Call of the Kimmidolls

26 Sep

We were still in Singapore end of last month when the new Kimmidolls were released. When A♥ received the SMS from our Rustan’s friends, I got a bit worried that they would run out of them really fast. Kimmidolls sell like hotcakes in the country and collectors snatch them up as soon as they come out. Fortunately, we got back just in time to get the whole lot before some of the more wanted pieces run out.

True to A♥’s style, he did not tell me when he would bring them home. I normally don’t have to even ask more than once because if he can, he will. And if he can’t, well, I love him just the same. He is the sweetest guy and I love him more each day. *old folks’ PDA- sorry!*

One day, after a morning of errands, he came home with two large boxes and two large paper bags. My Kimmidolls made it home. 🙂

And so here they are, the pride of my Kimmidolls collection. As I said, they are a hardy lot so I display them without worry that Alphonse will decapitate them or smash them to smithereens.

This was first photo of the group, until I remembered they weren’t complete. Note the extra extra maxi Kummidoll in the background, Masami with the black hair and a geisha’s painted face.

The 2011 Limited Edition Kimmidolls were fashionably late (I forgot them), but made it to the group picture this time. The other Kimmidolls were making a fuss about the special treatment, but heck, they’re special, they’re limited, they’re rare!

These are the new minis. Ako and Satomi are on top; Saya, Sumi, Kana and Yasuyo are below.

And the new Maxis- on top are Nami and Ryoko. Below are Nana, Chiaki, Norika and Eika

Extra Maxis: Chiaku with the gold hair and Ai with the delicate red hair

Extra Extra Maxis (my son calls them the Giants): Konoka and Hideka

The 2011 Limited Edition Kimidolls feature metallic inks and swarovski crystals. The artistry in these pieces are truly marvelous. Meet Mami in pink and Momoka in purple.

Below is a stock photo of the dolls as they appear unboxed (I have no intentions of unboxing mine) from the Kimmidolls Philippines Facebook page.

This is my collection as it stands today, divided into two separate areas of display.

The biggest ones get more mileage as they greet visitors in the living room. Easy to clean, with rounded corners that do not collect dust, these Kimmidolls deserve their place of honor in our home. They are a lovely, lovely bunch.

      I think I have over 60 now, counting the Limited Edition Kimmis. The Limited Edition Kimmidolls cost PhP1950 each, if I’m not mistaken. 🙂 Thank you for dropping by and saying hi, Anne!

      You can find Kimmidolls in Precious Thots in Plaza Singapura. They have the latest releases, as well as the accessories for the line (mugs, phone covers, key fobs).

    Please help! How do you remove the sticky stuff they put in the plastic thingy on their heads for their packaging? T-T

    • Kittymama November 11, 2014 at 4:32 pm #

      Hi, Leslie. It takes a bit of patience, but all you need to remove it is to roll it under your finger till it forms a ball. Once it is thick enough to lift, you can pluck it off. If it detaches and leaves some residue, use the part you’ve removed to stick on top of the residue and pluck the rest off. I save that ball of stickiness because it works as well as blu-tac for sticking things in dioramas or even just making sure the Kimmidoll does not fall off its pedestal.
