I notice the site has been down for some days. Anything newsworthy?

Indeed, the website of Doll Story is closed.

A new website is created http://www.4woods.eu (only available in French at the moment). The English version is coming.
Doll Story disappears and leaves at 4Woods Europe. But it is the same team (Siham, Myriam and Jean-Philippe) and the same know-how.

Three bodies made in France are proposed: AI Doll Max; AI Doll S + and AI NEO Im.

A new e-mail address is created: 4wds.contact@gmail.com


The Director explains these reasons:
A brand new start : Doll Story ceases its activity, and leaves the room to 4Woods Europe.

Jean-Philippe Carry explains :

“I have created Doll Story company in 2006, in order to distribute 4Woods dolls in Europe. At that time, the dolls were all manufactured in Japan and Doll Story was in charge of the importation for our customers.

Then in 2011, right after Fukushima’s earthquake, Okawa-san (CEO of 4Woods Japan) suggested that we build a manufacture unit in France. We have partnered in this project, and created 4Woods Europe together.

Doll Story company therefore distributed both dolls made in Japan (from 4Woods Japan), and dolls manufactured in France (from 4Woods Europe). But as the years went on, the Euro/Yen currency has become increasingly unfavorable, making our importations from Japan economically impossible. Doll Story's import activity had to stop, and leave room for our French workshop : 4Woods Europe.

It is always sad for an entrepreneur to lose one of his companies, but in the end this event is totally in favor of our customers. Our team is always the same, we have a perfectly productive workshop, and now without intermediaries to sell our dolls, we can distribute them directly from 4Woods Europe, at much cheaper prices, and through a brand new website : http://www.4woods.eu.
Our customers keep the loyal interlocutors that we are, take advantage of a unique after-sale service in Europe, and enjoy our magnificent creations at a lower cost.

I sincerely thank all our customers who have trusted us for all these years !”

Jean-Philippe Carry

Thanks Fred  8)
It was actually "Valerie"
( she whispered it in my ear in French & I just used Google Translate to make it legible )
I am still turned on by it, but now that I know those were not her own words....It's inconclusive!

Ok, I see.

They will then only offer those 3 models? I was looking forward to getting Evo II from them.


Is it a new company? What happens to old dollstory and orders? Or is  it just a renaming and change of focus?

The other bodies are available on request.
This is not a new company because 4Woods Europe exists since 2011.
It's a name change, Doll Story becomes 4Woods Europe.
It is the same team with the same customer service and always the same partnership with 4Woods Japan.
