Alice in Wonderland, Fairy Tales and other Public Domain Inspirations Sometimes an intellectual property has been around for so long that the rights have expired and it has passed into the domain which means anyone is free to use the property as inspiration to their own works which is why we are always seeing new interpretations on stories like Little Red Riding Hood. Alice in Wonderland in particular has gone on to inspire a great many different Pullip releases over the years. More information on public domain inspired Pullips including a list of dolls inspired by public domain works can be seen here.
Starting in 2011, Groove started a line of dolls called Creator’s Label. The Creator’s Label line is unique because Groove partners with different customizers from around the world to bring us dolls in that customizer’s style. So all the releases in the line are designed by different well known customizers, it gives everyone a chance to own a doll designed by some of Pullip’s top customizers that would otherwise would be out reach for many.

My Select Pullip
The My Select series debuted in 2012, the dolls released were new basic versions of popular previous releases. They came only wearing a towel wrap and did not come with a stand. The dolls released as a part of this line were all priced affordably as the dolls were intended for possible customization or simply to be redressed as their new owners’ pleases. This series predates the MIO or Make It Own series of customization items so they were a great option at the time if you were looking for a doll at a low price to customize.
