PUDDLE 2008 Coverage in Doll Reader Magazine

Lovers of Pullip met on May 31, 2008, at the first Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event. The event had over 30 attendees who participated in events, admired the dolls, took pictures, and just generally had fun. The group met at Mitsuwa Chicago Marketplace in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Fans traveled to the event from Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, and Washington DC, in addition to Illinois. Mitsuwa has an extensive selection of Japanese groceries, books, and restaurants, and the group practically cleared out their assortment of Rement miniatures.

A handful of participants dressed to mirror their “mini me” dolls, and several customized mini Pullips were donated and raffled off. Pullip fans want to give back to the community, so extra raffle tickets were sold with the $36 in proceeds going to Save-A-Pet Adoption Center in the nearby suburb of Grayslake. Participants enjoyed seeing various stock Pullip, Dal, and Taeyang dolls as well as customized dolls. Online web store Pullipstyle.com, home to a very active forum for Pullips lovers, is located near the mall, and collectors were delighted to receive preordered dolls from the shop at the event. Attendees (including the dolls!) received cute keepsake nametags and other small gifts. The event included a grab bag swap and lots of sharing of Pullip love!
