Today I want to share, where I buy Pullips, since it is not that easy, when you first get into the hobby. Please note that I am living in Europe, that’s why my go-to online shops are also based there. When ordering, you should always be aware of shipping and eventual custom costs. Happy shopping and thank you for reading!
1. Plasticpop – Link!
Plasticpop is based in Germany. I have ordered several Pullips and one Blythe from their site. Their customer service is also amazing and they are very quick to answer your questions. If a doll is not in stock, they will order her specifically for you (as long as not sold out). There are also lots of other products on their site, for example Re-ments, Azones or Momoko dolls. Also: Super fast shipping!
2. Pullipworld – Link!
Pullipworld is based in Belgium and they always have a large variety of Pullip in stock. I have also ordered several times from this site and never had any problems. The shipping is always super fast and they also have other Pullip-related products on their site. Right now, you will also find rare Pullips like The Fox, The Rose or My Melody HEN-Nako Ver. in their store! Highly recommended!
3. Mandarake – Link!
Mandarake is a Japanese second-hand store that sells practically all Japanese hobby-related products. This includes Pullips and other kinds of dolls. It is my favorite place to look for sold out Pullips and thanks to Mandarake, I have Clara, Chloi, My Melody HEN-NAKO and Seila in my collection. When it comes to very rare items, you often have to be quick, so I would recommend to register to the site beforehand. You will never know, when your dream doll will show up! Also keep in mind that, with the exception of SAHRA, Mandarake has several on-sight stores. Only when you order from SAHRA, the site will tell you the shipping costs right away and your order will go through. When you order from one of the other Mandarake-stores, the system will have to check with the store first, if the item is still available for you and will add the shipping cost after they confirmed its availability. It is a little bit more complicated than your usual store, but the service is top notch and very much recommended!
4. JP Groove – Link!
JP Groove is the official online-store from Groove Inc. in the US. They are famous for their sample sales, during which you can buy dolls that were used as samples for a cheaper price. Those dolls come without their boxes, stands, could miss some of their accessories and their quality can vary to a large extent. This sample sale takes place several times a year, but until now I never ordered sample dolls because shipping to Europe is expensive (you have a free-shipping option inside of the US, when your order exceeds $175+) and budget-wise the timing was always off. Still, there was one time, I ordered from there, due to their second-to-last Pullip Kühn doll. My decision to get Kühn from their site was spot on, since I haven’t seen her in stock since then and it took her only one week to get to Europe from the US. If there is a doll, you cannot get anywhere else anymore and don’t mind the shipping, I can absolutely recommend ordering from JP Groove!
5. The Doll Market – Link!
My experience with The Doll Market, who is based in the US, consists out of one order that was handled without any negative things to say. They were the only source that still had Pullip Dilletante in stock (for a normal and non-crazy-Ebay-amount) and so I decided to order her, which is, again, quite expensive for Europeans. Still, they have a large variety of different dolls and many are on clearance, which can make up for the shipping costs. Dilettante travelled for one week with a tracking number and arrived in perfect condition. No objections and very recommended!
BONUS: Pullip Style – Link!
If you follow the Pullip-community, you will have heard of Pullip Style! This US-based store has been around for years and if I was living in the United States, it would probably be my number one place to buy Pullips! Until now, I never ordered from them because something else always came up, but I made an account to check their shipping costs and they are quite reasonable! When you do your research on Pullips and stumble upon collectors from the US, chances are high that they ordered their dolls from Pullipstyle, since they are known for their awesome customer service!
Please let me know, if there are any questions left! I will gladly answer them! Where do you buy Pullips?
