    1. TPE DOLLS SKELETONS

    We use the latest generation skeletons or our TPE dolls. Our skeletons have body joints made of multiplex metal to guarantee any sorts of poses, just like a real person.

    Hands and fingers are all individually articulated as well. Feet are also articulated, and can move up and down. If you choose the option stand-up, your doll will also be able to stand up by herself thanks to metal screws in each of her feet.

    Please note that it might be hard without experience, to find the right balance for your doll at first.

    We strongly recommend that your doll wears shoes for extra ground stability (be careful as screws can damage the screw soles. Do not hesitate to add a piece of protection wood in the shoe).

    Make sure to check our guide on how to handle and manipulate TPE Dolls here.

    Please see below picture for more details about our TPE dolls skeleton:


    1.1. UPGRADED SKELETONS

    Available for: WM Doll | YL Doll | OR Doll | JY Doll | AS Doll | Irontech Doll

    The new skeleton available for WM Doll, JY Doll, AS Doll, YL Doll, OR Doll, SM DollIrontech Doll models is made out of stainless steel. This skeleton is the exact same for all brands listed above.

    This skeletons has shrugging shoulders, which enables a greater movement range than the standard skeleton.

    The upgraded skeleton has a hinged neck system (like the other joints of the body, or like a door would).

    Most movement ranges are the same with the upgraded skeleton or the standard skeleton.

    We provide the upgraded skeleton by default for all brands listed above. If you prefer the standard skeleton for your order, you can tick the check box “I want the old skeleton instead” on the checkout page.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     


    1.2. STANDARD SKELETON

    Available for: Climax Doll | WM Doll | YL Doll | OR Doll | JY Doll | AS Doll | Irontech Doll | SM Doll

    You can select between 2 different types of skeletons at checkout on the above brands. The latest generation skeleton (top picture) costs the same price, but takes slightly longer to produce.

    The standard skeleton is the same as the new skeleton, but without the shrugging shoulders (straight bar for the shoulders). It is usually faster to produce, than the latest generation version.

    This kind is available for Piper Doll & Climax Doll models. Both skeletons include articulated hands and feet as well. Thread screw pitch diameter is the same for all brands listed above – 15mm (0.6in).

    If you need extra connector(s) and/or eyebolt(s) for your TPE doll, please visit this page.

    NOTE: In order to avoid industrial intellectual property theft, manufacturers do not display the exact version of the actual skeleton, which is more complex than the above picture.

     

     

     

     


    1.3. 6YE PREMIUM MODELS

    Available for: 6YE Doll

    6YE Premium uses a different approach than competitors to TPE Doll skeletons. First the material being used is hollow aluminum (against stainless steel for the other brands), making the doll easier to carry and to handle. More suitable for people with back problems for example. This however, makes the skeleton slightly less resistant.

    The new skeleton is also available for 6YE models (with shrugging shoulders)

    The joint articulations are a ball wrist clipping system, which prevents joints from sometimes being too tight at reception of your doll, or too loose over extended periods of times. This however, makes the joints less resistant.

    The head connects to the body a different way than the other manufacturers, and uses its own thread screw clipping system. This thread screw pitch diameter is also compatible with the other brands listed above, or with our suspension kit.


    1.4. DH168 | PIPER DOLL | D4E SKELETONS

    Available for: Dollhouse168 | Piper Doll | Doll Forever

    dollhouse 168 evo skeleton dh168These 3 brands are produced by the same manufacturer. Dollhouse 168, Doll 4Ever, and Piper Doll also propose 2 kinds of skeletons, a standard and an upgraded one. Both skeletons are close to the skeletons used by the other TPE Doll brands.

    1.4.1. Upgraded skeleton EVO:

    The upgraded skeleton “EVO” has the shrugging shoulders ability, and an even larger movement ranges on the legs than the upgraded skeleton of the other brands (W shape sitting + squat position).

    This skeleton type also has an hinged neck and is made of stainless steel.

    1.4.2. Standard skeleton:

    The standard skeleton for these 3 brands is similar to the standard skeleton being used by every other TPE Doll brand (except 6YE premium).


    1.5. SM DOLL SKELETONS

    Available for: SM Doll

    SM Doll has developed its own proprietary skeleton, which is fairly similar to WM Doll’s structure. You can also choose between the regular skeleton (gooseneck + fixed shoulders) or the SM Doll EVO Skeleton (hinged neck + shrugging shoulders). 

    Moreover, SM Doll EVO skeleton have the ability to stand in squatting position, and sit with legs in “W” shape, just like Piper Doll, Doll 4Ever or Dollhouse168.


    2. HEAD + BODY CONNECTORS

    Besides Piper Doll, 6YE Premium & Dollhouse 168, TPE dolls heads of all manufacturers are interchangeables, and all thread screw pitch diameters are the same, as mentioned above.

    If you are using our doll customizer to order, please note that you can only select a head and a body from the same manufacturer, as TPE blend tones vary from one manufacturer to the other. You would end up with a head and a body not having the same uniform color.


    2.1 STANDARD SCREW CONNECTORS

    Compatible with: WM Doll | YL Doll | OR Doll | SM Doll | JY Doll | AS Doll | Irontech Doll | Doll 4Ever | 6YE Doll (bodies only) | Climax Doll

    The screw is a socket set screw (meaning a screw without a head) and can be removed and replaced with the eyebolt of our suspension kit or with the screw of our headstands such as our tripod headstand.


    2.1.1 ADVANTAGES OF THE STANDARD CONNECTOR:

    + Provides a safer fixation system than the new quick connector

    + Cheaper than the TPE Doll head to body quick connector

    + Included with all TPE Doll brands

    2.1.2 DISADVANTAGES OF THE STANDARD CONNECTOR:

    – Limited movement range if you fully screw it (it will block on the left angle)

    – Easier to drop the head during manipulation (be careful when unscrewing the head off the body)

    – More time consuming to assemble your doll head onto the body (requires several spins)


    2.2 NEW TPE DOLL QUICK CONNECTORS

    + Head is quick and easy to put on or off the body

    + More fluid movement range for both left and right angles

    2.2.2 DISADVANTAGES OF THE NEW QUICK CONNECTOR:

    – Not as secure as a fixation system as the standard connector (if your accidently uppercut your doll, the head could fall off)


    2.3 6YE DOLL QUICK CONNECTORS

    6YE Premium also uses the same approach as the new quick connector above. The head is fixed to the body thanks to a ball lock quick connector, as per above pictures.

    This system is also compatible with our suspension kit, but only for the body, not for the head (quick connector is fixed into it).


    2.4 DOLLHOUSE 168 QUICK CONNECTORS

     

     

     

     

     

    Dollhouse 168 also uses their own head and body connectors, which are quite similar to 6YE ones.

    You do not need to screw the head onto the body, and can simply plug it in and out. This system also enables a greater fluidity during movements of the head.

    The screw connector is compatible with our suspension kit, which can be screwed on top of the connector, just like any other models.


    2.5 SM DOLL QUICK CONNECTORS

    sm doll quick connectorSM Doll also uses their own head and body quick connectors, but WM Doll quick connectors from above are also compatible with SM Doll EVO head or body thread pitches.

    You do not need to screw the head onto the body, and can simply plug it in and out. This system also enables a greater fluidity during movements of the head.

    The screw connector is compatible with our suspension kit, which can be screwed on top of the connector, just like any other models.

    This option being quite new, we did not get to implement it yet onto each SM Doll product page.

    If you are ordering an SM Doll model and wish to have the new quick connector, please let us know as a side note at checkout. Thank you for your understanding.


    2.6 DOLL HEADSTAND CONNECTORS

    TPE Dolls heads can be placed down but this does not give you a great angle if you are to change your doll’s eyes or her makeup for example. We therefore recommend you to use a headstand for greater convenience.

    Compatible with the following brands: WM Doll | YL Doll | OR Doll | JY Doll | AS Doll | SM Doll | Irontech Doll | Climax Doll | Doll 4Ever
