In Love with the Shibajuku Girls #toys #fashiondolls

Shibajuku Girls REVIEW
The Shibajuku Girls are the Japanese Harajuku inspired fashion dolls.  They are the most beautiful dolls!  I grew up playing with Barbie dolls, so I am naturally a fan of dolls but I absolutely adore these girls, and feel like this is a modern day Barbie but so much better!  They are beautiful, but not too grown, and with such cute style, I just adore them!  There are 5 girls to choose from in each series, all with their own style and personality.  I am featuring the Koe doll from Series 2 and Namika doll from Series 1, and my daughter and I are in love!  All the Shibajuku Girls are styled very differently from one another, from their hair to their actual style but all beautifully done.

Shibajuku Girls REVIEW
They are fully posable!  From the bend of their arms to knees, and even their wrists!  What has us in love with these dolls, are that the Shibajuku Girls have unique features that are not found in an average doll. They stand 13-inches tall, have their beautiful glass eyes, which are surrounded by real, full and luscious eye lashes.
Shibajuku Girls REVIEW
All the girls' characteristics are present in their style.  For Koe, the animal lover has electric blue hair, her love for furry friends is present from her cute long socks, animal print overall shorts, cap with ears, to the pins on her hair.

Shibajuku Girls REVIEW
All the accessories come off, so children can have fun interchanging and styling the girls themselves.  You can make the girls stand, sit, and pose..it's so much fun!
Shibajuku Namika
Just how adorable are these dolls?  Their hair styles are unique, their outfits are ones children can mimick.  Above is the Namika doll from the Series 1 collection.  She loves to learn, especially anything that involves science.  She loves hunting for bugs, helping out her friends, always there to lend a hand to anybody.  She is an outdoorsy gal..with style who aspires to be a real scientist in the future.

Shibajuku Girls REVIEW
Everything about Namika is gorgeous!  She has hair accessories that are all very different from one another, my daughter loves sharing with her.  She has a cute "school-girl" look, and of course super cute long socks - a signature among the Shibajuku Girl dolls.
Shibajuku Girls REVIEW
The accessories that children can share and use is a very nice feature, and so much fun for little girls.  They also sell additional accessory sets to collect!  I adore these dolls, their personalities, and their style.  It is a doll that I don't mind having my daughter play with, they aren't too grown covered in inappropriate makeup.  Their characteristics are ones that young girls can relate to, as with any dolls they promote imaginative play.  These are also a great series of dolls for collecting.  The Shibajuku Girls are available at Target, Toys R Us, and many other leading independent stores.  Great gift idea for girls, and doll collectors.  For more information visit shibajuku.com/
