I've told you before about those nice friends of my Mum's who always send me money at Christmas and for my birthday and how I convert it into dolls I could never hope to own without that extra cash... well this year they sent me enough money for Christmas for me to order an adorable little creature who's been on my wishlist for years - yay!
At present my baby is still in the "processing stage" but I just can't wait for the "shipping stage" to share my good news, and so I bring you sale photos of my new little (very little) one...
RealPuki Soso Soom from Fairyland...
He's available in either two options of face plate - Open eye or closed eyes or the "deluxe" version which comes with both; and a much higher price tag!
As I could only think of a few instances where a "sleepy" face Soso would be of benefit to me, I went for the open eyed version, however since seeing this photo by Marlene on Flickr, I've fallen in love with the closed eye version now too, or at the very least, this little guy; he's just too adorable!
My Soso is also a little boy, Son of Pendle Makie who's just as impatient for him to arrive as I am!
Still I guess it gives me time to sort out some outfits and little items for his house... did I say he already has a house?
It's an old Matchbox boot from when I was little, and he also has a shiny new Noddy car waiting for him to drive too, now he just needs some hats, trousers, boots and loads of other things I keep thinking of!

Anyhoo, enough wittering here's a bit about the dolls themselves and what they are capable of posewise...

There was absolutely no way I could resist these little cuties with their worn out toe and cute little peepage going on!
To place the shoes on you have to first remove the feet. The shoes have magnets so they just snap on and stay put, make sure you put the feet in a safe place though - those babies are tiny!
They have 3 points of articulation in the torso region, which again makes for added realism when posing.
There are two points of articulation in the neck, Four in the arms and four in the legs, coupled with the three points of articulation in the torso, this makes for extremely realistic and varied poseability.
The above photos show Realpuki wearing PukiPuki hands (Magic Items).

Realpuki take size 10mm eyes, however, if you like your dolls to have eyes which display a more natural amount of white instead of displaying mostly pupil, it would be better to go for 6mm eyes.
So you'll be seeing photo's of my little guy "Mudwamp" soon, once I've finished giving him his "faceup" and making him a few more little outfits...
