It has been a year and a half since we released, Pullip’s future daughter, Yeolume and we are getting a lot of questions about the next one. Unlike the Pullip line, Yeolume was not produced with our production company. It was a direct production of ‘Ars Gratia Artis’. The first type Yeolume ‘Podo’ was released on Jan. 2013 and the second, Yeolume ‘Black berry’ on Oct. 2013. And we are preparing for the next.
Many that have been with us and played with our models notice that the quality of our dolls has gone up. We have developed body types and focused on improving fabric and wig standards for the past decade. Increase on prices with manufacturing was inevitable just like many doll brands. And those who’ve seen Pullips attention to detail do understand that, but still it wasn’t a popular price for many to enjoy. That’s when we started thinking about Yeolume, a doll with a more popular price and easy to play without body part issues.
Yeolume comes from the Korean word ‘Fruit’ or ‘Seed’. And you can tell that the doll type names are all in that category. Podo is the word for ‘Grape’ and Black-berry…well that’s the same. It’s about 12inches(31cm) tall and material is ABS, TPR and POM. Compared to the Pullip line bodies, Yeolume is softer and bendable. We get many feedbacks on the wig. Our fans have noticed the PP, Polyester wig was high on quality. We intend to keep that on our future lines.
We can see many fans enjoy customizing Yeolume with different bodies and styles. But still many don’t know that the default body’s durability is great. Because of the nature of its body design, the default body cannot pose in an angle but it can bend in many poses. And like in these photos, just a change of wig can give Yeolume a totally different tone.
Peanut? Cacao? Coconut? There’s a lot of Yeolume names left, We’ve just done two! We hope that our fans would enjoy future types of Yeolume.
*This week we are passing on the Pullip Saga quiz.
Instead we are giving Yeolume ‘Podo’ and ‘Black-berry’ to one lucky person on our Facebook page.
