I'm thrilled to announce the publication of the Fashion Doll Review's first book: Ball-Jointed Dolls for Beginners! The retail price is $35, but if you follow my blog, you'll often find coupon codes for special discounts. The book will soon be available on as well. Brand new blog is also live: Ball-jointed Dolls for Beginners. It includes live links to all the information contained in the pages of the book.

Additionally, I hope to add additional information about BJDs here. I already have the following information available for you, and I hope you find it helpful.
