Loli Anime Dolls Master Post
It won't be a definitive list of everything available, as there are also many indie doll makers from Japan and China that are a bit more tricky to buy from if you are a Westerner. Overall, the post should serve as a strong foundation.
It gets more tricky to mix and match between manufacturers if you choose a dark skin tone, whoever. Dark skin tones can vary the most per batch of dolls made.
Please note that you should ask the manufacturers or vendors if the specific head you are wanting to use is unlikely to react negatively (chemical reaction) with the body of another manufacturer. Every manufacturer has their own formula of the materials they use. There is also the chance of skin tone mismatching with the body you use. The safest option is a fabric doll head with an M16 connection.
If mixing body and heads from different brands, make sure your head and body of choice are compatible in the type of connection they use to attach to each other. Most dolls are an M16 connection but when it doubt, always ask the manufacturer or vendor.
Everything is organized in alphabetical order without a bias in position. (Unless I make mistake with the alphabet!)
Pictures are all clickable to view their full size.
Please also note that in order to keep the blog more accessible, I will try to stay away from nude pictures but all manufacturers and vendors will provide you with such pictures by default or upon request.
※ When buying a TPE doll, ask the manufacturer or vendor for a block of TPE of the same material batch your doll was made from or at the very least, the same skin color.
This is a life saver if your doll suffers damage, as you may be able to repair it yourself. Trust me, I wish I had known about this when I bought my doll. My doll did come with a TPE block but in the entirely wrong skin tone, so it could not be used for the repairs I needed.
If you had already bought a doll, it is possible to get TPE blocks by asking vendors about them.
※ Some options included may not be strictly sex and love dolls (such as custom anime head makers) but worth mentions due to the excellence of their products.
※ While most manufacturers or vendors sell full dolls, you are allowed to mix and match within a brand by contacting directly. This is known as a custom order.
If you like the face of one doll but not the body, you can replace the body with another of the same brand and vice versa.
Most manufacturers are willing to do custom make-up or eyes for the head, too.
※ If you have any suggestions, find any mistakes, or wish to contest the information provided, please comment on the post. I will check the comments for the blog. I will do my best to provide accurate information based on my own research, what other doll owners tend to collectively agree on, and my own experiences with my doll.
- Manufacturers - Will include TPE, silicone, and fabric options. Includes a briefing on indie ones, too. I will add more when I find them.
- Vendors - If you cannot navigate the websites provided within the manufacturer's section or they do not ship directly to your region, you will need to use a vendor.
They act as middlemen between the factory and customer, as some manufacturers may not sell directly to customers. Some also offer their own line of in-house dolls. I will make sure to mention this.
I strive to provide reputable vendors but when dealing with indie or strictly overseas brands, I cannot guarantee it as there is a language barrier, so you shop at your own risk.
This is THE loli doll manufacturer. They only make and specialize in anime dolls, from flat chest to big breasts.
This brand offers pre-made or customized anime heads. They state on their site that they can make you a doll based on a picture you provide for them, meaning you can have your favorite anime girl as a doll or your own original character. They offer TPE and silicone options.
I will shamelessly say they are probably my favorite doll manufacturer because I enjoy looking at their cute anime dolls so much.
(It's just unfortunate for me they don't offer male bodies. It was the deal breaker for me when looking to buy my first doll.)
https://catdoll.club/ (English site)
One of the most popular small doll manufacturers, Catdoll has offered some anime-like options in the past but in 2022, they launched their own line of specialized anime heads. They were made for their 101cm and 102cm bodies, which are small chested. I have e-mailed Kitty (the owner) before to ask if their anime heads can be used with their bigger bodies and I quote:
"These heads designed for the 101cm and 102cm body. It will be less cute If you fix it on the 133cm body." - In regards to me asking if I could use these heads on my 133cm male doll, also made by them. This can also apply to their many female bodies.
Their anime heads are unique because they have lips and their mouths open. This feature sets them apart from Aotume dolls and it offers a brand new type of anime head in the market that is easily accessible. They also have an alternate version of the anime head model with drawn on lips if you prefer that one.
Generic Brand Mini Dolls
You will find these mini dolls sold by many vendors under their own brand names but they are generic and have many options available. Out of the vendors recommend on this site, Dollter carries these dolls and offers many customization options. The face make up quality is a bit varied, as seen in the 3rd picture. Some look great while others are a bit wonky.
Manufacturer of fabric dolls offering many facial customization options for their dolls.
Another big anime doll manufacturer. They offer more big breasted dolls but their two loli dolls, pictured above, are very unique and cute.
This is a traditional BJD (ball jointed doll) brand from Japan that offers both an 80cm flat chest or small chest body via their Otohime line of products. They also offer an 110cm female body but with breasts. It's still worthy to mention since she has an anime head option and is very cute. PVC, the material BJDs are made of, is very lightweight with many benefits. You can check the newly added PVC section of the Doll Materials post for more information.
There is an anime head and more BJD-esque head option. Their dolls are also not very expensive, with their fully painted Otohime dolls being 39,000 yen. Parabox does ship internationally via EMS or DHL and the site listed above is in English. Since their dolls are traditional, they are not subject to bans by the law.
This is a Japanese manufacturer, specializing in fabric dolls that also have sex functionality.
Fabric dolls are criminally underrated in the West and this brand has shown me how charming they can be. While fabric dolls are less popular in the West, they have big social media presence in Japan. Sakura Doll offers many unique options.
Most notably, what sets them apart from other Japanese manufacturers is that they do provide an easier way for Westerners to buy directly from them. On their webpage, you can scroll down to see they are willing to sell to us. They have a specialized vendor, Estartek, and some agencies, like My Robot Doll and Dollter. All are reputable.
Handmade Anime Loli Brands
※ This is an expanding list as I find more manufacturers for this category
This is a brand I discovered recently, offering beautiful and unique anime doll heads along with TPE bodies. As of the writing of this post, one of their dolls is now also being sold by Dollter, a reputable vendor. They offer many types of heads and notably, they are made of PVC instead of TPE or silicone. This is the first lifesize doll manufacturer I have seen use PVC for heads. An interesting product is their life size BJD head.
ひよこ組 (Hiyokogumi) Dolls
These gorgeous handmade dolls are made by a maker in Japan who calls themselves ひよぬい (Hiyokogumi). The brand specializes and only makes male dolls as of this time but their small 30cm Potanui series dolls are androgynous, so I have included them in this section. They state that they can be contacted on their Twitter for questions and the representative speaks English and can ship internationally! No middleman is required.
The pre-made dolls are posted for sale on their Twitter account and Yahoo!Japan auctions. You can contact them if you wish to purchase it. Hiyokogumi takes payment via Wise or Paypal if necessary. In the future, they may open an Etsy account.
They do take custom orders depending on the request. You need to contact them to discuss details. Please have picture references of what you are looking for and Hiyokogumi cannot do replicas of copyrighted characters. Your own original characters or idea are ok to inquire about.
For months, I was wondering where these dolls came from and I recently found out it is them who are hand making them. Twitter has a lot of happy customers posting dolls that were made by Hiyokogumi. These are daki (hugging) dolls that are very soft and lightweight. Perfect as companions and for cuddling.
The Hiyokogumi account has a pinned tweet with their current series of products. These are translations of the current series along with additional information given to me by their representative:
- 抱きぬい男子 (Hugging Boy) Series: Fabric male dolls made between 80 and 170cm. Some adjusting is required to pose them and some of the dolls can come with skeletons. Inquire if they are offering dolls with toy skeletons currently (they state this is only available sometimes) otherwise, there are no joints, so they cannot stand on their own but changing clothes is easy and commercially available clothes can be worn.
- ぽたぬい (Potanui) Series: Small 30cm dolls with a skeleton that you can pose. The dolls are androgynous.
I highly recommend checking Hiyokogumi out! I now own a custom doll by them and I'm so happy with him!
Nanonano Heavy Industries
A fabric head manufacturer specializing in unique and cute nekomimi (animal ears) heads. They include many eyes and mouth with their heads. They have collaborated with Sakura Dolls before in creating a an animal ears headband for dolls.
This maker makes their heads for a very specific type of fabric doll body.
Their shop states that their heads are made to fit a sewn body designed by https://twitter.com/takanyan_nui.
Instructions for making the body yourself are here: https://takanyan2.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-179.html
The good news is that many middlemen would be willing to buy these for you, as they are not of explicit nature.
Anime Honorable Mentions
They have really unique and cute anime heads. All have breasts, though.
※ A lot of vendors have their dolls; they apparently do have an English site of sorts but it's just completely empty
My Loli Waifu
They offer beautiful and realistic dolls. Worthy mention is their silicone head pictured, which has more expressive and open eyes that makes it look anime-like. Could be combined with one of their flat chest bodies.
I will mark reputable vendors that are well known within circles I frequent. If a vendor is not marked as reputable, it doesn't mean they're aren't. I just have not heard much about them, are too new, or don't have reviews available. The blog aims to be completely transparent about every aspect of dolls. If you believe a vendor is reputable or isn't, please leave a comment with your experience with them.
※ Even if a vendor is located in China or Europe, they will still ship to Western countries. It is just the location of their business and big warehouse. Many vendors have warehouses in different countries to ship their customers' dolls there, which then get transferred to that country's local postal system or a specialized delivery service. Vendors can also use services such as DHL and Fedex.
This is an authorized Catdoll vendor ran by someone who knows the owner of the Catdoll brand. The shop offers Catdolls for lower prices and with the added benefit of also accepting crypto payments. This shop also ships to around the world.
The Doll ChannelStatus: Reputable
A pure American business that is the only one as of the launch of this blog offering small dolls within the USA. This is the store I personally use and endorse since I got my doll. I know the most about them since I have many personal experiences and I have nothing but honest and great things to say.
They have a warehouse with in-stock dolls that do not take as long to arrive to you, as opposed as if they were bought from an overseas vendor. The shop offers an inspection service if you buy a doll that isn't in stock. So you are covered against doll defects or shipping damage.
Ricky, the owner, has provided many easy to digest resources for the doll community such as maintenance videos and general info on the shop's YouTube channel. Some of the videos have to be censored for YT, so you should check out his site for the uncensored versions if interested. He does weekly streams and doll reviews, as well.
Their customer service is also fantastic and you can e-mail them with any inquiry, even regarding helping you get a doll that they may not carry. I have always gotten a fast response and there are also helpers in case Ricky is busy. I can say that TDC offers that excellent customer service that can be overlooked by more mainstream businesses.
The doll community that has been built by this store is very welcoming and helpful. Most of my doll knowledge has come from it and it was priceless resource when I received my first doll. You can join the community via their forum or after buying a product, you can join the Discord. There is no issue if you are buying a small doll, unlike other communities.
If you are an American, I encourage you to support your local businesses! The services offered by TDC are priceless to me because they are so close to home, so there is that extra sense of security to deal within the country, the faster shipping, and they are able to navigate the foreign doll market for you, too.
A very active vendor that interacts with the small doll community, providing new item previews, as of the launch of this blog. They offer many small and anime dolls as well as their own unique in-house dolls.

AliExpress Shop and Feedback
The specialized Western and Chinese vendor for Sakura Dolls. This is not a very talked about vendor within anime doll communities but understandably so, as fabric dolls are niche for us in the West. But this is likely due to the fact that they don't know where to buy them.
I had to do quick research into their feedback and their AliExpress page is all positive at the time this blog lauched and they seem to really strive for positive customer feedback. So I have given them the green light as a vendor.
They also sell other types of dolls and figures on their website and on their AliExpress shop.
A very active vendor that interacts within the small doll community, providing new item previews, as of the launch of this blog. One of the largest and established vendors, offering small and anime dolls for many years.
Status: Reputable ※ See Notes
Another vendor that isn't as talked about in the West anime doll communities as often but does come up in conversations sometimes as "Are they legit?" since they offer Irokebijin dolls.
Yes, they are legit and they have reviews on their site. They state they launched their Western brand in 2020 and have been in business in Japan far longer.
It is also the recommended shop of a well known sex doll porn maker. https://twitter.com/wiassR18
European based vendor with glowing reviews that accepts payment in Euro and they speak English, French and Dutch. They offer a large selection of all types of dolls and ship to many places including the USA.
