First Impressions: Dal
Here’s another post not about Lalas or PPG, but I felt like sharing so I did this head shot of Dal Phoebe right quick just to stay on topic.
Originally I wasn’t gonna get a Dal because I didn’t like her frowny face, but it started to grow on me. After some debating over which one I liked the best (and hopefully was on the cheaper side) I got this Dal from Amazon. I have one Pullip, Isul, Taeyang, and now one Dal - a big happy family. Dal doesn’t have the eye closing mechanism but still looks side to side. She is top heavy, or head heavy, which can cause her body to lean when trying to keep her upright.
This particular Dal is some years old and is one of the Hellcatpunks collabs. Along with what she’s wearing she comes with a cat hat, hoodie, cat tail, hair clips, stuffed mascot thingy, and to my surprise an additional black jacket. Black clothes are known to stain these dolls, but I still like it. Her hair is thick, unlike my Pullip Akemi, but it’s very static-y. Comb it once and the strands stick up. Her shoes are way too big, like maybe they were meant for Pullip. They kept falling off while I was messing with her. I love the color of her stand, but I feel like she’s a little too short for it. It doesn’t work quite as well as it does with the other dolls, especially with her heavy head tilting her backwards.
I feel that these dolls are over priced in general, though this one was a bit cheaper. I still think she’s a decent doll. Her clothing and accessories are pretty nice. I think I chose well given the way some Dals cost much more and offer less. Overall, I’m satisfied. I would not recommend a Dal over a Pullip, Taeyang, or Isul since she brings less to the table, and I would only recommend them if you have money to burn.
I decided to check out Little Tikes for the first time in a while and saw this workshop doll. What are you doing to me MGA? You know how I’m all about Scoops. She could be like Scoops’s younger sister, not to be confused with Scoops’s actual little sister.
Since I got Yuki I got a couple of minis during a $5 Target sale a week or two ago, Haley and Peggy. Then yesterday Toys R Us had a better $4 sale on all their minis so I got the Crumbs and Peanut sister sets. Littles were $8 but there weren’t any in great condition or any I wanted. I’m still debating whether I want Scoops’s pony in plush form. I feel like it’s not worth ten bucks, plus I like the plastic original better. Walgreens sells the Mint choco chip Scoops set with Bea as an extra figure, but I already have a mini Scoops and Bea so I’ll probably continue to pass on that too. Oh yeah, and did I mention…Scoops.
I love this lala! She’s so pretty and delicate looking. She could be a special edition. Her bangs are like Suzette’s and her face is white like Charlotte’s but she’s still very unique from her hair to her geta. I think she may be one of my all time favorites like Suzette La Sweet and Toffee Cocoa Cuddles.
That’s the pot calling the kettle black. I didn’t initial this one. I guess it isn’t worthy. And for the record, I hated when they changed the RRB’s hairstyles. I’m not wild about Buttercup’s either, but her old design wears it better.
I don’t hate them, but I’m the shy type.
Wow…I’m half an hour late for the PPG special. Why would they do it at 7:30 instead of 8:00 anyway? Bull- I guess I’ll have to wait till Friday. It really does air at some random times though, except for Saturday and Sunday.
I wanted a photo of her on/in the Christmas tree but she kept falling out of it. I wasn’t completely sold on the original doll even though she’s unique, so I ended up just getting the mini. I think MGA does a better job making big dolls into mini ones than making mini dolls into big ones.
I found one of all 4 new Littles at Wal-mart today, but these two I HAD to have. I’m debating Suzette’s sis. She’s unique in some ways but doesn’t bring the cute and whimsy like these two. I don’t keep the boxes, but dude where’s my handle and tag? On the other hand, there is something kind of eye catching about an unboxed lalaloopsy. Even hidden on the bottom shelf in a single row Tiny was like BAM, check me out!
