HI NICKY! HOW THE HELL ARE YA MAN!

Are your girls very heavy?

No.   I'd say they range at no less than 10lbs to no more than around 20lbs, naked.   They are silicone mix on the outside and foam inside, so it cuts down drastically on their weight, as well as expense.  It's difficult though moving them up onto the higher and even the lower shelves if they are not in the boxes.  When they are, it's super easy, pick them on up, slide them right into place.  They are all back in their boxes resting right now, except for Lovely Leeza, she's out with ME!  ;D

I couldn't imagine trying to get Eachann off of a bunk as high as the top bunk you have!  I'd break my BACK!! :(

Yeah you would!  I wouldn't want that to happen!  I have no idea just how heavy high end dolls feel, since I have never met any other dollies besides the ones I have.  My back hurts some just when undressing, cleaning, and dressing my dollies back up again.  The middle part of my back.   I try hard to do the proper lifting techniques, to minimize aches and strain on my back, but still.

I'm GOOD, N.---Thanks for asking! ;D

That is awesome that your dollies are lightweight.  I figured since they are petite they would weigh less---but, I had no idea they were SUBSTANTIALLY LIGHTER!!  I am not a huge fan of the heavy weight of my Boy.  There are times when the heft of his body is nice ( ;)) but for the most part, it just gets tedious getting him moved around!  I wish there was a manufacturer making a male-doll that were made like your dollies are---lightweight! 
Even if the doll ended up weighing 60 or 70 lbs---that is better than 100!

I would love to have a collection of cuties in our home like you have!  I keep picturing "Naughty Tea Parties"!!!! ;) ;) ;) :P :P :P

dollluver:  Yes, the cost is very prohibitive.  I am STILL BROKE after purchasing E! :(

I didn't know Eachann weighed that much!   :o

Pygmalion's Galatea was made of ivory, so I imagine she weighed even more than any of our dolls do!   :o
