If you’re thinking of getting a Dollfie Dream ball-jointed doll then here’s some information about how tall they are as well as their weight.
How Much Do They Weigh?
I made a video about Dollfie doll weight – see below:
Remember that their clothing, shoes and accessories can add additional weight. The platform shoes Towa is wearing as part of her Ikki Tousen (Ryomou Shimei) outfit are really heavy. It must be remembered that as 1:3 scale dolls, their clothing and accessories can weigh around 1/3rd of the human sized versions.
How Tall Are They?
Towa and I got the tape measure out and we reckon these are the height measurements of our girls:
- Dollfie Dream Dynamite Towa is 59 cm (23.2 inches).
- Our two Dollfie Dream Sisters (Uzuki Shimamura and Kizuna AI) are 57 cm (22.4 inches).
- Yayoi Takatsuki is our Dollfie Dream Pretty and she’s 51 cm (20 inches).
- Our Mini Dollfie Dream (MDD) Mochi-Ashi is 43.5 cm (17.1 inches).
We don’t have a regular Dollfie Dream, i.e. one like Miku Hatsune. She’s around 2-3 cm taller than Dollfie Dream Dynamite Towa.
We do have boy Dollfie Dream Kaito on order. He’s reckoned to be around the same height as a regular Dollfie like Miku Hatsune. However, he has special shoe inserts to give the appearance of being taller than the girls.
What Scale Are They?
If you’re buying accessories for Dollfie Dream dolls then generally you’ll need to find things that are made to 1:3 human size. While Dollfies aren’t exactly 1:3 scale, any accessories that are this size look really great with them. Incidentally Smart Dolls are also 1:3 scale.
In the photo below, Towa is holding a 1:3 scale umbrella I found on AliExpress:
When buying clothing 1:3 scale outfits are usually great for a Dollfie. Just be aware that some types have particular sizing issues:
- Dollfie Dream Dynamite girls are, uh, quite thicc which means it can be more difficult for them to fit into regular 1:3 sized doll clothes due to their larger thighs, butt and bust sizes. The bust parts are interchangeable should you want your girl to fit into a smaller outfit.
- Dollfie Dream Sister girls (and also boys) are slightly smaller than regular Dollfie Dream dolls. This does sometimes mean that outfits look slightly bigger on them than they would otherwise do. It’s not a huge difference though, and my Dollfie Dream Sister was able to fit into Dollfie Dream Dynamite Towa’s bodysuit without any issues.
- Dollfie Dream Pretty girls can be more difficult to find clothing for that fits them well. I almost got Yayoi into a 1:4 sized pair of boots that an AliExpress seller sent us by mistake, but I ended up busting one of the zips trying to get them to fit. Standard 1:3 sized Dollfie shoes are just a little on the large size for her.
- Mini Dollfie Dream (MDD) dolls are increasingly popular but sometimes it can be tricky to find outfits for them. Technically they are 1:4 sized but because they’re supposed to be younger Dollfies they should still be considered 1:3 scale when it comes to accessories. Also bear in mind there are regular MDD and Mochi-Ashi MDD. The second type have chubby hands, legs and feet and regular MDD clothing and especially shoes won’t always fit them.
When I go shopping I often take my tape measure with me and measure objects to see if they’re 1:3 human scale. I found these miniature spirits bottles, which are pretty much the Dollfie versions of the human versions:
So that’s how tall and heavy Dollfie dolls are. As you can see, they’re much larger and heavier than your average Barbie or Ken!
