I love the details Azone added to Aika. Her eyes have a cute heart in them and her dress has a heart design in the center. She has so much passion!
And she’s the first EX-Cute with a ponytail (that’s interesting)
But I’m not a fan of the color combination they chose for Aika’s outfit. It feels like it clashes with her hair and eye color.
I’m so torn. I want to add her to my collection but . . . I’m still on the fence. I like both versions but I’m not sure how challenging it would be to add the direct store ver. to my dolly family.
I have a few weeks to decide. The dolly decisions continue.
How do you feel about the 2nd magical EX-Cute, Burning Passion Aika? Which version do you prefer: the regular ver. or the direct store ver. or both?
