- New technologies are being actively developed and introduced into dolls production. New materials allow you to create realistic dolls, only fans of dolls are accustomed to hinge joints, and now the new dolls are actively winning the shelves of puppet collections.
It is impossible not to write about modern dolls, so this article is devoted to the Chinese doll, Phicen. Phicen is a doll with a seamless body, silicone skin and soft to the touch as a person, by the way, Phicen treat Action Figures.
Phicen is produced in China. The look of this dolls t is astonishing, its realism and ability to take incredible poses of the body.
I saw this doll by chance, and I wrote it down for myself to think about buying it in the future, until one of the customers asked me about it. She wrote, “Aren’t you going to buy it, because I have ideas on how to dress it up?)
This message was the final point in the decision to buy it!
The doll arrived. I won’t hide my disappointment, but I won’t hide my surprise either.
Girl, most likely a woman) height of almost 15 cm. With 26 points of articulation. Very, very pleasant to the touch. Sold in a transparent plastic box with additional accessories: gesture handles and feet under the shoes with heels and a simple set of allegedly ingenious linen). In addition, there is an instruction with a detailed description of the doll’s functionality.
My doll belongs to the second generation of these dolls.
The inner skeleton of the second group of dolls is made of strong stainless steel and has 26 points of articulation with spherical joints.
The bodies can be given countless dynamic poses without much effort. The steel metal frame is covered with a non-toxic, strong, elastic material specially developed for Phicen’s body, it is easy to wash and feels good.
The first generation had a plastic skeleton.
Phicen 1/6 dolls are most popular. But the principle of production is the same.
The first thing I didn’t like was the imbalance between head and body in normal proportions. In response to my letter, the company wrote that they planned to produce different heads for dolls at a scale of 1:12.
In addition to the body, head and extra pens and feet, there was a set of underwear in the box that I didn’t even try on. Because the material of the doll is not happy with unnecessary changes of clothes (
I was pleased with the incredible mobility of the girl, she can do everything that a real person, her poses are very natural. Unless the fold of her elbow gives her a doll. Minus the material is its subtlety and sometimes it is dangerously translucent.
The hinges move well and effortlessly, and are well fixed. Only the head is not too mobile, it can be rotated around its axis, a little down, but you can’t lift it up. In general, the doll seems reliable and strong, even silicone is not too frightening.
The manufacturer recommends not to leave the doll in a bent state and to store it in a flat position so that no cracks or crevices are formed on the silicone.
Tight rubber bands, hooks, and buttons on clothes can leave marks on the doll’s body, so clothes should not compress silicone, but rather store the doll without clothes.
Wash the doll with baby powder or talcum powder to prevent it from sticking to dirt and hair.
I tried to put on a pair of dresses and realized that knitwear is not recommended for her. It is difficult to stretch a knitted fabric on silicone hands.
Well, a little positive, my husband squeezed her and said that nothing, a pleasant feeling) But! This doll is not for children’s games!

Have you found which other mainstream doll clothes fit Phicen dolls the best? I recently bought my first Phicen doll (23B) in order to build superhero models for our theater room. Specifically, Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Barbie seems to have replica of the WW outfits but I’m hesitant to see if they fit. There’s also another doll maker of 16″ dolls (Tonner) which has nice outfits but I’m afraid they may too big? Need help from folks how may have already gone through this challenge. Thanks!!
Hey, Bert. I suppose you could look into this group on Facebook. It’s dedicated to this guy’s dolls. I’m sure that’s where you’ll find all the information you need. My puppet’s small.
