Word to the wise… get the doll you want. Save up for the grail doll instead of settling. In the end, it’ll turn out better and save lots of frustration. Trust me on this.

If you’re not sure whether or not a doll is right for you, get to a doll-meet, or a convention where other doll owners will be. ASK for permission to handle the dolls there. Good chance that even if the doll you want isn’t there, there will be at least something comparable. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I’ve yet to meet a doll owner that hates talking about their dolls.

Also gonna say… some people like vinyl dolls, some don’t. It’s a personal preference. I know that I adore, and own several vinyl dolls. Omi would set my house on fire if I tried to get rid of him. ^.~
