Pang-ju are tiny anthro bjds made by Groove, they resemble a Chihuahua or maybe a cat? Last year, I bought Cranberry-Pang who I reviewed here I actually quite liked the little darling and had been pining for more particularly Flower-Pang and Pome-Pang ever since unfortunately other priorities got in the way. Recently Pullipstyle slashed the prices on many different Pang-ju including Flower-Pang and Pome-Pang are priced at only $50. Of course, I was powerless to resist the little darlings at a bargain price so I immediately ordered Flower-pang and Pome-Pang. I unfortunately missed out on Chiffon-Pang.
Some additional general information about Pang-ju, they are ball jointed dolls but they are not made out of resin so they may be considered off-topic on some forums such as Den of Angels. Despite the fact that they are not resin, they work like a regular bjd they are fully strung and have removable/replaceable eyes. They are super tiny, they are only a little over three inches tall.
Flower-Pang was released in June of 2014 with a MSRP of 10000 yen. I think what attracted me to her was her theme, it reminded me of little kids dressing up for a play or maybe a ballet? I thought it was a really cute concept and I love the spring inspired palette they used for her outfit.

Pullipstyle just got in a restock of Pang-ju, the adorable little Chihuahua anthro tiny bjd as well as a shipment of Ai Dolls including some of the rarest dolls like Tsubaki and they almost all have very affordable prices!
Ai Dolls Ai Dolls are tiny ball jointed dolls, they are approximately five inches tall. They are not made out of resin so they are considered off-topic on some bjd forums like Den of Angels but they are great even if they are not made out of resin because they are very inexpensive especially when you consider that you get a full set doll with a face up and wig/clothes eyes for a great low price! To put this in perspective, I normally pay upwards of $40+ for a default face up alone depending on the bjd company. They are great little dolls on their own but they would probably be great for anyone who is curious about bjd but is hesitant to take the plunge as they are normally so cost prohibitive.
There is definitely a lot of variety with Ai Dolls their themes range from everything from matador to maid and from devil to pope. I love how unique and original some of themes are! There is also variety in the dolls themselves as there are four different facemolds that have been used for Ai Dolls over the years my Ai Doll FAQ, additional information about the face molds as well as which Ai Doll has which face sculpt can be seen on my Ai Doll FAQ that I had made up a while back. There is also a size comparison available there as well with proper bjds like Pukifee and Lati Yellow for those curious.As of this writing, nineteen different Ai Dolls are available for purchase on Pullipstyle prices range from $40-$50 depending on the model, now the hard part of choosing which one to buy! Hmmm… the fox spirit, the pilot or maybe just one of the straight up cute ones…. decisions, decisions…
Pang-ju Pang-ju are tiny anthro bjds that were made by Groove over the past few years, they are quite adorable! I mentioned previously that Pullipstyle had placed them on special here recently, most went out of stock very quickly. It seems like Pullipstyle must have received their restock as their Pang-ju selection has repopulated. You can see their selection of Pang-jus here. My Flower-pang that I ordered when the sale started arrived a few days ago and I couldn’t be happier with her, you can look forward to seeing a review of her here in the near future as well as Pome-Pang who I have not photographed yet ^^; . I desperately want to order Chiffon-pang now but I must be patient, there have been so many really awesome sales lately my wallet wants a break.
Pullipstyle has opened up preorders for Pullip Sailor Pluto and Pullip Eve Sweet, both dolls are set for a late October release.
Pullip Eve Sweet is priced at $120 and can be preordered here. Eve Sweet is really lovely and she is supposed to be the first doll in the new Innocent Flowers series of dolls, I definitely look forward to seeing future dolls in this series.
Sailor Pluto is priced at $130 and can be preordered here. Sailor Pluto is the 12th doll in the very popular Sailor Moon x Pullip series of dolls. She is definitely going on my wish list though I am so behind in this series I still need Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Chibi-Moon, Sailor Uranus and Tuxedo Mask ^^;
Also of note, Pullipstyle is also having a sale on most Pang-ju, Pang-ju are adorable tiny anthro bjds that resemble Chihuahuas. You can check out their selection here, I should warn though that these little doggies are going fast!
I ordered Flower-Pang who is pictured above and Pome-Pang, they should be here tomorrow! I’m hoping they restock Chiffon-Pang so I can order her too!
Avast ye mateys, let me tell you the tale of the fearsome Pullip Rovam. Pullip Rovam was part of the booty I plundered from Groove’s Sample Sale. Rovam hails from ye olden day of Pullip, in fact next month will mark the tenth anniversary of her release! In order to celebrate her arrival as well as her impending anniversary, I decided to take her along with me to go for a tour of the El Galeon, as what could be a more perfect setting for photos of the scurviest of all Pullips? The El Galeon is a wooden replica of a Spanish 16th century galleon, it recently visited New London which is local to me.
Let’s set out seeking for coming treasure!! My dream is huger, and is deeper than the ocean… Feel like this. Continue reading
Groove made one other very exciting announcement via their blog last night, they announced the long awaited details concerning Pullip Sailor Pluto’s release!
Pullip Sailor Pluto will be the twelfth doll released as a part of the very popular Sailor Moon x Pullip collaboration line of dolls. We saw a teaser picture of her that was released last week but there were not a lot of details about her release available at that time, Groove has now filled in the blanks she is due for a September release and will be priced at 17000 yen.
Space-time of the star, it has to protect the Pluto, Soldier Sailor Pluto! Continue reading
Groove has just announced something exciting and new via their blog, Pullip Eve Sweet! Eve Sweet is an Ars Gratia Artis original design, she is being billed as the first new doll in a new original series called Innocent Flowers. She is very exciting because she is the first truly unique doll this year so far everything released this year has been a collaboration (Sailor Moon/Kuroshitsuji/Creator’s Label) or Alice x Steampunk which are both themes we have seen before albeit separately and not at that same time before.
Eve Sweet is set for a September release in Japan, she will be released in the US one month later. She has a MSRP of 18000 yen.
AGA mentioned via their facebook that she had won the fan favorite vote at Doll Show 43 a few months ago, I looked back over the photos I had been sent from the event and I found her! I’m hoping the Dal next to her is also released someday.
Pullipstyle announced a new promotion via their facebook page yesterday…
We have an exciting new promotion to announce the marvelous mini and fabulous fashion event!
If you buy any two in stock Pullip & family dolls (Pullip, Taeyang, Isul, Byul or Dal) you will receive a free random little Pullip or Dal.
If you buy any three in stock Pullip & family dolls (Pullip, Taeyang, Isul, Byul or Dal) you will receive a random fashion pack. The fashion packs are random but we can say you will receive either a shrine maiden, a police or a waitress outfit set please note these fashion packs are designed for the older style Pullips so they may be a bit big on the newer Pullips but they still look cute on type 4 Pullip.
****Disclaimer**** Free items are random, you do not get to choose! Quantities are limited, offer only good while supplies last! Offer is good only on in stock items, no preorders! Dolls this promotion applies to include Pullip, Taeyang, Isul, Byul and Dal this promotion does not apply to Pang-ju, J-doll etc.
Yay for buying incentives! For anyone curious these are what the older outfit sets look like on the newer Pullip body type; the waitress outfit is being modeled by Sailor Mercury, the shrine maiden outfit is being modeled by Sailor Mars and the police outfit is being modeled by Nostalgia Merl.
Other things of note, Pullip Alice in Steampunk World and Sailor Uranus are now in stock! It also seems as those there may be a few new additions and/or price reductions to the oddly named Friday Sales Section. My wallet still hasn’t recovered from the JPGroove sample sale so I must abstain from now though if I can manage I’ll definitely try to use as this an excuse to finally order Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Chibi Moon.
