Are you ready for March 2016? If not, you better be! Why, because Groove is going to release their first doll from the new Pullip Premium series.
The doll to grace the scene first will be Pullip Premium Kiyomi Mint Ice Cream Version.
I know what you’re thinking, is it even possible for Groove to top the original Kiyomi?
The amazing Pullip Kiyomi from 2012 who Groove stated was “widely loved around the world.”
How do you make a masterpiece even better?
Well, I don’t know . . . but Groove believes they’ve found the secret key that will make long time and new fans fall in love with Pullip Premium Kiyomi.
This latest versions of Kiyomi which I now dub Kiyomi 2.0, stays true to Kiyomi 1.0’s style: colorful, girly, and kigurumi.
It’s pretty much everything you loved about Kiyomi 1.0 but with a slight twist here and there.
But the question remains. Is Kiyomi 2.0 adorable enough to entice Pullip fans around the world to pay the ¥19,000 (approx. $163) to add her to their doll family?
Where To Order
Release Date: November 2016
Price: ¥19,000 about $163
So What Do You Think?
How likely are you to add Kiyomi 2.0 Pullip Premium Kiyomi Mint Ice Cream Version to your doll collection?
Are you happy with Groove’s decision to take popular Pullip dolls and give them color variants?
If you remember the Pullip Regeneration Series of 2012 does this all feel a little like déjà vu or do you prefer how Groove is offering variant colors this time around instead of the fresh clothes/make-up updates?
