Unboxing & review
Last year this little lady was allowed to move in with me. She is a Tinyfox Anna. I just couldn’t resist her little teeth and cool faity tale look!
About the dolls
She is a ¼ size MSD doll from Tinyfox and is made of vinyl. The vinyl is a little firmer than Volks’, similar to Smart Doll’s but has a velvety finish.
Tinyfox offers their doll as a pre-order. This means you can order your doll in a certain period of time. There is no lottery system or anything like that here.
However, if you “miss” the doll you can only get it in a roundabout way. For example, second-hand or if a dealer of Tinyfox still has one in stock.
This gives Tinyfox the possibility to release new and really nice dolls on a regular basis.
Here, however, you can also fall back on standard models at any time.
The face-up turned out really great, multi-coloured, even and yet fine. Tinyfox not only knows how to create great designs, but also transfers them wonderfully to the dolls.
Unfortunately, I don’t like how the eyes are attached in the head. Similar to Angel Philia dolls, the eyes here are held in place with some sort of cone (made of vinyl). I find this makes it very difficult to change and rearrange the eyes and gives you less options for other eyes. (Without modding)
Her mobility is a bit more limited compared to Mini Dollfie Dreams. Her joints remind me of single-jointed BJDs. She can only bend her arms and legs up to a 90° angle. Tighter posing is impossible.
The clothes fit like a glove, almost a little too much. The fabrics are beautifully chosen and the designs are well implemented. Small blemishes or loose threads are easily forgiven, especially when it comes to the price.
However, I would have liked if they chose to use a white inner fabric for her dress for example.
However, I must say that I have no experience so far how it looks with discoloration in general. Since Tinyfox offers a protective suit, I assume that there is also a risk of discoloration with these dolls vinyl.
A very big plus point is the price. Because compared to other dolls in the same size, the Tinyfox dolls cost only a fraction of the price. In some circumstances, a doll can cost around $150~$250. And that includes face-up, eyes, outfit & wig!
I find the price performance extremely good. As mentioned, there are small shortcomings and there are definitely things which could be improved, such as the mobility.But I am really positively surprised with the whole package!
