In 2012 a new line of dolls called My Select Pullip was introduced, the dolls were new basic versions of popular previous releases (with maybe some slight differences). They came only wearing a towel and did not come with a stand. They were very affordably priced at $65 and were described as being fun to redress and/or customize so in a way they were kind of a precursor to MIO or Make It Own customization kits. Five different dolls and three different clothing sets were released as a part of the line, My Select Merl was one of the first dolls released as part of the line.
