Pullip Misako Aoki Favorite Ribbon: Review


Pullip Misako Aoki Favorite Ribbon is one of two dolls that are part of a collaboration with the well-known lolita brand, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright! She is also designed after the popular Japanese model, Misako Aoki! As one who has admired Baby's designs for many years now, I was excited over this doll as well as Pullip Midori Fukasawa La Robe Vert Clair! I really wanted both dolls, and so I bought them together as a set from none other than pullipstyle! They are the first dolls so far that I felt absolutely must be bought together as a pair! It just wouldn't seem right to get one without the other! (I'll be doing a review on Midori right after I finish this one!)

Pullip Misako Aoki Comes With:

- Red ribbon headband with dangling charms
- Favorite Ribbon dress
- Light pink stockings
- Detachable bow 
- Red heeled Mary Jane shoes
- Pink nurse cap
-Pink nurse uniform
- Misako's trading card
- Doll stand


- Cute faceup! Her eyes are bordered by lots of long lashes that make her eyes look big and round and slightly droopy, giving her a youthful appearance.
- She comes with two outfits!
- No wig netting peeking through! (May vary from doll to doll.)
- The wig itself is very manageable.
- Stock outfit is very accurate looking compared to the real Favorite Ribbon dress!
- Type 4 body
- Well-functioning eye mechs! (May vary from doll to doll.)
- Versatile and would look adorable in many different outfits and wigs!


- The charms on her headband are heavy and cause the headband to fall off of her head even from the slightest of movements. It also tends to mess up her hair every time it falls, so you may find yourself having to fix it often.
- The metal heart charm also is not sewn on very well. It fell off even before I had opened the box and I had to stitch it back into place. (May vary from doll to doll.)
- The bow on her headband is a little lopsided. One side of the bow is bigger than the other and looks a little sloppy. (May vary from doll to doll.)
- The satin material her dress is made of can snag easily and can fray. Her sleeves are also made of thin material that can rip
- Wig cut unevenly. (I had to take a pair of scissors and even it out. This may vary from doll to doll.)


The bow in the back of her dress is detachable. It attaches onto it using a hook and a loop of thread. It falls off easily, but it doesn't bother me too badly, but I would advise removing it if you plan on taking her outside so you don't lose it.
- Her shoes are too big for her feet, but seem to stay on pretty well.
- A little expensive, priced at $135 on Pullip Style, but it's not so bad as she's a collaboration doll and comes with another outfit.

The Verdict:

This doll is extremely cute and does the real Misako Aoki justice! She really captures her girlish looks well! Her expression is also very sweet and gives her a playful and cheery look, which I absolutely love! Also, as I had previously stated, her stock is very accurate looking compared to the actual Favorite Ribbon dress! I really think that overall, Pullip Misako Aoki is worth getting! If you are a fan of Baby, the Stars Shine Bright or Misako Aoki herself, I would highly recommend buying this doll!
