Our dolls are made from high quality TPE (thermoplastic elastomer). This is a mixture of polyvinyl chloride and silicone. TPE feels silky soft and has the texture of a real human skin. The material is waterproof, hypoallergenic and free of ftalaten.
Positions and movements
Due the characteristics of TPE, excessive activity or too large movement angles may result in rapture of the material. Thus please take care in use.
The doll’s head is connected to its body with metal connectors and can turn to the right and left freely. However, because its neck is fixed by the metal skeleton, the head-lifting and head-bowing forward and backward should not exceed 45 degrees and the head-sway to the right and left should not go beyond 45 degrees.
Shoulder and upper arms
The upper arms can be raised forward as high as the chest, that is, about 60 degrees forward. They can bent slightly backward for 5-10 degrees. They can be raised to both sides horizontally as high as to the chest level, that is, about 60 degrees in the directions of both sides.
When the upper arms are being folded inside (chest-hugging), they should not exceed the chest, that is, about 15 degrees inside.
The lower arms and wrists
The doll’s lower arms can rotate in one direction for 90 degrees. Because we set displacement restrictions on the bones, the lower arms cannot bend or rotate in the other directions.
The doll’s wrists can bend up and down 5 degrees up and down separately. The lower arms can rotate with a 60 degree limit.
The doll’s waist can bend to the left and right horizontally, the angles for this are limited to 30 degrees. The angles for waist bending forward and backward (waist bending and chest thrusting out) are limited to 40 degrees. When the body rotates right and left (waist twisting), the angles are limited to 40 degrees.
When the waist is bent and rotated simultaneously, angles in all directions are superimposed and the limits are reduced by half. For example, if bending the waist to the left while twisting it at the same time, the angle limits in all directions will be reduced to maximum of 20 degrees.
Hips and tights
The thights of the doll can be separated to both sides to a maximum of 130 degrees, and for single leg splitting the leg can be increased to 100 degrees. However, we recommend that you don't open the thights too far; this puts too much pressure on the TPE of the doll, which can cause damage.
The safe leg opening that we recommend is 50 degrees to both sides, and not over 15 degrees of the body's vertical line to the inside. For a single leg it should'nt be lifted upward over 90 degrees, and bent backward over 15 degrees of the body's vertical line.
Knees and ankles
The lower legs can be bent backward to the maximum of 120 degrees and the recommended angle is 100 degrees. They have mechanical displacement restrictors and cannot bent forward. The doll’s ankles can be rotated up and down 45 degrees both ways. Similarly they have mechanical displacement restrictors and cannot be rotated too much.
