and Namu, Soom Galena in every colour and lastly…Tokidoki Barbie.

I became aware of Tokidoki Barbie’s existence less than a month after she had sold out everywhere and a quick eBay search reveals the extent of my annoyance and frustration about it. Those prices are high.

I’m happy to say, something was announced yesterday that might just make up for my unfortunate Barbie miss! The people at Groove are making a collaboration doll with Tokidoki –  Tokidoki Pullip Luna. She lacks Barbie’s edginess but has brought super sweetness to the table instead. I think her shoes could have been more interesting, but I have *plenty* of doll shoes lying about unworn I can give her.

Can only hope now she will become available online, and that her numbers are not too stressfully low.

    Tell me about it … I remember the time I saw Tokidoki for sale for about £35, I was a bit short of money so I thought, “I’ll get one when I get paid” … Come payday, she was £250 plus and still is. IDIOT. I love this Pullip by the way – I have recently started online Pullip stalking, so I’ll probably end up buying one sooner or later

    Have any specific pullips you are looking at? What of them made you start looking at them? 😀

    I love Alice in Wonderland dolls and would like to build up my collection in this direction. After some looking, I think the Pullip Alices are easily the best Alice dolls out there. I especially like Alice du Jardin and Taeyang as the mad hatter. While I was looking, I saw Taeyang as Batman – God! What a beautiful doll! Even the boyfriend (who collects Batman stuff) loves them, says that Taeyang is better than Catwoman, and he usually hates male dolls. My only problem is, usually they are only for sale outside the EU which means that I would have to pay heavy import taxes. I have managed to find a place in Germany that sells online, they are expensive but at least you know exactly what you are paying. But I need to do some more seller research, and probably get Christmas out of the way, before I take the plunge. Best wishes 🙂
