Waaaay back in April, a doll company named Felixdoll, started a promotion for their 11cm tall bjds. Basically at a third of the cost of a regular one, you could get three for the cost of one, with additional promotion items thrown in, such as extra heads, wigs, clothing, hand-sets etc to sweeten the pot.

These little dolls are similar to the Fairyland Puki and those that owned them love the little things to bits, saying that they are equal in almost every way to Puki in the ways they count the most ~ the production quality and posing ability of the doll itself.

Personally I think this crazy promotion is to get the product into the hands of puki lovers and snag the attention of those who were just not going to cough up the money for a tiny at Puki prices (which these guys are at normal prices). They just don't have Fairlyland clout and exposure. They will now.

Anyway...so what's a girl to do when faced with so many sweet little brownies for a decent price? Buy a few naturally.

Yes yes....I am utterly pathetic and made of total fail. Tell me something that I don't know. ;)

As the months rolled along they kept extending the *sale* and adding new versions to it and changing the promo items to the point that I really had NO idea what was going to be coming home to me when all was said and done.

Much to my surprise, my Trio of Trouble arrived this morning from the dealer, Ajumapamausa, in the US. I'd elected to have them shipped out non-EMS so I really wasn't expecting them until next week, so WOOT!

Now forgive the babble for a moment as I try to explain what arrived:

I'd ordered Adele and Momo (names of face-up/sets) on April 17th and then added Angel (another set) to the mix on April 27th ~ Karen kindly agreeing to combine the shipments so seriously who knew with the surge in popularity due to the extension of the sale when mine would roll in.

The reason I chose Momo was that I'd always been fond of that particular sculpt (that goes by that name) and this set came with an extra head (Nene) and I chose Adele because it was different from Momo yet also had elf ears, & came with a sleeping elf head. I picked up Angel as an after thought as I wanted a handset ...or so the logic goes. Cue the additional promos ....chaos ensues....so what kind of Brownie Hash did I end up with when I opened my box?

Well to begin with I recieved:

THREE sets of hands!!!! *face palm* THREE!?!?!?!?

Everyone has a wig, plus two there are 2 gift fur wigs that fit no one *shrugs*. Their non-fur wigs are really nice and fit well. Their clothing are all a bit big, with tartain dress and Adele's pants being the best made. I think I'll be digging out the box of Kelly clothes today :)

I'm happy with the sleeping elf head and the Nene human head,which I knew I'd be getting.

AS for the heads on the dolls I ordered ~ Momo is a Gogo while Adele is a Momo... as is Angel...except Adele has cute little freckles across his/her nose. So Momo is nomo but a Gogo and now I have 2 momos for the price of an Adele and Angel.

Have I confused you yet?

Okay ...Momo set was supposed to be a momo sculpt. Adele set was supposed to be a GOGO sculpt but they changed it to a Momo sculpt somewhere along the line and Angel is a momo sculpt.

I should have ended up with triplets of Momo but instead ended up with 2 Momo and the Gogo I wanted ....except I'd ordered her as a MOMO specifically.

Sorry if I just made your head hurt.

The resin Gods are mocking me...I am absolutely certain of that.

Tuuli was sitting in the garden and found herself swarmed by a pack of Teh Cute...I mean Brownies....:lol:

I hope they devulge their names to their pointy-eared cousin, because they certainly aren't letting me know what to call them yet...besides trouble.

People kept telling me that these three dolls are supposed to be the exact same sculpt...heh...um nope. That would be Pira dropping her toast and it landing butter side up thankyouverymuch. :)

Anyway, I do believe they have claimed Tuuli's lap as their own.

I can't see how this could possibly go over very well with Kulta...unless he's cool with sharing his and Tuuli's bed with a pack of pixies. He is a gentle cat though...and there doesn't seem to be much difference between pixies and kittens from what I've been able to gather...small and ridiculously cute. And he's dreadfully fond of kittens....

...I wonder if it's going to give him any ideas *cough*.

  • I'm avoiding the Puki's (and other assorted tinies). Lilly has fallen to the wayside and bought a Puki from the Marketplace on DoA. Of course, she showed me a link which made me go look and I saw this adorable demon boy... who will be staying just where he is and NOT coming home to live with me.

    *backs away slowly, making no eye contact*

    That being said, your new additions are very cute.
    • Avoiding puki is the only smart thing to do.

      *poor Lilly*

      They are ....addictive if you find you like tinies. I think of them rather like doritos....you can't have just one. They travel in packs. Brownies are actually dreadfully dangerous right now because they really are so much more affordable than originally. I'm willing to be this is due to the economy and the company taking a gamble on moving product and getting the name out there and oh boy are they.

      I think...I am full-up on Brownies and puki myself now. Seriously have enough of these guys (and gals)....and will probably explore the Yo-sd size in the future.


      Yep...back away and then run like the devil was on your heels.
      • Yeah, Lilly was toasted when she said she knew the name of the doll *head desk*. I'm completely blameless on this one. Puki's seem to... delicate for my tastes. I've held one and I swear to god, I thought if I breathed on it wrong I'd break it. I know that's not true, but they're so tiny and light and... well you know.

        That being said, the one I would cave for is the little centaur from douyma. That's just too irresistible and it's a centaur!

        And I did a count the other day. If I were able to get all the doll I have in mind, I'd have a dozen. That number is only for character dolls and doesn't include the centaur and the Unidoll Ark that are Just Because dolls.

        *looks around in confusion* How the hell did that happen?
        • KNOWING the name is a kiss of death to your wallet.

          Actually puki (and brownies) really are no for everyone. they amuse me to no end but a lot of people just can't go that small ...even when they try, the turn around and sell them quite soon after they come home because they just can't grasp the diminutive nature of the little sprogladites..

          It's scary isn't it...when you start doing the numbers. THIS after you said...only one..okay three...I'll stop at 8....no 12....well 16 is my limit...

          26. WHEN the HELL did that happen? Oh yes..I do get it.

          *shakes head in awe*

          I am SO not going to Japan any time soon again. My travel funds are all poured into resin....

          ...but you know...try as I might...i can't get upset about that. They sure last longer than a trip anywhere.
          • Yeah, the name thing is the big old French kiss of death *snicker*. Unfortunately for me, all the dolls I want are characters of mine so I already know their names well in advance. On the upside, finding a sculpt that I actually recognize as *insert name here* is challenging.

            Of course, when I deliberately go looking for something "just to see what's out there" you know you're dead meat before you even open a single site.
            • Well you at the very least have the excuse of having characters for them...I just get besotted and let the characters emerge whenver the heck they want to >D

              heh.....well once you start casting about casually for a doll to match the character you are already half sold.

              I think Amy is the first doll I've seeked out for a purpose. By the way...the owner pictures are much better than the site image. I have seen her without the face-up and she is not nearly as pooh poohy ;)

              • Owner pics are ALWAYS better. There weren't any of the catboy I'm after but the owner pics of another sculpt (the Om) are pretty close to what the site shows.
  • So cute^_^ Makes me wish I got one. So do they fit into Kelly clothes?
    • Yep they do...that is what they are wearing currently in the last photo.

      In fact...they fit into Kelly Clothing better than they do into the ones they came with. Their outfits are *meh* on the quality side....and really rather big on them.

      *the never ending promotion is going on until July22 apparently*

      ...just saying ;)
      • *grins*
        Tempted but no. Got pre-orders coming next month and it's better not to overspend with house repairs. I'll just enjoy them through you^_~
  • *raises hand* Me! I'm confused! *laugh* Uh... I'll go read it again...

    Nope. Still confused. XD But the main point, I suppose, would be that you have three adorable new additions to your doll family! Oooooh! Have you put the Brownies next to the Pukis? Can I see size comparison? Resin colors? *grin* They're so cute-

    [*insert Voice of Reason here* The cuteness has to stop. One Puki should be enough. Do not, I repeat, do not look at those ears any more. The BBB Elfkin has those ears too, so continue to save up for her. *exit Voice of Reason*]

    The pics of the pixies with Tuuli are absolutely wonderful! They all look so happy! *smile* Kulta might not mind being invaded by pixies after he sees how happy Tuuli is. ^____^

    I guess the real question is: are you happy/satisfied with what you got vs. what you ordered? (Although, photos seem to indicate a certain level of satisfaction.... *hmmm*)
    • Net net....in the end I recieved all heads I wanted :)

      They pose as well as the puki and I will get photos of the trio of them with the...other trio of them. *face palm* to do a comparison for you :)
      • It's your fault (from Cirquemom)

        Well, you know I ended up finally caving in and ordering a Zeppelin. I showed my daughter your picture of the little ones with their arms outstretched and she pouted her way into me getting her one as well. So, since I ended up ordering two, it meant that I got a free head. But now what do you do with a free head? So does that mean now I have to order another body??
        This is all your fault. Your fault, and Greyhaunt's.
