CHINESE TPE & SILICONE DOLLS - MARKET & DISTRIBUTION ECOSYSTEM

Following false allegations, disloyal and misleading business practices from actors in the industry, as well as several question from our customers who above everything deserve full transparency, we have put up the below schema for you to better understand how the Chinese sex doll market is organized. Who are its main actors, distributors, retailers, but also what scams to avoid.

1ST LAYER: MANUFACTURING

This number is ever growing, but there are currently around 30 sex dolls factories in China (including scams and copies). Most of these factories are located in remote Chinese areas, do not have English customer service, and do not do retail, just like in most industries.

Fine Love Dolls works with the following manufacturers:

  • Manufacturer #1: Location – China – Manufactured brands: WM Doll, OR Doll, YL Doll
  • Manufacturer #2: Location – China – Manufactured brands: YL Doll, AS Doll
  • Manufacturer #3: Location – China – Manufactured brands: Climax Doll
  • Manufacturer #4: Location – China – Manufactured brands: 6YE Doll

WMDOLL.COM

www.wmdoll.com is NOT the factory producing WM, OR, YL Doll models. This distributor uses the same domain name as the brands which is a misleading practice. This distributor has NO exclusivity on any dolls coming from this factory.

JYDOLL.COM

www.jydoll.com is NOT the factory producing JY, AS Doll models. This distributor uses the same domain name as the brands which is a misleading practice. This distributor has NO exclusivity on any dolls coming from this factory.

6YEDOLLGLOBAL.COM

www.6yedollglobal.com is NOT the factory producing 6YE Doll models. This distributor uses the same domain name as the brands which is a misleading practice. This distributor has NO exclusivity on any dolls coming from this factory.

2ND LAYER: 1ST LEVEL DISTRIBUTORS

This number is ever also ever growing, but there are already dozens of 1st level. 1st level, or what our competitors like to call “authorized resellers” are companies working directly with the factory, just like Fine Love Dolls. Most are Chinese registered distributors operating in strong ties with production on spot, in Chinese.

Just like any distributors in any industry, because of our monthly volumes, we can guarantee lower prices, especially lower than 2nd level distributors.

So what is the difference between us and them? Fine Love Dolls only has 1 website and focuses on B2C retail. We are the direct link you will not find elsewhere to the manufacturer. Our dolls are shipped straight from the factory once freshly manufactured, and do not get used for photo shooting purposes in between, or kept as a pre-customized stock somewhere, as some like to do.

Most other 1st level distributors do B2B wholesale. They develop an affiliate network of 2st level retailers, which is 99% of the retailers you can find online. This nebula also owns TDF aka The Doll Forum.

SEX DOLLS FORUMS: BEWARE!

There are 2 main specialized forums about sex dolls. The 1st one is TDF mentioned above. The 2nd one is ODC aka Our Doll Community. We strongly recommend that you use OUR DOLL COMMUNITY,  if you are seeking for advices on the right website to buy your doll from.

Our Doll Community (ODC) is a specialized forum administrated by doll owners for doll owners and not by distributors with conflict of interest.

ABOUT TDF

Be careful of fake companies selling fake dolls! The Doll Forum has disloyal business practice and misleading customers is one thing, but there are still scammers and fake distributors resellers out there!

3RD LAYER: 2ND LEVEL RETAILERS

This is latest distribution layer(s). These resellers represent 95% of the sex doll websites online, and are part of the reselling network built by the 1st layer distributors mentioned above.

We do not recommend that you buy from these resellers. The high number of intermediaries makes your order being heard through the grapevine, and the risk of mistake or misunderstanding is higher.

NO LEGAL PROTECTION

Usually these websites are operated from countries outside China, meaning no legal recourse against the manufacturer or way to protect you as a consumer anyhow

HOW TO SPOT THEM: THE QUICK WAY

A lot of fake shops use real pictures to sell fake dolls or copies. The best way to make sure that you are buying from a legit doll reseller is to ask him for factory pictures of a given combination (head + body) of your choice.

Generally if there are extra distribution layers, you won’t be able to, as this is too time consuming on their end. If it is a fake reseller, he will simply not be able to provide the combination you have asked him either.

AVOID B2B MARKETPLACES

Alibaba, eBay, Amazon, all of these marketplaces are home to absolutely ALL doll scammers. You will not find the factories there either. Avoid these fake merchants at all cost or you strongly risk ending up with a blowup doll instead…

DO NOT ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE CHEAPEST OR YOU MIGHT REGRET IT

Fine Love Dolls is a small company, with reasonable low margin. Web development, logistics, marketing, etc…everything is managed in-house by our teams.

We keep operating costs as low as they can get. So if you find a reseller cheaper from us by several hundreds of dollars, this can only be a scam. If it is too good to be true, it usually is.

A lot of websites uses real product pictures to sell copies at prices that do not even cover production cost + shipping.

BEWARE OF

  • Websites without “HTTPS” in the URL -> no SSL certificate, your data are therefore not secured on these websites (You should see a green lock icon in the URL search bar)
  • Websites pretending to be the manufacturer, or the factory. If they fool you once, they will fool you twice.
  • Websites making you pay extra for options, such as the new skeleton. This is a greedy way to take your money.
  • Websites you have never heard of before on any doll forum.

I GOT A LOOK-A-LIKE COPY FOR CHEAPER, SO?

Counterfeit production is a national sport in China. With a copy of a mould you can basically copy a doll, you can even copy her so well that an unexperienced buyer might not even be able to tell the difference.

The difference is in the overall quality. The TPE blend, the skeleton, the details. These fake dolls will break within a few weeks/months. The TPE will start the crackle and tear open, the skeleton joints will also break.

As we are not sure what these fake blends are made of, it could also potentially be harmful to your health. Because of the chemical that have potentially been used during the manufacturing process.

TPE blends vary from one manufacturer to the other, so a combination fake body copy + real head will not have a uniform tone either between the two.
