Curvy Girls Dolls Kickstarter for Plus Sized Balljoint Doll – Get the doll for just a $25 pledge!

Hey please check out this kickstarter for a plus size balljoint doll. It’s 11 inches tall, so it’s tiny. About the height of a Barbie. But look at its voluptuous body. Barbie ain’t got curves like this girl 🙂

Curvy Girls Dolls: Plus Size Fashion Dolls

Curvy Girls Dolls LLC is raising funds for Curvy Girls Dolls: Plus Size Fashion Dolls on Kickstarter! A line of beautiful, plus size fashion dolls. We believe #ACES: Amazing comes in every size!

//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js

The doll is jointed. Yes, there are Barbies these days who are jointed too. But this doll improves on that joint system by special ankle joints that allow the doll to wear ANY style of shoes, from flats to high heels, and anything in between.

The dolls were designed by a mother of an interracial family who wanted dolls that looked more like herself and her children. The intent of the Curvy Girls movement is to promote body positivity at a young age and teach that Amazing Comes in Every Size #ACES.

I backed the pledge at the $40 level which allows me to select which doll I want to receive. But if you don’t mind receiving a random doll, you can pledge $25 and receive a random doll.

We all know balljoint dolls are super expensive. Even tiny ones, for a legit non-recast are hundreds of dollars.

But don’t be confused, there are some key differences from Curvy Girls compared to traditional balljointed dolls.

1.) They are plastic, not resin. That probably results in a large cost savings there alone

2.) Their hair is rooted. You can’t buy or swap wigs. Of course, they are offering “Customizeable dolls” but the hair is STILL rooted, it’s just unstyled, so you can cut and style it yourself. The customizeable ones also come unpainted so you can do your own faceup, just like a balljointed doll if you want.

3.) Their eyes are not removable / swapable.

But still for this price… good luck finding a jointed Barbie doll for under 25 bucks, and if you do, the joints arent as good as those of the curvygirls who have much more range of movement.

Being the same height as Barbie allows for Curvy Girls to share the same accessories, the doll house, cars, furniture, etc of a Barbie.

There are several different pledge levels. The dolls come in a basic or premium package. The premium one will have an exclusive kickstarter founder’s collector’s box not available ever again outside kickstarter. And the premium one will come with many more outfits, shoes, and accessories. The little Asian girl even comes with a robotic-looking kitty.

Each of the girls have stories and careers to match the diverse real world that curvy women are in each day in real life. Much like how Barbie can be a Doctor or Astronaut, or other traditionally male-dominated roles. Curvy Girls can also be found in various fields such as Scientists, Mechanics, Animal Rescuers, and more.

Let’s help get this kickstarter funded, pick up some cheap balljoint dolls, and promote body positivity in young women everywhere.

Here’s the official press release announcement from Curvy Girls Dolls Below.

CURVY GIRLS DOLLS TO LAUNCH “FAT DOLL” FOR SALE ON KICKSTARTER

Durham, NC – Curvy Girls Dolls LLC (CGD) launched a Kickstarter campaign for their “Fat Doll” on June
6, 2019. Starting at a size 18, Curvy Girls Dolls are truly plus size and will make the perfect addition to the
toy aisle.

The dolls aim to normalize people of all sizes and promote body positivity because it is important to
introduce this idea at a young age. “I grew up a chubby kid, and I never saw plus size people in the media
– at least not positively,” said CEO Joleen.

Studies have show that up to 57% of adolescent girls engage in many unhealthy ways to lose weight
because of the images reflected on TV, magazines, and social media outlets. CFO Bridget wanted to
create dolls that looked like her for her kids because there are no mainstream, inexpensive, plus size
dolls in stores. She wanted kids to have dolls that look as diverse as they do.

Four dolls will be introduced:
● Kind Aliah (Black American) – owner of an animal sanctuary
● Tough Alex (Mexican American) – activist and law student
● Smart Keiko (Japanese American) – robotics engineer
● Strong Quinn (White American) – award winning mechanic

With this Kickstarter campaign, CGD aims to generate enough buzz to hit the ground running with
production and get the dolls ready in time for the holidays. As an indy brand, fundraising is something
crucial for them and they are asking for your help. Will you help in creating a set of diverse and truly plus
size dolls?

About Curvy Girls Dolls
Curvy Girls Dolls LLC (CGD) incorporated in 2018, strives to make playtime fun for people of all sizes. It
designs, markets, and specializes in plus size dolls with unique personalities, fun fashion, and inspiring
character. CGD helps children learn and develop through play.

Children use doll play as an outlet for emotions, to explore scenarios that they may encounter, and have
control over situations. CGD aims to create dolls children play with that are as diverse as the people in
their lives. With their dolls, CGD aspires to normalize people of all sizes and promote body positivity.
CGD acknowledges that body positivity is important to introduce at a young age since children absorb so
much of their surrounding including negative self-images that can last a lifetime.

Cortex Complete Smart Dolls Will Release Soon

According to this post on the official website, the first full, non-hybrid, cortex smartdolls will release for official launch in just 2 weeks on 6/13/19. The models available will include Mirai Anniversary, Gaia, and Melody. They will be fully assembled dolls, and not model kits.

They had a soft launch of Mirai Anniversary and Gaia Complete Cortex dolls earlier this month, which I completely missed.

I am anxious to see what the prices will be on the 13th when the official launch begins.

The vinyl version Smart Dolls cost 52,000 yen, which is approximately $475 USD. For those not familiar with Japanese import dolls, such as Asian ball-jointed dolls or Dollfie Dream, this price may seem shocking. However, for those who are already collecting other similar dolls, these prices are quite reasonable.

I’ve long wanted a Smart Doll myself, but have been waiting to purchase, wanting to see how much cost savings the Cortex version will provide.

The dolls aren’t exactly the same. The Cortex version will have seam lines and gaps and other imperfections. But if the savings justifies the quality differences, I’m all for waiting for the Cortex dolls. I’m completely in the dark here as to what it will cost so I don’t even want to begin to speculate in this blog post.

The official site has much more info about the differences between the various materials that Smart Doll uses for manufacturing.

A few days ago Pre-orders opened for a Hybrid Cortex officially licensed Idol M@ster Smart Doll modeled after Mika Jougasaki. Of course it sold out quickly. Due to being an officially licensed character, this Hybrid Cortex doll actually cost much more than the vinyl versions of Smart Dolls own characters. So that’s not a very good indicator of how much the Smart Doll Complete Cortex version will cost when it launches next month. We will just have to wait and see.

Are you excited about Smart Doll Complete Cortex Dolls? Do you prefer Vinyl? Waiting for the Model Kits? Share your dolls with us in the comments below.

Nintendo Announces Limited Edition Black or White 3DS for $99.99

Nintendo announced plans to launch two new limited edition Nintendo 3DS handheld portable gaming systems on November 25th, 2016 for just $99.99. You can choose from either an all black, or all white, 3DS system with popular nintendo characters and icons embossed on the face plate.

It’s the first time an all black 3DS has been available outside of Japan, and also the first time that the 3DS has ever gone on sale for less than $100. There is no word on if this is just a temporary price cut for the holiday season, or a permanent new price for the entire 3DS lineup. I’m guessing that it will be the new standard price moving forward, as the new handheld, the Nintendo Switch, will be out in just under 4 months now.

The Nintendo 3DS game library has some amazing games if you like RPG, Simulation, or Strategy games (others too, but those genre seem to be the handheld’s strong suit (and happen to be some of my favorite genres as well). I still get a lot of use out of my 3DS and developers are continuing to push out new games still for the system despite being very late in the handheld’s life cycle.

If you don’t already have a 3DS now is the perfect time, and price, to get one for yourself or to give as a gift so you can play together with your friends and family.

Loot Crate’s Sanrio “Small Gift Crate” Quarterly Subscription Box

UPDATE: My first Sanrio Small Gift Crate Has Arrived! Head here for box opening photos and my review.

I just signed up for Loot Crate’s brand new Sanrio “Small Gift Crate” which is a subscription box that arrives once every 3 months (4 times a year) similar to the Pusheen box, which I’ve reviewed here.

This new crate costs 34.99 every three months and has $75+ worth of official and exclusive Sanrio goodies inside. I love Hello Kitty – so this was too cute to pass up. Hope to see some of my favorite Sanrio and Sanx characters make an appearance such as Chococat and Cinnamoroll.

They ask for your shirt size when you sign up so you can expect some wearable goodies too! Probably a mix of toys, figurines, stickers, plushies, stationary, accessories, fashion goodies, and maybe some home goods as well.

Looking forward to the first crate! And of course I’ll post up a review once it arrives.

If you want to sign up you can visit https://www.lootcrate.com/crate/sanrio-crate to learn more and subscribe now.

Countdown to Black Friday with New Deals Every Day on Amazon

Amazon just launched their Black Friday Pre-sale event. You can check back every day for new items at http://amazon.com/Black-Friday/…

Already they are offering up some pretty sweet deals for geeks and gamers. I recommend bookmarking and checking back as often as possible. I’m hoping for a PS4 Bundle or Console to go on sale. I have enough already to purchase, but since it is that time of year, saving some money never hurts, and I’ve waited this long already to get myself the newest consoles, so might as well hang in there a few more weeks and see what happens!

Last year, amazon had amazing black friday and cyber monday exclusive gaming bundles for all three major game systems including Xbone, PS4, and WiiU. This year the savings should be even greater since the technology continues to age and the market gets even more competitive with new consoles such as the Xbox Scorpio, PS4 Pro, and (soon to be released) Nintendo Switch, which means the standard Xbox One, PS4 Slim, and possibly Wii U will need to discount their inventory to see a strong finish this year.

PC Gamers are not to be forgotten, RIGHT NOW amazon has awesome Black Friday deals on headsets, lightup keyboards, game controllers, gaming mice, and more. There are some great deals such as headsets for 65% off, hot new release games for both console and pc at up to 75% off and many more.

Amazon even has a page set up specifically for gaming deals here: http://amzn.to/2evLcYi

or a general one for Electronics here: http://amzn.to/2evMYZH

I’m also needing a new gaming laptop, and Amazon has a page for PC and Laptop deals here: http://amzn.to/2elLmON

Video Games not your thing? Maybe you want some boardgames, legos, cute plushies, dolls, or figures? If so amazon also has a page for you here: http://amzn.to/2fp9ssJ

And the sales will continue into cyber monday as well and Cyber Monday has it’s own page for deals which will be located at http://amzn.to/2fk9JB3 once it goes live later this month.

Per Amazon’s site:

“Black Friday Deals–The Party Is Just Getting Started!

Black Friday 2016 will be here soon, but we didn’t want you to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to save on Black Friday deals, so we are counting down to Black Friday 2016 with exciting deals today, and tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and…you get the picture.

Betoyo Anime Figure Subscription Box Launches Website Revival and Lower Pricing

A representative from Betoyo contacted me last week to let me know they’ve recently updated their website and introduced new lower pricing for their monthly subscription box full of geeky anime goods.

I discovered Betoyo when working on my Top 10 Subscription Boxes for Geek Girls Blog Post a few months ago. At the time, their website was outdated, but I could tell from their social media and blog that the site and service was still active. I’m glad to hear about the website revival and new pricing! (and I’ll also go update my top 10 list to reflect the good news).

This subscription box focuses mostly on anime figures, such as nendoroids, capsule toys, and other dolls and collectibles. The new cost is just $28 + $5 Shipping and Handling making it just $33 a month. About the cost of one nendoroid. I dunno if the products are officially licensed or not, but they look high quality and super cute too. I really like this box since I collect dolls and figures such as these. I’m thinking of signing up too when I get paid Friday.

If you want your own Betoyo box check them out at http://www.betoyo.com/

You can check out some of the recent boxes people have received on instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/betoyo/
