So this morning I got my Mizi Dolls from China. And I have to say I am fan !!! These are the shippers they arrived in.
And this is how the boxes look. They are not very luxurious but I do think they are cute. And love that they used a lace detail as an illustration for these lingerie dolls.
And here they are. I got the 2 regular dolls and the 2 dealer exclusives.
I deboxed one of the girls and I think she is so so soooo cute.
She poses really nice and she is a lot of fun to play with. Her hands come off so its easy to redress her.
So overall I am very positive. And I really love her sexy 30ties vibe. Of course there are some things that I think can be improved.
I would love to see a doll stand. She poses really nice but I display all my dolls so its nice to include a stand. The seems are sometimes a bit rough, but not worse then some collectible dolls that we know from companies that are around already for many years. The shoes are a bit to flexible so they don’t stay on and you have to secure them with a rubber band. They hands are made of more flexible vinyl. So the color is a bit off with the color of her body but this is very minimal. And I would love to see her with some jewelry. If these lingerie dolls came with a simple pearl earring I would already be very happy.
But I also have to be realistic. Its a first doll for Jason & Dimon. And her retail price is $69. I am very excited to see what the future will bring for this brand. I am in love and a fan.
Mizi makes me very excited and there was just so much I wanted to know about this new fashion doll so I had small interview for you guys with Jason&Dimon
So tell us who are Jason&Dimon are you a collector yourself.
I am a Chinese toy designer and also a toy collector. I have been passionate about dolls for more then 20 years. One day a friend who worked for a toy factory came to my house and we came with the idea to design a new fashion doll and Jason & Dimon was born.
How long did it take from the first idea of Mizi until her release.
Since we had made the first model of her face it took more then a year to take her into production.
Can you tell us something more about Mizi what is her backstory.
Mizi is 19 years old and she is a model from the 1930’s. When Mizi finished college in the United States, she returned to Shanghai and became a model. She took many commercial advertising with her unique beautiful face. She usually likes to travel. You can see her at the streets of Tokyo, New York, Paris.
For what kind of collector do you think Mizi is the perfect doll.
We like to make Mizi a collector doll at a lower price point but with high quality fashions. We want to keep her price reasonable so we like to invest in her hair, fashions, and face and use a more affordable solution for making her body. Some people will not agree but it is unrealistic to keep her at a low price and be perfect in everything. But I can say that Mizi’s fashions and her lovely shapes will be a big plus for the fashion doll collectors.
Will Mizi fit fashions from other brands like Barbie and Integrity Toys.
Yes she can share the fashions of Barbie and Integrity Toys.
Can you tell us something about what you would like to see in the future of Mizy.
Next month Mizi will be released as some classic movie characters, wearing gorgeous costumes and she will come in exquisite packaging boxes.
And next year my idea is to add some more fantasy element, and she will get some friends. These first 4 dolls are just the start an we are still working on improving her. And I am very open for feedback from collectors.
Now that we know that Mizi is a model from the the 30ties in Shanghai will we see her in some vintage inspired Cheongsam dresses.
Maybe but I don’t want to limit her to just Chinese inspired fashion. We already have a lot of these dolls.
What are Mizi’s favorite designers.
One of the inspirations for Mizi is Audrey Hepburn. Dior and YSL are her favorite designers.
It look like there is a lot of interest for Mizi from collectors. They Dealer exclusive dolls were already sold out before her official release date. Did you ever expected that she would be so warm welcomed by collectors.
I am glad that so many people are liking her. When I saw her first sample I really hoped people would like her nice fashion and cute body. Now my focus is on how to improve her. I love her face and fashions. And for me now the focus is on improving her body. She also needs exquisite jewelry and shoes. The love that the collectors are giving me really motivate me to work on these things.
For now Mizi is available by the online doll dealer Direction Dolls in China and at her website. In the future will she be available at European and/or American fashion doll Dealers.
Yes we have an American fashion doll Dealer Denise Travers. And she introduced Mizi at IFDC. You can contact her at her new facebook page Mizi in America
