After careful consideration I bought a DS
« on: April 26, 2016, 02:35:39 AM »
After researching for a while now, I bought a DS today. As many people have stated their customer service is incredibly good. I had literally 2-3 minute responses to most of my questions during the afternoon and they were more than willing to accommodate a lot of my requests.

Specs: body:167cm | head:Kathy | eye:Brown | skin:LPink | joint:Tight | hand:Bones | nail:Nail | pubes:NoFur | wig:GLong | box:Carton

(I requested custom makeup and also I asked if they were willing to make the joints in the hips and legs loose while the upper torso/waist tight. Best of both worlds right? Being able to cross the legs of the doll and easily rotate it to pose the legs but also have it be able to sit up and hold its arms in poses.) They told me that its completely possible and they were willing to do so free of charge.

Now I just gotta wait.

Congratulations on your purchase, Zanith... The easy part is now done... and now the wait.  Not sure what turnaround time is at DS but hope its reasonable.

I'm sure we'll all look forward to seeing pics when she arrives

Good choice .
Now this is really interesting, theres only a few DS dolls on the forum , I know Nova1 has one but thats the only one I can think of at the moment

As Mahtek said way back about Chinese made dolls the US makers need to look out!
Heard good reports of these dolls so be really interested to see a review when she arrives and I bet it will not take long to arrive either  . :thumb:

Turnaround time on my DS last year was less than two months. The customer service was very good, including prompt replies.

I have not seen a 167 in person, but I do know all other DS models are scaled down relative to Western standards, despite being reasonably tall. My DS163 and Sin1B are the same height, but my DS looks to be my Sin's daughter in scale. The 167 is intended to have a meatier frame which is very welcome. Congrats and best wishes!

Congrats!

I've heard great things about DS but I've been nervous about ordering from the US. Please let us know how your order goes.

What country are you based out of?

Congrats zanith77! You are going to be amazed once she arrives.  The quality, durability and poseability of these dolls really stands out. And the feel is just incredible! Which makes play time that much more enjoyable. I have two DS Dolls which are both 163 cm models. But one is the plus with bigger breast while the other is a standard with smaller breast. The turn around for both of my dolls was about 5 weeks.  Both times pictures where sent to me via email once the dolls was finished and again when final payment was received and the doll was packaged and ready to ship. 

My experience with DS has always been pleasant.  I've never had a question go unanswered and the response time was always quite quick.  I ordered my first DSDoll almost two years ago and have been completely happy. So far I've never had any problems or second thoughts about my purchase and would order another in a heart beat.  Their customer service is pretty much next to none. They are friendly, polite and very professional. In fact when I purchased my second DS I bought one of their sale specials which did not come with a second head.  When I asked if they offered any perks to returning customers. They offered me the second head of my choice for free.   :D

Unfortunately the Customs process in every country is different, and can be hell! I've heard some people say that they ended up paying through the teeth on duties when their DS arrived. But that seems to be the same for any doll that was imported into those countries.   I live in the US and the only Customs fee I had to pay was around $45 for administration.   Which the carrier (DHL) billed me for a few weeks after the doll arrived....  From the time the doll left the DS factory in China till the time she was delivered to my place in southern California. It was only about 3-4 days...

I biggest nightmare I've heard of was someone on.... that other forum whom orders a doll from an Asian manufacturer and had it shipped to the UK. Customers reported him for child porn and the police raided his house confiscating all his electronic devices while they investigated pressing charges against him! Needless to say he never got his doll.

He insisted it wasn't a child doll. He said it was an Asian manufacturer, but not which one. Since this was before DS it couldn't be them. But it does make one nervous about what can happen with customs.

Question, if they took all his electronics, how did he make the post?

someone on.... that other forum
Was his forum name kevtra? Then the story is more than 7 years old, the doll was an Orient Petite Jewel, bought for him and sent to him by Tabo, and never received indeed. He bought a new computer in order to get back online. The thread is only visible for logged in members.

He explained he had to buy a whole new PC.

Specifically it was on TDF. Yes it was an older story. It stood out as being the worst case for a doll owner I ever heard of.

A Petite Jewel? I can certainly see how that would get the cops called on someone. That's the problem dealing with customs.

I've got a 145cm and my experience mirrors Nova's.
I cannot say enough good things about DollSweet's operation.
If I had more space, I'd buy two more of their taller Dolls this year.
Even though my quarters are getting tight, I am considering the DS-DollSweet Mini Eva for $900

Sorry I haven't answered any of your questions or responses.

I reside in the US as well and had no problems with DS at all. I paid via Paypal as it was easier for everyone.

The turn-around time is/was amazingly fast?
Order placed on 04/25
Deposit taken 04/26
Manufacturing began 04/26
Completed 05/09 (2 weeks)
Received pictures of the doll 05/09
Final payment taken 05/09
Shipping 05/09

Now waiting for the delivery.

It took a bit longer because I asked for a hybrid of both soft and tight joints and was being very picky about the face's makeup.

Their customer service is literally on point, answers everything quickly and in a timely manner.
