Hi I am new to the doll scene.  I just got a copy of Haute Doll the other day and I am confused as to the size of different dolls.  There are 16", 11 1/2" and 1/6.  What is the 1/6 and can anyone tell me what Pullip and Dal are, and as to what size fashions they will fit?  I would hate to go on an ordering spree then have nothing fit properly.
Thanks for any help!!!

BTW - has anyone else noticed the decline of Barbie/Fashion Doll clothing in toy stores?   I have been to a bunch of toy stores and department stores as of late and hardly any of them stock just the fashions anymore, sad really.

Where the wild things are is where I am most at home!

I was looking and noticed that too! A bunch of the clothes are just really boring and generic. Sad

Pullip are 11 1/2" bjd's.  There are 3 different body types, and some fit some clothes better than other.  Type 2 are bigger, especially in the chest and feet (I've had such a time finding shoes for Selena's (Paja) big feet!), but most Barbie clothes fit them pretty good.  Type 3 though are smaller; barbie shoes generally fit, and barbie clothes too, and even some bratz.  I've found a lot of bluthe patterns work too, but the pants end up as capris unless you lengthen them.

That's about all I know.  I think dal's are about bratz sized, but don't quote me on that.

Can you tell I only have type 2 and 3 Pullips?  ^_^

If you are refering to all BJD's in general (Luts, Volks, Pullip ect..)
Have a look at denofangels.com
You should be able to find all sorts of information you need.
But if you want information on Pullips and Blythe types only, there are plenty of communaties out there (Sorry I don't have links to these)

Blythe dolls are 11 1/2" as well. Pullip's and Dal's are a different type of doll. You can just google them and see. As for the 1/6 that is their scale model. As in they are 1/6 of a human.

Swaps welcomed! I have 15 rose balls up for grabs/trade.

1/6 are about Barbie sized. They are literally 1/6 the size of a human. So at 11.5", Barbie represents a  5' 9" tall figure and at 12" Ken represents a 6' figure ( 11.5" x 6 = 69" or 5' 9"). These dolls can be refered to by their height in cm as well. 27cm and 23cm dolls are 1/6 scale.

For BJD's: 1/3 (aka SD) is approximately 60-70 cm, about 24 inches
              1/4 (aka MSD) is about 43 cm, about 16-17 inches.  Tonner's line of adult dolls is about this size.
               Tinies range from 14 cm (very small, like pukis, about kelly doll sized) to barbie sized, about 27 cm or up to 12 inches.

As far as fashion dolls go, most are barbie sized, 11 1/2 inch fashion dolls, but there is a range.  Pullip and Blythe are a little smaller in the chest than barbie, and I think DAL is about Skipper sized.
