What do you get when you bring together an Azone International EX-Cute character, a talented doll designer, and a popular doll magazine . . .?
One of the cutest dolls of 2016, that’s what!
My jaw literally hit the floor when I saw these beautiful Aika dolls.
Azone International and doll designer Kanihoru along with Hobby Japan’s doll magazine Dolly Bird, are bringing fans 2 adorable girls, Otogi no Kuni – Snow White Princess Aika and Otogi no Kuni – Snow Black Princess Aika, this summer.
However like previous Azone doll releases, one doll will be a regular release and the other doll will be an exclusive.
You’ll be able to purchase Snow White Princess Aika, from your favorite hobby shop.
However for Snow Black Princess Aika, she’s a Hobby Japan exclusive doll which means if you live outside of Japan you’re gonna need to ask your BFF for a favor.
If you don’t have a friend in Japan then you’ll want to get familiar with a proxy service so that they can help you bring Aika home.

I have feeling these girls are going to sell-out super quick.
And why wouldn’t they? Azone, Kanihoru and Hobby Japan’s Dolly Bird have a fantastic doll on their hands.
You know it, I know it and they know it. I mean, Hobby Japan already has a cute promotional page set up in preparation for orders.
Aika will be at Wonder Festival Winter 2016. If she looks half as good as she does in the promo photos I imagine there’s gonna be a feeding frenzy like the Cabbage Patch Kids in the 80’s and the Tickle Me Elmo in the 90’s.
Pre-orders for the Snow Black Princess Aika, Hobby Japan’s Limited version, begin February 26, 2016 – June 21, 2016.
I’m not sure if Snow Black Princess is a made to order doll or will they close orders after they reach a certain number?
There is no announcement on when pre-orders will begin for Snow White Princess Aika. We’ll update this post when new information becomes available.
So What Do You Think?
How do you feel about the Otogi no Kuni – Snow White & Snow Black Princess Aika? How does she compare to the other Fairyland Azone dolls?
Will you try bring either girl home?
We’re all use to Azone direct store exclusive dolls but what are your thoughts on Snow Black Princess Aika being a Hobby Japan exclusive?
Does this make you desire her more or less?
