@ng: I was so amazed when I first saw them, you know. They are exquisitely beautiful.

@Kirthi: Yes, I agree. I really wanted one but they are too expensive. Do you know the starting price of the doll "Ruby" is $4,500? I don't think I'll be able to collect that much money in 10 years.

@Jacqui: I'm already a follower of your blog. Thanks for visiting!

They are very beautiful but they look like they are depressed, to me. They just look so sad.

Aik said...

@Teddy Rose: Yeah, their eyes are painted in such a way that makes you feel as if they are sad. But even so, they are still beautiful.
