I've been looking at pictures of amineko that don't appear to have their arms and legs stuffed (but what do I know?). So amineko makers, should I stuff the arms and legs for mine that I'm currently crocheting?

Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.

My current craft project: crochet domokun doll.

you can stuff the bottom part (usually the white..) with either fiber or pellets. I've done both. If i'm making it for a younger kid, I just use fiber, but if it's for someone who is going to have it propped up somewhere, I usually use the pellets to give it more weight.

once, for an amineko that I knew would be for display only, not for children to play with, I used those flat sided craft marbles (two, back to back) to give the hands and feet more weight for dangling.  Then a small piece of polyfil to keep them in place
