Yes ... more like ripping her taint ... it seems like this MIGHT be a problem area ... you'll understand after you get your Kelu. Did you get an estimate as to when you'll receiver her?? Last I heard about my Kelu, she was scheduled to be ready by May 5 ... so I'm getting pretty anxious too! 'Becca should be pretty happy, too ... she'll get a chance to rest!! :wink: And she'll have a sister to chat with when they're alone. (can't wait to see what kind of "evil plans" they'll come up with)

The only estimate I got was the 16 weeks they say on the site. I was told over a week ago that she's in production at least. All I could change was eyes and hair at that point. Payment cleared 2/25 (technically, the Friday before that, but they weren't open until Monday).

When did you order yours?

TheMan, sorry 'bout the delayed response ... they got my check Jan 2, 2013. Just got an answer today from VRD about estimated shipping date and he says we're still on schedule for May 5-ish (first week of May basically). Plus he checked to see if I had ordered Kelu an extra wig ... I didn't remember if I had or not ... and I did ... D'OH!!! :oops:

Let's see here... 16 weeks ~ 4 months ... I'm gonna guess yours might be ready about 2nd to 3rd week of June??? Hang in there buddy!!! I'm sure it's gonna be worth it! :wink:

Thanks MrLucky2! She's definitely a sweetheart AND a great travel companion, too. Conforms to almost ANY suitcase/carry-on and none the wiser!
Cheers,
Von

von_Shredhead, you have both a Kelu and a Floppy now from VRD, right? How do you like them both? Which do you spend more time with?

Howdy Sxpanther, yes I have both and I like 'em both pretty much equally. Each has their own specialties for funtimes. I would have to say Kelu gets more of my time for play and Floppy gets more cuddle time. Each has advantages depending on situation. I know this is kinda vague (my brain has not fully awakened yet) but if you would like a more in-depth comparison, feel free to ask or PM me. I'll surely have had my coffee by then ... :)

Groggy Cheers,
Von

I can see what you mean, the frame would get in the way of cuddle time. Do they both float in the water (tub)?
I get excited that you have two dollies to play with ~ Image
Is there anything to a new Kelu owner that you would advise?

Exactly!! No worries about twisting/bending her (non-existent) skeleton the wrong way.

As far as floating ... both are kinda neutral buoyancy, they actually "float" very similar to humans. IF they had lungs, they could rise and fall with each breath taken, but since they do not have lungs, they kinda just become "weightless" ... neither floating nor sinking ... well Kelu sinks a bit since she has a bit of metal in her skeleton, but doesn't sink like a rock would. In deep water, like a pool or pond, I would put some little tiny floats on her arms or a tiny little swim ring just to keep her from sinking and getting lost in a current or undertow.

Wig size (saw in another post) ... 12/13's do fit very nicely. The better quality wigs will have an adjustable strap for taking up any looseness if the wig is slightly too large.

Advice for new Kelu/Floppy owners ... Be careful and get to know her well. Do not push her joints hard, they have limits. When feeling any resistance ... STOP!! Her skeleton will become looser/smoother as she "breaks in" and her "limits" will be a bit more forgiving with time.

When bathing/drying, do not scrub hard when washing her, especially her "painted" areas ... dry her after a bath by patting her dry ... do not rub. Give her a fresh all over powdering when finished ... makes dressing her soooo much easier. And makes her skin silky smooth.

Watch the eyelashes, they MAY loosen over time and will most likely "clump" together eventually. I don't know if there is a way to prevent the "clumping" ... perhaps someone knowledgeable can pipe in here and help out.

That's about it from my experiences with both these awesome little dolls.

Are you selling your VRD?? I saw in another thread that you "wish you could keep her". I hope your wish comes true!

Cheers,
Von

Thanks von_Shredhead, that really helps out a lot answering my questions that I had.
I will be sure to use little floaties in the water and buy better quality wigs when the time comes. It sounds like the joints are extra sensitive when they are new being as opposed to Kelu dollies being known for their durability. How do you work around the scrubbing when washing to prevent damage to her and her pained areas?

Your more than welcome Sxpanther ... glad to help!

The joints are just kinda tight when she's brand new and may stick a bit ... so don't mistakenly push 'em too hard past "normal". After they have some mileage on 'em, you'll know exactly where the range limits are. Make sense?? She IS a very durable little thing and will get better with age!!

Scrubbing ... do not ... just gently glide a soapy wash cloth over her. DO NOT scrub her face, just give it a rinse with soapy water and then clean water and she'll be clean. As far as soaps ... I just use dish soap ... Citrus scented. Don't use lye heavy bar soaps ... best to avoid bar soaps ... period.

I take it that you are not selling your VRD? Must have been a rumor, eh? KEWL!!

Cheers,
Von
