So, the big question (as with many things Japanese) is : Why do these have a creepy underage sexual innuendo feeling?

I mean, come on: here, and here, and here.

Seems a little suspicious to me.

You can even order cute little underwear sets for your Super Dollfie.

Creepy. For hit toys, I really want pontiki to catch on in America, they don't look children of the cornish and are fun.

What the hell does "We Seek Creatiniy" mean? And yeah, pretty disturbing stuff.

Proof that I've been in England waaaay too long:
...they don't look children of the cornish...
leads me to think "Cornish? Huh? I didn't think these looked particularly Cornish...."

That being said, I had friends who collect SuperDollfies and as freaky as they look, they do inspire obsessive collecting and construction -- you learn how to make clothes and do the hair and paint and on and on and on...

Which is far cooler than anything you could do with a Cabbage Patch Kid.

You say creepy, I say dreamy. They are just like anime characters coming to life (or 3D).

First saw a couple of pictures of them on LiveJournal a couple of weeks ago and wondered what they were. Thanks page404!
