Hi all!!! How’s this week going for you? Here it has been raining and that has gotten me on low spirits, but it’s all good!!! It can’t rain forever!

Today I wanted to show my new doll, and probably the last for a while unless I got really tempted by certain BJD head I’ve been eyeing haha! But even then it would be some months! Are you curious? Oh well too bad because today we are talking about my first ruruko girl.

Ruruko is supposed to be Momoko’s young sister but I don’t see much similarities, I need to take some comparison photos, see how they look together.

On the outside her box reminds me a lot of Volks boxes. It is a rather simple design but I like it a lot.

On the inside of the box are you seriously kidding me? Is this the best they can do? I must admit I was kind of disappointed, she was more expensive than a pure neemo! But oh well, the box is not what matters.

And She is truly gorgeous. I’m not impressed with her dress quality, but it’s not bad at all, I just would have preferred some details on it. She looks very nice as a ballerina. Her shoes are amazing (I apologize I forgot to take a picture of them). Socks were hard to put on but they fit nicely.

What disappointed me the most about her was her hair. She has a lovely hair color and haircut, it’s not uneven or anything, but when I was trying to put her headband on I noticed she doesn’t have that much hair at all. Maybe all Momokos are like this, but I can’t check because all mine come with their hair tied. I didn’t take any proper photos of it, but here you can see a phone pic:

Maybe it’s a normal thing and I’m just crazy, but now I’m scared she might go bald at some point. Luckily the hair seems to be very firm on its place.

Other than that she’s prettier in person for sure, love her cute face and rounded features. I will keep her for now and see  how I feel about her. Sorry if I sounded a bit bitter, I guess I was expecting too much! I don’t think any other doll has left me disappointed before.

    I’m sorry to hear, that you ended up disappointed, and I think it’s justified 🙁
    With a price tag like that, I think she’s rather expensive, though very, very cute!
    I hope she’ll end up redeeming herself to you and that you will be very happy with her 🙂 <3

      Aw thank you!!! I hope she will end up staying, I was looking forward to having her home for so much time! But lesson learned, I probably won’t be getting any other dolls on this line.

    I don’t think you expected too much. You just want a good quality and that’s reasonable.
    Yeah, I noticed many companies try to save on hair. Aren’t they afraid of losing customers?
    But Ruruko looks cute enough and I suppose she can pose nicely. I love her eyes!
    And I’m waiting for more photos of this little ballerina. ^^

      Thank you!! her face is really nice, I’m just bothered by the hair. It seems many people agree that is not unreasonable to expect more. Thank you very much for your input on the matter, makes me feel less crazy!

    She is cute and I like her face <3
    Sorry to hear that you got a bit disappointed and as Nikki wrote, I think it is justified too.
    But she is still cute and I hope that you can bond with her. 🙂 I look forward to seeing more of her, and congrats!

      Thanks, I’m glad to know I’m not as crazy for expecting better. She is definitely super cute! Hope the weather gets better soon for some photos.

    Yay, box opening photos. Firstly, congrats on getting her. She has a really pretty face and her outfit is cute but I do have to agree with you on the lack of detailing which seems strange for the price point. These dolls aren’t exactly on the lower end of the scale!

    And the box. Wow. I would have expected a little satin bag or something to protect her a bit more. Was the outer box sturdy like bjd boxes?

    Shame about the hair. I haven’t notice this on any of my Momoko dolls (at least two of mine have hair that isn’t styled up or anything). In fact, my Momoko girls have thick hair. I do wonder if all Rururko’s are the same too. From photos I have seen of the others, their hair does look a bit thin on some of them, not all of them mind you. The Green Gables Ruruko seems to have thicker hair.

    And you’re allowed to be disappointed. I would have expected more for the price point. There’s so much hoo-ha about these dolls so I don’t blame you for feeling a little bitter. I feel a bit bitter for you too. Hopefully she will grow on you … Her hair won’t fall out, they’re usually secured fairly well but I’d still be gentle when brushing her hair anyway. I brush my Momoko’s a bit rough because of tangles in their hair and I’ve not had any strands fall out. My “Hermione” style Momoko girl had the worst tangle when I got her and I had to brush at it a lot to get it out! It’s all nice and soft and smooth now though.

    Do you think if you re-dress her, you might get a better feel about the doll? She’s on the XS Pureneemo body which means she can fit XS and M size outfits for those bodies. She can wear L size outfits too but they can look a bit big but it can also look cute if you like that oversize look. I have one of my XS girls wearing a jacket that is slightly too big for her but looks kinda cute.

      Thank you!! I love her face and her clothes are nice but I don’t think I’ll be buying any more rurukos in the future. Never say never though, you never know~!
      Outer box is sturdy enough, maybe not as thick as BJD boxes but not bad either, it made it all the more disappointed to see her inside in a plastic bad taped to a piece of cardboard.
      Thanks for checking your momokos! Even mine with their hair tied seem to have a lot more hair, but you can never be sure until you see the scalp. Hairs seems to be pretty firm in its place, but it’s so easy to see her bald spots by just moving it around a tiny bit.
      Thanks for the tip on clothes, I probably will try Maya’s clothes on her, see how she looks in a more casual style :)! I’d love to get more pure neemo clothes in the future!! I find it rather boring to photograph the same looks over and over haha.

    Hi Alejandra,
    She does look very pretty even though she has hair and costume problem that has disappointed you. Perhaps when she is dressed in different attire she will grow on you. I mean even though her hair is thin, it does sit nicely on her head and the style looks wonderful on her cheeky round face…and that pout is to die for.
    She would be a keeper if she came to me. 🙂

      Thank you for your kind words, I really like her face, I agree! And I’ve seen many people who don;t own any rurukos say she’s super pretty and that they would have her hahaha. I admit it was love at first sight when they announced this particular release, which makes it all the more disappointing for me. But I’ll give her a good chance first before deciding to let go of her or not. After all, she was my last doll for now, and a reward for myself for reaching some life goals 🙂

    Congrats on your new cutie! I love her sweet face and the short hair. She kinda makes me want a Ruruko myself. xD
    That’s definitely not a lot of hair! Something like that can really ruin the joy of getting a new doll. I hope she grows on you.

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      Aw thanks!!! Maybe you could try with one that already looks like it has more hair XD! It’s the only truly bad thing about mine really. I hope there will be more light soon so I can take decent photos!

    I told you already, but: I don’t believe the “last doll” thing a bit xD Other than that, congrats!! I have never heard of these dolls, but they are so cute! <3 I'd love to see a comparison, though.

    Sad to read about the issues. Hope you can bond with her, she is so pretty!

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      Hahahahaha I know, I can’t be trusted at all when it comes to “no more dolls” resolutions. I was good at it at some point, I’m not sure what happened 😛 !!! Hope I can make a comparison at some point, need to remember to do so, I’ve been quite disperse lately x.x.

    Congrats on getting a Ruruko! These girls are sooo adorable!
    Sorry to hear about the disappointments, for such a price I would also expect a little better xO
    I hope you can still fix these issues some how? :3

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      Thank you! I’m not sure how I could fix it unless I do a reroot but I;m not even going to bother to try, her hair stays in place so for now I’ll leave it as is.
      I agree, rurukos are very cute! it’s just the price is too high for what you get.

    It’s a shame that she doesn’t have better hair, but she has an absolutely gorgeous face! Those eyes really strike me as being especially expressive. Congratulations on having her home! 🙂

    I love Ruruko dolls, I’ve not seen any irl but I’ve been eyeing them a lot, only not buying becouse they are so expensive compared to Pureneemo and come with the same body. Does the head cost so much or where does the difference come with the pricing? I still am looking at them with the buy-eye. xD I love the shoes in this set, sorry you had issues with the dress. Too bad about the hair being so thin from the top, I’m sure it won’t show in photos and she is super cute! 🙂 Loving all the photos you’ve taken recently and hope to see more of this Ruruko girl!

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      I don’t know where the price difference comes from, even though her face is really pretty, doesn’t look more detailed than a pure neemo head in my opinion. She’s lovely and her dress is well made too, I just was hoping more details for the price.
