Ball-jointed dolls (BJD) are unique with ball and socket joints that accommodate movement, and often feature overly exaggerated expressions as influenced by Japanese animation. Many of these are of vinyl fabrication.
The more recent BJD market was introduced by the Volks renown series of Super Dollfie in 1999, the name is often used as a blanket term when referring to Asian BJDs from any manufacturer, similar to Kleenex for tissues.
Resin ball-jointed fashion dolls such as JAMIEShow dolls are more of a 1/4-scale than the 1/3-scale of Asian BJDs. their distinctive features appear lifelike, more proportionate and less childlike.
