Dolls of the World Japan Ken is now Dai Oono


Last Thursday night I gave you a sneak peek of Japan Ken, so after finding a cool name and taking some wonderful photos I'm going to give a brief review on Dai Oono.

Let me start by saying that Mattel did a very good job on this doll with a few bad details. Overall the good wins over the bad.

Hair,Face and Body
When you buy Japan Ken the first thing you will fall in love with is his hair; the nice dark long locks is simply out of this world. You can give him corn-rolls if one can do that, do some curls at the end, put in a ponytail. But be careful not to make him look too much like a girl, he will not like that.

Dai has the best facial features, with his high cheek bones, deep smokey eyes that when you look into you just want to have his bady.  The Goatee with Moustache is totally working for him and I'm also fond of his body too.

Tru_Fashionista_Luv from flickr.com re-bodied Japan Ken with a Harley Davidson Ken and while I do love Japan ken on this body; Dai on a Model Muse body makes him really beautiful in every way.

                            


Clothing

Dai Oono wears traditional Japanese patterned-fabric with contemporary styled clothing. I have a feeling that if integrity toys were making this doll, the material of the clothing would have been so much better.

Oono's clothing feels so cheap that if I were to set his shameful rags on fire, no doubt it will burn in a matter of secords. However, I do love the styling.









Coming to an Understanding

To be honset I did not plan on getting this doll, it was after seeing photos of him online I was sold and Dai Oono was worth the $34.84 dollars! From the package and the handsome one woman's man, it truly cool having this doll.

I will give Japan Ken 31/2 stars because although the clothes are some what of a hot made in somewhere mess, I will buy a 2nd one just to keep him around!

Comments

  1. I can't decide if I'm going to buy this or not. Most of my barbies are thrift store finds (I like the thrill of the hunt) but this one just has such an awesome face. I will probably sell his clothes on ebay to offset the cost a little bit...but he's calling to me.

Dolls Do It Better: A Aaliyah tribute Vs Marisa

This is a special tribute to R&B singer and dancer Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. Aaliyah had a few hits that include “Age Ain't Nothing But a Number”, “One in a Million” and “Rock the Boat”. Aaliyah’s styles was very Tomboy but still very girly at the same time. This picture is very cool and down to earth, that was the kind of person Aaliyah was.
Marisa is totally girly here and is not afaird to give it her all!What Marisa is wearing: Unknown top and 2008 Fashion Fever pants.

I'M COMING BACK.....................

I did not forget about any of you. I actually wrote a post back in July, but many things have happened that is completely out of my control. I found a job back in April and up until right now I've been working my butt off like crazy for six days a week and taking care of my mother. Let me just say, I think God for my job each day, but this has been the worst summer in my entire life. I'm hoping to get my six turn into five. My health and house are such a mess. The children are always crying out for me. I need to get my life back in check! Until then, please stay bless and cool. I'm praying for the fall to come fast!

Monster High: Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon & What I think about the Monster Dolls

Here I am again with more photos of my new obsession Monster High dolls Cleo and Deuce. Being a person who was never into big headed dolls like Blythe (which are very cute) the Bratz, My Scene (even though I have a few), Liv dolls and Moxie girls this is really new for me! I think we all knew about these dolls for over a month now and I never thought I would become such a big fan. Mattel really has a hit on there hands and they don't need to mess this one up, HINT HINT FASHION FEVER! As I said on Monday's post you can watch Monster High on YouTube and there will be novels coming soon which I really can not wait for and maybe even a show on TV! This is really something to look forward to
